Obviously they’re not even a useful deterrent, but rather justification for other nations to possess them.
Are you serious?
Can anyone even begin to imagine the sorry shithole that we’d be in right now if it weren’t for the deterrent effect of nuclear weapons?
Why should America own them and not other nations?
That’s the problem. Other nations DO own them, that’s why WE have to own them. :-?
C’mon, somebody back me up on this one.
because if you don’t have enough nukes to blow up the world a hundred times, some other country might, and then they’d win . . . something . . . .
No, it’s becuase if you don’t have nukes, then countries can pretty much blackmail you and threaten you for anything they want! It’s kind of hard to threaten shooting someone if they have a gun in your face also…
