February 28, 2023 | Do Not Fear Nuclear War – You Can Survive!

Martin Armstrong

Martin Arthur Armstrong is current chairman and founder of Armstrong Economics. He is best known for his economic predictions based on the Economic Confidence Model, which he developed.

QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong I have been reading your blogs for the last couple of years. I’m a simple human, not a scholar but so scared about nuclear war, Is nuclear war 100 percent coming here in the USA? If so any suggestions as to what we can do to survive? where should we go ? what country is safe? I am Canadian but they are part of Nato, Im also Greek but I live in upstate NY … I have been searching the web for advice as to where is a safe place. I sold my property in Montreal because I felt Trudeau was insane and now I’m thinking did I screw up … I have like 4 properties here in the USA and a couple in Greece what should I do? should I be looking for a Bunker? o a place south of the equator? I’m truly scared to death … please send me a non-vague response I’m going out of my mind. will the USA ever be a good place again?


This illustration shows the radius of a 100-megatonne nuclear bomb dropped on New York City. Nuclear War will not destroy the planet. Look at Japan. Both Hiroshima and Nagasaki have proven that the “science” claimed that those cities would be uninhabitable for a thousand years after a nuclear war was wrong. Their populations doubled in 20 years after being nuked? Hiroshima now has 9 times its 1945 population.

The GOOD NEWS is you can then just nuke your opponent and actually save the planet is their twisted view of nuclear war. Without electricity, your opponent could not even make a phone call to launch a response. But if we look at Chornobyl, the nuclear disaster restored the region, which became a sanctuary for animals void of humans, in Ukraine.

Bikini Atoll 70 years after nuclear tests is thriving. On July 24, 1946, Baker Test shrouded its formidable height over the U.S. Navy’s test fleet. The United States dropped 23 nuclear bombs on the island, including a device in 1954 that was 1,100 times larger than the Hiroshima atom bomb. Now a team of scientists from Stanford University has been stunned. They discovered an abundance of marine life apparently thriving in the crater of Bikini Atoll, which was declared a nuclear wasteland after the bombings.

Strangely enough, the same has been found at Chernobyl in Ukraine. It is starting to emerge that even setting off every nuclear bomb will not destroy the planet or turn Earth into space rocks. We can alter our environment by doing so and ridding the planet of humanity as the dominant species, but Earth will heal itself and life will adapt exactly as scientists have discovered in Ukraine at the site of Chernobyl. Wildlife has thrived because it sent humans running.

This new evidence emerging from Chernobyl and Bikini Atoll is demonstrating that we just may not be as smart as we think we are no less all-powerful. Obviously, those pushing for World War III, see themselves as far smarter than we are. They are really trying to save the planet from us – or that’s what they are whispering in the dark bowel of government. Exterminate humanity and we can save the bugs and crickets from becoming our next food source.

Interestingly, the US has been buying medicine for radiation poisoning. They know what they are doing and could care less how many civilians are wiped out. Their view – the population needs to be reduced anyhow. Nevertheless, those handed Amgen’s Radiation Medicine will be supporters of the Administration no doubt. However, you can ask your doctor for a prescription, if he’s not WOK perhaps. Amgen’s sales of Nplate have scored 66%.

The US Department of Health and Human Services downplayed the severity of the risk of Nuclear War and said that this is part of its “long-standing, ongoing efforts by the Administration for Strategic Preparedness and Response to better prepare the U.S. for the potential health impacts of a wide range of threats to national security.” The Biden Administration has been purchasing a drug called Nplate that was approved by the FDA in 2021 to treat radiation syndrome. “Nplate is indicated to increase survival in adults and in pediatric patients (including term neonates) acutely exposed to myelosuppressive doses of radiation,” the company notes. Although not a worthy source, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said that Acute Radiation Syndrome (ARS) occurs in four stages.

The four stages of ARS are:

    • Prodromal stage (N-V-D stage): The classic symptoms for this stage are nausea, vomiting, as well as anorexia, and possibly diarrhea (depending on dose), which occur from minutes to days following exposure. The symptoms may last (episodically) for minutes up to several days.
    • Latent stage: In this stage, the patient looks and feels generally healthy for a few hours or even up to a few weeks.
    • Manifest illness stage: In this stage the symptoms depend on the specific syndrome and last from hours up to several months.
    • Recovery or death: Most patients who do not recover will die within several months of exposure. The recovery process lasts from several weeks up to two years.

It is peculiar that the drug was approved for radiation a year prior to the war breaking out in Ukraine. The Neocons have seized control of the Biden Administration and they have been behind the Ukrainian Civil War since 2014 when Kyiv launched the attack on the Donbas calling it their Anti-Terrorist Operation. John McCain met with the openly declared Ukrainian Nazis. The Ukrainian people are fools. They are blinded by the propaganda against Russia where they have never distinguished what Stalin did to Ukraine when he most likely poisoned Lenin and seized control of Russia when he was not even Russian but a Georgian.

The drug has never been tested on humans, and the results are not guaranteed. They certainly were not testing monkeys with a radiation dosage even close to that of a nuclear weapon. Of course, this was another NIAID-funded research project like the claimed testing of mRNA drugs and COVID vaccines before the pandemic began as well. Yet now they want to claim it was leaked by the Chinese lab to blame them? Did they leak it in China in the first place?

