What do you people think of the Nuclear Deterrant/MAD system?
Do you think it has made the world a safer or less safe place in the last 60 years?
I think that after WWII, if countries that had nuclear weapons (I think they were the USSR and the USA), hadn't been enemies, one of them would have
tried to take over other countries (as it was up for grabs) but they never because they had to worry about the other one. Then other countries
obtained these weapons. I think they keep the world safe. Because they have so much destructive power, ironically they have kept us safe as
countries don't want to fight big wars against Nuclear powers. Also Nuclear powers don't want to go to war with each other.
They'd definitely make the world a more dangerous place if someone used one now because people would think, they used one, why can't we.
Well thats just my opinion.
I'd love to hear your opinions and some of your thoughts on the issue.
