(Since the 1950's, both the U.S. (United States) and Russia have had nuclear weapons. During this period, neither country has used its nuclear weapons in a war situation. The main reason is that each side knows if it used its bombs, their own country would be destroyed by the other side's nuclear bombs. This is called deterrence. Neither side can afford to attack the other with nuclear weapons. Let me read you some statements about this situation. For each, tell me if you agree or disagree.)...The danger is that if by some mistake or miscalculation either side fires its nuclear missiles, that could be the end of the world as we know it.
