125 Million Dead + Global Starvation in Any Nuclear War

In-depth Report:

Today’s London Daily Telegraph (04/10) carries a report that any nuclear war between Pakistan and India could mean up to 125 million people would die and that the consequent fires would likely cause smoke to spread across the world blocking out sunlight and tipping everywhere into a decade of starvation.

It goes on to say that surface sunlight could fall by up to 35% thereby causing a reduction in global surface temperature by between 2 and 5 degrees C. The estimated recovery being more than 10 years.

However, the report says little or nothing about the extensive radioactive contamination of the land, animals and crops and the radiation sickness in the human population that would be the consequent inevitability for generations.

In this context, it is a well to appreciate that a nuclear war between Israel and its Muslim Arab neighbours, including Pakistan, is far more likely than a war with India.  The Israeli government being determined to attack Iran having first dealt with Hezbollah in Lebanon, it is accepted that it would be only a matter of time and multiple casualties in Tel Aviv from long-range missiles, that Israel would deploy its secret nuclear warheads against Iran and Iranian-backed troops. Once that comes about, it would only be a matter of probability before Pakistan would come to the aid of its Muslim brothers, with its own nuclear weapons of mass destruction.

Then there would be global devastation on a scale never before experienced in the annals of mankind. However, that horrific scenario can be avoided through a determination to reduce and eventually remove all nuclear weapons. Tragically, however, the world led by U.S. President Trump, is now proceeding to increase and proliferate its nuclear weapons of mass destruction.

Such is the historic tragedy of this American administration in Washington.
