So do you mean that the American System of communication is not good?
Dear Sandy

There is not "enough" American public information on aspects of RDD and 
public attitude in case of an event?
I know the psychological trauma, because I have to manage  the worst 
radiological emergency response up to now in Goiania, and in this matter, 
communication and trauma, I do believe, even after 20 years of Goiania, 
offer many lessons that were not fully learned.
However one of the lessons was that the people of Goiania was not previously 
prepared for an radiological event like Goiania.
I can discuss scenarios to prove that are situations were a RDD can be worst 
than the usual scenarios that mention
"blast itself would probably kill more than the radiation"
