I work for a large corporation supplying tech parts to numerous aircraft manu’s and the DOD. I will be quitting my job in just over a month. Then I can let the world know my identity. For now let me just say our entity will NOT survive the rollover. I for one am bailing on a six figure salary so I don’t have to rearrange deck chairs on a sinking ship. Another item involves senior DOD Members making private or OTR comments to me. Let’s just say they have purchased their generators and other worst case supplies. What you are hearing from all levels of the government is spin at best.

What countries will be affected first? Which ones will be the last?
Lets say country A and country B are enemies, and both have nuclear weapons.
If country B gets hit by the y2k and can’t fire weapons, and country A knows it has only x amount of time left to attack before they can’t fire, will they fire because they know it cant be stopped and/or responded to?.
If not, why wouldn’t they go ahead and fire?
I think they will.
And what if country B thinks that country A will take advantage of the situation too?
Will country B fire before times runs out?
I think they will.
Hmmm... I predict a Nuclear War on or around 12/31/99
