Nukes scare off the bigger countries from starting a war ?
So in a kind of way nukes are peace makers...

The scary part would be if a small country with a leader that have nothing to loose and ain't afraid of dying and sacrafising everything in the name of some god or just pure insanity or those two combined.

So I dont really know whats better...

Remove all nukes on earth but along with that the temptation of traditional war grows, when the fear of being defeated by a bunch of nukes is gone


Hand out nukes to everybody.. Everybody would be affraid to start a war, because they know if they lunch one, they will get one back in their head...

Every nation owns "Cobalt thorium G" bombs that activate only if the country is attacked and it is impossible to disarm them. The Doomsday Machine.

Yeah and it would be cool that a country that has a Doomsday Machine would announce it. Because that is the point of it.

Lers change the topic of this thread. If you had to pick one country to nuke, which one would it be and why. Go!

Because then no innocent people would lose their lives.
No nature would go to waste because there's not really any nature left there.
Just a small bomb would be needed.

Haven't Israel said many a time that they would release all of their nukes at the world if ever they were attacked? I could see Best Korea doing it before Kim Jong Il dies

In the history of warfare, only two nuclear weapons have been detonated offensively, both near the end of World War II. The first was detonated on the morning of 6 August 1945, when the United States dropped a uranium gun-type device code-named "Little Boy" on the Japanese city of Hiroshima. The second was detonated three days later when the United States dropped a plutonium implosion-type device code-named "Fat Man" on the city of Nagasaki, Japan. These two bombings resulted in the deaths of approximately 200,000 Japanese people (mostly civilians) from acute injuries sustained from the explosion. The role of the bombings in Japan's surrender and the U.S.'s ethical justification for them remains the subject of scholarly and popular debate.
Since the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings, nuclear weapons have been detonated on over two thousand occasions for testing purposes and demonstration purposes. A few states have possessed such weapons or are suspected of seeking them. The only countries known to have detonated nuclear weapons—and that acknowledge possessing such weapons—are (chronologically) the United States, the Soviet Union (succeeded as a nuclear power by Russia), the United Kingdom, France, the People's Republic of China, India, Pakistan, and North Korea. Israel is also widely believed to possess nuclear weapons, though it does not acknowledge having them.