“In the study, 80 monkeys exposed to a life-threatening dose of radiation were randomly assigned to receive a single injection of either romiplostim or placebo one day after radiation exposure. All animals were given standard supportive care, including fluids, anti-ulcer medication, anti-nausea medication, pain medication, and antibiotics. After 60 days, 29 of 40 monkeys in the romiplostim group had survived compared to 13 of 40 in the placebo group.”


War is coming and this “WOK” Biden Administration is so incompetent they think they have the power to intimidate the entire world and they will bend the knee before them. Nobody seems to even bother to raise the question – what if this turns nuclear? Yet they have been buying the radiation drug so maybe they are lying about that as well. The sheer stupidity of how the Biden Administration is trying to intimidate the entire world can only be the result of total incompetence.

Biden says that Putin will not use nukes. Ukraine MUST remove Zelinkey from office and the United States MUST remove Biden from office. It is not Putin that is the risk. Biden has pissed off the Chinese and North Koreans as well not to mention Iran and you just may see Turkey and India side with Putin. This is a war to destroy Russia. All my sources say that, so I can’t imagine that Russian intelligence has come up with the same realization. To me, Russia may have no choice but to nuke the USA in a joint move with China to end the intimidation and arrogance.

Many people have been asking about where will be the safest place to be in the US given the prospect of a nuclear war. It is true that the UN Secretary-General António Guterres said that nuclear war is “back within the realm of possibility” thanks to the insanity of what has been taking place in the Biden Administration driven by the Neocons. We are indeed in serious trouble for not only does Biden lack any private experience but 62% of his entire officials have never worked in the real world and Biden is proud of having the most WOK Administration in history. Gender and Race are more important than qualification and experience. This has allowed the Neocons to seize control of US Foreign Policy.

A nuclear blast is NOT absolutely lethal if you are not at ground zero. You can survive a nuclear attack if you are NOT at ground zero – remember that. You must be at least a half mile away but I would lean more toward one mile away from the core of the explosion. Naturally, do not look and stare at the light from the flash because it will blind a person instantly! Also, remember to keep your mouth open to handle the pressure released from the initial blast. That is kind of like flying in an airplane and how your ears pop. This will be much worse.

You will have to move but you have ten to twenty minutes walking distance away from the blast site to seek shelter either below ground or above the 9th floor of a building that is still standing. This is to avoid the major effects of fallout from the mushroom cloud. Once more, keep your mouth, skin, and nose covered as much as possible while walking. When you get to any shelter, remove your clothes, and rinse them off with water, but that is when you should be holding your breath. You can seek medical care if possible. if you are under 1 mile from the blast. You should stay in the shelter for 12-24 hours after an attack to avoid the initial massive amount of exposure to radiation that follows after a nuclear attack. Only leave shelter once you know the direction to move. Do not wander around as if you are in a shopping mall.

If you are not near any of the strategic military targets or financial targets, you can create a shelter in your basement. I would recommend that the walls should be lined with lead.

They believe most states will not represent any threats to Kremlin or any other nation. Most nuclear forces from the USA are going to be prime targets. A Russian nuclear attack would likely focus on high-value targets in North Dakota or Montana. It is ironic that people have moved to Montana thinking this will be safe and out of the way. Sorry! That is not true. The main military targets will be:

1) Naval Base Kitsap: Washington State
2) Jim Creek Naval Radio Station: Washington State
3) Malmstrom AFB: Montana
4) Minot AFB: North Dakota
5) FE Warren AFB: Wyoming
6) Hill AFB: Utah
7) Kirkland AFB Albuquerque: New Mexico

Because of the constant attack on Russia blowing up the Nordstream Pipeline, it is clear that the Biden Administration has declared an economic proxy war against Russia. As a result, Russian President Vladimir Putin has now suggested that Russia may abandon its “no first use” military doctrine. Additional targets will be:

  • Fort Ritchie in Maryland
  • Camp David.
  • The pentagon.
  • US Central Command, MacDill Air Base in Tampa

Look, there is no bunker, however brilliantly assembled, that will survive a direct hit. Another military target could be US Central Command, which is headquartered at MacDill Air Base in Tampa. This is known as Centcom, and it is responsible for the operational theatre spanning parts of the Middle East, Central Asia, and North Africa. If they take out Tampa simply because it is a command center, that is fine with me. I will not move and just watch the mushroom cloud from the beach with my dog – Napoleon.

There will be six cities that have the greatest likelihood of being attacked based on their economic backbone for the economy:

The states/region to leave:

Montana, North Dakota, Wyoming, Utah, New Mexico, Washington State, New York
City region, Illinois Chicago Region, Texas in the Houston region, and California.

Ukraine intends to start world war III and take the entire world with them because of the absolute hatred of all Russians and they cannot see a future of peace. They used drones to attack Russian planes at the airport in Belarus. They are desperately trying to engulf the entire region in war to quench their thirst for hatred against Russians. What disturbs me greatly has been our models on war. Never in my wildest imagination did I ever expect the West to be the aggressor.

We can survive this. Humanity will not perish. We indeed have the worst possible people in Washington DC in my entire lifetime. I remember the Cuban Missile Crisis walking the streets with my friends talking about the destruction of the world. I was only 13 years old then. Just realize Nuclear War will not destroy the planet any more than man-made Climate Change. They always exaggerate everything.

We have Socrates to show us the timing.
