Prelude

Surviving war on homeland soil encompasses a great deal of factors and variations which are specific for each scenario. Since no two wars are exactly the same, ... neither are the solutions. With that being said there are measures that can be utilized with the aim of increasing the potential for surviving the many variations of events. As mentioned in the description and situations of war on homeland soil, ... war has an effect for almost everyone living within an impacted region. Enhancing awareness, preparation and training as well as having a keen sense of intuition are just a few objectives to be addressed which can aid in the success of surviving such a disaster. Becoming familiar with our advantageous against what can place ourselves at higher risk is equally important to consider for each scenario or event. The most simplistic remedy for avoiding the effects of war is to stay as far away from a hot zone as possible and to remain undetected. Surviving the effects of a homeland war is often considered a form of art which requires some degree of preparedness. Survival minded enthusiasts typically understand the need to be ready at all times and are deliberate in the practice of being prepared for such an event.  It's better to be ready than to be caught off guard.

The Art of War

"It is a doctrine of war not to assume the enemy will not come, but rather to rely on one's readiness to meet him; not to presume that he will not attack, but rather to make one's self invincible".  

Sun Tzu, ...  c.400-320 b.c.

Prior to an event

.

With the exception of a nuclear type attack, ... the following content makes reference to solutions for conventional type wars or the occupation by oppressive forces on a homeland nation. Although a deliberate nuclear attack against a proposed enemy can prompt retaliation, ... the circumstances involving such an attack can be so severe that solutions for survival are less attractive. Solutions for nuclear events can be found on an alternate content page as follows. [Survive Nuclear Event]. During a conventional type war on homeland soil, ... such as associated with civil wars or foreign invasions, ... it can be advantageous in having a better understanding as to when and how such an event might begin.

The concept of having inside information or a predetermined notion that such an event is about to occur can be extrapolated by exposing ones self to pertinent or relative data and information followed by a sensible degree of deduction. Survival minded enthusiasts are guilty of such routine exposure and as a result are often labeled as "conspiracy theorists." That is of course until such a time when their assumptions come true. By that time it is too late for those who disregarded such predetermined notions as paranoid or lunatic gestures. Survival minded enthusiasts are unique in character with a strong desire to live beyond the moment or calamity. They are anything but paranoid or insecure. Truth be told, ... most people who engage in acquiring information with the aim or surviving disasters are far more secure with themselves than those who choose to disregard potentials for disasters to happen at all. The results of gaining additional knowledge and keeping an open mind to can enhance our abilities so as to change the outcome for our lives during such events. Knowledge is a primary key in surviving most calamities and disasters. What we do with that knowledge is even more important. Knowledge without action is pointless.

Communication devices and skills can add to acquiring the appropriate knowledge and information which can be conducive for survival. The acquisition and implementation of scanners and two way radios can add to the quest of gaining additional knowledge about troop movements etc. Radios can be "peaked & tuned" for maximum efficiency when monitoring secret frequencies not typically allowed by civilians. Some other devices known to be advantageous are satellite phones, laser pointers, codes systems, flags, pigeons etc.  [How to peak & tune a CB radio]

Acting on new found data and information is crucial in getting to the next stages for surviving those times of chaos. What we do and the actions we take can often determine our fate. Survival minded enthusiasts who believe their homeland nation may be attacked in the near future will often make preparations ahead of time so as to increase their odds during engagement or to disappear out of harms way. Provisions, sustenance, defensive measures and secondary bug out locations are all essential aspects to consider during such events. To be more self reliant on our abilities and skills will most certainly enhance the chances of surviving war on homeland soil. Developing a plan of action is the result from the culmination of research, ... preparation and desire to live. A reasonable plan of action might include the following:

.

»  Self reliance:

Defined as the ability to rely on one's self for the variation of aspects associated with surviving any number of lifestyles. To become self reliant can be applicable for any number of lifestyles but starts with basic needs for sustenance, clothing, shelter and defense. The basic concept of self reliance is to live without the assistance from or provisions from other sources. To provide for ourselves.

