Looks like they've already won if this tiny little insignificant "country" can scare us

It feels like the media is getting nuts with driving home conflict and controversy coverage. Last week we're threatening Nuclear War with North Korea and this week it's race baiting conflicts in Charlottesville.

You do realize those same guys travel from all over the country doing those demonstrations in various areas around the country.

They were in Portland a month or so before that this summer. It was right after the MAX line stabbing where a guy went nuts hurling insults at a black teen and a Muslims teen before stabbing and killing two guys that stood up to him.

Now we've all but forgotten we were talking nuclear war last week prior to the race baiting this week and the Russian whatever the weeks before that. Next up another round of foreign terrorist attacks. This time in Barcelona. Once you catch on to the cycles of news stories you tend to release its hold over you.

Though I still think it's just nuts.

Here you go.

Note, for significant fallout threat you need some sort of dirty blast - normally achieved when the fireball touches the earth (surface blast). Not that there isn't fallout from most blasts and an air blast can disperse radiation much further, but if you want significant casualties as a result of fallout from the attack, a surface blast is definitely the way to go.

Don't worry about NK using nukes on CONUS with their current technology. This is all "Trumped" up for you to not think about Trump's "Russer" problem. This is a PHYOP operation being conducted on the American public. Don't fall for it. Go and just live your live. You are more likely to be killed in an every day car accident or falling off the toilet.

Short fat @ NK thinks of himself as some kind of Show Biz mogul. Given that, he'll probably target Hollywood first - in LA.

If it's the monsoon season - occasional heavy rains for several days running - the blast would never reach you - blast dissipates with distance. Any radiation from contaminated soil & etc. - a ground burst - would be washed down by rain or other precipitation - so you'd not feel any direct effects from that.

If you are worried about a nuke attack, go out a buy and old school desk. Place it anywhere in your home. When you see the flash, get under the desk. That will keep you totally safe. That's what they told us in school when I was a kid, so it must be true.
