I'm curious as to why it's believed that WW3 would automatically be a full nuclear war instead of a conventional conflict. I understand the concept of MAD and a couple other Cold War policies but I don't understand how a ruling power could get to the level of desperation that it would be a viable option to plunge the world into radioactive oblivion. What kind of conditions would have to be met to justify launching nukes instead of suing for peace or trying other conventional strategies.
