matt76, Remember that the Chinese can sell us a lot of electronics but we would not have any way to deliver them to the stores(no trucks) also all the ship that were here will not work ether! Airplanes will not work ether.
All of that would need to be repaired first. I think that may take a year or two don’t you think? Then comes the problem of the computers with everyone’s finances(bank accounts) all gone! Also no Credit Cards! No Jobs!
If they protect the grid it will help, this will make things come back in two to three years and not in ten years.
Still there will be a lot of dead people and the problem with crime will be big. Once they have trucks to deliver we will see how many will make it to the stores.
I just hope it doesn’t happen because if it does it is going to take a long time for everything to come back.
