Thanks to deliver your message to RADSAFE. It makes clear that a few people
in the USA (though I categorilly deny that your opinion is representative
for the USA!!!!!) have still not recognized that the Cold War is over. 

Most people are happy that this constant threat of nuclear extinction has
been eliminated - except those who make a living of this. 

To keep this message short: I have been on several committees on the
prevention of nuclear harm in Austria, international committees like IAEA,
WHO and therefore I dare say, that banning nukes would be the most positive
input in history.   

On whose payroll you are or who pays you for this comment?

Betreff: [ RadSafe ] "Countdown to Zero" disarmament movie

It was predictable that the new "Countdown to Zero" disarmament movie 
would omit any life-saving strategies from their agenda of banning 
nukes, like advocating public Civil Defense, to try and better 
survive nukes in the meantime.

The disarmament movement has for over 60 years espoused that if nukes 
are unleashed; all will die or it will be so bad you'll wish you had. 
They've wanted all to think that the only way to ever survive nukes 
is to ban them. They've largely succeeded, as most now think it 
futile, bordering on lunacy, to ever try and learn how to prep for 
surviving a nuclear explosion.

Ironically, these disarmament activists have made millions of us even 
more vulnerable to perishing from nukes in the future.

For instance, most now ridicule "duck & cover", but for the majority, 
not right at 'ground zero' and already gone, the blast wave will be 
delayed in arriving after the flash, like lightening & thunder, 
anywhere from a fraction of a second up to 20 seconds, or more.

Today, without "duck & cover" training, everyone at work, home, and 
your children at school, will impulsively rush to the nearest windows 
to see what that 'bright flash' was, just-in-time to be shredded by 
the glass imploding inward from that delayed blast wave. They'd never 
been taught that even in the open, just laying flat, reduces by 
eight-fold the chances of being hit by debris from that brief, 
3-second, tornado strength blast.

Then, later, before the radioactive fallout can hurt them, most won't 
know to move perpendicular away from the downwind drift of the 
fallout to get out from under it before it even arrives. And, for 
those who can't evacuate in time, few know how quick & easy it is to 
throw together an expedient fallout shelter, most anywhere they are, 
to safely wait out the radioactive fallout as it loses 99% of its 
lethal intensity in the first 48 hours.

The greatest tragedy of that high loss of life, when nukes come to 
America, will be that most who died will have needlessly perished, 
along with their families, out of ignorance of how easily they might 
have avoided becoming additional casualties, all because they were 
sold it was futile to ever try and learn how to beforehand.

You can thank the disarmament movement, and all those who've parroted 
their un-survivability theme these many decades, for these unintended 
consequences and inconvenient truth.

My article, "The Good News About Nuclear Destruction!" at 
www.ki4u.com/goodnews.htm dispels those deadly myths of nuclear 
un-survivability that have kept all our families vulnerable and 
ignorant of how to survive nukes, and will for as long as any are 
still around.
