    The time clicks closer every second.

    2 Peter 3:10-13 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

    "This year's Doomsday Clock announcement revealed it is 90 seconds to midnight, making us closer to global catastrophe than ever before."

    Why do some think the (ineffective) Biden administration has brought humanity closer to annihilation?

    Eisenhower taught us that the run up to WWII demonstrates strength deters aggression, but weakness invites aggression. Thus the USA needs to maintain a hefty defense capability to deter nuclear aggression.

    How about using our stockpiles but not replenishing the stockpile?

    Do we have enough C-17's to airlift Stryker forces?

    Do we have enough Javelins?

    I might put aside a bottle of water, a flashlight with fresh batteries and test that old dusty whistle out for attracting attention.
    Ready for anything.

    When the "Doomsday" that I pointed to in the OP as getting closer second by second happens, you won't need a bottle of water, a flashlight, batteries, or a whistle. It will the instant end of the present heavens and earth and the start of the new heavens and earth wherein dwells righteousness.

    "Someone feckless is lacking in feck. And what, you may ask, is feck? In Scots—our source of fecklessfeck means "majority" or "effect." The term is ultimately an alteration of the Middle English effect. So something without feck is without effect, or ineffective. In the past, feckful (meaning "efficient, effective," "sturdy," or "powerful") made an occasional appearance. But in this case, the weak has outlived the strong: feckless is a commonly used English word, but feckful has fallen out of use."

    You might want to include the old regimental drill cane in that case, they whistle.
