Introduction Nuclear attacks are due to military conflicts or a political strategy in which some form of nuclear weapon is used to inflict damage on the opponent. Terrorism is the use of violence to threat or intimidate generally for political reasoning. Both Nuclear attacks and terrorism are used to coerce the opposing party into meeting specific demands.
