Increasing the Long Odds of Surviving the Coming Nuclear War

(Before It's News)





As the world moves toward World War III, we need to face the realization that we could have a nuclear exchange.  I predict that the first American carrier that is sunk wil trigger a nuclear war. What would that be like.  Where are the danger zones?

The following map depicts the impacted area of a nuclear strike upon Los Angeles.


Here is a little more detail about the blast zone effects with a direct nuclear hit on London.

Nobody knows the actual targets, but the following represents a good faith effort to predict and this is typical of what many familiar with the topic think is likely.



Even if one survives the initial blast, one has to worry about the radiation that will follow.  Compare and combine the nuclear blast map, above, with the nuclear radiation map, below. It is clear that a nuclear exchange will devastate this country.

The obvious question is, “Are there things that can be done to survive such a calamity?”  The answer is largely no, but there are some things people can do to increase their chances of survival  provided they are not in the blast zone.

Here are a few suggestions and these suggestions represent triage because the war could start at any time. This list is not exhaustive by any means.


1. It Takes Money to Prepare

Even if you survive a nuclear attack, you will face an economic collapse. I have committed much effort, time and resources illustrating how a coming economic collapse is unavoidable and how the elite have conspired to steal as many of your assets as possible prior to the collapse and/or a nuclar war. There are some common sense things one can do which could increase the chances of surviving a major societal meltdown resulting from an economic collapse which would follow a nuclear exchange.

I would strongly suggest that you keep your gas tank filled in case you have to bug out.

2. Making a List and Check It Twice

If you survive the intial attack, you will need to think about what is next. Buy a good prepper book. Holly Deyo is an excellent source for this information ( In the interim, procure your food, water, guns, ammo and home security adjustments.  If you do not have a big dog, consider obtaining a pair. These animals will be your companion, home security system and ally if someone attempts to breach your home with bad intent. Of course, you will have to store dog food as well.

Sit down and construct a list of what you will need and make a complete list after reading a good prepper book.

After a nuclear attack, you will have no resources to draw upon other than what was saved.  Top soil will be polluted down to about 20-24 inches and will remain polluted for a couple of years.

Water will be radiated and dangerous to drink. You must have stored water to get through and you should have some water treatment and water filtration equiopment.

3. Educate Yourself

Follow people in the Independent Media. Turn off the sports and get to work learning about your geopolitical world. I believe it is possible to anticipate such an attack by being abreast of the latest events and you will not learn about the dangers from CNN, or the Wall Street Journal until it is too late.

4. Rural Vs. Urban

We have to live our lives for today and it may not be possible to move to a rural area because of your job. However, one survivalist that I was speaking with estimates that the rate of survival for a country in economic chaos would be 10 times higher for rural residents as opposed to urban residents following a nuclear attack. Consider buying a place in an isolated area and commuting to work in the interim. Urban areas are the prime targets for nuclear bombs.

After an economic collapse, following a nuclear exchange, you will not have a job and your retirement and savings will likely be wiped out and confiscated by any banksters who have survived, but if you are in a rural area, you have increased your chances for survival and at least you may survive.

5. Create and Store Your Own Food

With regard to storing food, you need to do so immediately. I recommend storing two years worth of food. However, you need to master the art of growing food inside your home. There are plenty of resources which can teach you how to do that. However, you would be wise if you would create a hiding place in which you can store food and water safely in a hidden location.  If you are ever robbed, you will not have exhausted your food supplies.  You are most likely to be robbed by FEMA or one of their mercenary groups (e.g. Academia) during the beginning of the crisis because food and water will be used as weapons to control you. I am personally aware of FEMA going to selected homeowners in order to track a family’s reserve food and water supplies. Remember, water is sunlight and temperature sensitive. There are plenty of prepper manuals that you can consult for instructions on how to meet these needs.

The biggest threat to survival is death due to dehydration and starving to death.  Contaminated water will also pose a threat. There are plenty of places to purchase large drums and obtain water tablets for water purification purposes.  Obtain a pair of water filters in case you have to go mobile to survive.

Finally, learn to grow your own food within your residence. Your garden will likely be raided by humans and hungry animals alike. There are plenty of prepper manuals which can teach you how to accomplish this task.

6. Personal Supplies

Of course you will need toothpaste, toiletries, eating utensils, etc. For a complete list of personal items see Steve Quayle’s list on his website.

7. Stockpile Medicines and Medical Supplies

 If you or your family has a chronic health condition, it is critical that you have 6 months to a year in medicine. Also, you should research natural alternatives to treatment for health conditions in case you are not able to meet this goal due to the inability to obtain prescriptions. Don’t forget to obtain some pain medication and antibiotics in case of unforeseen emergencies.  Make a trip to Mexico and sneak across medication in old pill bottles in order to escape detection by the Border Patrol who will ask you if you obtained medication in Mexico when you come back across the border.

If you can safely ration your existing medication doses, do so and store the excesses. Make sure you also have a first aid kit. Take a First Aid class including CPR at your local fire station. Do not forget your hygiene supplies.

Finally, because we are talking nuclear, I would say, iodine, iodine, iodine.   Do not forget about gas masks for each member of your family and make sure to store extras. If you have the means to obtain body armor, do so now, because Congress is preparing to outlaw the private use of body armor.

