Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The US and the Soviet Union each had the ability to nuke each other into oblivion seven times.
But they didn't.

In fact by comparison the destructive capacity of the cold war may even pale in comparison to the destructive capacity of not only nuclear but now genetic engineering, nanotech and any number of emerging technologies.
Yes, I think the humans are not ready for any of it.
