    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!

    There was a man (forgot his name) and he said that to detonate nukes the president would have to kill a person. That person would be with them all the time. Didn't happen because "how immoral!" Is it really tho?

    the treaty on the prohibition of nuclear weapons was not signed by most countries posessing nuclear weapons or most nations who are allied to those nations.The Netherlands actually was the only nation to vote against it.sadly the great powers are not willing to get rid of the worst technology humanity has ever created.

    If we all got rid of nukes that would leave us vulnerable to less ethical countries who would only need to save one

    If a nuclear bomb went off, there would be a perfect zone along the radius of the explosion where all microwave pizzas would be perfectly cooked

    Just for the record. If you demand that we get rid of nuclear weapons, the questions you should answer is: Are you fine with conventional wars then? Because without nuclear weapons, we will have large scale conventional wars again. The only reason why we had relative peace since 1945 is because everyone knows that if you wage an all out war against another nation that has nuclear weapons is that you will get blown away too. No nuclear weapon, no threat and conventional wars will get viable again, like a massive war between the US and China for example, which would already had been fought out if it werent for the nuclear threat.Banning nuclear weapons will not bring world peace. Having nuclear weapons will not guarantee world peace. Peace is when everyone has too much to loose if they resorts to violence. If one group sees that it can come out on top with more gain than loose, war will become an option again. Who wants that?

    Way too many passive aggressive political bullshit messages embedded within this supposedly "informational video." The British think they have all the answers.....with very little success to back that up.
