U.S. Rethinks Strategy for the Unthinkable


www.nytimes.com...]

Suppose the unthinkable happened, and terrorists struck New York or another big city with an atom bomb. What should people there do? The government has a surprising new message: Do not flee. Get inside any stable building and don’t come out till officials say it’s safe.

Don't really even know what to make of this article.

Seems the news outlets want to keep playing the doom and gloom, fear-mongering scenarios out.

Do they perhaps know something that is on the agenda? Another false flag, maybe? lol

Ironically enough, since our airforce 'lost' nukes in transport not long ago, this may well be something worthy of discussion from a safety-planning standpoint.

What WOULD be the best recourse of action if a nuke is detonated in ones vicinity?

Hope you have time to tell your loved ones you love them and then die, in peace. If you don't get killed by the impact and subsequent shock waves, find the nearest and quickest way to kill yourself and then die, in peace.

There is no best recourse.

Regards,

The was another thread here, 2 in fact

1 of a man running into a church screaming that NYC was going to be nuked.

The other just yesterday, stating the same, but in False Flag terms over the holiday period.

And now this.

Things afoot????

Who knows but it sure is weird!!!!

Interesting article. Is it telling?

"Specialists outside of Washington are divided on the initiative. One group says the administration is overreacting to an atomic threat that is all but nonexistent.

Peter Bergen, a fellow at the New America Foundation and New York University’s Center on Law and Security, recently argued that the odds of any terrorist group obtaining a nuclear weapon are “near zero for the foreseeable future.” " from article

Seems ridiculous that at this stage in our world there would be any doubts that nukes could be in the wrong hands right now.

I feel like the fact that this is in the NYTimes right now, should be concerning.

People should have a plan for this worst case scenario, and I agree that people should stay in place, at first. The first 3 days of fallout are the worst, don't want to be out in that. Have a plan.

Assuming that one hasn't already been converted into super-hot plasma, I doubt hiding in buildings is going to be any better than ye olde "Duck and Cover".

Although perhaps getting into the underground sewers and tunnels may help a bit.

Typical fear based economy in regards to media. People love to think of the unthinkable (sort of makes the whole word redundant considering its more of a "thought fixation").

Its not a bad thing actually to consider what to do in times of danger and disaster...its good to be prepared in any circumstance, however, the blatant ratings troll done by msm is a bit tiring

Why don't they do a segment of "what would you do if you win the lotto". Might be nice to dwell on something fun for a change.

In regards to the whole dealing with a nuke...well, it really depends on how close in the blast zone you are. If your pretty far out from ground zero...sure, hole up and wait. reinforce windows and try to take measures to reduce the rads coming through the structure (perhaps wallpapering with tin foil is not out of the question)

Close to the blast though...well, if your sitting in your apartment, your sitting there soaking up radiation just as much as if you are wandering the streets...so, walk away from the blast zone..chances are your dead anyhow...but at least you can die with hope of getting out of the dead zone verses your last thoughts being that of giving up and death.

Of course...the best plan is to simply remain in the vault and wait for the Overseer to give the all clear

I know very little about fallout, but if the blast doesn't kill you, but you are still in a fallout zone, I think you are better off to stay indoors(preferably in a basement, althouth here in California not too many of these) and quickly build up a thick barrier to huddle in for at least 3 days. The more solids covering you the better, such as doors, books, shelves, heavy thinck items. But certainly not wandering out in the open, that is if you want to try and live through the nightmare. After these few days you can try and get somewhere else, still a huge danger, but the radiation does lose some of it's streth the more days go by.

Of course, any nuclear threat won't come in the form of something smuggled in. It will come from what is already within the country -- like those missing nukes that no body seems to care about.

They're still here, somewhere. If taking down some skyscrapers didn't accomplish what they hoped for what makes you think "they" won't go for a whole city, or two next time? Or maybe really soon??

A lot of politicians are currently upset at having to work through the holidays. Of course they blame it on the
"other party" ! But they're wanting to get away . . real badly. Makes you wonder.

( And of course, they don't want to be disrespectful to "Christmas". )

Oddly enough there was a discovery network program called "worst case scenario" that dwelt on such events. There could be a false-flag event on such a magnitude but regardless I think people should know what to do when the unthinkable happens. You don't wait till the last minute to tell people!

Best advice is buy an NBC suit if you can afford it and get inside a structurally safe building. Have enough food, water and other necessary supplies till it is safe to enter back outside....it could be days or even weeks. I don't think personal terrorists will do anything like that against the western world. Most likely it would be NWO sponsored so they can strip more rights from us again; problem, reaction, solution!
