Personally I don't expect a major nuclear war. Nuclear strikes in the future will probably be relatively small, involving at most a few nukes at a time. No one can afford mutually assured destruction.
As for nuclear winter, I'm still skeptical that it's even possible. It seems to me that it would take a hell of a lot of nukes to get enough dust into the air to really cool things down. I mean, we've had volcanoes in the past with the power of hundreds of nukes at once, and they didn't cause a volcanic winter.
In the Quran [Koran], a chapter states [translated]:
"Hotamah" means the tiniest of particles. Does this mean that it has been predicted that such an event will happen, or is this coincidence?

Face it, people have been reading all sorts of stuff into holy books after the fact. However, so far there have been no patterns more definite than a combination of concidence and reinterpretation would suggest. You can find 'hidden messages' in just about anything if you look hard enough. A million monkeys on a million typewriters sort of thing.
