The End, Nuclear War



"I know not with what weapons World
War III will be fought, but World
War IV will be fought with sticks
and stones."
- Albert Einstein

"The idea of all-out
nuclear war is unsettling."
- Walter Goodman



Do you believe earth will eventually
experience WORLDWIDE NUCLEAR WAR? Why?
If so, approximately when do you
believe it will happen?

Is it possible there will be
survivors after World War III?!

I think another world war is unlikely. If it happened, both sides would have the bomb. The side that was losing would resort to using it. The only realistic way of using it would be to dump everything first in order to take out their nukes and have the best chance of recovery. This would most likely result in MAD. That super powers directly warring against each other for complete victory would result in both of their deaths, plus that there is little to gain at this point economically, I doubt it will happen, at least in the near future.

Even if it did, there would be survivors. Civilization as we know it might collapse, but people would survive.

Brush wars. Limited border conflicts between superpowers. Use of nukes by smaller countries. Possible terrorism with nukes. These are all possiblities.

survive the horror of it all
Hatred in this world continues to grow non stop, especially towards the U.S., so I do believe it will happen someday in the far future.

As impossible as it seems that anyone would survive the horror of it all, I do believe there will be survivors, and the reason I believe this is because I believe what the Bible says in the Book of Revelations.

I think it really depends on how confident the people in charge are of their "way" surviving...

But any survivors would be living in a poisonous and terrifying environment...

hit them
If it ever happens, I hope to be right next to the blast. I read somewhere that those are the ones that never will know what hit them!

In 1967 I went to Peace Memorial Park in Hiroshima with my school. (We were in Yokohama for 3 years while my dad was in Vietnam). Any one who thinks that nuclear war is an answer to problems or even a viable threat to level towards another country, needs to go to Hiroshima. They will never think that again.

Peace Memorial
I tried enter the Peace Memorial Park link, but was unsuccessful.

I vaguely recall a Hiroshima movie I watched when I was a little girl. It showed how the people who survived started losing their hair and eventually dying. How I wish I could remember the name of that movie so I can watch it again. I remember it scaring me to death

How lucky you are to have had the opportunity of visiting the Peace Memorial! I only hope those who are running the world have visited it and seen what you saw!

deadly little red buttons
I hope you're right, but I don't trust the existence of so many deadly little red buttons in the hands of those running our world.

Too many Prophecies in the Book of Revelation have come to pass. I believe this too will someday happen.

Yes, it's quite possible...
I have happier things to imagine, so I won't go too far in speculation of possibilities...

We've gone from two sides to many possible players, and as a world community we really haven't even discussed the issues and possible solutions in a real way.

IMO we need to cut down stockpiles dramatically (Clinton worked out significant cutbacks) as well as to continue to work with nuclear nations to assure that nuclear materials are completely secure.

I can't even imagine what the surviors would have to deal with, but a few percent of the world population might survive to rebuild a society from scratch over several thousand years.

Re: Yes, it's quite possible...
How can we as a world community discuss possible solutions? It was almost impossible when there were only two sides, and they couldn't see eye to eye even with the minutest issues? I feel its impossible now, that it’s gone to, as you said, many possible players?

I can't imagine either, but if there should be survivors, I hope they learn from us, and do things differently.

I have no idea when, but I do believe nuclear war will come to pass.

Interesting source material for the film.

  • Terminator 2
  • The Day After
  • Armageddon
  • Soviet propaganda film
  • Ballistic missile test films
  • Anti-ballistic missile test films.
  • Battlestar Galactica
  • Wargames
  • The Sum of All Fears


Oh, and at what cost are you willing to prevent World War Three? Would you be willing to live under Islamic Sharia Law? Would you be willing to live under conditions such as in Cuba, China, or North Korea?

Personally, I don't think a global nuclear war will happen. I think there will be a limited nuclear exchange at some point, most likely between Pakistan and India, but Iran and Israel is possible too. There are, of course, other possible options, such as Russia and former Soviet state or maybe Chechnya (This would be a nuclear terrorist attack by Chechnian separatist and a response by Russia). And, China/Taiwan, North Korea and Japan (which would involve a nuclear strike by the U.S on N.K.)

Islamic Sharia Law, Cuba, China, and N. Korea
The list is among my most favorite movies!

If it takes my living under Islamic Sharia Law, or under the conditions of living as those in Cuba, China, and N. Korea, I would gladly do so, if it would prevent a World War Nuclear War.

If those who are running our world don't start behaving, I honestly believe it will happen.

I am sure we will see a full scale nuclear war in our life time. The anti-christ and the beast are walking around somewhere. There is some real good evidence that shows the Jews can build their temple as the original temple isn't the dome or the rock site but in a park next to it. So I believe we will see the temple rebuilt, a world war and I believe it will all start with the fall of the United States as a world power.

No. I do think however that a single nuclear explosion could take place most anywhere, triggered by a terrorist or terrorist group or some crazy.

A friend of mine told me if it did happen he would just walk out into the streets and wait for the blast. Me i don't think it will happen by nuke. I would say cataclysm before anything like that. A pole shift or something like what happened in the day after tomorrow. People could survive for a short time depending on how bad it was but i think in the end unless people were going to live deep underground for a few thousand years i think the human race would pretty much be kaput.

by fire
I believe it will happen. I don't know it it will through nukes, or through Mother Nature, but when it this earth does come to its end, it will be by fire, and I also believe there will be survivors.

Pachamama (Mother Earth) can take only so much, and we sure have abused her non stop.

It is very possible that it will be Mother Nature that will do us in, only it won't be by ice, but by fire. If it should happen within our life time, I only hope that we'll know in advance so we can eat all the Chocolate Delight Pie in the world! :o)

I don't think we'll have a global nuclear war but we could have small short wars hopefully without nuclear weapons used and i'm guessing we'd be the ones using them to stop a very strong threat to the US.
People surviving a global nuclear war? no.no one would survive.
I actually think some sort of natural virus will kill most of the population and only few humans will survive.

I just can't imagine not having a world wide nuclear war, eventually. I'm not saying it will happen in our lifetime, or perhaps it will. Some countries are have them, and too many have goals of getting them.

I don't believe the world will someday come to an end by a virus, but by fire.

It would take one moment of insanity for someone to push that button, and we have quite a few insane people running the world.

I do believe it will eventually happen, and if it should be in my lifetime, I hope I'm among the first who will die without never having known what hit me.

YES
We will have more world wars, and when the side that is losing sees its cause is lost there will be a nuclear war. We have religious fanatics on all sides that dream of the end of times. They have nuclear bombs. They will someday use them unless human nature fails.

Re: YES
Destroying the world with fire is reserved for God. We can try but there will be human survivors. It's part of our Godly nature to overcome ridiculous odds. And also part of our cursed state why nuclear warfare, even if just a small skirmish or isolated terrorist act is quite possible. As we proceed even further through Revelations it seems more likely but there are no guarantees when it comes to humanity. And I agree regardless of his actual IQ that Bush lacks at least the charisma to be the Anti-Christ. Hate to break it to ya but the beast is already identified as the worldwide religious power with the such political clout that will implement the economic reform that makes it impossible to barter without receiving their 'mark'. It's not one individual like the Anti-Christ.
