Like Tic-Tac-Toe, never a winner, just everyone losing. I don't think we'll ever be dumb enough to launch a full scale nuke attack, but I wouldn't rule out tactical strikes on main manufacturing and military targets (such as capitals, etc.). Although it only takes one side to start wasting civilians wholesale, to make it all go south.

Great responses on this thread! Many of them I didn't even think of...
I definitely agree that hopefully nation leaders do realize that using nukes makes it absolutely a no win situation for everyone.
Every time I listen to Anti-Flag's Depleted Uranium I get super angry. I do, I spit flames. Probably why I listen to it only every once in awhile. We know the damage that DU does to a country so why do we still use it?! It is crazy.
I wonder what will happen first... WWIII or The Culling.

Ironically, I just did a college research paper on Nuclear War : the belligerents, the possibilities, etc. I honestly think very soon someone will strike with a nuclear weapon and our amazingly beautiful planet will go down the toilet.... quite sad.
