Most people here know about the NWC stuff on Y2k but here is a good link on things to keep an eye before y2k. I dont agree with all of it but its definitly something worth viewing.

I like :
* - Drop-off in terrorist attacks
If we see a significant quieting of terrorists through the remainder of the year they are likely saving their "toys" for 1/1/2000.

But their "toys" also are non-compliant.

You may be in error. An alarm clock, some batteries, and some plastique are fully compliant...

Maybe we need to look at it as a checklist. i saw a lot of things that were check-off-able in the list. This is NOT happy making.

Interesting checklist. I don't understand the intent of some of the items. As Chuck noted, many can be checked-off right now. Sales of firearms and ammo are hot. Trying to get a replacement rifle barrel for one of mine (mil. type) and manufacturer claims no delivery until after January 2000! Oh well...hope I never need to use it.

VERY interesting list. Many of these items I had hoped to keep an eye on myself.
A shame the NWC can't keep a running watch on an open site..... [G]

If there's already so much stockpiling of guns 'n' ammo in the US then I'm glad I live somewhere I can be at least be confident that any ravaging hordes won't be armed to the teeth. Good luck fellas, dig in deep, and don't let that goddam fed'ral guv'ment ship you off to no concentration camps, d'ya hear?
