The threat of widespread nuclear war is more significant than we might imagine, and widespread nuclear war means the death of humanity.

Whereas the explosive power of the bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki was unprecedented, so-called "mini-nukes" today are as much as six times more powerful. Additionally, the likelihood that they might be deployed is underestimated. Not only are these"tactical nuclear weapons" deemed to be "conventional", but, according to the "Nuclear Posture Review"[4] they can be used in a "First Strike, Pre-emptive" capacity, and war theater commanders -- three or four star generals -- can make the decision to deploy them.

A fake pretext could easily be engineered to precipitate cataclysmic nuclear war. Bear in mind that all of the post 911 wars were sold to gullible publics on foundations of lies.

The blunt reality is that nobody wins a nuclear war. The criminal cabal pushing us towards the unthinkable apparently believes otherwise, but their anti-Life agendas could not possibly align with the informed will of the vast majority of humanity.
