nuclear disaster

How serious do you feel the threat of a nuclear disaster might be here in our own country?

I feel that having a nuclear attack on our country would be very serious being that The United States is a very popular country and a lot of peoples lives would be destroyed.

Do you think the media or government might be downplaying the seriousness of the situation in order to avoid causing panic?

I totally agree because if the world or our own country realized and knew exactly what the government knows about things that are confidential, then we would all go into a panic. So therefore, I do believe the media or government is downplaying the seriousness of the situation to avoid causing panic only to help their country out as a whole.

Do these types of situations make you more uneasy considering the recent nuclear fallout in Japan?

Yes, because we would not know what to expect.

Discuss your own position and thoughts, and why you feel the way you do.

I feel that we should be more aware so we will know how to handle our families lives and be prepared in case of an attack.
