  1. Since one century we're messing up this planet environmentally, so why should we be able to prevent a nucl war, even if you consider crazy ppl on top of some countries, fanatic religions, etc.? This planet is a test run 🙂

  2. As much as I would love to see this type of agreement come to fruition, it's a fools dream to believe that even if such a ban came about that these governments wouldn't hold back a small percentage of warheads in secrecy for the "just in case" situation that may arise in the future. And that is a fact. I offer no solutions but only high light a very basic fact that must be understood. And wishing it away will not make it go away sadly enough

  3. The Scientists that created the Atom Bom saw the fruits of their work…The scientists of today working on these weapons will not see the fruits of their work…so will we human beings too. It will happen sooner than we think.
    God have mercy on us all…human beings don’t deserve to live.

  4. Nuclear catastrophe only exists in a Bethesda game, everybody who really wants nuclear war to happen have no common sense and an IQ low as the pancake mind of the people who believes the Earth is flat.

  5. Isaiah 54:16
    [16]Behold, I have created the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire, and that bringeth forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy.

    2 Peter 3:10-12
    [10]But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
    [11]Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,
    [12]Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?

  6. Western countries: Come, let's all get rid of our nukes and make the world a safer place.
    Russia/China: But if we get rid of OUR nukes and you don't get rid of YOURS, then aren't you going to be able to walk all over us?
    Western countries: We'll get rid of ours too, we promise.
    Russia/China: How would we know you wouldn't be hiding your nukes somewhere while pretending to have got rid of them?
    Western countries: We'll be true to our word. We can come together and sign a treaty.
    Russia/China: How often in history have you turned against your own word?…

  7. We can postpone nuclear war.
    However it will eventually happen.
    There's nothing we can do about it.
    M.A.D won't hold off nuclear annihilation forever.

    The Superpowers of the world don't make nuclear weapons just for fun.
    They make them, because they are psychopaths who are power crazy.
