However, the stabilizing features of MAD evaporate quickly if one or both states has reason to fear that its arsenal won’t survive a strike — for instance, if its nuclear arsenal or delivery capabilities are small or vulnerable to attack.

The Minister of the Right later told Neptune that he filled the box with bombs that will explode if the box is opened. He did this as a security measure since the contents of the box were stolen ten years ago. The contents were stolen by Hody Jones and were mass produced by Zeo .
