Well, considering that China is probably most to blame for the DPRK developing nuclear weapons and ballistic missile technology, it's only fair they tell people how to clean up afterwards.

I hope everyone in the US already has their iodine tablets. When this pops off, it'll be impossible to get them. The radiation cloud is going to go around the whole earth for about 30 days.

There is effectively no civilian leadership our government at the moment to make sure this doesn't happen.

Well good for China, doing something proactive for their citizens. Can we get someone over at the UN to give China a gold star for the day?

The whole point of his statement was to draw responsibility away from Putin, not out it where it belonged.

Pakistan and Russia, perhaps, but not China.  They have literally zero interest in seeing the DPRK become a nuclear power, and every reason to NOT want it to happen.

China is trying to REDUCE U.S. engagement in the South China Sea, not increase it.  Their REAL conflict of interest is the buffer created by having North Korea between them and the U.S.-Supported South.

Use an US Army approved Mk-7 BRUM decontamination device. I  just so happen to have  a stockpile of these life saving devices. I am selling them for the low price of only $399.94. Get one to protect your family, and I'll throw in a smaller backup unit for only $79.99

The part of Ukraine that wants to be Russia


http://www.newsweek.com/north-korea-n​o​rth-korea-missiles-north-korea-nuclear​-north-korea-missiles-650504

Stating that it was "less likely" that Russian engineers could have directly worked on the North's missiles, the conclusion is drawn that the Soviet Rd-250 missiles and the requisite experience with that class of missile stemmed from factories either from the top Russian rocket engine manufacturer Energomash or the Ukraine's KB Yuzhnoye.
"One has to conclude that the modified engines were made in those factories," the report reads.
The latter company has a factory based in Dnipro, Ukraine, located inside a part of the country attempting to break away and join Russia amid a military conflict, and U.S. intelligence agencies believe the Soviet rockets in North Korea were likely made there, as the state-owned factory has struggled, The New York Timesreported.

Despite the panic about radiation, almost no one outside the blast radius will die.

At least until the cancers kick in years later.

And corrupt, poor, farked up. Which is how Best Korea can purchase the missile tech from individuals.

Russia isn't going to sell their farking tech to anyone, least of all someone who will resell it to God knows who (and I am guessing, Best Korea will probably resell it to everyone who can't figure out how to build missiles on their own, so, to any shiathole).

As a matter of fact, they tend to become radioactive.

I remember being in the Army back in the late 80's and my drill instructor telling us what to do when/if we saw a nuclear blast. He would walk around the troops and ask silly questions.

Drill Sgt: Private! What do you do when you hear a big bang and a large flash of light?
Private: More then likely die. If I'm that close to a nuke going off, its already too late. I'm dead.

Not if it's made of wires. If you want to stop gamma rays, you need solid lead. Shielding against neutrons needs water, a hydrated material such as concrete, or a hydrocarbon like paraffin.

On the other hand, a sheet of paper will block alpha and beta particles. But if an alpha or beta emitter gets into your body, it can fark you up pretty quickly, as Alexander Litvinenko discovered.

Uhm, I-131 has a half-life of 8 days. Given the significantly small stockpile of weapons and delivery vehicles that the DPRK has in their possession, the only folks who will actually need any potassium iodide would be those living on the very edge of the blast radius and slightly down-wind of it. Even then, it's really only the young that have to worry much about I-131 uptake. Anyone past their teens doesn't have nearly as much to worry about.

It should also be noted that even if the DPRK used nuclear weapons against the US or her allies, it would be very, very unlikely to see retaliation in kind. Instead, I think you'd see a largely conventional war to help prevent the involvement of the PRC or Russian Federation.

This is my thought, too.

We have enough conventional munitions to level NK; it only makes sense to retaliate with nuclear weapons if the aggressor has enough to obliterate your country at which point it's MAD.

If NK only has a missle or two and half a dozen warheads it wouldn't be pretty on our end - but nothing that enough conventional missiles to darken the sky over Pyongyang wouldn't fix.

 No sense in starting full on WWIII over fatty Kim.

Washington, D.C. gets NUKED! (DAY AFTER DISASTER)
Youtube WCme_K6MYLY


Tips at about 32 minutes in.  Common sense stuff. Don't look at the light, Initially try to keep your mouth open so the pressure doesn't burst your eardrums, then keep your mouth close and put a mask/cloth over your mouth and nose to filter air as best you can.  Don't eat or Drink until decontaminated or you could take in radiation  Clear the area quickly if you can upwind, but if you can't get away find the best structure with an internal room either underground or lowest floor to sit out the fallout.
