As you may have noticed, we like to blow stuff up on this channel. So when the International Red Cross approached us to collaborate on a video about nuclear weapons, we were more than excited.
Until we did the research. It turned out we were a bit oblivious off the real impact of nuclear weapons in the real world, on a real city. And especially, how helpless even the most developed nations on earth would be if an attack occurred today.
So hopefully this video demonstrates how extremely non fun a real world nuclear attack would be, without being too gruesome. This collaboration was a blast (no pun intended) and we want to say a huge thank you to the International Red Cross!

      Vice made a video called "How to Buy Nukes on the Black Market". were Shane Smith goes to Bulgaria (a super capitalist country in south east europ) and talks to a guys selling them. mutual assured destruction is stopping goverments from dropping nuclear bombs on each others. what is stopping a school shooter from getting a really big weapon in Bulgaria? i have a hard time seeing how signing this, is making anything safer. Nice vidio tho :)

      You censor out what I say. I speak the truth. We fry out wasp nests because wasps sting our children in our schools. Japanese weren’t wasps. But wasps didn’t butcher over 30 million innocent women children babies. Japanese soldiers did. And they came from THAT nest in Hiroshima. Hiroshima was the headquarters of Japanese Southern Army. They implanted their military base amidst a city. The Japanese used their own civilians as human shields and cannon fodder. In August 1945, the Japanese still brutally enslaved almost all of Asia. We can’t let the enemy kill millions more people. Fry the nest and win the war. As simple as that. Japanese soldiers said killing my family was like killing insects. Americans returned the favor with equal disinterest when they incinerated their nests.

      You missed the real ultimate consequences... that city was surrounded by three nuclear power plants and each of them and all of their spent fuel pools are now in full meltdown sending up enormous clouds of radiation throughout the entire world...

    The Chinese have declared they will only use nukes if attacked with nukes first. Americans reserve the right (what right?) to use nukes first. From these declarations we can see America's obvious disregard for humanity and morality!

  • AcidBot66
    AcidBot66

    America is, by far, the greatest threat to life on this planet. Their willingness to use nuclear weapons on civilians demonstrate their disconnection with the human values of civilization.

  • AcidBot66
    AcidBot66

    But to be realistic dishonest Americans will never abandon America's main hegemonic instrument of geopolitical dominance and world exploitation.

  • AcidBot66
    AcidBot66

    Nuclear disarmament must start ASAP starting by nations who have demonstrated to have the hideous courage to drop nuclear weapons on perfectly innocent civilians who did nothing against them.

  • AcidBot66
    AcidBot66

    And to think that War Prone Americans did precisely this to perfectly innocent Japanese women and children not once but twice. The worse crime against the whole humanity human kind has ever witnessed.

    Kurzgesagt are a bunch of left-wing idiots with a fantasy world outlook. No, the weapons aren't the problem. North Korea, Iran, China, etc., having them is the problem. So if a moral nation gets rid of their nukes, the immoral nations will not.

    Yeah but nukes exist, and nobody is going to be the only one to give them up. You think any nation is voluntarily going to leave the big stick club knowing full well that they can’t force everyone else to do so? Do we have to conquer the world first to ensure compliance?....do we have to just nuke the usual suspects?

    Видео крайне тупое. Не указана мощность ядерного боеприпаса, способ его применения, но при этом описывается то, что происходит на определённом расстоянии от места подрыва. Описываются только два поражающих фактора световое излучение и ударная волна (косвенно упомянут ЭМИ), остальные поражающие факторы не описываются. Пренебрежительно говориться о том, что человеческая инфраструктура будет снесена, но на самом деле именно инфраструктура вносит максимальный вклад в уменьшения последствий применения ЯО (Что показала бомбандировка американцами Нагосаки). В общем очередная американская агитка. П.Сы. Ядерное оружие не аморально само по себе, это оружие сдерживания. Именно благодаря ему пока не случилось войн, равных ПМВ и ВМВ.

    There is an argument that says that the world has not seen a major war because of mutually assured destruction through nukes. However, nukes have no other purpose than to kill innocent people and have no place in society. More people would be killed in a blink of an eye with a nuke, than a nation on nation conflict. Sure, Nations will probably never use a nuke on a city full of innocence, but what if it falls into the wrong hands?

    The exact number of people killed by the atomic bomb in Hiroshima is still unknown. However, it is estimated that approximately 140,000 people died by the end of December 1945, when the acute damage caused by radiation had subsided. At 1.2 kilometers from the epicenter, almost 50% of people died that day. It is estimated that 80 ~ 100% of the people living near the epicenter died. In addition, even among those who escaped immediate or immediate death, those who were exposed to radiation at close range and suffered more serious injuries had a higher mortality rate. Due to the atomic bombing, about 74000 people out of 240,000 people (estimate) in Nagasaki City at that time died, and about 36% of the buildings were completely or partially destroyed.
