As you may have noticed, we like to blow stuff up on this channel. So when the International Red Cross approached us to collaborate on a video about nuclear weapons, we were more than excited.
Until we did the research. It turned out we were a bit oblivious off the real impact of nuclear weapons in the real world, on a real city. And especially, how helpless even the most developed nations on earth would be if an attack occurred today.
So hopefully this video demonstrates how extremely non fun a real world nuclear attack would be, without being too gruesome. This collaboration was a blast (no pun intended) and we want to say a huge thank you to the International Red Cross!

Here is 2 reasons why getting rid of our nukes is bad. Number 1, not all countries will willingly cooperate and get rid of them. Certain countries would be more likely to lie about the dismantling of their nukes to get countries like the US to legitimately get rid of their nukes making them the only nuclear power and more dangerous than us. Outside of our nuclear deterant systems we wouldn't be able to fight back on the same scale and if Russia is the one to lie about it which is likely they would do we would be fucked. Satan 2 anyone? Number 2, if we ever had an imminent threat not from this planet which is looking increasingly possible as time goes on and we learn about the universe we would have no real defense if they were hostile towards us and likely more advanced than we could imagine. Nukes would be our only chance at winning but it would still be unlikely. Without them we are even more screwed.

Nuclear weapons do not only serve for war, they solve a number of other tasks, so you should not get rid of them al.

I feel like the major countries having nukes is kind of necessary, because if a war happens it's immediately game over, because everyone'll just start tossing nukes. Without them, America would probably be at a constant state of war in North Korea and it would be a whole conflict

im glad the US discovered this first because if someone else did it could have been way more catastrophic. Mutual assured destruction is the reason there most likely wont be a nuclear war meaning anyone who launches understands they are destroying their own country as well.

People need to realize that nuclear weapons are the reason we have had the most amount of peace in the history of this earth , the fact that they are that powerful keeps big countries from going full nazi mode again. Without nukes people would be going to wars like before because they wouldn’t be worried about 1 bomb destroying a whole city

@C3A1 id rather be a man in Japan fighting for my family then be compelety incinerated before having my goddamn breakfast, not being able to say goodbye, we couldn’t just drop normal bombs on their military bases and navel vessels? We had to kill innocent people, children, babies, pregnant women, fucking ended in cold blood just because the us government didnt want to be smart, most of the fucking people killed by the bombs were civilians anyway, why drop the nuke in the city, on a base or in the port. Nope, just imagine looking out your window and see a giant ball of fire hotter than the surface of the sun heading your way faster than a standard car back then, fucking stupid morons
C3A1 Пре 2 дана
now im not at all defending what they did, because they killed 226,000 when they nuked those cities. but think about what would have happened if they didnt drop those nukes. what likely would have happened was millions of casualties during an invasion of mainland japan. if they didnt drop those nukes and opted to invade instead, probably 90% of everyone living in japan would be murdered, along with hundreds of thousands of american soldiers. if you know nough of what happened during ww2 leading up to the events, then you'd know it was probably for the best. plus, hiroshima and nagasaki were oth major military bases, and nuking them destroyed most of japans weapons and ammunition, and etc. without it we'd be living in a world where instead of 75000000 died in ww2, 150000000 died.

Pode parecer contraditório mais hoje em dia oque garante a paz entre as potências mundiais são as armas nucleares, é só pensar, depois da criação delas nunca mais houve um guerra direita entre uma potência e outra, e isso se deve ao fato de que ambas saberem que se um dia entrarem em conflito, todos morreram devido ao uso das armas nucleares, tirar esse poder delas será tirar o medo da aniquilação multua e as guerras convencionais votaram a acontecer, e uma guerra convencional a longo prazo é tão destrutiva como uma arma nuclear e por isso esse video esta errado ao dizer que é necessário erradicar as armas nucleares, os líderes mundiais não são idiotas, ninguém quer morrer, ninguém quer usar uma arma nuclear e todos prezamos para que esse dia nunca chegue.
