I've heard the term "nuclear holocaust" used before. I think the media made it up, and we all know what brainiacs the media are! They will do/say/print ANYTHING to turn a buck. The thing is, I almost can't hold them completely responsible. The public loves to hear/read sensationism. How else can "People" and "The National Star" be in such big circulation? If the general public would just get off their lazy ass and grow a brain, most of what is bad(America's education system is one of the worst in the world/political corruption/environmental rape) in the world would be solved. But, NOOOOOO, the media chooses to report superficial nonsense and the public eats it up!

I may or may not have made it to that point, I wasn't really paying attention. After about 20 minutes I decided to throw that piece of crap in the trash. After the genious of South Park, I was really expecting more.
Newsflash: Any country that has nuclear weapons has authority. Russia has the most next to us.
Actually Russia has more nukes than we do. Almost by a two to one margin. They good thing about the U.S. nukes is that we have multiple war head rockets. So do the Russians but theres are out dated compared to ours.
If we do start putting nukes into space, then we could have a problem with Russia selling their technology or materials on the black market. 34=sweetness is right, no country would want to nukes us because we would do the same thing back. Where he is wrong though is if we anger Russia and they give terrorist materials. How can you strike back against an enemy with no country?
If Russia gives terrorists missles and they end up using them on us, they would have to do that with another country's support.
The terrorist would not use the missles. They would use the guts of the missle. They would not have the tools to send the missle over here, thus they would have to find a way to set if off in the United States. No state would be needed for that. I am sure that they would love to do it and would not have a hard time finding people to do it.

Please enlighten me, but what in God's name is a Nuclear Holocaust? A holocaust would imply mass genocide intentionally carried out, yet if there's a nuclear war we're all screwed, no genocide. Or were you just throwing the word in there for sensationalism?
Its another term for nuclear winter. In the event of full scale nuclear war, if enough devices were detonated, the radioactive particles would kill most of the plant life, along with all the dust and ash blocking out the sun. Without the plants, and the deadly radiation, most life on Earth would die. Including people, more than likely. Not cockroaches though, they are immune to radiation.
