Yes. The idea would be to strike first, hopefully eliminating the enemy's nuclear capability before they have a chance to fire back.

Of course everyone knows this, and that's why all countries have nukes on hair-trigger alerts.

Also, for all we know, there could be weapons far worse than nukes developed in secret and ready to be deployed.

Global devastation is the only possible result of WWIII.

Side: Yes. Pray WW3 never starts.

Yes!!! Pray that we never have to face that possibility. The annihilation of the human race is very much at stake with nukes all around the globe. We dare not let any conflict escalate to that sad end.

Side: Yes. Pray WW3 never starts.

Eh, scenario incoming.

In a show of highly troubling signs of North Korean invasion into South Korea the UN allows a collation of European and North American powers, +Japan (I know that they only have a military for self-defense) into war. China ( I am aware that they have the power to veto, oh well) gets hit by a misfired missile from the invasion, in an excuse for war China invades Japan and South Korea. The coalition after heavy loses pushes into China. China feeling threatened and at loss fires its nukes, which causes nuclear war.

The misfired missile thing is the only thing I think is unlikely.

In short the story states that after being pushed back into a compromising state a nation with nukes will fire them.

Side: Yes. Pray WW3 never starts.

Who says we'd be fighting against terrorism? If England were being attacked we'd give it all we've got, and the best we've got is neclear. Also, whoever started the WW3 must be evil or cold-hearted so if they use nuclear, nobody else would stand a chance if we didn't.

Side: Yes. Pray WW3 never starts.

I think so. The nuclear weapons are there and one of those hot-headed countries will push the launch button.

Side: Yes. Pray WW3 never starts.

Nuclear bombs might not work they are so old now. No one has tested them to verify they still work. They are unreliable.

Other more effective weapons will be used against populations. Distracting them with computers and television would be ideal.

They won't even know what hit them.

Side: No. We know what would happen.

It really all depends on who's fighting.

If we declare a World War right now (against Terrorism), Nuclear weapons will not be used because our main goal is to defeat the terrorist cells while rebuilding those countries.

If we fought Russia... holy shit.

Side: No. We know what would happen.

I completely agree with what you are saying, but a world war won't start if the US actually declares on terrorism. Tensions between Russia and the US are starting to cease, but if war breaks out...I can't say it better myself.

Side: Yes. Pray WW3 never starts.

Nuclear weapons have only ever been used twice, both times on a nation that didn't have them. So long as every nation fears nuclear retaliation, a preemptive nuclear strike is unlikely.

Side: No. We know what would happen.
