SHTF Headline News 2017 - Surviving Disasters and Chaos

There are a lot of things that are going on in this world. Like the tension between North Korea and the U.S.A., hurricanes hitting different countries, and much more.

Day by day, we get to face a new challenge in life. This is why we should always be prepared for whatever it will be.

Some top events opened the eyes of different countries to what is happening worldwide. We hear them on the news channel, radio, and even our social media feeds.

This is for us to be aware of and updated on what is happening worldwide to know what to do if it strikes us or our country.

The U.S.A. vs. Korea - Fact or Hoax?

There is a huge controversy that shocked the world.

President Donald Trump was accused of declaring war on North Korea by tweeting that North Korea "won't be around much longer.".

Then, the White House spokesperson Sarah Sanders denied that the United States declared war.

And because of this, North Korea lifts its shields in case the announcement is true. North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho quotes the U.S. President's tweet towards them; " Just heard Foreign Minister of North Korea speak at U.N. If he echoes thoughts of Little Rocket Man, they won't be around much longer!"

And because of this alleged declaration, North Korea is now arming their defense and offense if ever they say "war" will start.

The Foreign Minister of North Korea also added that they have the right to defend their country because the U.S. has already declared war. They also have the right to shoot down the U.S. strategic bombers anytime, even if they are not yet within the area of their country. This is to protect their country and the people living in it. Another thing is that Mr. Kim called the president of the United States a "Mentally Deranged U.S. Dotard," and he would tame with fire.


On the other hand, President Donald Trump threatened to destroy North Korea if the U.S. was imposing to defend itself or an ally.

A Friday after that speech, he tweeted that Kim was a "madman" who would be "tested like never before." And by this statement, North Korea and the United States of America are really in great tension. It is just basically a threat.

But even if this "war threat" is true or just a hoax, it is much safer for us not to panic. Because we don't want any war, and if there is a war, it may be the start of World War III.

Even though we only hear words now, it is still best for us to prepare because there is a huge possibility that these two powerful countries will attack one another.

Syrian Civilians Killed by U.S. Bombings

There are a lot of things that the United States is handling. We all know that the U.S.A.. and North Korea are tense. How much more between the U.S.A. and Syria?

The U.S.A. military aircraft threw a bomb into a school where many students were in their classrooms. And they also hit a marketplace where a lot of people that are dead right after the bomb.

The number of casualties is great, combining the number of deaths from the school and the market.

There is also documentation that states about the U.S. air campaign in Syria, which is one reason why there are many civilian casualties. This is for the U.S.A. to support the Islamic State through the Syrian Democratic Forces.

There are at least 84 civilians, including 30 children, who are dead because of the bombing.

The main target of the bombing is those ISIS members. But there are allegedly only a few members of the group in the area of the bombing. And the people who are in the marketplace are allegedly just ordinary people.

Most of the people there don't have any connection to the Islamic State group.

You can find the largest number of civilians in these areas in Syria. Almost all of the people who live there buy their groceries in the Tagba market. And Mansourah is the school's name where most of the kids go.

U.S.A. vs. ISIS Based in Libya

The U.S. military is also striking the ISIS members who are in Libya. The camp of the ISIS members is only 150 miles from the Southeastern Surf. It is also where they transport their other members in and out of the country. It is also where they get to transport the different kinds of firearms and other kinds of weapons that they use.

The U.S.A. conducted a drone strike in this area. Because they are targeting those members in the training camp in Libya.

After the drone strike, 17 militants were down. And also, the drone strike destroyed three of their vehicles.

According to the African State Commander, ISIS, and Al Qaeda are taking advantage of the land areas where it is ungoverned. They get to use these areas to train their newly recruited members.

Libya is one of the most Muslim countries in the world. It is also one of the places where many ISIS members love to camp or make use of it as their training and trading base.

U.S.A. estimates a hundred members of ISIS that are in the ungoverned areas in Libya. And having a drone strike on them will keep their numbers or their population low. It is also to manage and control the terror strikes shortly.

The downside of this group is that they are gathering a freedom movement in Libya. Because they see this country as the best place to train their recruits.

The launching of terrorist acts in the neighboring countries is also connected to the attacks across Europe. The U.S.A. military states that they will track and hunt every plan that this terrorist group will make. And they will do whatever it takes to stop the acts that they will be doing.

The U.S. military group is not just focusing on the members who are in Libya. They also observe other members located in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Syria, and other possible countries where the other ISIS members are camping.
