Nuclear Bombs in retaliation to Cyber Attacks


What if nations use Nuclear Bombs in retaliation for biological wars and digital attacks launched by Adversaries?

It can devastate and could trigger a 3rd world war which could have the potential to put the entire humanity to extinct… isn’t it?

Yes, what you are reading is absolutely true and Britain is all set to follow the same if its adversaries indulge in chemical, biological or cyber warfare.

In next two years, the nation led by Boris Johnson is planning to increase its nuclear weapons stock by 40% as it intends to use such warfare if any nation threatens it with chemical, digital, or biological attacks (such as the one Corona virus developed in and by China).

Hinting about the same to Integrated Review, the policy also warns UK’s enemies that it has wholesome right to defend its populace and national integrity by the use of nuclear weapons.

The warning was issued in the wake of a media speculated threat that was doing rounds from the past few days. In the threat, it has been clearly specified that a terrorist organization known for its bloodshed across the globe was intending to launch a CBRN- Chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear attack by 2030.

However, the good news is that the stockpiling ambition of UK might be put on a backburner as it breaches several rules that were agreed in the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty aiming for peace in the world.

And as the nation is committed to maintain a minimum destructive power, use of nuclear weapons might not act as a viable solution to the evolving security environment.
