Would You Survive a Nuclear Attack?

Would You Survive a Nuclear Attack?

With North Korea launching new warheads weekly, the implications are terrifying.

The word “nuclear” brings to mind the mushroom clouds of World War II.  We imagine the violent ends that many had in Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

According to U.S. Intelligence, Kim Jong Un most likely has about sixty warheads stockpiled.  Some of these warheads could reach U.S. soil.

The tensions have risen since new economic sanctions, with even China voting against North Korea.  The sanctions will gouge North Korea almost $1 billion of its export industry.  That’s one-third of its economy.

The hermit country says they are “ready to retaliate with far bigger actions to make the U.S. pay a price for its crime against our country and people.”

But the question remains.  If Kim Jong Un decided to press the launch button, could those horrifying ends could happen here?

Glenn Beck discussed the issue on his radio show.  Listen below:

Yeah, most likely you would survive a nuclear attack on the United States.  It would be horrible, but most people would survive.

The Blaze Reports: 

With the threat of North Korea’s nuclear weapons looming, everyone is on edge. Would you survive a nuclear attack? Glenn Beck and the guys discussed the practical question on Wednesday’s “The Glenn Beck Radio Program.”

While people fear dying in a nuclear attack, the bigger issue is what nuclear weapons would do to the electric grid and other vital infrastructure.

“Yeah, most likely you would survive a nuclear attack on the United States,” Glenn said. “It would be horrible, but most people would survive.”

According to a U.S. intelligence report, officials believe that North Korea has successfully built a miniaturized nuclear warhead. While intelligence about the hermit kingdom is limited, U.S. officials have estimated that North Korea’s Kim Jong Un has as many as 60 nuclear weapons at his disposal. Two officials confirmed that a missile test in late July showed that North Korea is capable of reaching nearly any location on the U.S. mainland.
