    Who says we can't?    If we have another major war between two nuclear armed nations then you can pretty well bet nukes will get used.   One way or another.

    A Nuclear World War would kill off the entire planet.  If the blast did not kill you the Radioactive fall out would.

    What's the point of having a war where everyone on earth dies?  In the Nuclear Age, we have carefully avoided fighting countries that had nuclear arms.  Instead we have 'proxy wars' in 3rd world nations, where we support one side and the USSR supported the other.

    Everyone pretty much agrees that the first nation to use nukes will lose.  If we use 1/10 of our nukes, and Russia and China do likewise, the fallout could well kill everyone on earth. That is, if anyone survives the 'nuclear winter'.
