Abolish Nuclear Weapoms
Debate Rounds (3)
No, I mean hi there! :D
The motion we have and will debate on is to abolish nuclear weapons and I will be be speaking against this. So, before I present my line of arguments and positive case, I will provide some definitions. Nuclear weapons are weapons of mass destruction that cause explosions and derive its energy from nuclear reactions. Abolishing them means eradicating them from the face of the earth entirely - to not leave even one behind.
Moving on, my first line of argument is how nuclear weapons are an important part of this world now and are needed for deterrence. A very important fact is that the very existence of nuclear is what is keeping superpowers from triggering a war, in which the use of nukes is inevitable. Countries do not even dare to upset the other and involve armies, through which they and we all know what will happen. The use of these weapons leads to great tragedies and Hiroshima and Nagasaki are in front of us, we all know what happened there. Because nuclear weapons cause so much destruction and devastation countries try not to engage each other especially if they are nuclear weapon states. We all saw how peaceful the Cold War period was, because the two superpowers' (US and USSR) nuclear weapons were deterrents.
Countries need to be able to defend themselves better and nuclear weapons are the best way to do this. A country and its people need to feel safe and they know with that countries without WMDs will not dare to attack them and a NWS will not attack them because they won't risk the safety of their own people nor will they risk a nuclear war. The use of nuclear weapons to threaten is legal and when a country has nuclear weapons, it prevents others from using it. If the US gets rid of nuclear weapons, would that stop North Korea from attacking anyone? The most important thing that governments need to take care of is safety and with nuclear weapons present we are actually ensuring safety so that our people do not panic or think that the leadership is incompetent.
With this I end my argument.
