Why hasn’t there been a World War III?

ALBERT Einstein predicted that a World War III would be waged with nuclear weapons that would virtually destroy civilisation. In fact, superpowers are working towards the best possible weaponries with devastating destruction capabilities. In this regard, Einstein had already presumed that the war after that would revert to Stone Age technology and be fought with primitive weapons.

A few years ago, the United States government set off a 1.4 megaton nuclear warhead at a height of 248 miles above Johnston Atoll, Hawaii in an operation the military named "Starfish Prime". No one expected the test to impact Hawaii, as it was 850 miles away. The device known as Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) is an intense energy field that can instantly overload electrical circuits. This indeed caused radio disruption, the sky turned red as streetlights, telephones went out in Hawaii, California, and Alaska, and knocked out six satellites above the Pacific. EMP effects from the distant nuclear explosion had struck. Amazingly, the bomb was about 100 times larger than the one which was dropped on Nagasaki.
