The first thing that will happen is that everything electronic will stop working...........then a bright flash...........then the air gets suched into ground zero.....then you get the big blast of heat and air. This will all take only seconds but will seem like and eternity.

Ok, but this is also to late.
Do you think we could get some warning to have enough time to get safe? Our governments will know, what about plain people? Sirens or/and news in media? Or maybe they won't inform us at all, cos that could create panic....

so I was wondering do we have any chance to figure it out by ourselves - early enough to find a shelter???

First hand experience? hehe

From what i've heard/read, the US/UK would be able to take down any nuke heading for its soil... Unless, maybe, if it was launched from its own country.

Anyone know how the UK and US are protected from a nuclear attack?

HAARP is the State of the Art defense weapon. The question is who controls it??

My back up plan?

Duck and cover

Actually, like so many other posters here, I dont want to live through a nuclear war. I dont want my family too either.

Ill tell you something else: Pray you arent the only person on your block that was "smart" enough to store food and water. You and your family would be ripped appart. I dont care how big your gun is and how many bullets you have, you wouldnt stand a chance in the long run.

What a pathetic, some of posters here!
I will fight to survive until my last breath

I don't bother planning for fantasies.
If you wanna waste your time however, be my guest

Anywhere in the southern hemisphere would be fairly safe I reckon. I'll just stay here. No real targets of significance. Primarily anyway.

I recentley read an articl in American Scientist that stated and showed that the missle defence system is pretty much ineffective. They stated that the only missles the system would have a chance of hitting were those from off shore boats. Short range missles.

I don't consider it "pathetic" not to want to survive a nuclear blast. In my view, I'm over 50, having lived a great life, and would not want to live in the chaotic, dog eats dog, post-nuclear world. I live in the center of a major city and am 20 miles from a huge nuclear power plant. I figure, that if the unthinkable happened, I wouldn't need a backup plan, because I'd be gone in seconds.
Now, should I survive, my backup plan would be to stay right here and do my best to help the survivors. I'm no martyr, but I guess I'd like to build up some good karma while coping with the madness, sickness, and inevitable death.
The idea of fighting to the death is all very romantic and, also, tough-minded, but, for some of us, it's not in our nature. It's not the evidence of weakness and "giving in",but of strength and a rational decision that life, in some circumstances, is not what it's cracked up to be.
Whatever happens, I guess I'll go with the flow and do what I can.
But, I will not arm myself to the teeth and shoot my way out of destruction. That's just not me. For some of you, it may be the answer. No judgements are being made here. It's a private decision for everyone.
I just hope this never happens.

I'm with ya joey
perhaps because I am over 50 and have done and seen enough fighting. And all for naught. In the end I have what I started with. Myself.
I also was born and raised in a large city, Boston. As the fickle finger of fate would have it though, I now am a recluse living in Alaska. Often I have thought of returning to a large culture filled urban area with museums, theater, diverse ethnicity and a variety of minds and people. You know, "concrete under your feet"
I seem to have all that here at my finger tips. And I am beginning to enjoy being a hermit. And having only one road to walk down. Good luck.

My plan would be as it is now. Watch, pray, give thanks, and let the holy spirit lead me..

My Plans Would Probally be exactly the same for when my family prepared for if the year 2000 went tits-up... I am right in the middle of Great Britain (IoM) so it would be alot of radioactive fallout, but we wouldnt get hit, unless some nuclear missle missed or something.

The plans however, were to completely baricade the perimiter and turn the house into a more fortified structure... and live of everything we stocked up... for the food side of things we stocked up alot of food (mostly tinned) in one of our garages, this would have lasted fine if it had gone wrong in 2000, because we still have some of the food left in the garage!!
For when that runs out, we've got fishing nets and kyaks to go fishing, we grow our own vegatables and can always go hunting too..
For the water side of things, we got a NATO Standard water filter tap installed, which will purify anything toxic out of the water.
As for cooking and heating, we have plenty of Petrol, Oil, Gas and Coal... nevermind wood!! And we have a Stanley cooker, which will burn any rubbish, coal and wood, and we also have a gas fired oven and hotplate.

For home protection, there is a collection of guns and ammunition downstairs.. along with a varity of other weapons, but I dont suppose there would be too much uprising, as I live in a small community, but then again, when food and water is scarce... you'll do and go where ever and whatever to get it.

There are tablets that you can take to stop the radioactivity effecting you, there are certain glands that fill up with chemicals, and if they arnt full then the radioactivity fills up the rest and you become infected, there are tablets to fill up these glands to prevent this... its not going to stop 100% of all radioactivity, but its better than nothing!!

If I ever needed to buy anything we had lots of different currencies (including hard currencies eg - gold and silver) to use to bargin for things we needed.

Now all I have to do is hope that the IoM doesnt get hit by a missle and I should survive!!

Sounds like im pretty sorted... does it not?

Sounds good
What about a "Road Warrior" scenario? Are you prepared for large roving bands of desperadoes. An escape tunnel from your compound. Should the need arise.

Some people think about a war in larger scale. I'm talking about the worst! The Armagedon! The big flood cover Earth's surface like Noah's time. Nuclear war ignite the domino effect of the fragile ecology system.

You never know ... Oops, if I know it in advance, I wouldn't do it. Too late, mate, you are done!

How would you find an up to date targets lists? And can anyone tell me if we could download some type of tracking software, satelite maybe? In real time?

posted on Nov, 27 2004 @ 05:07 PM
No escape for anyone I am afraid if it gets really serious.

You might live a few years, but cancer and poor health will make you wish you had died in the blast. Mutations and genetic deformities will cause big problems for your future kids.

Even depleted uranium now littering the middle east has doomed them in the long term, even without the actual the nukes.

The dinosaurs were wiped out 65 million years ago. Now it is our turn.

In 7 months I'll be done building my new basement. It has 2foot thick lead walls and will hold 10 years of storage. I just hope I do't need it before then.

And just what are you going to do locked in your quiet dark basement for the next ten years ?

I respectfully suggest you will go stark raving insane long before you run out of provisions.

I plan on starting a community in the mountains of Pennsylvania with my friends, family, and close friends. We will live off the land through hunting and fishing and growing crops. And we will survive and live on after in order to create the new society of freedom & the pursuit of happieness

I live about 30 miles from NYC ... so when the first one goes off I will have very little time to get to my destination. Hopefully there will be time.

God i hope i survive this.

I don't think that a nuclear war will be as bad as you all make it sound...i know that the school system really did a number on you guys that grew up during the cold war...but a small nuke blast really isn't that bad.
And there will be survivors very close to ground zero...maybe like 5 miles out there will be survivors. Now if a mega nuke went off different story...but one of those will never be would mean the death of us all.

I think Nuke attacks are coming and the "terrorists" will probably use The Final Phase plan to carry them out. 7 cities destroyed in 1 day...and then a new tape saying that if we don't leave muslims alone there will be another nuke attack. That would cripple america for a long time. Threatening to use them again if we didn't leave them alone would end the war...if it didn't then america will become a police state and the middle east made into a parking lot.
