WASHINGTON, Nov 20 (Reuters) - U.S. economic and political clout will decline over the next two decades and the world will be more dangerous, with food and water scarce and advanced weapons plentiful, U.S. spy agencies projected on Thursday... (Editing by Vicki Allen)

Haven't you heard? We're saved, Obama will take care of us all!

Truthfully, maybe the next go-round as a nation will learn from this.  THIS version ain't gonna last much past 2015, if The Messiah keeps it together THAT long.

On a purely amusement level- I cannot wait to see the earth-biscuit crowd of open-toe shoe wearing, Hippie crystal crunchers try and solve this one on a national level and on a personal one.

Conflict is inevitable.

As the saying goes, "those that have no sword can still be slain by the ones that do"...

This report is a sober road sign for those paying attention to what's possible in the near-future.

This report does not surprise me. If anything it validates my thought processes from an external source.

Seems reasonable to me to do as we are doing. I intend to encourage and create small, strong, self reliant communities of folks willing to do some hard work and resist the overlords. I see this modern survival movement gaining momentum as more sheeple wake up as we have and decide to opt of debt slavery, blah blah blah, I know I'm preaching to the choir...

Each of us have an opportunity to be influential here and in the near future. Encourage others to think outside of the box, change paradimes, and prepare!

If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything.
