I recommend the following before we pull out of Iraq. If you live in a major city, MOVE. If you can not, buy a shotgun and a rifle and possible a hand gun, I suggest 3 to 5 hundred rounds of ammo for each. If your in a city that doesn't allow weapons I remind you, MOVE. If you live near any military bases do as above. If you live near any power plants, stations, facilities, etc, do as above. If your near any major tourist attractions do as above. If you have money I suggest redoing your house with hardened concrete from the ground up to at least 6 feet. I suggest you spend some time on a range relearning or learning to shoot. You may want to buy a portable generator capable of powering your house. Not sure how safe it will be storing fuel for it but you may want some anyway. Make good friends with your neighbors and get to know everyone in your general area, know who belongs and who doesn't. Advice them to arm themselves. You should consider having at a minimum a months supply of food that doesn't depend on refrigeration. As well as a stock of clean water for drinking. Do NOT advertise you have extra food or water. I would suggest you keep your car full of gas all the time. When we abandon Iraq you can count on serious attacks to commence inside the US within 2 to 3 years or less.
