Well, it is still my opinion that mutually assured destruction saved a lot more lives than nuclear weapons have cost us, and ever will, but I can't deny the risk and the angst it can cause.

I guess MAD works "fine" when all the actors are rational, but can we really be sure that the people who matter in the nuclear-armed states (including those who weren't supposed to have them in the first place) are rational, and always will be?

Plus it pains me, as an engineer who has worked so hard on solving problems in devices, with the ultimate aim of making sure safety-critical systems in cars don't fail, that there are engineers out there like me, but who work on making sure their devices can cause as much destruction as possible…

Probably not! But I'm not sure there's much we can do about it, since no treaties will ever prevent such a rogue actor from arming themselves with a nuclear arsenal if they really want to. :confus:
