Ok, I got the idea for this thread from two areas. Iran and North Korea. You remember those countries. They two countries that act like 2 year olds, and that's an insult to 2 year olds everywhere.The other is the tv show Jericho.

Iran is not listed on here as they, according to the Gov't and UN, do not have one as of yet, but we all know they are feverishly trying to get one. If that happens someone is getting nuked.

I am going to list the countries who have nuclear weapons and how many at last count.


Map of nuclear weapons countries of the world.
NPT nuclear-weapon states (China, France, Russia, United Kingdom, United States)
Other states with nuclear weapons (India, Pakistan, North Korea)
Other states believed to have nuclear weapons (Israel)
NATO nuclear weapons sharing states (Belgium, Germany, Netherlands, Italy, Turkey)
States formerly possessing nuclear weapons (Belarus, Kazakhstan, Ukraine, South Africa)
CountryWarheads active/totalYear of first testCTBT status

The five nuclear-weapon states under the NPT
Country......................Warheads Active/Total​
United States..........2,150 / 8,000​

Russia....................1,800 / 10,000​

United Kingdom.............160 / 225​

France............................290 / 300​

China..............................n.a. / 240​

Non-NPT nuclear powers
India.........................n.a. / 80–100​

Pakistan.......................n.a. / 90–110​

North Korea.....................n.a. / <10​

Undeclared nuclear powers
Israel..........................n.a. / 80–200​



Large stockpile with global range (dark blue)
Smaller stockpile with global range (medium blue)
Small stockpile with regional range (pale blue)


Blue: Nuclear Weapons Free Zone by international treaty, including territories that belong to a Nuclear Weapons State that has agreed the territory is subject to a zone. (Do not add unilaterally declared national or subnational zones with no international treaty, until we have a thorough survey of these.)
Red: Nuclear weapons states and territories belonging to them that are not in any NWFZ
Orange: Nuclear sharing (US nuclear arsenal stationed there for host country use in wartime)
Gold: None of the above (but party to the Non Proliferation Treaty(NPT))

I personally do not feel like any of us will ever go through a nuclear war. That is NOT to say there won't be a small nuclear bomb explosion or several here in the US, or possibly in the UK blaming Iran. That will start WW3. North Korea is no threat to anyone IMHO except maybe Japan or SK. NK is all talk.

Yeah pretty much.... unless....... you can make it to the south pole real quick.
Go south young man. Winds circumnavigate the globe east to west...not north to south.
But realistically to think it will never happen is ludicrous to me. I know we have all of them secured and can trust all owners to secure theirs. Have you ever seen Cinderella's castle....that's next on the tour.

The issue is not just the bombs but the result of using the bombs, secondary effects are much worse than the bombs themselves.

Of course I'd be willing to bet money no one is going to launch.

I'd bet $1000 there won't be nuclear explosions within the next 24 hours.

I'll give 100 to 1 odds. any takers,, $10 only..

Ill bet anyone $ 100000 dollers that they wont take a direct hit from a 18 megaton warhead in the next 100 years. Ill give 1000 to 1 odds. I'm sure there wont be any takers. As far as after effects, don't know what could be worse than the blast radius of a nuke. Maybe because you die slower.

Yeh, considering our popularity in countries like Pakistan, it'll never happen. They love.us. they hide our mortal enemies while on our payroll. But its not personal, 25000000 wouldn't get one of them to sell Ben layedown down the river. But they only have at least 100 nuclear weapons. And their largest blast they were able to achieve in testing was only 42 kilotons. But ....then there's the problem of delivery. I doubt they could find a volunteer since it would mean sure suicide. Surely there's no one in Pakistan who would offer his life to take a few of ours. If you believe this, my friend, you are very gullible. Its just a matter of when not if.

I'll take that bet. Is this inflation adjusted, and what currency is it in? If its USD deals off. Last thing I want to do is get stuck owing money if I win.

I don't see the US getting hit by one that is launched through the air. To many missile defense systems in place. Would be shot down over the ocean. The only way I see a nuclear blast in the US is if it is detonated on the ground after being snuck in on one of our many weak borders.

i want to take on thses bets, but what if it does happen? i'll never get the money,cus i might not survive, or some men in black will be coming to my house and asking how i knew it was gonna happen.

My point exactly, its easy to bet on a scenario that you can't loose. Kinda like insurance companies

imo its the oceans that are the threat, really only China and Russia have nuclear submarines.

None the less while US missile defence sounds really good, I've been following the missile tests etc.. and my confidence level went down dramatically after learning they don't have 100% kill ratio and there arn't very many interceptor missiles. The general consensus is that it would have to be a rogue attack because niether China nor Russia want to face the consequences of mutually assured destruction.

For limited scale it will definately be in proxy states, but we will still be hit with fallout it travels in the wind, and the US can't shoot it down.

Sneaking suitcase nukes into the US would not be difficult though by sea or by land. Those are low yeild though.

The US has a lot of active sensors, minute men, sea based sensors, ships at sea, radar etc.. however people still get into the US from land and sea illegally.

A lot of shipping aircraft and land based transport cargo etc.. also occurs from around the world, the US sea ports airports etc.. are not immune to a sneak attack from a non missile system. It would be very easy to hit the US with NBC weapons by any major state. However the repercussions of that would be tremendous.

Its just not likely at all because it isn't in anyones interests, because the US only attacks countries that can't defend themselves or at least cannot threaten the US. But it can happen. It just isn't very likely to happen within the next 24 hours.

Most countries use these same principles although there have been some instances where there were actual conflicts that could have went either way such as the Iran/Iraq war, the Israeli wars against the Arab states, WWII, Korea... but most wars since the 1980's have been one sided wars. The same rules are applied to nuclear war. You don't bomb no one that can bomb you.

The US is not immune from attack, but attack is not likely.

The US does not attack only countries that cannot defend themselves or cannot threaten the US. Japan and Germany two of the biggest power houses of their times got their dicks stomped in the dirt. If that were the case Mexico and Canada would be ours.
