Of course "I'm not ready for nuclear war". Who could possibly ever be ready for a nuclear exchange?
During the 80's, Reagan's terms in office, there was a very real "window of vulnerability" that existed between the United States and the Soviet
Union. Many, including myself, really believed that a nuclear war was possible and even inevitable. During that period, I was, what many would
consider, a survivalist. I had stockpiled food, water, medications, supplies and arms. However, even at that time, I did not consider myself
"ready". Again, I ask, who could ever possibly be ready for a nuclear war? The answer is simple....no one!!
Consider the devastation that the Tsunami wrought. Consider the destruction that was left in the wake of the Hurricane Katrina. We were not ready
for either. Of course, we could not predict the Tsunami but, when compared to a nuclear exchange, we probably wouldn't able to predict such an event
when or if it should occur. But let's say that we knew a nuclear war was imminent....just like we knew that Katrina was heading for New Orleans.
Could we ever possibly be ready for every contingency?
No. I'm not ready for a nuclear war. And I will never be ready for such a horrific event. All we can hope to do is prevent a nuclear exchange
before it ever happens and to be as self reliant as we possibly can. Live each day as if it were our last because it just might be.
