I think because in the case of a awar amongst the major powers, nuclear weapons are the deterrent therefore if war coems they are the first resort not the last. And even if not , if one side began to seriously lose, their last resort arsenal would come into play and your back to the original premise. You could pretend to not have nukes at all in a modern scenario but that's a different thing.
