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.
