Hello, my friend and welcome back! Should you be prepping for a nuclear attack? This question has caused me to lose sleep more than one night and is the subject of today’s post, so grab a cup of coffee my friend and have a seat while we visit.
Something I hear a lot of when I speak to other Preppers, is the debate on whether or not you should prep for a nuclear attack? There are many schools of thought on this; there is one group who will tell you that there is no point in prepping for something you have no chance of surviving, while yet others that feel it just won’t ever happen. While both groups make some good points, they are both dead WRONG.
On the point of view that it will never happen, they are overlooking a few facts. One is that there are smaller countries out there who would have no issue setting off a tactical nuclear device in the middle of some large US City like Washington DC or New Orleans. There are also groups like ISIS who would love to drop one on the US after launching it from a container or cargo ship. The thing is it can happen and the chances of it are increasing every day.
Now let’s look at the group that insist that there is no way to survive. These people are operating under the myths that many of us grew up with. They believe that even if you are not killed by the initial explosion, you will still die from radiation poisoning and the destroyed landscape. In their view, the land will be ruined for hundreds of years to come so if you didn’t die of Radiation poisoning, you would eventually starve to death. This belief like the other one is flat-out wrong, and is perpetuated out of ignorance.
With the internet at our fingertips, we only need to do a little research to see that much of what we were told when we were young is wrong. It was driven into our heads that once a nuclear bomb went off, the land would be left desolate and unusable for anything for hundreds of years to come. In 1947, we dropped an atomic bomb on Nagasaki Japan. That was just 70 years ago, and you should see it today. The city has been rebuilt and is a huge part of Japanese society. Beautiful plants and grass growing everywhere you look. This land is anything but barren. The truth is that if you can survive for a couple of months indoors and below ground, then there is a good chance you will survive all together. As for not being able to grow anything due to the nuclear contamination of the ground, that too is false. 2 – 3 months after an attack, you can remove the top 28 inches from any farm land and have clean soil for growing your plants.
The bottom line is that yes there is a chance of a nuclear attack, and yes, you can survive it if you prepare ahead of time. The biggest thing is to have a survivable underground shelter where you can survive with food water and other items you would need until the danger has passed. I’m going to be reviewing a set of dvds in the near future, that supposedly tell you everything you need to survive a nuclear explosion and how to do it. I will be letting you know what I think of the dvd set.
If you haven’t started prepping to survive then it’s time you started. Learn as much as you can and start now. Here is a link to an article on Nagasaki, then and now that might make you stop and rethink what you thought you knew.
Well that’s it for today my friend and I hope you have found this post useful. Until next time, stay safe, stay strong and stay prepared. God Bless America!
