    Nuclear Weapons

    Post by ryanlol on Sun Jul 18, 2010 1:58 am

    Love 'em? hate 'em? Ban 'em? Keep 'em? Are they necessary?

    Nuclear weapons are very dangerous, but I think that until we KNOW countries like North Korea and Iran aren't creating them, we need to have some of our own.

    If we got rid of our nukes and then North Korea comes over and decides they want to be more powerful than America and attack, then we'd be rather defenceless.

    Nuclear Weapons save lives. It's called MAD (Mutual Assured Destruction) As long as we have nukes, there will not be another war between civilized countries. Nukes don't exist to be used. They exist to deter others from attacking.

    Like I said above, nuclear weapons keep the peace because once one nuke is launched, the whole world is fucked, and nobody wants that. No nuke holding country will declare war on another.

    I agree with this. Having them keeps others from attacking with fear that we'd use them. And besides, if there was ever some serious conflict and the others with nukes were threatning us with their nukes it's nice to have a last resort.

    I agree with Ty and Alex. If we do have nuclear weapons, then hopefully there would be a less chance of another country trying to take over the United States. Hopefully, that fear will keep countries such as North Korea away. Just because they supposedly don't have them anymore, doesn't mean that we shouldn't have them.
