... to Putin, Biden, Congress and every other world leader. Then again, they probably don’t care. Even for their friends and families that wouldn’t be in the bunkers with them. I don’t see how anyone can watch this and not be moved to say I’d do anything for this not to happen. But government tends to attract sociopaths.

impressions, thoughts & takeaways watching the depiction of the aftermath, was that it would be a lot worse. (at the end, words scroll stating the same- "actual would probably be worse")
One way it will likely be worse, is that people will not be a civil or caring (at all)
If you are wounded, you are dead- medical supplies are not going to be restocked. U use a gauze wrap, and it's the last. whatever is around, is all there is...
Even small wounds can be fatal. People will not be sane or give a rip about anything or anybody. Prepare for vicious animals- injured starving and shell shocked animals are violent and irrational. If exposed at all you are probably a dead person walking, and ull fund out soon enough. We just took in 1883. Same thing. So many ways to die, and the world doesnt care about you. In 20, 50, 75, 100 years , (zerohedge's byline) we ALL are going to be dead, so use whatever time you have, wisely, it's passing as you read... and wont be back..
This current situation, is it goes hot, is going to be REAL bad, real quick, and if it doesnt go hot, our global idiocracy and the current imminent crash of systems is going to be REAL bad, over a prolonged timeframe. Either way, lots of REAL bad suffering , death will be a welcome relief...my sister used to say "life's a bitch, and then u die" ,,, yeah, kinda like that... if you believe there's some kind of supernatural "plan for YOUR life" then u better be gearing up to be doing it, cuz zero hour is almost here.

Thanks Hal. I saw this when it was progonally aired but plan to watch it again so thx for the link. I recommend that you see "On the Beach". Gregory Peck and Anthony Perkins are aboard a submarine after a nuke war. They hear surface noises coming from S.F. hoping to find someone alive only to find that everyone's gone. Then land in Australia to find people alive, yet doomed to the eventual fallout that will end all. It was the 1st WWIII movie and was filmed in 1959.

Have been looking for this.

Another one is "Threads", which starts in England and has other countries in it also.
Used to be a debate as to which movie is better.

I remember watching this but want scared... at the time it was just a movie. Now I’m at minute 55:25 and my heart is racing. The special effects aren’t as bad as I’d imagined. Especially the nukes coming out of the silos.
And just as in real life, all of the citizens can see how ridiculous an option this would be while the powers that be play with our very existence. Like the black soldier said, they’re underground with a drink whistling dixie. And us poor slobs are taking the brunt of this as the Devil himself laughs. Thanks for posting. Everyone should see this. Shows how much your preps will do when both sides push the button.

I had the same feeling as you had. When I watched that movie in 1983 I was a kid and I founded that movie to be slightly dull. Today I downloaded that movie from internet (torrent) in Blue Ray quality. I was shocked. Horrifying movie and worse... horrifying reality today.

So I’m watching this on the TV and my daughter comes down. I said I doubt you’d wanna watch this. And she tells me they’ve been talking about nuclear war in government class. All this time I was trying to shield her from the terrifying possibility of nuclear war but she already knew. Then I said well in that case if you see or hear a blast get down, don’t look at it and shield yourself from the flying glass. She then says she knows and that she thinks I should move my indoor garden away from the windows. The lesson I learned was we should tell the kids what’s going on. They can be helpful in the preps and aren’t as fragile as one might think. She’s 15 and has anxiety so I thought I was being helpful. I was really wrong.

