That's why i doubt they would use them. Think about it: If Russia nukes another country, they will get nuked from the USA. All the countries know
that other countries have nuclear weapons too and there's a very big chance of a retaliation strike. I highly doubt the leaders of the countries say
'so what, i don't care'. After all, you can't rule a nuclear radiated country.
Nuclear weapons are more a 'usefull' item to threat other countries so they don't start a war or an invasion - that's for me one of the reason
that nothing happened during the cold war.
If anything i do believe that terrorists could smuggled and detonate some small nuclear bombs, though with all the safety going on in the world,
that's doubtful. After all: Despite so many warnings and threats from the muslim world nothing big has happened in the past couple of years.
World War 3 could very well be a Cyber War, with all the computers and seeing how everyone is depending on computers
(I hope it won't be like in that one Star Trek episode, where two planets simulate a big war on computers and then send people to die
