What would you do in a theoretical invation of the US?

Theoretical situation just for discussion:
Consideration: We live in a very concentrated area for military bases, nuclear energy, fuel and ports. I would think that South Carolina as well as the South East a major target to be controlled and fast. No EMP, nukes, biologic or chemicals weapons. Any initial commitment of assets would be air.
The enemy: China with support from Iran and Russia. Throwing Russia in there. Considering that Putin takes power and moves back to USSR philosophy.

The attack: You're at home around 8:00 pm watching TV with the family. All of the sudden your TV goes out. You have power but no signal. After fiddling for a few minutes you try to call it in with your land line but can't. No dial tone. Cell phone? It's dead as well. Kinda weird. You go outside to talk to the neighbor to see if the same is happening to them. On the trip over you notice that the power is start to flick off and on...then stay off after a few seconds. You start hearing aircraft flying over going mostly towards the coast.

About an hour later, living in Columbia (or Charleston, Beaufort, Augusta or Sumter), you start hearing explosions in the distance and over flights of aircraft with no navigation lights. With occasional streaks of light going across the sky. This will continue for hours.

In the mean time, the local police force is driving through the street announcing for people to stay in there house. They are also staging at major intersections with full gear.

By morning, the enemy has landed up and down the coast. Mainly in places that have ports, manufacturing and energy resources. Like Charleston, Savannah, Wilmington, Jacksonville, Mobile, Pensacola... Inland landings are spuratic and you have no idea where. But, they are at major and county airports.

The only information you are getting is over the PA system that the LEO's are using. But this start to lesson by lunch time because of electronic warfare. By afternoon their are people both armed and not wondering through the neighborhood. The LEO's start to stop people from traveling.

Please start by saying what type of environment is around you: out in the country, neighborhood... Are you within 60 miles of a base?
What would you do?

This is for fun and good conversation.

My kids all know if the SHTF to get here quickly(Dad has the firepower ;) ) which I would think since they're not far from us would be easy(hopefully), Downfall my oldest daughter is in the navy reserves so she probably would be dropping off the grandson and leaving. As for a direct threat I'm not near any bases but not far from Greenville/Spartanburg airport however being in the sticks has it's advantages along with being in the foothills and not far from the mountains. Most likely we would pretty much set up and fight like hell when the time comes.

"Let me start by saying a ground attack of the east Coast would NOT be a surprise attack.My nightmare is a nuclear attack. That said, I will play along"

Charleston Naval Base is across the street from me. Charleston Air Force Base is a 15 minute drive. I figure we are VERY close to the bulls eye of any attack. If I were home and Chinese or Russian Jets were attacking? My son in law would come over with his weaponry and food. At my place, we load our vehicle with more guns, ammo, food, medicine,gas cans, Mom and the dog.

If I saw a Russian jet or Helicopter, yeah, I'd shoot. Figure the neighbors need to see someone offering resistance. My primary goal at the moment we are attacked is to get my family away from these bases. Like Avtomat-Acolyte, I plan to get to some high ground away from the coast, hopefully near the Blue Ridge Mountains.

so someone got my point.

we the people need a system.

in MY opinion the police and guard would be nowhere in sight. everyone has a family. do you leave your 30 yr old wife and 3 kids to battle russian helicopters? no. why would police be at intersections? they would be trying to protect their familys.

if we the people dont get a plan then we are at the mercy of someones millitary.

the first ammendment gives us the right to get a plan, right? but it is illegal, federal offense, to plan a bank robbery.
so why dont we have a plan? four old dudes were set up by the feds for trying to make a plan. yeah we can get you some bombs and silencers. now they face charges. under NDAA this post is probably illegal. anyone here got an ammo can with bullets in it? you can be accused as a "suspected terr, one of those guys".

looks like we die in small groups without a plan.
 
The liklihood of "we, the people" needing to battle Russian helicopters is substantially lower than that of us battling police at intersections.

Automobiles aren't constructed to withstand a meteor strike and you likely don't have insurance to cover the event, either. They are, however, constructed to protect passengers in a collision, something you probably have insurance to cover. Why do you think that is? Probably for the same reason you won't find many people with Red-Dawn-esque guerrilla mustering contingency plans drilled into the subconscious of local Neighborhood Watch members: it is unlikely to happen & even if it does happen then almost no amount of preparation will help.

Hence for fun and discussion :geek:

and an instrument written 200 years ago is unlikely to do any good 200 years later?

ie., 2nd ammendment

thats our insurance. are we covered or uninsured?

I would think most of us would fare better than the dumbed down masses.

Thanks God I live on a dead end road in semi wilderness.
The neighbors and I already have contingency plans in place.
And guess what,,,,,No one lives forever.
The book one second after is a good read.
