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 radio Wednesday.
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.
On Saturday, the U.N. Security Council unanimously approved economic sanctions against North Korea that will be a serious blow, affecting a third, or $1 billion, of the communist nation’s export industry.
In response, North Korean state media said the country is “ready to retaliate with far bigger actions to make the U.S. pay a price for its crime against our country and people.”
