Selco, I think at the beginning of a SHTF in the U. S. only the military veterans will not have a problem dealing with terror since they have done this before. People like me will have a problem at the beginning. This is why you are right on “prepare, practice and learn to focus on what matters to achieve our goals”. This is very important for all of us that have never been in the military or any war.
Retired and active police officers will be some what ready too.
Many of the people will not be ready for this here. The ISIS problem has reminded us how terror works. Many will run but in the end we will have to deal with it with brute force. This is the only thing they understand.
