Nuclear bombs are built with heavy and highly unstable isotopes of radioactive elements, because it’s meant to release huge amounts of energy, also unleashing destruction on a site of choice. For instance, the U.S. bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan back in August 1945 killed hundreds of thousands of civilians.

Back then, they used nuclear fission bombs, fueled with uranium and plutonium, which attracted an almost instantaneous chain reaction of an atom splitting, which released the equivalent energy of 15,000 or 21,000 tons of TNT.

But now, modern nuclear weapons are 30 times stronger than those used on Japan. It seems that each world power has around 5,000 and 6,000 nuclear weapons, while China has only 350, France 290, the U.K. has 225, and India and Pakistan each have 160.

  1. We can find old underground bomb shelters that were constructed during the second world war (WWII). Some old hospitals that I know have underground shelters.

  2. A deterrent could be the threat that we will come for you with conventional methods after you have spent your nukes——– I, Grampa

  3. We need to watch nursing homes because dems have been going in and harvesting votes from people who have been drooling on themselves for years. Totally unable to make a decision.
