That...was one of the most sobering videos I've ever watched here. Perhaps because it's a scenario I think many of us wouldn't even be terribly surprised. Whatever emotions...shock wouldn't be among them, I'm thinking.

Well..what I looked up in the first minute of the EAS alert indicated 25 minute flight time for an ICBM from the USSR to Mainland US targets. ....figure North Korea has more distance... 30-45 minutes? maybe?

I think I'd deliberately take a few minutes and get out what has to come..when it's still safe to do it. I'd take a few minutes to cry... and I'm serious. For the loss...for those about ti die...and for my own future with my family.

Then..well, if I'm at home, I won't be going far and no time to anyway... Just far enough out of the city itself to be in open fields and woods....and then just hope the idiots didn't go cheap on their targeting because there shouldn't be a dead on strike within 175 miles of here. (thats about the mileage to Whiteman AFB..and where Missouri's war would start)..

S/F and thanks for a wake up to take just a moment to face a possibility I hadn't in quite that way before.

If there is nuclear radioactive iodine fallout, taking potassium Iodide would be helpful but I have another possible solution. First take lots of Iodine to protect yourself, if there isn't potassium Iodide around than paint the gut area with iodine from the medicine cabinet. After that treatment for a while,maybe this may work. Certain foods cause iodine not to work and make the iodine not absorbable. These Goitrogens are the cruciferous vegetables, especially broccoli and Cauliflower. They interfere with iodine attaching to the thyroid. You might get kidney stones from them as a side effect. Eating calcium products with them (veggie dip) forms the kidney stones in the digestive tract and they don't get absorbed. Just an idea to kick around. Cabbage works but not as well, it only has one chemical instead of two that stop iodine absorption. Thyroid problems, quit eating these veggies raw and it may go away.

It sure is sobering.

I have thought about the situation probably hundreds of time. However, getting the sense of sight and sound involved in the thought process brings it to a whole other level.

I feel confident that if it were happening, the area I am in would be safe from a bomb, but not from fall out. I think I would feel a since of vindication from having expected something to happen for a long time. However, I would not be looking forward to what would be to come. The survival situation and prolonged death and disease to follow concerns me greatly.

That is some interesting information. Good to know if you are limited with resources or such an even were to occur after a major economic collapse where all people could buy or acquire is food.

It would have had more of a weighty impact if they had said Russia/China. NK seems to dinky to take seriously


Anyway, since I live in a densely populated metropolitan area on the East coast, all of which would be blanketed with MIRVs in any real nuclear attack, I wouldnt worry. I would relax, think of those whove gone before me, and rejoice knowing that Ill be with them again soon. I would consider it a shame humanity has destroyed itself once again, but honestly would not be surprised, and I wasnt expecting it to end differently this time around anyway, at this point in history.

I would relax, I would go outside onto the deck, and wait for the turning of the page, looking forward to what the next will bring.

Lots' just ran through my mind after watching (I've seen some similar you tube vids before).

1) Not prepared enough.
2) No basement, get the kids into the center of the house, or maybe one of the neighbors with a tornado shelter, especially if this is a limited attack. Several targets around me if it's Russia will get nailed, and if the blast doesn't get us the radiation will in a few days. But anyone else I think we get left alone.
3) Grab bottle water, first aid kit, canned or dried food, fire extinguishers, flashlightsfirearms and ammo.
4) Turn off and unplug all electronics to minimize EMP damage, except for one radio and/or tv to gather as much info
5) Start praying.

If It's Russia firing off everything it's not likely going to matter...might as well go outside and watch and hope to get vaporized...but where I live that's not nearly certain.

If it's N.Korea, (or to a lesser degree China), it's only likely the West Coast that's going to get hit. EMP might effect larger parts of the country if they go that route, as will fallout. Also the Vandenberg and Greeley Alaska Interceptor sites should be able to get their 24 or so interceptor rockets off. Figure at least half score hits. Figure some of the rockets break up and/or the warheads fail to detonate or fizzle. The N.Ks are new at this, afterall. China would have better luck, but I think that they only have about 25 missiles with true global reach. The rest could get to the West Coast and around the Pacific Region.

