Nuclear Meltdown in Japan and the Next World War

There was a video game that was popular several years ago called Red Alert. There were many variants of the game, but the basic plot or strategy was to obtain resources and build an army to defeat your enemy. What struck me about that game was when your opponent was able to build up enough resources to build a nuclear bomb, you would be warned that you had 5 minutes until it was fully operational. 

That was when your strategy had to change. If your opponent was allowed to use the bomb, it would be complete devastation resulting in your ultimate destruction. Consequently, you now had to destroy the nuclear platform of your opponent at all costs. You would sacrifice anything and everything in order to accomplish this. If you had tanks and airplanes, you would use them both and more in order to accomplish your goal of survival. Inevitably, most would be destroyed in the supreme sacrifice. However, sometimes the mission itself would be successful and your home base would be spared from nuclear annihilation. Many had to pay with their lives, but home was still there.

A similar strategy was used when your opponent built nuclear power plants around their home base. A well-guided flight of war planes could take the power plant out with a couple of strikes. The resulting explosion (meltdown) would decimate large swaths of land, buildings, equipment and people. One had to be careful in the placing of nuclear power plants. Disaster may be the result. 

In the real world prior to 1945, there were no nuclear power plants. There were no nuclear anything. Earthquakes, tornadoes, ocean surges, and hurricanes came and devastated much in their wake. Lives and countless property were lost. However it is different today. Many countries around the globe have nuclear power plants and even nuclear weapons facilities. What happens when one of these natural disasters strikes one of these sensitive areas? They need to be constantly maintained or the worst could happen. But how do your prepare for an earthquake or a tornado?

But let's take it a step further. What happens when one of these countries goes to war. War has happened for millennia. Warring sides target the most vulnerable areas. What could be more tempting than a nuclear power plant that would not only reduce their ability to produce weapons or even power, but would also send radio-active carnage all across the landscape of the enemy. Your opponent in the video game Red Alert knows it and so too do our enemies. If Japan can hardly keep their nuclear reactor from a meltdown, how could any country stop such a meltdown if those plants are targeted for destruction. 

Why did it come to this? In our video game example when your opponent begins producing their nuclear weapon, you do anything to take it out or it will be certain destruction for you and all those you cybernetically love. Why did not the United States take action when the Russians began their program? Or how about the Chinese, or the Indians or Pakistanis?  What about today with Iran?  The list goes on and on. And now we are set for probable nuclear devastation. War is inevitable and enemies will do what they must to survive. If you are not in the middle of it, you will certainly be effected by the fallout - literally.

(Rev 6:15-16) And the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains, {16} and said to the mountains and rocks, "Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb!"

(Rev 8:6-8) So the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound. {7} The first angel sounded: And hail and fire followed, mingled with blood, and they were thrown to the earth. And a third of the trees were burned up, and all green grass was burned up. {8} Then the second angel sounded: And something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea, and a third of the sea became blood.

(Zec 14:12) And this shall be the plague with which the LORD will strike all the people who fought against Jerusalem: Their flesh shall dissolve while they stand on their feet, Their eyes shall dissolve in their sockets, And their tongues shall dissolve in their mouths.
