Actually, Ganesh, many nations now support nuclear disarmament in order to reduce the number of nuclear weapons that each nation has and to restrict other, more unstable, countries from developing them at all. This is one of the conflicts the U.N. is having with Iran right now. Many years ago, when the U.S. and Russia were enemies and each feared that the other would fire a nuclear weapon, many of us had shelters in our basements stocked with supplies. Some poeple even built underground shelters.

Yes, I'm in the U.S. and our mutual fear of each other kept the U.S. and Russia from taking aggressive actions towards each other until, finally, we made peace. There is more than just radiation to worry about if a nuclear weapon is fired. There is, of course, the total destruction of the area hit, plus additional destruction from the fireball...and then there's radioactive fallout which will travel according to the wind speed and direction. I don't know how long survivors would have to stay inside but with a portable radio, anyone hiding out in a bunker would be able to hear the all clear from their local government when it was safe.
