ALPHA (A): Please visit the enclosed website (https://nuclearsecrecy.com/nukemap/) (https://nuclearsecrecy.com/nukemap/), which provides accurate simulations of the likely effects of a thermo-nuclear attack.
-Enter a location inhabited by friends, family, or other loved ones, and then choose and detonate a warhead. You may select any weapon you like, but try out at least the atomic, hydrogen, and tsar bombs.
-After a few rounds, observe and add advanced features like impact crater, radioactive fallout, and casualty estimates.
-Record at your discretion the results of several detonations.
BRAVO (B): Read “Apocalypse Soon,” (2003) by former Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara
McNamara (2003).pdf (https://vccs.instructure.com/courses/398103/files/107954925?verifier=0kKLag8RrRQGnnmVXGj4CaF7LdYYr2Xq4Vqav5oE&wrap=1)
CHARLIE (C): Based on and referencing your research at levels Alpha and Bravo, please answer the following in two to three strong paragraphs per question.
- How did it come to this? What international, scientific, military, political, and/or other conditions resulted in the current comparative and international distribution of thermo-nuclear weapons?
- Are there any realistic prospects for disarmament in your opinion, such as testing bans, prohibition of tactical nukes, enforcement of non-proliferation, or other means? Be specific.
- Should Iran and/or North Korea be permitted to maintain a nuclear deterrent, or should America or the West militarily intervene to stop them?
- Is this situation morally acceptable? Do you feel prepared to inhabit a world that could ignite at the touch of a few buttons? (Any and all religious, philosophical, scientific, and/or political opinions welcome.)
