Nuclear Weapons Essay Research Paper The topic

Nuclear Weapons Essay, Research Paper

The topic of nuclear weapons is one that will be around forever. One of my

favorite lines from the reading we had was that we cannot uninvent nuclear

weapons and this is completely right. If asked outright if I am for or against

nuclear weapons I would have to say that I am very much for them and I think

they are and absolute necessity for our country. We one of the riches countries

in the world but I think that also makes us the biggest target in the world. I

think for us to have nuclear weapons is an absolute necessity, I do at the same

time believe we should never fire them. If we were to totally rid ourselves of

nuclear weapons we might as well put a big sign on the front lawn of the White

House saying the country was for sale to the highest bidder or whoever had the

biggest bomb. The nuclear weapons we do have ended the cold war, stopped Sadam

in Iraq, and probably have stopped many other attacks on our country and our

citizens. People have seen what nuclear weapons can do from the bombings in

Japan that ended World War 2. These are powerful images in people?s mind and

not something they can deal with if they decide to attack the US. The case for

the removal of nuclear weapons is a very good one. These are indeed in the

fullest extent of the words, weapons of mass destruction. These weapons pose

many fears as well as morality questions that are all brought up by the

anti-nuclear people. The fact that the weapons are not capable of only wiping

out military targets is one that really gets to me. Weapons should never be used

against civilians and there is nothing to stop a nuclear weapon from affecting

only military targets. Another fear of mine related to these weapons has to do

with it takes very little effort to do a large amount of damage. Nuclear weapons

are neither an offensive nor a defensive weapon. They are more of a scare

tactic. We as a world leader must always be on the cutting edge with our weapons

and weapons systems or else, we will no longer be that world leader.
