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 worldwide military industrial complex (MIC) has thousands upon thousands of nuclear weapons under the umbrella of various nations and various leaders of varying temperaments.
Nuclear bombs come in all sorts of sizes (yields) and form factors varying from massive hydrogen bombs to small tactical nukes. (“Tactical” nukes sound so cute and harmless, right?)
When World War 3 is upon us, it will be illogical to presume that nuclear weapons systems will not be used. It is also presumptuous to assume that others will not join in “if” a nuclear weapon were to be used.
The objective of War is to Win, and those involved will use the weapon systems at their disposal to do so. Therefore I am not so sure that World War 3 will be fought strictly conventionally while leaving nuclear weapons to gather dust.
Russia has 7,300 nuclear warheads
