Weapons of mass destruction threaten devastating and indiscriminate long-term damage to large segments of the civilian population and environment.” Professor Ruth Wedgwood of John Hopkins University uses President Kennedy’s handling of the Cuban missile crisis as a precedent for President Bush’s action last spring. “The introduction of nuclear weapons into Cuba”, she writes, “reducing Soviet launch time to seven minutes, would have destroyed any adequate interval for the assessment of nuclear warnings,” thus justifying the United States in imposing a defensive quarantine.

In 2009, North Korea declared having developed a nuclear weapon in addition to possessing a small stockpile of simple nuclear weapons. That state, ignorant of who attacked, might claim that its intelligence agents had identified Libya as the culprit and take the opportunity to silence her by striking a con�ventional or nuclear blow.

Shortly after though arch-rivals Pakistan announced the same and the threat of a South Asian nuclear war loomed. Thus, given the prospect of improved diagnostics, there is an enormous potential for detecting yet more [fictitious] "excess" thyroid cancers.

Strategic Air Command reached their targets. There's no easy cure either - much of the equipment used on the electricity network still uses Windows XP, an obsolete operating system no longer being maintained, and these systems can't be updated because of potential safety risks. N2 (Non-Nuclear) mines in Neon Genesis Evangelion are an In-Universe example, although they have a much smaller radius of effect than actual nukes.
