In addition to threats that are local to our region and country, many people elect to invest in a bunker because of threats on a global level. Great numbers of people have growing concerns surrounding the instability of foreign nations having weapons of mass destruction. Then there of course are additional concerns with regard to acts of terror against our county.
Several countries right now that pose a potential threat to us. There are many that fear the instability of North Korea, Syria, Russia and China is leading toward a tipping point. Many people believe it’s only a matter of time until world war 3 occurs. These are people who are currently following world events and what is really happening on the other side of the pond. The same mounting political tensions which led to the first bunker “craze” starting in the 60’s and lasted through the cold war of the 80’s seems to be the very cause for concern today.
A newer issue for Americans is terrorism. Largely sparked in response to the 911 attacks; the wounds from that event ran deep and are branded on the mind of every American. Terrorists cells have focused attacks on civilian events and gatherings striking fear and uncertainty into the hearts of every family. Terrorist are tenacious and harder to fight against then a tangible government. No longer do we only worry about corrupt governments and warring nations but now citizens are worried about a dirty bomb terrorism attack only miles from their homes. Every year, radioactive material is stolen all over the world legitimizing fears about the potential threat of dirty bomb technology. Take a look at this article about recent thefts and incidents involving nuclear material.
Terrorism doesn’t stop with guerrilla soldiers wielding chemical weapons. Our power grid has become the “hot-topic” point of discussion for every American prepper. The power grid is very vulnerable to a terrorist attack and if attacked – it could easily turn into a major life threatening issue leading to civil unrest.
