Video: First Strike

In the midst of auto industry failure, the economic callapse, an energy crisis (that’s already fading from the public mind) and lingering fears of international terrorism, it can be easy to forget what our nightmares were like a generation ago. Below you will find a portion of a 1979 program that aired on San Francisco’s KRON called First Strike, which envisions a crippling nuclear strike on America.

While it’s true that some things never change, it is interesting to look at this and see how defense policy has evolved since then.

Hat tip: Defense Tech.
