Did you know we wouldn't have bikinis without nuclear bombs? Well the first nuclear testing site was an island called bikini. The man who invented the bikini named it after Bikini island(Bikini Atomic Experiments). A nuclear bomb is the most destructive weapon in the world. It is so destructive because it sends out a wave of very intense heat,extreme pressure shortly follows,and if all this isn't bad enough nuclear fall out rains back down. After all of this if someone has survived that then they have to deal with the radiation poisoning(Harris). Also today about 10 counties have nuclear arms. These countries include the U.S.A, Russia, the UK, France, China, India, Pakistan, North Korea, Isriel and Pakistan("Nuclear Weapons: Who Has What?"). disarmament of the United Stated isn't a good idea because it is dangerous, isn't wise, and the govenment needs to protect its citizens.
Nuclear disarmament isn't a going to work because no one can garentee that other countries will do the same. It's the governments responsiblity to protect its people and leaving us defenseless wouldn't be protecting us. With other nations about to go nuclear, such as Iran, we shouldn't get rid of our most powerful weapons. Why would we get rid of our most powerful weapon if other countries wouldn't? Even if other countries would sign a treaty to get rid of nuclear weapons we couldn't really trust that they didn't hid a few. We could reduce the amount of nuclear weapons we have as long as we keep enough to defend us.
Nuclear weapons have only been used once in the history on man kind. Nuclear weapons were used in the bombing of Hirosima and Nagasaki. The total casualties were about 200,000 people(The Atomic Bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki). At first scientists didn't think that making an atomic bomb was possible before 1939. But after 1939 scientists did discovered they could make the bomb. In 1942 they finally made an atomic bomb. Shortly after that on August 6,1945 an atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima. disarmament is a good theroy but we need to not be so trusting. In a perfect world disarmament would work, but this isn't a perfect world. Why would countires who don't really like us follow our led and disarm? We don't follow other countries led, why would they follow ours? disarmament just isn't realistic.
Some may say that the world would be more safe without nuclear weapons. This is true no one could argue with that. But all nuclear armed countries wouldn't give up there most powerful bombs. Would China and Russia even consider that? If we could somehow have all nuclear armed countries sign a treaty I wouldn't believe they have up all their bombs. If they did we would all still have the capability to make more. disarmament is a good theroy but it isn't realistic.
Would disarmament really make the U.S.A. more secure? I do not think that it would make us more safe. It is a fact we have a lot of nuclear bombs. In fact the United...
