Every leader and string puller in the world knows this, which is why nuclear weapons are more political tools than anything.
Thanks this is what I want to believe but for some reason I think Iran is crazy enough to do it and this worries me.
December 21, 2012 first nuke?
Even people that prepare to survive nuclear war may not live, in my mind Earth becomes Mars after such a war.
What is this possibility of it going nuclear?
I think Iran is just crazy enough to throw some nukes around but is Russia?
What happens when they launch nukes do we shoot them down midair?
If we do shoot them down do they blow up in the atmosphere?
If they blow up in the atmosphere doesn't it affect the whole world?(What country no matter how crazy they are would want that?)
Would we (US and or Allies if we have any) launch nukes?
Do you think once people see America getting nuked our "Allies" will turn on us?(Or help because they don't want to answer to China just yet?)
Is China still on Iran's side?(Read some article about them not wanting to get involved can't remember where.)
Iran does not have a single nuclear bomb, and even if they put one together it would be laughably feeble and primitive compared to what we have in our arsenals.
