If just 300 of Russia’s bombs were set off in the United States somewhere between 75 and 100 million people would die in the first half hour. Most of the infrastructure needed to support the population would be instantly destroyed: communication systems, hospitals, transport, power plants, etc… Those not killed by the initial blast would die slowly in the coming months from radiation poisoning, starvation, exposure, and disease.
And this is just the tip of the iceberg.
Even a smaller nuclear conflict involving only 50 to 100 Hiroshima sized bombs would send 5 million tons of debris into the upper atmosphere causing global temperatures to plummet catastrophically, reducing rainfall worldwide for up to a decade, devastating agriculture, and triggering mass starvation on a global scale.

The elite don't care about the common person. Hell, if anything, they're looking for an excuse to get rid of a large percentage of the population, especially given the fact that a large segment is no longer buying into their bull#. Sanity? That word doesn't even mean the same thing to the elite that it means to the common person.

The deterrent to aggression by the superpowers and other military powers is why nuclear weapons are favored by countries. Also, it gives small countries a mouthpiece when they have previously been ignored.
Its my opinion that the threats being thrown around are purely diplomatic in nature.
Is the left stoking war or pointing fingers at trump???

You’re absolutely right. The elite and their puppets in the media are actually stoking the fire of a Russian/US conflict because their mad at Russia for saving Syria from their vicious assault to destabilize it and overthrow Assad.
The so called ” liberals” supposed peace lovers have gone mad and are now talking(Rachel Maddow for one) the elite deep state programming.
The “conservatives” have always been mad so there nothing has changed.
When the complete surrender to the deep state lunatics occurs, which may be the case, we have to step up and become the seekers of peace…

Just for the sake of going completely into conspiracy mode: 'I wonder what would happen if it turned out that nuclear weapons are a complete fabrication'? What if fast fission is not possible and only slow controlled fission with a moderator is possible?

One would think the leaders of the world would hasten to make peace within the circle of the nations that have these atrocious weapons.
One would think that the US and Russia, who together have over 15000 nuclear weapons( 8000 Russia, 7300 US), would have been working on a vital plan to drastically reduce these monstrous WMD’S.
One would think the US would be doing everything in its power to make peace with the North Korean crazy man who now has 10 to 14 nuclear weapons.
But no, all we hear is belligerent talk from the US to Russia, China and N Korea.
Understand that these countries have within their power literally the ability to destroy all life on this planet in a manner of minutes
Yet there is no UN attempt to bring this problem to heel or no attempt by the leaders of these nations to deal with this issue.
Where’s the sanity?
