Coffee and That Cold War Past…

Talk about a video that drudges up very old memories. I enjoyed this video and then took a walk with the dog. As I walked I was thinking about what the reason would be that Russia Today would bring up the subject of America and bomb shelters? So I walked and did some thinking’s…

When I got home. I got my morning cup of coffee and sat down at the computer to look over what the world has been doing. I found that, what with South Korea instigating (also admitting that they did),  the North Koreans into a mini war! That in Russia’s eyes is more than a little serious. It is a situation that has set off alarm bells in the Kremlin…

Then I was struck with the remembrance of an article that took off like hotcakes and set records for viewers on Windows to Russia…

America and the world became infatuated with the article called:

Moscow Building 5000 Bomb Shelters by 2012…

So then it made sense after the millions of views that the Russia Today video got slammed with. That they would expound on the subject of bomb shelters. It seems that Russia is in a heated frenzy to build said “Bomb Shelters”. So now they ask America – Are You Ready!

Lets jump back to the video and think about the era that it was made from. That is the era that I have mentioned numerous times on Windows to Russia. The era of the Cold War, The Soviet Evil Empire, Death from the sky and on and on and on. The video has some great actual clips from many videos that they have put together and created a 4 minute video that will make you think. Sometimes I question Russia Today’s anti American motives but I never question their purpose and reasons for what they print…

Russia Today prints the facts of life as the Kremlin sees it and I use that to my advantage to help me understand what is happening in the whole world. Because what they put out has meaning from a very powerful source…

Let me touch upon an interesting subject. (At least for me it is interesting) The last few times that I have been in the metro of Moscow. I have seen that they are working on the huge nuclear blast doors that seal all entrances to the Metro. These are very thick steel and concrete doors that are hydraulically operated to close after everyone gets in to safety…

I have seen fresh grease on hinges. I have seen several doors being partially tested. I have seen the removal of cover plates that hide the old doors and the installation of movable cover-plates to allow the doors to operate again or better. Every station that I have seen, has these doors and from what I can tell they are being maintained…

So as the Russia Today article asks: Are Americans prepared for a nuclear strike?

You have to wonder is this a chess move from an enemy to cause issues in America or is this a sincere question of concern, that comes from an ally who may see a reason for protection anew on such a “Cold War” level again…
