"Mr. President, I'm not saying we wouldn't get our hair mussed, but I do say no more than 10 to 20 million killed, tops! Uh, depending on the breaks."

Stanley Kubrick's Dr. Strangelove, or Princeton University?


- We're continuing our talk about the most important matters.

A lyrical digression - American scientists at Princeton University have estimated how many would die in a full-scale nuclear conflict between Russia and the US. The number is not comforting - almost 60 million people killed. If counting the wounded - 96 million people. Why would they conduct such research? We don't understand, but this footage is impressive, and the results are nightmarish.

“Nuclear warning shots. Russia launches a nuclear warning shot from a base near Kaliningrad. NATO retaliates with a single tactical nuclear air strike. The tactical plan. Russia sends 300 nuclear warheads via aircraft and short- and intermediate-range missiles to hit NATO bases. NATO responds with 180 nuclear warheads. The number of immediate casualties: 2.6 million over three hours. The counterforce plan.

With Europe destroyed, NATO launches a strategic strike of 600 warheads from US land and submarine-based missiles aimed at Russian nuclear forces. Russia launches a retaliatory strike. The number of immediate casualties: 3.4 million over 45 minutes.

Two admittedly regrettable, but nevertheless distinguishable, post-war environments...

The countervalue plan. Russia and NATO each target the other's 30 most populated cities, using 5-10 warheads on each city. The number of immediate casualties: 85.3 million over 45 minutes. The number of immediate casualties - 91.5 million, including 34.1 million fatalities and 57.4 million injuries.
