A fairly well-written, non-hysterical assessment of the effects of all-out nuclear war. If this is true, then most of what we have been told (and believed) for decades is probably wrong and should therefore be discarded.

If the article is accurate, then the missile silos in central Montana and Malmstrom Air Base in Great Falls would be among the first to be hit. This means that everyone living within a reasonably limited distance (50 miles is my guess) of the area would either be killed outright or die within a few weeks or months of the event. Further away (up to 200 miles), people would die from cancers or radiation sickness, but these would be spread over years and even decades, depending on the distance from the event.

Much of Montana would be adversely affected, but it is not likely that there would be immediate, catastrophic destruction and damage, except in an extreme localized area, i.e., in close proximity to the missile silos.

I suspect that the author has hit the nail on the head.

Under my leadership, the Republican Party will always support the creation of strong, thriving, healthy American families. We want to make it easier for mothers and fathers to have babies, not harder! That includes supporting the availability of fertility treatments like IVF in every State in America. Like the OVERWHELMING MAJORITY of Americans, including the VAST MAJORITY of Republicans, Conservatives, Christians, and Pro-Life Americans, I strongly support the availability of IVF for couples who are trying to have a precious baby. Today, I am calling on the Alabama Legislature to act quickly to find an immediate solution to preserve the availability of IVF in Alabama. The Republican Party should always be on the side of the Miracle of Life - and the side of Mothers, Fathers, and their Beautiful Babies. IVF is an important part of that, and our Great Republican Party will always be with you, in your quest, for the ULTIMATE JOY IN LIFE!