True GSD family you are-you get it-I only watched it once but that wormy little fuk told his daughter(paraphrase)”No honey, Rex has to stay outside”(dont remember dogs name)…he let his dog die waiting outside the shelter door…Like I say, I have people Id do that to first..
I understand the writers had an agenda and were making some twisted point about tough choices but that wouldn't be me…only other thing I remember about the show was the woman hanging out laundry seeing the missiles

"When the Wind Blows" (1986) - British animated

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/When_the_Wind_Blows_(1986_film)

When the Wind Blows is a 1986 British animated disaster film directed by Jimmy Murakami based on Raymond Briggs' comic book of the same name. The film stars the voices of John Mills and Peggy Ashcroft as the two main characters and was scored by Roger Waters. The film accounts a rural English couple's attempt to survive a nearby nuclear attack and maintain a sense of normality in the subsequent fallout and nuclear winter.[3]

This was an HBO movie that aired in 1984. The quality of the video is pretty bad but watchable. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=knSSUEdLcvg&ab_channel=wanabee2w

The name of the movie is "Countdown to Looking Glass". This is done CNN style (long before CNN). Covers an 8 day period and starts with a bank collapse of 3 federal reserve branches, and ends with the president leaving on the nuclear command and control 747.

Jeff Nyquist said the Soviets seriously considered starting a war in 1983, but the Soviet Army (of the three legged Soviet triad of power: Army, KGB, Party) would obtain too much control so they cancelled.

This makes no sense. Something must have been lost in translation here.

All facets of Soviet life were under very tight control of the KGB, which in the 80s had 2 million people working in its ranks. The Russian Army was (and remains) under a very tight Communist party control. Every field and headquarter commander has to obey a Politruk, an supervising officer on site who answers directly to the Communist Party and its Central Politburo.

Once the Politburo in Moscow decides on some particular course of action following prolonged discussion in the communist ranks, all the communists have to follow its decrees (those who do not want to follow used to defect to the West). Since there is no longer "the West" to defect to and we are all commies now, nowadays the dissenters within ranks are probably just shot or have a "heart attack" as was the case with the Chief Commander of Russian Armed Forces and Minister of Defense Gen. Sergey Shoigu. Shoigu has not been seen in public since the middle of March!

Within hours, the Russians responded to a new wave of speculation about the fate of Sergei Shoigu by publishing a recording of his participation. Russian media claim that the head of the Ministry of National Defense held a meeting with the leadership of his ministry on Saturday morning.

https://www.facebook.com/mod.mil.rus/videos/1119332142257577/

Shoigu stated that "taking into account the conduct of a special military operation on the territory of Ukraine, in 2022 it is necessary to maintain the established pace of arms deliveries." He argued that some of them are ahead of schedule, and the priority is precision long-range weapons, aircraft, as well as maintaining the combat readiness of strategic nuclear forces.
+3 # triadsrm 2022-03-26 08:02
You're right, the Party (with least weapons) is at the top of control, with KGB second, and Army (with most weapons) third. However, if one of the other legs of the triad gets out of control or gains too much power, the other two rise up and put it down. In the case of a nuclear war, and this case it was 1983, the Army was feared to be in a position to have too much control, so the Party and KBG put a stop to it.

This was also part of the peace offensive started by the Soviets in the 1980s, that was promulgated thru the media. In response to the Pershing missiles and Reagan pushback. There were still a lot of people who voted for Carter who thought "better Red than dead". Afterward, the phony fall of the Soviet Union happened and a new phase occurred (see Anatoly Golitzen "New Lies for Old")

30 years of fiction books, non-fiction books, documentaries, movies, news stories, scientific papers, doomsdayers, people talking about a nuclear holocaust at school, home, church, and the workplace had nothing to do with this 1983 movie.

It was predictive programming.

Also I once mentioned this but forgot the particulars - it appeared in the comment section:

"In 2009, microbiologist Joseph Moshe called in to Dr. True Ott's radio show, claiming that Baxter labs (Ukraine) was incorporating a bioweapon into its vaccine. The next day, a swat team surrounded his car, he was taken into custody, and extradited to Israel." Moshe was immune to pepper spray - characteristic of Mossad training - a good Israeli.

It was true Baxter made a "mistake" (trying to get lucky some said) by mixing two live viruses together in a "vaccine". Look it up on the net.