.

»  Escape routes:

A reasonable plan of action during such an event might include having a few places for escaping to and alternate routes to get there with just in case leaving becomes important. Be aware and expect that others may have the same idea. We see it in those movies every time a disaster occurs. Freeways and roads leaving the big city are jammed packed with cars trying to get out of town. It is advantageous to think outside the box and become smarter than the majority. Utilizing alternate forms of transportation can make the difference between getting out successfully or being caught in a military campaign against our desire. Motorcycles, 4 X 4 vehicles and even bicycles may serve to be more effective during these types of events. [Make a bug out plan]

.

»  Storing provisions:

It is always a smarter idea to include the storage of provisions during these types of events. In most situations it can be expected that forces on both sides will take control of resources and goods for the use by troops and other logistical needs. The existence of military forces and their campaigns to advance can not be sustained without provisions. A successful game plan for military strategists is to include the concept of confiscation of said resources. To take from regions what they need instead of bringing it with them which is costly and slows the forward  advances down. Having enough food, water and fuel is important when considering escaping to safe zones. Just the same are for those looking to hunker down and shelter in place. A good plan of action for those considering such measures might include not only storing enough provision for months but gaining the skills to produce food as well. Hiding those provisions is equally important.

.

»  Defensive measures:

It would be advantageous to consider appropriate defensive measures and account for those who may become desperate in acquiring our supplies and provisions.  Skills and training are not always enough during times of chaos and disaster. Appropriate defensive measures involve a degree of intuition and weaponry as well. Having a better understanding for human nature and what people are capable of doing to others when under duress can make the difference between surviving and, ... well, ... not so much.

.

»  Developing alliances:

Aligning ourselves with capable and skilled enthusiasts can also be an advantage during times of war occurring on the homeland. Like minded individuals banding together can be the start of making corrective changes with the aim of incurring balance and freedom. "Unity is strength. . . when there is teamwork and collaboration, ... wonderful things can be achieved." Knowing who our alliances are before such an event occurs can be an advantage as well as giving us opportunities to train together in preparation for such an event as war on homeland soil.

.

»  Illusion and deterrents:

Illusionary tactics and deterrents are huge factors during times of homeland wars. Wars occurring on the home land most certainly entail a degree of involvement or participation from active and supportive civilians. This often means that the art of illusion comes into play as being advantageous.  All rules of law will become non existent as citizen portray law enforcement, military officers and rescue services etc. There is no limit to what people can do in the aim of deterring oppressive forces or convincing them of something away from the truth. This is intellectual warfare at its best and worst. Details of illusionary tactics are subject to the interpretation and are applicable for each scenario. A reasonable plan of action might include accommodating for times when pretending or acting as something else may become advantageous or necessary.

During an event

.

This is the time when our general preparations and homework becomes advantageous. However, ... some scenarios are tougher to actually prepare for, ... such as a war that has just been enacted within our own region or town. These are situations that can quickly become disastrous for those who fail to act immediately.

Staying alert to potential hostile activity and where the fighting is most current  within a region is important for those looking to avoid getting caught up with confrontation or ending up as detainees for any reason. Just the same applies to measures of awareness regarding troop movements, activities of law enforcement and other issues which might hinder the progress for surviving such an event. Road closures, martial law, appropriation, and other attributes of war occurring on the homeland are aspects which are often tracked by survival minded enthusiasts. This can be accomplished through various technologies and a network of alliances, (people). Two way radios, flags, mirrors, smoke signals, homing pigeons, human runners, code systems, laser pen lights and other methods can be enacted with the aim of transferring important information from one side of a region to another. These tactics are especially useful for those who intend to stay and fight against their oppressors.

