Didn't South Africa surrender their nuclear weapons... which means if it is a natural progression it should end with not needing nukes at all in the end.
For the Ukraines in the east of the country Kiev is a terror group , " and so are ethnic tensions existing in other countries , and Nukes there also have a limiting effect on ethnic Genocide . An example of this is India / Pakistan tensions , Nukes there have arguably saved millions of lives .
Yeah, because there is only peace and harmony between India and Pakistan... Nukes did diddly squat in that case and most other cases... wars continued and nukes made no difference at all.
Using nukes is suicide because either the enemy or an ally of the enemy will use them against you if you use them against them... they solve nothing.
India and Pakistan couldn't use nukes when there were border conflicts... nukes don't prevent wars... they just limit the level those conflicts can escalate to before both sides have to back down to avoid the suicide that is nuclear war.
not if Houthi had them too , in fact I have been thinking for a while that they should get some , to stop millions dying from Bombs and sanctions . It would stop the war .
If the houthi had them the US would claim they were going to make backpack bombs and smuggle them in to the west and kill westerners so the west is obliged to use concentrated airpower to find and destroy their nuclear weapon stores... up to and including the use of nuclear weapons of their own.
It wouldn't create peace, it would be their end because suddenly they are a real threat to the west.
but the history of nukes is that everyone likes to live , than die . There is no chance of winning in a nuke war , the illusion of victory and survival through conventional war , is shattered . Humanity is freed from war .
Most Americans think they would win a war... any war... because they are American... the worlds last super power... they control international trade and all the international organisations that are worth anything.
Most Europeans think they just need to snap their fingers and Russia will collapse and Europe would be victorious... they are deluded.
In the case of India and Pakistan or Iran and Israel... I am sure there are plenty on both sides that would be happy to start a nuclear conflict just to destroy the other side without caring about the consequences for themselves.
For nukes to create real peace and stability they have to be used and kill us all... otherwise they are plan z... for when all the other plans fail.
More frightening for the west it is probably plan C or D.
if by " Humanity " , we mean nuclear powered countries , then yes . But for those without , there has been no survival !
By Humanity I mean everyone but those in charge of the west... thinking breathing caring human beings.
And we have survived... and for an athiest to pinch something from religion... the west is not well and is self diagnosing that Russia is to blame when it isn't so when it focuses on Russia it is not solving any of its actual problems, so they get worse... which means eventually the meek shall inherit the world...
Nukes produce their own dynamics , irrespective of political inclinations of ideology , they keep the peace and allow for human development . Hell ( Nuclear war ) , is an equal opportunity organisation ! What everyone will avoid . Humanity then can put effort into solving environmental and social problems . It may already be too late , but we have to try .
For Iran, which unlike many other countries in her position, has delivery means for nuclear warheads, having nuclear weapons would sound rather better than it actually will be.
Russia and China have nukes, but did that stop HATOs advance and encirclement.... did it stop the coloured revolutions that destroyed countries and lives just to further contain and limit Russia economically and politically.
Iran having nukes should stop extreme attacks to destroy Iran from the west, but they wont stop the assassinations and interference and the sanctions and the general shitfuckery the west loves playing around at.
Currently the problems with Russia mean there is a small opportunity where Iran might get to sell some gas to Europe... make them pay good money or tell them to go take a hike.
. Without French or British Nukes , these nations would probably not exist today .
Nothing to do with their nukes and more to do with ties and control over former colonies... or in the case of the French current colonies and dependencies...
Now , I leave the argument here , since it is about the resistance by LDPR against attacks . Now , they could could get a nuke , much better than 700,000 refugees . Ethnic cleansing !
Putin recognising their independent status would be nuke enough.
