Peace through practical, proved civil defence for credible war deterrence
  • Credible nuclear deterrence of invasions and conventional wars reduce the risk of large nuclear wars occurring through escalation of conventional wars. Contrary to irrational, pseudo-scientific propaganda, the number of nuclear weapons is smaller than the millions of conventional weapons used in large wars and the correct scaling shows that the overall effects are similar, not massively different as often claimed for political propaganda by enemies of peace. Furthermore, the greater time delay of effects from nuclear weapons over the damaged area increases the efficiency of cheap civil defence countermeasures, as compared to conventional weapons. In conclusion, credible nuclear deterrence of conventional war offers a beautiful opportunity to create a peaceful world, free from fear peddling, ranting dictators. The only oppositions you will meet will come from authoritarian obsessed fear peddling myth makers. If they can't tell the truth and face the facts, why listen to them? Please see our post on the need to deter not only direct threats from nuclear attacks but also conventional wars and invasions that can escalate into nuclear wars (as proved by the use of nuclear weapons in WWII, for example, after they were developed during the war itself and did not trigger or provoke the war), linked here, here, here, and here, here, here, and the true scaling law equivalence between a few thousand nuclear weapons and the several million tons of small conventional weapons in a non-nuclear world war as proved by our post summarising key points in Herman Kahn's much-abused call for credible deterrence, On Thermonuclear War, linked here. Peace comes through tested, proved and practical declassified countermeasures against the effects of nuclear weapons, chemical weapons and conventional weapons. Credible deterrence to end invasions and wars comes through simple, effective protection against invasions like low yield tactical weapons and walls, and civil defence against collateral damage. Peace comes through discussions of the facts as opposed to inaccurate, misleading lies of the "disarm or be annihilated" political dogma variety, which are designed to exploit fear to close down criticisms of errors in mainstream orthodoxy. In particular, please see the post linked here on EMP results from an actual Russian 300 kt test at 290 km altitude over unwarned civilian infrastructure in Kazakhstan on 22 October 1962, which caused no injuries or deaths whatsoever (contrary to all of Jeremy Corbyn and CND style lying propaganda that any use of nuclear weapons on civilians would automatically kill millions), but shut down the communications and power supply lines! This is not secret, but does not make newspaper headlines to debunk CND style dogmas on the alleged incredibility of nuclear deterrence.

    Christmas 2016 Civil Defence Compendium: world peace through credible defence and credible deterrence of wars, terrorist invasions, and tanks

    Peace through practical, proved civil defence and credible war deterrence, plus walls bring people together by stopping divisive terrorists

    A lack of peace in Syria and Ukraine for Christmas, yet again? Practical, helpful methods of low cost but proved civil defence mass evacuation, billeting, emergency feeding, and shelter. All proved in WWII against conventional explosives and chemicals, which worked well in the field, unlike failed utopian drivel from the warmongering "peace research" non-United Nations lawyers.

    Emergency Feeding Civil Defence Handbook No 8 1960 reprinted 1961 (focuses on IMPROVISED equipment and techniques applicable to devastated areas, as in Syria and Yemen today).

    A pot pouri compendium of historic and declassified reports proving the effectiveness of civil defence sheltering and evacuation techniques against conventional, chemical and nuclear war.  This specifically emphasises evacuation experiences and lessons from Operation Pied Piper (evacuation from British cities and billeting in rural areas, prior to WWII air raids), which is relevant to the bombing in Syria now.

    Peace through practical, proved civil defence and credible war deterrence, plus walls bring people together by stopping divisive terrorists. Declassified countermeasures against the effects of nuclear weapons, chemical weapons and conventional weapons.  Credible deterrence through simple, effective protection against invasions and collateral damage.  Discussions of the facts as opposed to inaccurate, misleading lies of the "disarm or be annihilated" political dogma variety.  Hiroshima and Nagasaki anti-nuclear propaganda debunked by the hard facts.  Walls not wars.  Walls bring people together by stopping divisive terrorists.

    Headline in the Morning Star, 13 December 2016: "Final Liberation of Aleppo is in sight" (amid the carnage from the bombs and shells of Assad and Putin).  The Morning Star was the communist newspaper which published the classic Cold War propaganda headline, "Man of Peace Dies", upon the death of the dictator and KGB chief Andropov. What's curious is that similar appeasement of dictators, rather than focus on well proved civil defence, was also the response of mainstream newspapers to the 30 September 1938 Sudetenland crisis, when Hitler coerced Britain and France into agreeing to a Nazi invasion of the industrialised resources of Czechosolvakia (the Sudetenland region, bordering Germany) rather than have a war.  All the time, Britain and France were knowingly rearming more slowly than Germany (thus losing time, not gaining it), in the fear of provoking war.  If you look at the 30 September 1938 Daily Express, you find the editorial driven by fear, wishful thinking, and appeasement.  But there is some reporting of defence and civil defence work (evacuation of kids, housewives helping to dig trenches).  Again, as we have repeatedly argued, the most important aspect of civil defence (as with medicine) is the prevention of disaster, not merely mopping up the carnage in an undefended target city.  Civil defence makes deterrence of carnage more credible, and therefore more effective in ending war, or, better still, preventing wars and invasions in the first place.

    "Nor should we forget the (non-elected) Vice-Presidents of the CND, 11 in all, including Labour Leftists Lord (Hugh) Jenkins, Ron Todd (Transport & General Workers Union), Frank Allaun (of the pro-Soviet British Peace Assembly, and Labour Action for Peace), and Jo Richardson; ex-Communist Party members E. P. Thompson and Phil Bolsover; and, last but not least, Dr John Cox who was elected to the Executive Committee of the British Communist Party at its 38th Congress in November 1983. This was, of course, the memorable assembly when CND General Secretary Bruce Kent referred to the Communists as "partners in the cause for peace in this world", and praised the nauseatingly pro-Moscow paper, the Morning Star, for its "steady, honest and generous coverage of the whole disarmament case". (A measure of its honesty, and of its conception of 'Peace', can be gauged from its banner headline on the death of Andropov, just three months later. "MAN OF PEACE DIES", it said of the butcher of the Hungarians, the architect of Soviet psychiatric abuse of dissidents, and the ruthless former head of the KGB.)" - Julian Lewis.

    President Elect Trump's walls not wars idea is very well founded.  This is a photo (taken by yours truly) of one of the ancient Roman Walls still surviving here in Colchester, after nearly 2000 years.  The original Roman Walls here in Colchester were constructed for protection only after the original town (then the capital of England) was burned down by rebel tribes headed by Queen Boudicca, whose daughters had been raped by the Romans.  Walls with defended gate houses slow down attackers and prevent easy terrorism style raids.  Like the effectiveness of a seatbelt in a car against the most likely disasters (but not all possibilities), or the locked door on a building keeping out most intruders (but not one using a truck for a ram raid), a wall won't necessarily prevent or negate all kinds of air attacks and sieges, but it does make it much harder for the attacker.  Most ancient cities in the Middle East and in Europe had walls.  Peace wall were also constructed to defend England from Scotland (Hadrian's wall), to safeguard Catholics and Protestants during the terrorism in Northern Ireland, and to defend the whole of China!  The great scandal for Syria and Ukraine is the lack of defence walls, a lack which has resulted in disaster and civil war.
