MountainBiker, I do not think the government cares to feed the cities at all, this is called population reduction period. They will only try to keep people from leaving the cities. The cities will be the camps were they will let everyone die or kill each other.
Rural areas are what the government knows the preppers are all at and they know that they are very well armed and have stored food. These preppers are the danger of the government takeover and they know this. They also know that the local government are with the people so they will fight this with everything they have.
The cities are easy, all they need to do is make sure they all stay inside the cities.
I am posting a new post called “Jade Helm Early? – NY Guard Training Civilian Imprisonment” Read it.