Couple of things to remember:
1) if you are getting the EAM, whatever you plan to do you have at most 20 minutes or so. Less if they are submarine launched missiles.
2) You maybe out of the blast or heat radius, but it the flash from a distance can still blind you, and possibly still burn you depending on yield of the weapon. DO NOT LOOK! Flash blindness can be temporary or if intense enough permanent.
3) In a limited attack unless you are at one of the actual targets or the fallout patterns you will likely survive. So get ready for whatever comes next.

You know, most of those probably under 35 or so have probably never seen, "the Day After" or "threads". 2 80's movies that look at global (us/ussr) nuclear war. A bit cheezy by today's standards....but sobering.

I agree about the part that we'd get no warning other than the many sunbursts on the horizon.
That is unless you were at ground zero of course.

More toward the Op, I'd grab my dogs and my wife and hope the best for the kids, then head to the shelter.
Once there I think I'd play some solitaire or checkers.

Gather the family, hold them tight, kiss them and tell my young children we failed as a species because humans are stupid animals.

I would look into their eyes as the missiles were falling and apologise to them for not being able to have a long life.

The last words I would say are “I can’t protect you from this, it won’t hurt and mommy and daddy love you more than anything in the universe”

We would be incinerated together, looking at each other’s love in our eyes and that would be ok for us, as long as we were together.

PS: If I had more time, of course I would try everything to get them to a safe place, even if it is just to prolong the inevitable for a short time.

I dont think it can happen. Plenty of times when ignorant humans have tried using nuclear weapons, the ET's have stepped in and prevented it in a variety of ways. They will not let us destroy our entire species because they understand our purpose here even if we do not.

If it did happen, I would have a mix of excitement and fear. Moving to the next reality would be exciting, but the fear of pain when the body dies would be there.

All that is fine and dandy. Before you do that start filling up every container, garbage can, your bathtub and glasses with water.

How will that help a nuke strike right above my head?

No, would rather spend the last moments holding my family together and saying goodbye.

You're statistically better off if the nuke goes off directly over head.

You're really screwed if it goes off 10 miles from you.

Google "popcorn effect"

Not sure.... I really should plan for this. Just a simple couple of sentences of a plan.... If the family is all home, I'd have my wife grab all the food, medicine, blankets, buckets, flashlights radios etc and the kids and get to our downstairs bathroom. has a shower and is the most remote inside room we have. There's a good chance we'd survive the blast and the fallout depending where it went off and of course maybe we wouldn't, but I'll fight to live anyway. I'd try to stuff mattresses, paper, blankets in there to help insulate us from the radiation as best we could..( I saw a show where being in an inside closet with boxes of printer paper helped shield some radiation) then I'd grab my army manual and SAS Survival guide, knifes, camping gear etc and we'd camp out in there. Minimize the exposure to ourselves our dogs and our food as much as possible. When I thought it was safe outside... day or two I'd go for food, bottled water, medicine weapons...etc. and try to loot the Albertsons down the street. LOL I'd fight to live till my last breathe. That's all I can promise you. People in Hiroshima, that should have died instantly or within days...lived full lives. Some of it's just dumb luck, but I ain't givin up nothing without a fight.

You need to wait longer than a day or two.

Plan on being down there for at least 24 days. That would leave radioactive cesium at around 12%.

Seriously, in two days time, you might as well stand outside and watch the show.

LOL if you got the info from ATS then you can be sure its BS.

This thread? WTF? Nothing that folks who lived during the cuban missile crisis didnt go through and that threat was REAL. The video? Are you freaking kidding me? Was this a 5th grade school project?
30 minutes for the missiles to get here? Doubt there would be much warning-nothing you can do.

North Korea launched?

I wouldn't do anything out of the ordinary. I am more afraid of spiders than I am of north Korean nuclear missiles.

Well that's the thing, I don't have that much food and water and nor can I get all of it in my bathroom if needed that quickly. They say 80 percent of the fallout is down after 48-72 hours. That we could do and then move to an unnaffected area. I'm right at the food of some mountians only hour a way or less. It all depends on if I'm downwind or not, I think? tough either way. Would I be safe in the rest of my house after 48-72 hours?
