(TheRedWire.com) – From the 1950s through the 1980s, many people were concerned nuclear war was a possibility between the United States and the former Soviet Union. Drills were regular occurrences in public schools, and former President Ronald Reagan sought to build a space defense program to ensure nuclear ballistic missiles couldn’t strike American soil. The two sides realistically saw atomic weapons capabilities as a deterrent at the time. Since then, nuclear capability has increased, and rogue countries such as Iran and North Korea are racing to create weapons of mass destruction.
I can't believe this even has to be said…

Over the last few years, tensions between Washington and Moscow grew to their lowest levels since the Cold War’s end. The US is also at odds with China over several issues. Fortunately, there seems to be one thing on which all sides agree. The US, China and Russia, joined by the United Kingdom and France, released a statement saying nations should avoid the spread of atomic arms and the potential for nuclear war.
The countries said their primary responsibility was to avoid war with one another and reduce the risk of nuclear attacks. The five world leaders added that nations should never fight a nuclear war because, ultimately, no one would win that kind of conflict. They stressed nuclear capabilities should only exist for defensive purposes, deterring aggression and preventing a war.
