### What is the probability of winning a nuclear war against...

Unfortunately, humans on Earth will probably experience a major (global) nuclear war soon (anytime before 2060).

So what is the probability of winning a nuclear war against a nuclear-armed enemy?

Can we (humans) survive the nuclear fallout or the nuclear winter or the aftermath of a major nuclear war?

FYI: "Pre-emptive nuclear strike:

In nuclear strategy, a first strike is a preemptive surprise attack employing overwhelming force. First strike capability is a country's ability to defeat another nuclear power by destroying its arsenal to the point where the attacking country can survive the weakened retaliation while the opposing side is left unable to continue war. The preferred methodology is to attack the opponent's strategic nuclear weapon facilities (missile silos, submarine bases, bomber airfields), command and control sites, and storage depots first. The strategy is called counterforce."

In times of peace, world powers prepare for war. And war preparations are ongoing.

FYI: "Opinion: Why nuclear weapons will always be with us.
With the dropping of the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki 75 years ago, a new form of horror came into the world.
There is only one sure way to ever get rid of these weapons, when mankind has invented an even more deadly and efficient killing tool, says Felix Steiner

FYI: "The most important thing about having nuclear weapons is a second strike capability. In a nuclear conflict, one who strikes first may win the war, but one who strikes second makes sure there is no one left to celebrate the win. That’s (so-called) nuclear deterrence in a nutshell..."

Humankind's greatest follies are ignorance, greed (lust for power and wealth and other vices), and hate/violence. And the great teacher/peacemaker, Jesus, tried in vain to teach us to love the Lord GOD foremost and to love our neighbors as we love ourselves. He tried to save us from ourselves. We do not listen, and we are not obedient...

Only Love (Lord GOD) can save us now.

FYI: "A beautiful, undeniably scary time-lapse map of the 2053 nuclear explosions which have taken place between 1945 and 1998, beginning with the Manhattan Project’s “Trinity” test near Los Alamos and concluding with Pakistan’s nuclear tests in May of 1998. This leaves out North Korea’s two alleged nuclear tests in this past decade (the legitimacy of both of which is not 100% clear). Each nation gets a blip and a flashing dot on the map whenever they detonate a nuclear weapon, with a running tally kept on the top and bottom bars of the screen. Hashimoto, who began the project in 2003, says that he created it with the goal of showing”the fear and folly of nuclear weapons.” It starts really slow—if you want to see real action, skip ahead to 1962 or so—but the buildup becomes overwhelming."
