By Brett MacDonald AMERICA’S FREEDOM FIGHTERS–
The last time Germans were told to stockpile food and water in preparation for a national emergency, the Doomsday Clock was a few seconds to midnight and the United States and the Soviet Union were embroiled in the middle of the Cuban Crisis.
The German news site Faz ran the following headline:
“The Government wants to be prepared for war. What if tomorrow could mean war?”
In a very German, 69-page report published by the German Interior Ministry, the government is encouraging all citizens to stockpile ten days worth of provisions and at least 5 days worth of water per person.
The document said “an attack on German territory, requiring conventional defence of the nation, is unlikely”. But, it said, a major security threat to the nation in future could not be ruled out, so civil defence measures were necessary.
Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere told a group of schoolchildren that Germany must be prepared to react if water or food reserves were poisoned, or if oil and gas supplies were interrupted.
Germany, by virtue of its very bloody history, is actually quite well-equipped for a catastrophe. They have over 2,000 public bunkers in West Germany alone, and they have standing laws that prohibit these shelters from ever being renovated into another purpose.
Additionally, Germany has national stockpiles of milk powder and beans in case of emergencies causing shortages.
