Why should the US give up our nukes?
i actualy said no country should have them not just the us. tho it would make dissarmerment easyer if a country like the us would volintarily give
They were developed to end a world war, and where later used to stop another. This is the reason we legitimately have them now. To give them up
is to weaken the deterrent stopping many nations from attacking the US.
yes they were developed to end a war and they did help to end that war. i will also state that that war could have been won by more conventinal means.
especialy since the war in euope was already over. in one way i am glad they were used as both my grandfathers were prepareing to attack japan. but
then again i am sure that the germans thought the same thing about the use of mustered gas in the first world war.
what war did they stop? the cold war?
so it is okay that the us has nukes because they are a "deturrant"? the same excuse can be used by every other country on earth. and they are only a
realy good deturrant when only one side has them. so you are saying that if no one had nukes that the us would be attacked? i wonder why that might
happen. could it be that the bullied would now be able to stand up to a percieved bully? in that case mabe some countries shouldn't be throwing their
weight arround then. besides if the us millitary was at home i doubt that most countries would stand a chance if they attacked the us.
just think about how our lives would be better if we didn't have to worry about some country or other launching a nuklear strike against another. it
might do much to promote peace if they were ALL
as for another much heard arguement that a country like iran shouldn't have nuke is that "the leader is insane". many people may worry that the
currant or possibly future president, might be insane or untrustworthy of holding the "key" to launch an attack. i would say that from things like
the 911 conspiracy that many do considder the currant us administration to be unworthy of such a responsibility. they may not have used them yet but
one never knows untill it's too late, do they?
