The problem with the above statement is: if the above is true
Consider that if nanny aliens were attempting to keep us from playing with matchsticks, Something would have been done long ago, and the
List of countries with Nuclear Weapons
wouldn't be what it is.
Don't forget to read about nuclear weapons sharing.
Further, there's also a much longer list of nations with clear nuclear capability from nuclear power projects.
There are no nanny aliens.
Sure, there's fun stories and reports, but, if any of that was true, what's not to prevent anything beyond the early days of research and testing.
Was any of that testing stopped?
Bombs got bigger, and bombs turned into missiles, and missiles turned into Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles, and the technology continued to get
better, more precise, and now, there's no telling what other sorts of weapons are are on the shelves even beyond nuclear.
No, if we're going to obliterate ourselves, no nanny aliens are going to show up to do anything about it.