It is important to understand and to consider the unfortunate circumstances to  variables associated with such a disaster during these times of chaos. Variables as such most always involve the unexpected reaction from others, ... especially from those who are unprepared. During a homeland war and upon the onset or beginning of such an event the levels of chaos will be high. Savagery is a common trait among people who are unprepared while in the midst of disastrous situations and  surviving is on the line.  [Various behaviors]

Measures for personal defense and safety will also become a necessity as large amounts of the population will be fighting one another for their lives. Humans are well known for doing unspeakable things to others in the aim of surviving and protecting themselves and family. This means that most all rules of morality are  disregarded as invalid or less important. Those who have been taken off guard during an unexpected start of war and are not prepared in any way would benefit from aligning themselves with survival minded enthusiast.. Be advised that even the toughest and aggressive people can be taken down by little ole ladies. The lack of preparedness is not a license or a skill-set which enables or condones brutality to others. Behavior or idealism as such can incur and have serious repercussions for those considering this sort of survival practices. Measures for personal and group safety include but are not limited to the application of warning systems such as dogs, sensors, lookouts, traps etc. Being creative is advantageous during these times of war on the homeland nation. [Fire arms training] , [Self defense]

Bugging out is something to consider when we find ourselves too close to a "hot" zone for military action or hostile activity. Bugging out is another word for escaping. This sort of escape can be orchestrated within a reasonable thought out plan of action. A reasonable plan of action might include a few stash locations for food and provisions as well as additional fuel for various reasons, ... just in case the escape plan involves leaving in a motorized vehicle. Be aware that fueling stations may be unavailable for use during these moments of bugging out. Knowing how far our fuel will take us is equally important.

Acts of illusion may become something to consider when avoiding oppressive forces or authority. This is often an art form which eludes many people trying to escape a oppressive region. Many survival minded enthusiasts understand the value for the art of illusion. During wars on homeland soil, ... all rules of law and authority are typically disregarded as we tend to default to measures of self preservation and surviving. Acts of illusion encompass the concept of fooling others into believing in something that may or may not be true but offer us that advantage to gain the upper hand. This means that impersonating various trades or authority itself can become an advantage that can result in safe passage or offer moments of superiority when the upper hand can be achieved. Becoming a military soldier or police officer can certainly have its advantageous just as pretending to be fireman or doctor. People tend to believe what they are convinced in to believing. The art of illusion allows crafty survival minded people to slip past the crowd. It works!!!  Remembering that when martial law has been implemented people only see the authority of the uniform, ... not the person behind the uniform. The art of illusion can be an advantage in these circumstances especially when we are wearing a higher ranking uniform of authority. It can most often provide a moment of opportunity to take control of a small unit of soldiers or law enforcement organization. Many such survival minded enthusiasts are retired military soldiers with far more experience in defensive measures and understand the art and use of these sorts of illusionary tactics. Be advised that acts of illusion as such are typically not legal during times of peace and without situations of war being present. They are deterrents used in the aim of surviving oppressive conditions during situations which apply to war occurring on homeland soil. [Examples of illusions]

Isolating ourselves from war infected regions is the best way to avoid being caught up in the effects and consequence of war on a homeland soil. This often means that escaping to areas with less popularity is advantageous. Try not to travel to where others are going or to end up in places of value. Unfortunately these are often areas which require a heavier emphasis on skills associated with being self reliant. These are skills known to be conducive for surviving in the wilderness. This is in the most simplest terms to be in a secluded region and to remain isolated for a longer duration of time without assistance from others.

Resistance may become necessary or something to consider if the decision has been reached to achieve a particular outcome for the region. Passionate and motivated citizens who care deeply about their country often take matters into their own hands by forming cells of resistance. These are typically small groups of people who endeavor to force changes by disrupting the supply-lines and forwarding efforts of the suppressing military forces currently in control of the region.

