Reality of Jericho

nuclear explosion

I’ve been watching the TV show Jericho for free on CBS Innertube. The story line is that several US cities were destroyed by hydrogen suitcase bombs planted by terrorists. Jericho is a small town outside of Denver trying to cope with this disaster and the degrading state of the country. Homeland Security is featured in the show, and they do as terrible a job as you would expect.

 So, it got me thinking, what is the actual plan if this happens?

First, Homeland Security wants you to be prepared. They’ve created a preparedness website to help you plan for a disaster. It includes helpful tips on preparing your family, even for everyday things like fires, floods, and power outtages.

The Pentagon’s plan is to prevent an attack by nuking any foreign hostiles before they can attack the US. This of course wouldn’t prevent the attack shown in Jericho (or a 9/11 type attack either), since the weapons used in the show were smuggled into the US and triggered locally (and by the way, Bush already has a plan to nuke Iran). A domestic prevention is unlikely, since a majority of US military & federal resources are scooping up oil the Middle East. Also, considering how many Mexicans I saw in California last month, I’d say our borders are anything by secure. 

If or when our infrastructure is destroyed by a disaster, things will fall apart rapidly. I think there won’t be any plan that will effectively work because people go crazy and get primitive when faced with a traumatic experience. Just look at what happened in New Orleans. Not to mention all the crime and corruption that happened AFTER the goverment responded. 

What are we supposed to do? Build bunkers & collect an arsenal?

The best resource I’ve found for preparing yourself for any disaster, including airplane hijackings, armed robbery, or a nuclear attack is Secrets of Survival. If you are paranoid or just like to be prepared, that site will give you all the insights and info you need to know.

Beyond that, be good to your neighbors (including the foreign ones) so this doesn’t happen!
