Using nuclear weapons means killing tens of millions of (innocent) people, neither a moral or rational action, but no nation that has them will give these weapons up so Rosenbaum' s plea is largely in vain.

"Ron Rosenbaum is a highly respected writer (Explaining Hitler, The Shakespeare Wars), an astute journalist, a tireless researcher. Not a crackpot, sign-waving hysteric, but a writer you can trust. So when he says, “Pay attention!” that is just what you do.

The Second Nuclear Age, he tells us, is a multipolar one. That is, it is no longer a world defined by the “stability” of a balance of terror between two countries, as before, but has “degenerated into a chaotic state of multipolar nuclear powers with less control and less restraint and a greater chance of touching off a regional nuclear war that could escalate to a global scale.” Besides the United States and Russia, France, China, Britain, India, Pakistan, North Korea and an undeclared Israel now possess nuclear weapons, while Iran is actively seeking to do so."
"After reading his book, this much is clear: We are very close to achieving hell on earth. Can we handle this truth?"
