ok. Tell me why you think that countries should be allowed to make weapons that can kill millions of people in one strike. Huh?

so other countries wont mess with each other if a country knows you have the finger on the trigger to launch a nuke then they will back off. the only two bombs that have been used by Americans were on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

That is true, although if no countries had any nuclear weapons, these things would not be a problem. No nuclear weapons, no bluffing and lying, no need to attack and kill millions of people.

marcustheman forfeited this round.

It is sad that the world has resorted to this. Ideally there would be no wars yada yada yada... but reality is there are wars. There ARE nuclear weapons. Countries now sometimes find it necessary to build just so that they can have something to protect themselves. Not being allowed to build nuclear weapons would just give more power to the countries that have already built them. Unfortunately, the only way to stand up to bullies is to grow some muscles of your own.

In an ideal world, yes, nuclear weapons would not be necessary. However, we do not live in a perfect world, so, yes, nuclear weapons should be built, if not used.
