After the bomb is too late

-A A +A
By The Staff

In contemplating Armageddon, think with me of what happens shortly after a nuclear bomb or bombs are detonated over cities of the world. The power grids are permanently destroyed, which stops everything. The distribution of water and food ceases. All mobility is permanently impaired. Families that have wisely stored food come under attack by other hungry people. People who wisely and immediately fill their bathtubs with water are shortly dismayed when the bathtub drain slowly releases the water. Isolated towns like Los Alamos with no easy water access fare worst. Even if water is available at riverside or lakeside cities, there is no easy way to purify it. Sickness becomes rampant. Without power there is neither light nor heat. If it is winter, water pipes burst. Repairs are impossible but no matter as there is no water supply. Vehicles with electronic systems are disabled. All vehicular traffic ceases when the gas in tanks is used up. There is no need to go anywhere as there is no safe place to go to. The immediate chaos gives way to panic and lawlessness.No person is safe. The civilian leaderships, which have been cause of the attacks together with the politicians who have acquiesced, the CEOs of the military/industrial complex and the obedient militarists all die, too. Death comes equally to the rich and the poor. The born-agains and all other religious also succumb.Too late is it realized that we are all on the same planet and necessarily interconnected. Too late it is realized that no one is secure unless everyone is secure and that doing good instead of doing ill would have been a wise decision. Too late it is realized that abolition of nuclear weapons would have been a wise decision and that even one bomb is too many. Manufacture of bombs and other things designed for killing instead of manufacture of good things to be given away as freely as the bombs were given away is – too late – recognized as the ultimate mistake.It has been predicted that there is a transition time in the Mayan calendar. It is the winter solstice of 2012. My prediction is that it will be the fall of 2013 when humanity perishes. Will the powerful understand and learn from the folly of the present war? Can his war be the war to end all wars?Edward GrothusLos Alamos
