Threads 1983 Film so spooky to real live events going on right now.
Threads (nuclear war) 1983 which I havent seen for so long, I actually watched last night, as I was watching this film, so many things that are going on right now, connects with this movie, I was gob smacked.

Its a very moving movie, real does make you think, not so much about the actual war, but the real after effects for years to come.

Every World Leader should watch this movie.

Connections to the Movie:

1) Russia and the US go to war over Iran
2) New laws brought in, which are still in place in the UK, where the government can take your home, take over supplies, Food etc, (Same kinda of rules brought in to the USA over the last few years)
3) conceration camps set up for the survivors (Fema Camps?)

If you have never seen this movie, watch it, its so close to what is happening now, it really is spooky and worrying!

I've seen that movie before, it has a spooky documentary feel surrounding it which makes it so realistic. I can also recommend watching "Testament". The full movie can be seen here: [link to www.youtube.com]

“Threads” is based on "Operation Square Leg" a British government wargame simulation of a full-scale nuclear war.

The scenario was based on a European War scenario researched by a British General, for Al Haig, who was NATO Commander 1974-1979.

Tom Clancy later used this same report as the basis for his book "Red Storm Rising".

I saw the "Day After" when I was ten, my dad worked on a Nike-Herc base and was a consultant to US Army at the time of the film. Saw threads when I was about nineteen.

They are both just horrific, and almost as depressing as "The Road". This is why all the Eugene's of the World need to quit jerkin' it to their Road Warrior fuck fantasies and help us figure out a way to avert such a catastrophe.

Face it, Eugene, you ain't gonna be the Humongous.

You're assuming TPTB do not have radiation cleanup technology.

Nuclear weapons were invented over 60 years ago, and I would bet they've been trying to invent cleanup devices ever since.

Anyone remember a TV program set in Sheffield about a nuclear bomb? I have been looking for it for years. Sticks in my mind because I live here and must of been about 12 years ago, maybe a bit more. Basically most people died but a group of people survived in a train tunnel. They were random people on the train and in the middle of the tunnel they all got put to sleep and woke up months later to a post apocalyptic Sheffield. Better than it sounds.

your opinion of what is 'obsolete' and what will be used or not used in battle is about as FUCKING STUPID as your statement that 'nothing in war happens as forecast'.

Thanks for mentioning this film, OP. I was just telling a friend about it as I unraveled some knitting to create something else! It had a huge impact on me in moving toward political isolationism and recognizing the evil intent of the American Empire to dominate world resources.

Re: Threads 1983 Film so spooky to real live events going on right now.
if you havent seen 'threads', it is way worse the 'the day after'

i watched it when it came out, i was 18 and it had an awful effect on me, depressed for a few weeks and struggled to sleep

i vowed never to watch it again, but figured that, seeing as im an adult now, i could watch it and be less affected. fortunately, my instincts were correct

still shocking now though, but back then we just werent exposed to such horrors on tv

it was RAW

 Quoting: RDprofessor

If you want to sell a nuclear war to the military, you tell them that you already have a working plasma-based ICBM-denial system (that is, a working anti-missile shield) in place. Security clearance will prevent any general not in the loop from finding out that such a system, although truly in existence, consists of only some half a dozen of units.

Even if combined to achieve maximum efficiency, those units will take out just a few dozen missiles. Hundreds of others will penetrate this, so-called, 'shield' and they will detonate over their targets.

But that is not the most important piece of information. What is important to know is that those units are there to protect certain, very specific, bases (joint bases, both physically and in terms of their occupants), of which there are no more than a dozen within the U.S. territory. The number of existing units is quite adequate for that purpose, and that purpose only, and that number will not be increased. Ever.

Taking those units out before the war starts, by any means available, should be the top priority. Alternatively, one may also consider using on them some of those nuclear bunker busters, just after ICBMs start flying all over the place. This move may be commonly known as Dieing Man's Gambit, but if preformed correctly, it can achieve more devastating effect that any other in existence.

Set your priorities correctly and you will have nothing to regret about later. The first and topmost priority should be maximum first strike damage to the enemy. One's own losses will be heavy regardless of what one does or doesn't do, and for that reason alone, paying any attention to them matters very little in the final analysis.

Maximum reduction of enemy's fighting capabilities is the first priority. Capturing and adapting the fighting hardware is the second.

If you succeed at reaching that second priority, someone will have to teach that weak AI inside those captured hardware how to move around like a hunter. Fighting will always be pilot's job.
