Well, today is the anniversary of the first attack with nuclear weaponry. I am curious as to the opinions of people on the use of these weapons then, in that circumstance, and the reasons different countries are maintaining their stockpiles today. I also wonder if there is still anyone out there who considers the 'N' of NBC (Nuclear-Biological-Chemical) to be the only actual wmd.
We controlled the proliferation and use of these things, relatively speaking, over the course of the cold war, and now we are faced with the question of who has access to these things now, and who is seeking access to them (Iran, NKorea, Taiwan, Israel, terror groups). How do we prevent them from being used by groups with less to lose than the superpowers of the cold war?
No pie in the sky wishful thinking, no fingerpointing, just some ideas to get floating.
