There is another thing that I want to offer you AGAIN for consideration.
If the big doom comes for whatever reason (ww3 or mega cataclysm) and it is well know it is inevitable, then the big countries will try to save at
least part of their populations. There is one country that has those abilities and that cannot afford losing more population than it already lost -
Russia. With 142 mln from 292 mln back in USSR time, Russian population shrinks as we speak. ANy big war, let alone celestial mega event will wipe out
the Russians foerever, should they do not hide underground on time. Taking into account the vast territory and cities with poor transportation links
according to Western standards, that might not be that easy as it sounds. Unless we suppose secret underground tunnels connecting all those cities
spread in 11 time zones. Even if it is so, you cannot literally put undeground 142 mln or 100 mln or 50 mln people overnight. Those are women,
children, people who have their needs and above all who are not alarmed yet they have to hide. So it is logical to expect such alarm to be issued
shortly before any mega doom event. Enough for a major evacuation of the Russian ctiies and assurance Russian nation will continue in post doom
The Chinese and the Indians may not care for their billions. It is their concern. We see how China is ready to sacrifice everything only to be able to
nuke USA. As if off-worldly power dictates what they should do, and not their own instinct of survival of human species.
The Americans may think FEMA is bad and does not have as a goal to save their lives in crisis. The Russians do not think in such terms. They do not
think the country's secret programs have sinister goals, they think the country defends them and will defend them. They had enough suffering and
sacrifice in the great patriotic war (ww2) to assure national civilization survival. They wil not let history repeat itself. They will not depend on a
mercy of a dictator equal to Hitler or worse. Many scholars think Stalin was the worse. But let remember that Hitler wanted to annihilate Moscow and
to made a lake instead. That he preached the Slavic nations to be inferior to the Aryans and therefore born to be slaves. SHould Hitler have won the
world would never be the same. You would have the vast land of Russia and its resources at disposal of Hitler's war machine and ideology. Should Saudi
and Chinese win now, the world will become a Caliphate and nobody knows what the Chinese would do either.
Better find yourselves allies of that great nation and not her enemies. Especially for smaller countries whose only hope of survival will be a kind
invitation from one of the big nations who have capabilities to save from doom. Because the nuclear winter will spare no one, not even Brazilians and
South Africans who may think they stay outside the main nuclear exchange. They will not escape it and will die in the following months. The nuclear
winter is guaranteed if China, India, Pakistan, and USA are involved in mega conflict, even without Russian participation. Of course Russian nukes
alone are enough of that, making more than the half of all warheads in the world. In other words, if Russia wants to play the bad guy, it just hides
underground and shoots. It is craziness and I don't think it will happen. But some soviet strategists envisioned exactly that as a last resort. with
big enough explosions to destroy every life on planet even if they occur on Russian territory. I hope those people are long gone with their plans. But
the perspective exists. And may be there are other countries capable of doing that either.
Let alone a mega space disaster.
Population! It is the first concern in a nuclear war not the last concern. It made MAD work for decades. Otherwise Khrushchev would have fired those
missiles in Cuba and we would not discuss it now, yes? He thought of the generations to come, so did Kennedy. Unlike the movies that represent the
Russians as cruel and insane communists they cared for 292 mln peole AND for the rest of the world. That's why they didn't fire despite they had twice
or more the nukes US had.
Today's leaders some of them behave as if they are the last generation ever on this doomed planet. See the behavior of Middle eastern leaders who
expect Mahdi or other messiah every next day and who actually think the more martyrs the better. They are not afraid of Israel's nukes. What if one
day one "space ship" or man made saucer indeed brings their messiah, true or false doesn't matter at all. They will go crazy and will start
slaughtering. Let alone nukes.
Don't the West see that danger, or is preparing for a glorious martyrdom? As some signs from the Vatican show such an attitude? 1000 martyrs beatified
from past wars with Ottomans and Spanish civil war. Moves that show not so much concern of the living but much honor of the dead. Good!!! I do not say
this is a bad thing. BUT there is one big IF. So should we also be martyred in someone's controversial perspective of this world? If the West is
posing for a great martyrdom, or some of it, as some western prophets have allegedly "predicted", then the East and especially Russia must prepare to
survive and to continue the humankind further on. No matter what.
