The problem is that people don't know the truth and if you try to tell them the truth, they get angry. Denial is the first defense mechanism. It goes to the "shoot the messenger syndrome." People THAT KNOW THE TRUTH can't tell you the truth because they know your response will be to attack the messenger.

Contamination and the spread of fallout is directly related to factors such as wind speed and direction, height of explosion and energy released.
If you go the websight linked above, and remembering that we are discussing 'suitcase' nukes, set the slider to 20kt and select a city from the list provided. Then click on a location in that city and the colored circles will move to that location accordingly.
Now they have these suitcase nukes and the know-how to use them. They have America nuclear blackmailed, as well as other nations. Thats the story behind all the madness you people like to wonder about. 40 suitcases can do alot of damage. They can get you anything you want.
Clearly we can see that if there is a nuke event in America, there will be massive additional casualties from lack of FEMA support. America needs civil defense, organized on a grass-roots level.
