"At the very best the [U.S.] government allowed this to happen," said political scientist Joel Skousen about the 9-11 attacks. No verifiable evidence has been produced that shows that Arabs were in charge of the strike, he said. Further, he suggested that the last few presidents have been "script readers" who take their orders from a controlling set of individuals above them.
"By the end of the decade we could see a major backlash," against the US said Skousen who believes the country's greatest enemies are not rogue nations or terrorists but China and Russia. Because these countries are continuing to increase their arsenals he believes they "plan to take on the West someday," with a first strike nuclear assault. Interestingly, he posited that after such an attack China would "stab Russia in the back," in a bid for even more power.
An advocate for "strategic relocation," Skousen said the safest course of action is to move out of urban areas to escape social unrest in the event of a natural disaster or attack. Recognizing that this is not an option for many, he recommended building a "safe room" in one's home that offers concealment and protection. This can be done in a do-it-yourself manner fairly inexpensively he said, using such materials as "gravel wall construction" which can offer a sturdiness similar to concrete.