Some are thinking that this is a lot of work. My response would be, how bad do you want you and your family to survive?  Natural health care needs can be obtained at a number of sites. I am leaving the one that I use.

8. Guns and Ammunition

darpa gun behind grass Yamamoto-Japanese-AdmiralRegardless of your moral convictions, ask yourself if you want your family to survive.

Buy your guns off the books from private parties and at gun shows.

Have a safe location that you can bury guns so that when gun confiscation begins, you will not be left totally defenseless.


If you survive, you will be living in a Mad Max environment with lost of dangerous people existing at various levels of mental health.

It is recommended that you have 3 types of weapons: (1) pistols for close in fighting; (2) shotguns for defense of the entrance to your home; and, (3) a rifle with a scope in order to fight back against long-range snipers that do not want to storm your home because you appear to be prepared. Immediately, obtain weapons instruction for you and your family, firearms training and then practice!  Conduct mock raids on your residence so that you can see your vulnerabilities. An armed populace makes a people more feared by an abusive government. If I had no gun training at all, I would opt for a shotgun with regard to home defense.

 9. Obtain Night Vision Equipment

If your family is located in a fixed location, the challenges of defending your property go up exponentially at night because you cannot see
where the threat is coming from. Night vision equipment is not cheap, but your family is literally defenseless without it after the sun goes down.

10. Obtain a Foldout Tent and Portable Food Supplies

So far the advice has been focused on what to do if you are bugging in. What would you do if you had to bug out. A ten and portable food supples will be essential as would a sleeping bag, etc.  If you have to bug out, stay off the main roads.  Don’t trust anyone in a  uniform, there will be imposters.

11.  Duct Tape and Geiger Counters

There may be a time when you are forced to hunker down in the smallest room in your house. You will have to seal off the room from radiation.  Geiger counters are your first line of defense.  Practice using the tape to seal the intended room because time could be of the essense.

12. Prepare to Survive in the Raw Elements and Build a New Culture for Your Family

It is possible that you can learn to survive in the raw elements without heating and central air conditioning. You may not have lights. Obtain flashlights, many batteries and a hand crank radio. Make sure you have clothes befitting all weather that you may encounter because a crisis that begins in January, may not be over by August.

Take a weekend and pretend the grid is down. This will allow you to see firsthand what supplies you will need. When should you perform this drill? There is no time like the present. Also, take a camping weekend where you simulate having to “bug out”.

To people with generators, congratulations on your foresight. However, if you are the only house on the block with lights, how long do you think it will be until you have unwanted visitors with bad intent?

Don’t forget about procuring non-electronic forms of entertainment. This should include board games and educational materials for your children. You will want to establish some normalcy for the sake of your children. You are preparing to adopt a new way of life. Make the new life worth living.

I would also recommend that every personal library contain The Constitution of the United States. After the chaos subsides, we will need to rebuild. You will not want to live in a “might makes right” society.

13.  Prepare Yourself Physically

If you are on the run, you may have to travel up to 20 miles per day. Get in shape, begin to walk, jog or run. The better shape you are in, the better.

Take self-defense classes. Many of these classes are offered free of charge at churches and community centers.

Practice shooting on a regular basis. If you can afford it, take gun safety and shooting lessons.


Survival is never guaranteed, salvation is! And do not forget one of your most important resources, your Bible.


Safety is guaranteed to nobody. . However, there are a few things you can to increase your chances, but not guarantee, your survival.  If you are unlucky enough to be in a blast zone, make sure your heart is right with God ahead of time.

  • If you still live in SoCal, you will understand that all of the above recomendations are futile. Bend over and kiss your ass goodbye.

    • Ted

      So you are saying be flexible too? I can barely touch my knees?

  • WHITE MAN come to restore LAW & ORDER and quickly you prepare for Nuclear War!! LOL! :lol:

    Isn’t that why you wanted Donald Trump? Why all the fear now? What happened? I thought you wanted law & order?

    You’re beginning to show your racist left-leaning liberal thinking Pizzahut. You and MA (Mike Adams). :twisted:

  • This is a gross exaggeration of the power of nuclear weapons. Most experts say that t would take between 10 and 20 nukes to wipe out LA. The most powerful nuke ever developed called th Czar bomb by the Russians was. 50 megaton bomb. It weigh 23 tons and could not be transported by missle r plane. They had to modify a bomber and drop t with parachutes in order to get out of the way. This bomb had a 20 mile diameter blast radius. That is complete annihilation. In comparison, most missles on subs are 500 kilotons or .5 megatons. They are tiny compared to such a weapon. The reality is most nukes will be tactical nukes used to take out bases and bunkers, aircraft carriers and possibly created tidal waves. Depopulation is the last actions on this list for Russia and the US. Both sides want to eliminate the others weapons and armies first.

    • Ah ! but its not the blast that gets you. Those that die completely unsuspecting in the initial blast will be the lucky ones.

      Its the looters and crazies after drugs, booze, gasoline, and your daughter.
      Not to mention all the patriot “snipers” out there that will shoot at anything that moves in their line of fire, just because its fun.

      And if the lack of food and clean water and disease does not finally destroy you, the constant high background radiation eventually will.
