I think the idea of civil defense, that is, protecting the civilian population, is a fine idea.
The recent move by the USA to stockpile 300 million modern smallpox vaccines is a good
start even if a bit late. Of course the old civil defense concept of building bomb shelters
for everybody is crazy in a world where the enemy has 50 thousand or more H bombs.
