Deja Vu: Duck and Cover "New" Policy for Nuclear Attack

Apparently extending Napolitano’s “Just deal with our new reality and be resilient because we’re going to get our ass kicked by terrorists” homeland security policy, the BO admin is offering new old and laughable advice to Americans in the now very realistic scenario of a terrorist nuke set off on American soil:  duck and cover, dude!

Suppose the unthinkable happened, and terrorists struck New York or another big city with an atom bomb. What should people there do? The government has a surprising new message: Do not flee. Get inside any stable building and don’t come out till officials say it’s safe.

The advice is based on recent scientific analyses showing that a nuclear attack is much more survivable if you immediately shield yourself from the lethal radiation that follows a blast, a simple tactic seen as saving hundreds of thousands of lives. Even staying in a car, the studies show, would reduce casualties by more than 50 percent; hunkering down in a basement would be better by far. (source)

When BO was being really really stern with Iran over their nuclear aspirations–issuing fluid deadlines and then harshly extending them when Ahmadinejad giggled at him, insulted him, and carried on, Venezuela thumbed its nose at BO’s accompanying “severe sanctions” and defiantly announced that it would be supplying Iran with gasoline (and stuff?).  As payment for this not-so-brave move considering the current Anti-American in Chief’s total indifference to a nuclear Iran (and all that will mean), Venezuela apparently agreed to allow Iran to set up some sparkly new missiles in that country.  Making nuclear hits on the U. S. not only possible but entirely probable given Iran and Venezuela’s joint announcement that they are going to establish a “New World Order” and end America’s and the west’s “dominance” over global affairs (I guess they think BO needs some assistance in that area?).  And we all know that Ahmadinejad, lunatic extraordinaire, will be tripping over himself to give al Queda a few of his shining new nukes . . . the ones he’s not placing in Venezuela and lobbing into Israel, anyway.

Now that BO has made it inevitable that terrorists get nukes, we can all count on his razor-like focus on spending trillions to ensure that when the nukes hit, we all are “educated” to sit in our cars or huddle in our basements until we’ve received maximum possible doses of radiation.

Luckily we already have public service announcements to teach us the bestest response to nuclear bombs:

  1. I don't know what's more scary – the thought of terrorists using nukes or how our great leaders :S would deal with the aftermath. I'm seriously considering emigrating to New Zealand ……

  2. I guess those of us who still have lead paint all over our walls should count ourselves lucky, maybe it will deflect some of the radiation.

    What I wouldn't give to have some GROWN UPS in charge right now!

  3. Ref:”I'm seriously considering emigrating to New Zealand…”

    A complete waste of time! America, as Robert Ringer once said (and Ronald Reagan too) is the last great hope on earth.
    Once America is gone all other countries will fall to the commie conquerors…we must defeat them here or prepare yourself for a repeat of the dark ages.

  4. I tell were would be safe, China. You notice that the major terror groups leave them alone. The kill their own people. I'm sure they would have no problem completely wiping out an entire nation in response.

  5. @CL, shocking, isn't it? (or, I guess it's not, which is really frightening and awful)

    @Linda, agreed!

    @MJ, I know, me, too. These bumblers are going to get us all killed. Including themselves, no doubt, I guess they think that coddling Muslim terrorists and allowing them to live amongst us will soften them, but it won't. That's just crazy self-delusion.

    @Norm'n, She's English, and has little regard for America (though she loves many Americans, including me ;)), so New Zealand makes sense. Besides, it's a gorgeous country. Me? I'm staying right here and doing everything I can to save our great nation.

    @Odie, yep, that's about the shape of it.

    @Kerry, yeah, it does seem incredible, doesn't it? And it is, incredibly stupid, naive, short-sighted, and narrow-minded.

    @Trestin, hmmm, well, we really have no idea what is going on in China, but they do have their share of Muslim terrorists (remember the thwarted attempt on the Olympics? They also have their own Muslim population that plans and carries out attacks. But we don't hear much about it. It's China after all, and they don't let “bad” news get out unless by accident or need (as in the case of the Olympics plot).

  6. We need to elect an adult to reverse the pussification that BO has done to America. We need a leader with a backbone whose ready to stop our enemies instead of negotiating with them like a naive, fearful, know-it-all brat.

  7. Some very Schmart military folks have told me that obama/the Dems are quite capable of being the ones who Nuke someone.

    It goes like this. They create the image that the USA is weak, which invites attack and afterwards they over-respond. There ya have it.

    I can see that happening in a NYMinute.

  8. @Teresa, we need a strong, principled, conservative leader for sure. But where is he or she?

    @Kid, oh, they are more than capable. They have little regard for human life, and once they've appeased their base by “diplomacy”, will happily set nukes off all over the globe. I'm not sure that's the plan (for example, I think Carter really was an appeaser), but I wouldn't be at all surprised if BO is not an appeaser and is simply passive-aggressively inviting global nuclear war.

What say you?
