The Nuclear Threat

Why should I prepare for this? The cold war is over isn’t it? This is far from the truth and the threat is higher now than it has ever been.  

On July 14, 2005, a top Chinese general threatened nuclear war against the United States, noting that China would destroy “hundreds of cities” in America if the U.S. honors its commitment to defend Taiwan against a Chinese attack:

US Senate votes to revive US nuclear weapon program

Was Opening of China's Bomb Shelters a Deception? Well the US had dropped its fallout shelter program, Russia and China have expanded theirs. They are preparing for their people, and the US is living it up to their people to do for themselves.

Russia to deploy new hypersonic missile systems - Putin  MOSCOW, September 27 (RIA Novosti) - President Vladimir Putin said Tuesday that Russia would deploy new hypersonic missile systems that will be virtually invulnerable to enemy defenses.

There are many more news stories about China treating to nuking America over the last few years, and Russia is not much better, they have threaten to bring down our Power Grid with a nuke. They even had a war game using this tactic.

Quote from the Congressional Record: June 9 (House) “Of course I heard what he said, but I did not understand it because I do not understand Russian. But then it was translated, and this is what he said: ``If we really wanted to hurt you with no fear of retaliation, we would launch an SLBM,'' which if it was launched in a submarine at sea, we really would not know for certain where it came from. ``We would launch an SLBM, we would detonate a nuclear weapon high above your country, and we would shut down your power grid and your communications for 6 months or so.''

The third-ranking communist was there in the country. His name is Alexander Shurbanov, and he smiled and said, ``And if one weapon would not do it, we have some spares.'' I think the number of those spares now is something like 6,000 weapons.”  

I have not even touched on the terror threat, and could go on and on, but if you want to read more news stories see my news page. For preparing for this threat the best place I have found is Shane Connor’s site KI4U. I would start with:
