Hi Friends,

Its seems that a Nuclear War can be the result of Either Nkorea vs USA or Iran vs Israel.

I would like you to watch this movie very carefully..this was done by the British in 1985..its a very interesting movie..a must see...than afterwards I would like to discuss with you your feelings after watching the movie and maybe start to discuss seriously what can be done for such thing never to happen to our loved ones...remember life aint no Fallout 3..there is no save game or start a new game..its horrible.

Really good choice... Threads is the BEST movie on nuclear war ever, by best I mean realistic. And I've seen IMO most of them...

But today would be different.. meaning that we have EMP protection, underground cities, anti-missile shield, there's less nukes and the yields are lower.

K I'll play, but I don't think there's going to be a nuke war fought here in the states. The gov might pull another 911 on us and nuke a few hundred thousand to get a few more people to enlist, but I don't see an actual war here.

Star and Flag - Spread the love!

when i was a kid i had a very vivid dream about nuclear war, ever since I was completely obsessed and terrified with nukes. There was a britich cartoon called "when the wind blows" movie length about nuclear war. I have never watched it again as it scared me so much at the time.

I had started to think the chances of it happening had gone away until recently.the consequences are just too scary to think about

I'm in on this, I think nuclear war should be a point of discussion in these times. With North Korea playing the nuclear card, Iran threatening to knock Israel off the map and with a known nuclear weapons programs, Israel threatening to reciprocate with Iran if attacked and with over 200 warheads at their disposal, and lets not forget the possibility of Pakistani nukes falling into the wrong hands.

I mean these current events sound like a Tom Clancy novel but there real. This is truly a scary time indeed. We need to really mind ourselves when dealing with loons and nuclear capabilities. Well I'll contribute and lets wait and see where this thread goes.

Congratulations on your decision of having a child. May your child grow up in a world better than this one. This is truly an upside down world and I sometimes wonder who is the good guys and who are the bad guys. At least in the Cold War we knew the Soviets meant us harm and in WWII we knew Adolf Hitler and Imperial Japan were bad.

However, today, we have a difficult time discerning who is on the side of good and who is on the side darkness. All we can hope for is that the world leaders know the severity of a nuclear exchange and use that method as sparingly as possible much like Kennedy and Kruschev in 60's. We've been done this down this road during the Cold War and we made it through without anyone being incinerated so lets hope these current events shake out that way.

I agree that an active discussion should be "stickied". Discussion is important for the mind, however it is useless against 5-15psi overpressure.

As for what people can do? Prepare their own first, plan to be VALUABLE in the aftermath.

Otherwise, assume your hometown is a target and prepare accordingly. Nobody truly knows who will pull the trigger, where it will happen and who will be really responsible. There won't be time to formulate theories, just carnage in a random place in a random time. Assume your own home town is the target and prepare accordingly. That is your last best chance.

Check out NTI.ORG for the various lobby/activist information and some valuable links on what you can do, how to help get the message out. This is a growing movement indeed. I've been a member for years and the initiative updates are light years ahead of the media reaction to current events. It's a preemptive start but nothing near a complete education nor is it a catch all solution. It is a global initiative with deep pockets and deep ties with global governments.

Spread the membership to all that you can, put it on your resume, your calling card, business card, bumper, quotes and tell the missionaries at the door about it. Become an advocate and allow others to find comfort in your acknowledgment and understanding of a very possible reality. More possible in our lifetimes than a conventional world war.

It is very much time to get serious, though I do LOVE fallout 3. At this rate, bottle caps could indeed be worth more than money and you could find paper money in random garbage cans someday.

I remember this film very well. it scared the S**t out of me. i used to live on the RAF finningley air base that is mentioned in the movie my dad was stationed there around 1978 - 1982 back then it was a Vulcan bomber training base. RAF finningley is now a commercial airport called Robin hood Airport
.
I still live in near sheffield and the film is always in the back of my mind when situations with other countries go sour.

Yep When the Wind blows is great too. Threads, When the wind blows and DrStrangelove are my favorites.

It's a shame Hollywood didn't make anything good on nuclear war since the end of the cold war... now it's all about 2012, global warming, aliens or terrorism... it's boring.

Russia Holds Out Possibility of Significant Nuclear Reductions
Monday, June 22, 2009

Your idealism is commendable but it is not realistic. I can assure you if every American signed a petition and sent it to congress to completely disarm our nuclear deterrent they would bat it down in an instance. If we were to do that we would be at the mercy of the rest of the world and their nuclear arsenals.

When we tested the Trinity bomb in the New Mexican desert in 1945 the world would never be the same again and Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer head of the development knew that. Oppenheimer quoting the Hindu text, Bhagavad Gita: "If the radiance of a thousand suns were to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the mighty one." and "Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds." We have to learn to live with them, because unfortunately, they are now a necessary evil.

Nope it didnt change my mood just brought back some great childhood memories
.

I think we have a good chance of holding out through a nuclear war these days.
The worst part about it for most would be the aftermath and looters, rioters and criminals.

Im just glad i live in a small town in yorkshire, ill be running to the hills,

God, the memories this movie brings back from the feeling as a 10 year old in the 80's. I never saw "Threads". I'm halfway through, and it's chilling.

THIS is the movie I remember scaring the crap out of me as a kid, and when it dawned on me that the S could HTF. "The Day After" with John Lithgow. .

There is no way of stoppinig it.
People have been trying to do that for years.
Even if Russia , USA, UK, China etc etc did get rid of all there nukes there would still be some nutcase developing them secretly.

I think now that we have them and the knowledge to make them we will never be rid of them, i know it sounds sad but nukes are here to stay.

I believe you have a very good reason for your cause. It's also not surprising that there are many people like you. It's what everyone wants, a nice family, nice life...

Unfortunately, it doesn't always come free, everybody has to make a sacrifice! If peace is worth fighting for, then you should fight for it
