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:
