Is the threat of nuclear war real?
Military experts are sure that today there are all prerequisites for the start of a nuclear war. One of the three allowed its real beginning.
The US withdrawal from the Medium and Shorter Range Treaty (INF Treaty) resumed discussions on the possibility of a nuclear world war. Fears are reasonable. Indeed, the INF Treaty is one of the main agreements on which global security rests. Along with the Treaties on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) and Strategic Offensive Arms (START).
The collapse of the world order
The INF Treaty expired on 2 August. Without this treaty, the United States will receive carte blanche to deploy offensive missiles in Europe and Southeast Asia. This is a direct threat to the security of Russia and China. Vladimir Putin warned Washington that Moscow would respond mirror-like to any development, production and deployment of missiles falling under the INF Treaty.
A couple of months ago, the Russian president warned European leaders that, after deploying US missiles in them, the Old World would automatically be in Russia's sight. The Chinese Foreign Ministry also reports that it will take "countermeasures" if the Americans install offensive missiles near its borders.
As world leaders exchange threats, ordinary citizens are seriously worried about the possibility of a nuclear war.
Background of nuclear war
A number of prerequisites indicate the likelihood of a nuclear war.
In Washington, Moscow and Beijing are considered the main threats to their security. India and Pakistan nearly launched a full-scale war over Kashmir in February. The Pentagon threatens to punish Iran every day for spreading influence in the Middle East. And Israel and Iran have been considering each other “number one enemies” for four decades.
There are four preconditions leading to nuclear war. The first of these is associated with a decrease in nuclear potential. During the Cold War, when the United States and the USSR had gigantic stocks of warheads, the war threatened an all-annihilating "nuclear winter." But with diminishing arsenals, such fears may disappear.
Three other reasons are related to the United States. Americans create small-sized nuclear bombs of low power. The leadership of the United States gave commanders the right to use WMD in local wars. And the fact that Washington left the INF Treaty.
There is an economic war between China and the United States. Washington withdrew from the INF Treaty and does not extend START-3. Collapse international agreements and world order. The nuclear club is expanding. If the United States and Russia have been part of it for 50 years, now Pakistan is there. Iran has a dirty bomb. Nuclear weapons are spreading.
The withdrawal from the INF Treaty gives the likelihood that a nuclear war will begin by chance, due to the false operation of missile defense systems. There is practically no time left to reassess the situation. The system worked even just for a flock of pigeons, and that’s it. It is necessary to answer, prepare to strike a nuclear strike. They did not warn about the launch of tactical missiles with conventional equipment during the exercises, carried out a mass launch. The missile defense system worked, so you need to give a retaliatory nuclear strike.
Such a war is a suicide, first of all, for the country that will be the first to launch a nuclear missile against any state possessing nuclear weapons. It will be world suicide.
nuclear war would lead not only to “nuclear funnels” and “nuclear ashes”, but also to environmental disaster.
This is a continental environmental disaster. These are sores that can never be cured. This is a mutation of the population. Washington is well aware of the consequences. It will seem paradoxical to you, but there will be no nuclear war as long as nuclear weapons exist.
