Nuclear specialists look at a range of variables, including the country’s capacity to produce centrifuges needed to enrich uranium, and how much of the end product would likely go into each bomb. A CIA-directed conspiracy had re-installed this shah in 1953, deposing an elected government. An example of a long-lived radioactive material is strontium-90. In a thirty-two-month period, China successfully exploded its first atomic bomb (October 16, 1964) at Lop Nor (Takia Makan desert), launched its first nuclear missile (October 25, 1966), and detonated its first hydrogen bomb (June 14, 1967).

The way the weapons are portrayed in the games is inconsistent; in the classic Fallout games, nuclear weapons are feared, respected, and exceedingly rare (not to mention that arguably the most intelligent being in the Fallout world, the Master, is unwilling to unleash the power of the atom again). The chances of de-escalation are high if the use of nuclear weapons is carefully planned and their use is limited to the battlefield.

The whole idea behind having nuclear weapons is to exact fear into the enemy. Ordinarily, weak states calculate more fearfully and move more cautiously than strong ones.� The thought that fear and caution may lead insecure countries to launch pre-emptive strikes has amplified anxieties about the instability of regions populated by lesser nuclear powers and about the extent of destruction their weapons may bring.

Currently, essentially all of Iraq's pre-Gulf War nuclear facilities and equipment have been eliminated or converted to non-proscribed purposes under periodic Action Team inspections. That is the lesson learned time and again.
