I read this article today and I know all too well the real fears of growing up in the Cold War
I well remember the playground talk of how nuclear weapons would kill the planet. I was at first in denial about that. Weapons that could kill the
world? Surely not, and then I learnt all too well yes Adults have made a monster and I grew up for years having nightmares. I remember Threads and The
Day After and even now after the Cold War is over, these hard hitting films are as relevent today as they were then.
Is the BBC writing this article to prepare us for the fact that this really is going to happen quite soon after all? I hope NOT but still given all
that is happening, it is easy to see why they have done. We the civilian population of Planet Earth will be the ones to witness the madness of
politicians, hard line military rulers and just plain evil regimes. Personally I'd send them packing on a rocket to Mars and let them slug it out
amongst themselves whilst the rest of us get on with simply living!
I just pray this never comes to pass.