Examples for such resistance type activities can be seen in cinematic movies such as "Red Dawn 1" & "Red Dawn 2". [Also see "nonviolent resistance movements" ] Some forms of resistance includes tactics associated with capturing advanced technology with the aim of turning it against those who deployed it against the region. Advanced technologies may include drones or other spy equipment and similar type devices or weaponry. It is certainly no secret to understand that people will Undoubtedly attempt to take down flying aircraft or drones by either shooting at them or by the use of garage built EMP devices. Resistance cells must be innovative, creative and resourceful. They must also remain discrete so as to have continual effects throughout a campaign until the objectives have been reached. Infiltrating oppressive forces through the ranks is also advantageous in having substantial effects for counter measures. That may mean that it will be an uncomfortable task to pretend to be loyal subjects of an opposing or suppressing force until the objectives have been reached.

Wars involving the initial act of mass or nuclear attacks require a degree of preparation as well. That particular segment of subject matter is provided on an alternate content page as follows.  [Survive Nuclear Event].

After an event

.

Some wars stand the potential to be over with immediately. These are the types of wars which are hardly considered defensible to most people due to the levels of mass destruction associated with the effects. Counter measures are equally discouraged due to the destructive nature for the entire human race. They are the kind of attacks that disable large regions of population and or destroy military operations on the first attempt. It is the type of attack that is often described as nuclear or similar in nature, ... leaving very little room for retaliation.  Solutions to surviving nuclear events can be found within an alternate content page as follows.  [Survive Nuclear Event].  Conventional wars, ... on the other hand, ... involve a campaign and exchange of fighting which encompass the deployment of troops and such and are waged for longer duration's of time.

Conventional type wars and the effects which follow them are, ... for the most part divided between the rebuilding of society, ... measures of resistance or ending up as submissive to a new authority. There are those who are inherently submissive or unable to put up a reasonable fight and those who are willing to die trying in the attempts to incur balance and freedom.

Being submissive often lasts for a short periods of time until such a position becomes tiring and must be changed one way or another, ... especially when being submissive comes at a great cost to humanity. How long can citizens remain suppressed under the regime of a oppressive administration or occupying force?, ... especially if those citizens where once free. The aim of an oppressive or occupying force in these matters is to somehow win the hearts and minds of their new subjects for a duration that will eventually heal old wounds. As generations pass the extreme pain can be forgotten as citizens acclimate to a new order. Resistance is better off being applied when the pain is fresh in the hearts of the victims for the generation effected. This is an emotional condition that is often considered by the oppressors so they tend to observe or alleviate the age groups with the highest potential to put up a fight or encourage resisting. There are those who choose to continue resisting even after an event has passed until the objectives or levels of freedom have been acquired. They are often and eventually labeled "terrorists" by the new order, ... despite their cause and noble efforts.

If and when a suppressing force has been defeated then the efforts for clean up and restoration for a nation or region can begin yet often involve a degree of issues for concern. These can be difficult times as well as those associated with periods of ongoing wars, ... as they often entail continuing measures for defense and self reliance. Most likely there will be very little or no government assistance and lawlessness may be prevalent throughout the region until such a time when balance has been restored. These often represent times for resetting when liberation and independence allows citizens a new beginning. A chance to re-establish reasonable laws, rules and authority in such a way that is fair and acceptable to its people. This begins an entirely new cycle of development, democracy as well as equality and should be managed by everyone so as to keep a watchful eye out for potential issues in the future. Every society needs a degree of basic laws so as to progress beyond chaos and to prevent a run on lawlessness. It is equally important to monitor those who are given the opportunity in making the laws. This is a position of power and authority. Corruption happens in every society, ... and it often starts with those who are in these positions of making laws. Humans are inevitably self centered and will often curtail rules and regulations in such a way that benefit themselves if given the opportunity to do so. This of course does not apply to everyone but has proven to be common throughout history. Keeping a watchful eye on those who create the laws and preventing them from hijacking the system can assist in incurring balance for the future.  Just the same philosophy should be applied to regimes who implement or force laws by way of executive order.  Always question those who oppose such measures of monitoring and acquiring balance.
