AFF/NUCLEAR: NUCLEAR WEAPON USE COULD ESCALATE TO GLOBAL NUCLEAR OBLITERATION
A SINGLE NUCLEAR WEAPON USED COULD LEAD TO A GLOBAL EXCHANGE OBLITERATING OUR ENTIRE WORLD

If a single nuclear weapon were accidentally launched, it could destroy a city but thats not all. With current launch-on-warning doctrines, an accidental launch could end up in a full-fledged nuclear war. This would mean the end of civilization and everything we value just like that. The men and women in charge of these weapons could make a mistake, computers or sensors could make a mistake and just like that our beautiful world could be obliterated. We cant let that happen.
THE NEXT NUCLEAR CONFLICT WILL BECOME WORLD WAR THREE

The recent nuclear tests by India and Pakistan have caused shock and alarm but should not have come as a surprise. There are genuine reasons for alarm. Two neighboring countries, which have been at loggerheads from the moment they gained independence and have fought several wars over a disputed territory, have demonstrated their capacity to manufacture nuclear weapons. Should there occur another military confrontation between them, there is a real danger that nuclear weapons will be used. In such an event, there is a distinct possibility of the involvement of the two nuclear powers in Asia Russia and China - perhaps even leading to World War III.
