Well big countries do tend to be assholes on the world stage. It's easy to hate them from a purely political stand point, no need to take it personally. And no one died. There was nothing in the OP suggesting it had even affected humans, so I think you're just a little bit to eager to jump to moral conclusions.

No chance of that I'm afraid. The best we can hope for is that it'll be a while, and that we'll be ready by then.  

NASA do keep track on the overwhelming majority of potential treats though (or so they think), but there could be wild shots out there that we simply aren't aware of yet.

And if one of those they do know about somehow were on collision course, there would be nothing at the moment we could do to deflect it.

So basically, more money for science and technology or we'll be sorry

No one died - yet.
May I remind you that in those affected areas that happened to be populated a lot of window glass was shattered that yet thanksfully only injured people?
And also remind you that it is yet still fricking winter, and russia, and thus likely also cold? (also dark)
With that much window glass having to be replaced in such short time in those areas, shortages are likely to happen at a critical time,
when people could still die from exposure!
I would not yet conclude no terminal consequences of the asteroids.


Even though you are correct in your expression about big country behaviour,
asteroid hits being what big countries get in return for being big may soundlike a moral statement and offensive for someone looking for a reason to feel offended,
it's simply a matter of statistical odds though.
A larger landmass makes randomly distributed asteroids just more likely to hit said landmass rather than a smaller one.
Doesn't take a genious to see the obvious there, does it.

Such stuff could also easily happen in parts of russia where not in a hundred years anybody knew it ever happened due to lack of population if it wasn't for modern observation means as scientific ones.
(Hopefully not a misinterpretation of the event by the dead hand (of Russia), we'd all gonna notice effects of that.)
Hence no simpathy directly needed for mere fact of landmass being striken,
only for people being affected by the consequences by the meteroite shower.
So much for trying to explain my abstract thinking.

Solar Flares

Mankind may not be this lucky when the next big Solar Event occurs.
9/11 was an inside job.
No second plane.It was a bomb.Bomb in the other building.
You KNOW without a doubt the videos are fake,right ?!
Planes don't meld into steel and concrete buildings.They crash into them !!!!!!!
It's amazing how the building ate the plane !!!
Imagine those fragile wings cutting slots in massive steel columns !!!!!
How STUPID can they think the people are to believe that crap ??!!
