    So basically, let me give you an example:
    In the Cold War, if the US was to nuke the USSR, the USSR would know and they would nuke the US right back. That way, both of them would get hit, and both of them would die. Basically, there's no way of nuking the opposition without them firing straight back.
    With another, let's say that I was in a fight with you and I had my gun point blank at your head and you had your gun point blank at my head. If either of us was to shoot, the other would shoot back: both of us would die. There's no way for only one of us to die because the other would fire straight back.
