In the event of a 5 minute warning that a nuclear bomb was heading your way, what would you do?

Wasn't hoping for any particular answers stattman, just wondered. Seem to recall a film about it from 50/60s, think I'd just sit back and have a coffee and put some favourite music on presuming didn't have time to get to family or friends.

I'd go outside & stand right under it. A quick merciful death as opposed to a drawn out death from radiation poisoning, starvation & dehydration. The surviving mutants wouldn't last long! Who'd want to face a future where the surviving women all wound up looking like Katie Price!

It's not necessarily nuclear bombs you have to worry about if the warmongers 'succeed' and this spreads beyond Ukraine.
Modern 'conventional' bombs will flatten major cities in no time.

another one. stupefying. this is a disaster. please explain how anyone benefits from war. its so the opposite its simply beyond belief anyone could come up with such infantile garbage, and that it has to be refuted. this forum is a shocking place.

rasputin is a deranged megalomaniac who kills evryone in his way, hes already smashed up tiny georgia stole crimea and actually invaded ukraine 8 years ago. hes on record as not recognising it as a country, saying its a 'russian' and blamed lenin(!) for giving it away. if the west 'wanted' war its gone a funny way about it, one after the other turning up in the kremlin and pleading with him not to start war, although its possible he couldnt hear what they were saying, given the distance from one end of the table to the other.

abbott and corbyn prefer him and always side with our enemies and hate the west. the problem is we appeased him when he started invading and killing. dont forget corbyn and co. wouldnt have it he poisons people on british soil. they have been wrong about everything all their lives. as lenin siad. western leftists are 'useful idiots'. he wasnt wrong

mitolo, suppose Russia or China were on the verge of signing a military pact with Mexico, which could involve missiles being placed close to the American / Mexico border, how do you think the Americans would react?

No waffle please.
Report mitolo March 1, 2022 4:55 PM GMT
aside from ukriane not being near signing and even if it did, it has a right to self determination, its an utterly childish non-question. and nato is a a defensive organisation and no nato member can attack another, thats why he hates and fears it. but its a smoekescreen. hes always said ukraine is russia and that is the root of it. amazing you can see the viewpoint of a psychopath and think democratiically elected states are a menace to him and his dictatorship.

he moved against uktaine in 2014 when it ousted his puppet yanukovich **** the election and a popular uprising sent him fleeing with all his millions to moscow. when it tried to join the E.U. he got nasty and invaded crimea. he is scared of a free pluralistic democracy on his border that serves to highlight what a grotesque murderous kleptocracy he presides over

There are no nuclear weapons in Ukraine. And NATO has refused to allow Ukraine to join it.

As expected, mitilo had no answer to the question, only foul mouthed abuse.

Who said there are nuclear weapons in Ukraine?

Hasn't the intention been since the 2008 Bucharest summit for Ukraine to join NATO?

Do you want to "try again"?
Report screaming from beneaththewaves March 1, 2022 5:11 PM GMT
2008 is fourteen years ago. In all that time NATO has done nothing to make Ukraine a member.

It was you who brought up the comparison with China installing nuclear weapons in Mexico, next to the USA. There are no nuclear weapons in Ukraine, next to Russia.

There WERE nuclear weapons in Ukraine, but Ukraine gave them all up in exchange for guarantees on its security and territorial integrity signed by the US, the UK, France and Putin.

why do people bring all this wateraboutery into it  - putin is killing children and there are people on the forums who actually support it  as civilians are targeted  - putin is now saying 'stay and die' to kiev   - so if that is not targeting civilians I don't know what is

'leave or die'   can you imagine that?

they are going to take out anyone they fancy that is in their way
Report mitolo March 1, 2022 5:26 PM GMT
if ukraine wants to join who is ptuin to say no? sweden and finland said last year they was thinking about it and he didnt like that either. dangerous nasty sweden joining in to menace russia? or fed up with cyberwafare and incursions from russia into the baltic. it has even gone as far as re-introducing conscription. why are they doing this? to frighten russia?

the nonsense about mexico is the only way you can come up with any absurd way of justifying your position. and nato does not station missiles, unlike putin.

and just in the spectacularly unlikely  scenario you posit, if the mexicans invited a brutal murderous dictator who uses mini-nuclear weapons to kill even people weve never heard of to turn up with a load of rockets and plant them on their territory would you be cheering for a u.s. invasion? doubt it. but you are explaining away this one. and fwiw, any mexican president who even mentioned such an idea would be dead within 24 hours.

the reason the baltic states fell over themselves to join nato is because theyve been saying this would happen for the last 20 years, not that you will have noticed. he doesnt differentiate between the ussr and russia. putin subjects them to massive cyberattacks. why.?
Report mitolo March 1, 2022 5:29 PM GMT
small detail. ukraine was given 'assurances' not guarantees. unfortunately. putin also chucked in cheap gas and then cut it off when they didnt do what they were told.

there was a site called nukemap which let you see the effects of a bomb on your city.  in the uk over 40 cities would be hit, the overall radiation would blanket the country.  feeling good that we might have fired a few back is little comfort to the dead.  parts of Russia would be unaffected as the country is so big and spread out.  a nuclear exchange is the end of europe and if the Chinese decide to finish the us off possibly the world.
