I have a hypothesis:
If every nation had a nuclear weapon capable of being deployed, then there will not be war.
As seen in history, nations who have nuclear weapons have always avoided direct conflict between each other. Countries with nukes have not been
invaded in the last 50 years. Take Cuba as an example, the U.S. was scared of them right? If China did not develop a nuke under Mao then China would
probably have ended up the same way as Japan, UK, and South Korea. The U.S. invaded Iraq for its oil because the government KNEW that Saddam didn't
have any WMDs, we were told that there were nukes so that we'll get all "pumped" up about fighting the Middle Easterners. Right now there is
hesitation about fight Iran maybe for the same reason as Iraq; Pentagon knows that Iran doesn't have nukes, they just want to keep our nationalism
Now if every nation had a nuclear weapon, then everyone would be scared to ever go to war. As I am pretty sure that Bush is afraid of dying and
so is Congress. Maybe if African countries had nukes, they can scare off the Neocolonialists and end the guerrilla warfare supported by foreign
corporations. If Iraq had nukes, the U.S. would never have invaded it, that's for sure.
"What if the leader is untrustworthy and mafias can steal the nukes?" By then. I really don't think that any nation would want to fight
each other. Mutually Assured Destruction is unwelcome and would probably never happen on this planet. As for the mafias; I'm pretty sure that a
government capable of handling nuclear weapons is able to protect itself from internal conflict such as that.
So, shall we let the nukular production began for the sake of humanity and the future?
