whats the point of each country having nukes when they are too chicken to use it?

since everyone knows that using nukes is impossible because of the fallout, and the fact that other countries will hate them if they use it, why do countries still have them? i mean besides to scare people, whats the point of having nukes?

    Honestly , i was hoping they'd find some good use for them . For instance , Lets say they nuke Mars , and the chemicals would dissapate after something and possibly creating some type of atmosphere . Hey you never know !

    they eventually will get used -and its a sad day when it happens. originally the overriding factor of mutually assured destruction was the end all encompassing a stalemate-rest assured things will escelate sadly and they will get used!.
