There is an old saying about your greatest strength also being your greatest weakness. For the Western world that is our advanced technology that runs our everyday world. A combination of cyber war and basic physical sabotage (from jihadi “refugees”), can do vast damage without ever bringing in regular military troops. After Western nations cull themselves then conventional military could be brought in. Such a scenario is far more likely to me that just lobbing nukes. It preserves the physical assets and the land for the would-be occupiers.
It is in this vein that we should all be thinking about how we would address the basics of food, heat, water, and security if the technological infrastructure were compromised or brought down.
