S/O of the Meteorite Hitting Russia: Do you think they would tell us if we were about to be hit?
So by now hopefully everyone has seen the footage of the meteorite hitting Russia and the destruction it caused, as well as the people injured. Now, this was a fairly large object that was hurtling towards earth, and had to have been seen by someone at some point. My question is, IF earth really was about to be hit by a devastating asteroid or meteorite, do you think that the powers that be would actually tell us, or do you think they would do everything in their power to keep it quiet? Personally, I'm on the side of the latter. I don't think we'd ever know, the mass panic and chaos that it would cause would be more than any country's military or civilian police could contain. The stock market would crash, society would instantly disrupt.
What do you all think? Do you trust the world governments to warn us if the end is nigh?
