      I thought defcon was a readiness status.. it's just preparing forces to be more ready and in certain positions because it takes time to mobilize forces. I'm not sure it means there is war happening. Just means we need people in position in case something happens..

          This game feels really similar to first strike:final hour

                Try Superpower 2, that game is in-depth. I heard when nukes are involved, all Hell literally breaks loose.

                            What's more terrifying, is that you're saying pessimistically that nuclear wars are going to happen.

                            I'll make a lifetime bet, and I'm confident that it won't happen, but... Something much more horrifying will happen

                                    Me 3 years ago: How come this game is scary? it's just a map and nukes and some millions dead.

                                    Now: Whelp, imagine your computer was accidentally chosen to be the computer to release all Nukes and you decide to play DEFCON, and unknowingly, you killed Billions of people with just some clicking and some button pressing.. making you the Number 1 Genocidal Being ever existed, but wait, there's no record anymore, also keywords: *ever existed*

                                        Oh great. Another Vox like channel telling the same Bullshit story with the same "Facts" as everyone else. The same people who think Nuclear Detonation and Nuclear Meltdowns are the same thing. Can someone tell the real story of how it actually would happen for once?

                                            if i was ever the president of a country id completely denuclearize it, and mostly demilitarize it except for a regular defensive force, the modern world doesnt need war, it should be a thing of the past in the first world

                                                                                    i've been a fool to myself.
                                                                                    i thought that i could live for no one else,
                                                                                    but now, through all the hurt and pain,
                                                                                    it's time for me to respect.
                                                                                    the ones you love mean more than anything.
                                                                                    So with sadness in my heart,
                                                                                    i feel the best thing i could do,
                                                                                    is end it all, and leave forever.
                                                                                    what's done is done, it feels so bad,
                                                                                    what once was happy now is sad.
                                                                                    i'll never love again.
                                                                                    my world is ending.
                                                                                    [ain] i wish that i could turn back time,
                                                                                    'cause now the guilt is all mine.
                                                                                    can't live without the trust from those you love.
                                                                                    i know we can't forget the past,
                                                                                    you can't forget love and pride.
                                                                                    because of that, it's killing me inside.
                                                                                    It all returns to nothing,

                                                                                    In my heart of hearts,
