Thank you, but I don't understand how it is that some countries can dictate to others what they're allowed to have to defend their countries
with. If some countries have nukes, why can't others?
Many others had tried to explain it quite well.
The main crux is that nukes are dangerous toys.
Every human should be allowed guns, but should everyone be allowed nukes?
Guns can kill at most hundreds if that gunner is good before he is taken out by others. But with just ONE nuke, it can wipe out an entire city. Thus
the vital and critcal need to ensure such weapons are properly regulated by those who already own it and to stop further nuke proliferation by others
who desire for it.
Should proliferation be allowed, nukes would be mass produced like guns, and even anyone will be able to bribe or steal it easily.
Today, we had seen the damage done by terrorist suicide bombers using just dynamite, killing hundreds and destroying infrastructure such as buildings,
stadiums, buses, aircraft in mid flights and trains. Just imagine if one suicide bomber straps a minituarised nuke in his backback, sits in the park
in the centre of a city, guess how many lives will be wiped out?
As mentioned, nukes are dangerous toys that should not have been invented, but we can no longer change the past, however, we can still change the
future through responsible use of nukes, as nukes were meant to be a deterrant, and not for wars.
There are 3 major powers within UN security council, and each has their own allies and supporters. Those nuke powers in our world had agreed on a
NEVER first strike policy with nukes, meaning that they will never be the first to fire nukes unless they are fired upon.
However, the small young punk Fatboy Kim of NK had clandestinely created nukes now and had threatened thermonuclear war upon mankind, do you think the
world, including China, Russia and USA, will EVER let this mad rabid dog own nukes? Probably only when hell freezes over.
