You would make a better Kiwi and an Australian
I think you'll find a majority of the world is against nuclear weaponry, I personally don't think we should even have nuclear power plants either.
On the flip side of the coin....by Israel having nuclear bombs keeps her Arab cousins from taking her in to another full scale war of multiple Arab
countries. They know by wiping out Israel means the fall out equals wiping out pretty much the intire Middle East. If Israel dismantled her nuclear
arsenal tomorrow, would that 101% guarantee none of her neighbours would seek WMD? I think not.
I won't go in to hypotheticals of Russia or China using their WMD on any nation because the fallout, they know, would destroy the intire world and I
am reasonably confident they would never use their big ones in any war on earth. Smaller more contained WMD like the Atom bomb used over Japan?
Perhaps sometime in the future. Their nuclear power stations are probably a greater worry. I suspect the USA may have used at least one or two very
small ones over Iraq. Would Iran or North Korea? The stakes are higher. Both Iran and Iraq used biological WMD during their conflict with eachother
and both countries have it on the Kurds. So who is not to say Iran would use nuclear WMD ? Pakistan? I have no doubts they would use their
capabilities on India if forced to do so.
May I also remind you of the atmospheric nuclear experiments by both British and American in South Australia during the 1950s? The fall out still
continues to this very day.
Strange how the major nuclear powers signed a treaty to stop nuclear atmospheric, sea and space experiments but NOT underground.
We don't need nuclear power stations period however if solar panels were alot more affordable....if African huts can power up using solar panels as
small as 2x A3 size cheaply then why can't every home around the world have them?
Now let's go to space. It is not an impossibility earth could be endangered by an alien invasion at some time in the future. What then?
I do know the Americans have lazer technology in their arsenal that can turn a man's eyes to dust and could cut a man's body in pieces in seconds
but has not been used on the war front to date (or have they?). Perhaps lazer technology is more feesible than nuclear WMD. Either way, the nuclear
race is on and I'm afraid to say there are now many other countries now sniffing around to obtain nuclear technology; I know Jordan, Egypt, Burma and
Saudi Arabia are big contenders. Iran...I'm already certain they have enough to build 1-3 bombs already; size? Is anyone's guess but I'm sure
Israel and the USA have far better inside knowledge to their every move. I'm afraid it's pretty much too late now to stop the nuclear race. To
keep it out of the South Pacific and nuclear free....won't happen because even though NZ is nuclear free, we all know there are American nuclear
powered with nuclear WMD on board their subs that roam NZ waters and the rest of the South Pacific.
The USA and war crimes re Japan? A very close relative spent 2 years in a Japanese POW camp and close to death when his camp was liberated by the
Americans. You want to know how many American and Coalition soldiers were murdered in these POW camps? Not many got out alive and barely! We still
don't know the true count of those missing that walked in to those POW camps and were never seen again. I won't go in to details what went on in
those camps but I can tell you what those Japs did to our men would make even the worst Nazi blush! You are aware of at least 2 Japanese subs that
invaded Sydney Harbour during WW2. They bombed a ferry full of innocent people. The sub sunk and was only just discovered a year or so ago.
