Can you imagine a terrorist of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s caliber possessing a nuclear weapon?
Some say he’ll have one any day now. Check out this article at Homeland Security Today:
Is there any doubt he would turn the full force of his vengeance on America? This is the same man that held our citizens hostage in the 70’s after all.
What about North Korea? Do you believe that Kim Jong Il’s unpredictable son is out for world domination?
What other choice would these desperate and psychotic men have but to eliminate the only country that stands for everything they hate?
And isn’t it a matter of time before China started flexing its considerable muscle?
I don’t know that our ‘leaders’ would have the guts to strike these lunatics first to preserve our nation. And even if the United States wasn’t hit directly with nuclear weapons, a nuclear confrontation somewhere else in the world could easily cause massive fallout here. So I’ve prepared my family for the worst. There are a few things you can do to prepare for a nuclear winter that would result from nuclear war:
- Be prepared to stay. It’s possible that where you are when the bomb drops is the safest place to stay. With the proper shelter, food, and water you might be best served to just sit tight for a while and wait until the dust settles.
- If that’s the case you need to make sure you have enough food and water to survive for at least a month. You’ll also want communication devices that are not dependent on broadband communications (think radios) as they will likely be inoperable.
- Be prepared to go. Even if it’s safe directly after a nuclear attack, it likely won’t remain that way. Nuclear weapons create large storms of radiation that can travel the globe. Sooner or later they will affect you. That’s why it’s also important that you have reliable transportation, a source of fuel and a plan to get out when things get nasty.
My hope is that our military leaders have the guts to put an end to these threats and preserve the safety of our nation. Given their poor history (especially recently) of protecting our nation, I have prepared for the worst, just in case. You should too.
