In contrast to the World War II atomic bombings in Japan, continuous fire areas sometimes cover hundreds of square km (or sq. mi.), preventing survivors from escaping. For several reasons, then, deterrent strate�gies promise less damage than war-fighting strategies. But in this case, as in the two European wars, hegemonic political ambitions fueled the conflict. Chlorine gas, mustard gas, phosphene gas killed thousands on both sides of the conflict.

No more than the United States and the Soviet Union will lesser nuclear states want to rely on the deterrent threat that risks all.� And will not their vulnerability to conventional attack induce them continue their conventional efforts? Chlorine and mustard gas were among the most physically and psychologically damaging weapons of the First World War. Katz wrote the above fully 37 years after the first detonation of a nuclear weapon. In interviews published posthumously, MacArthur said he had a plan that would have won the war in 10 days: "I would have dropped 30 or so atomic bombs. .. strung across the neck of Manchuria."

As we now know, there were more than 150 nuclear weapons in Cuba which would have carpeted most of the eastern and midwestern United States and led to the deaths of tens of millions of Americans. Sini could not nail down the exact day and the time that the event took place. The IPFM has been investigating a similar approach for weapon components or naval-reactor fuel containing HEU. To a cultural backdrop of ‘make love not war’ and ‘ban the bomb’, the late 1960s was a period of great optimism about disarmament.

From its inception the deployment of nuclear energy to generate electricity was designed to give PR cover to the hugely lucrative and totally immoral business of building nuclear weapons. That is, the cost of developing, testing, and building the warheads was borne almost entirely by the Atomic Energy Commission (now the Department of Energy). Some of these were trivial errors and were spotted quickly, but several went to more serious levels.

A bomb with the power of 10 megatons is capable of destroying most houses within a distance of more than 10 miles from the blast site. The largest modern weapons include a fissionable outer shell of uranium. Few moral or political considerations entered the picture. But it would not threaten to bring the entire global system to a halt, or potentially lead to the release of thousands of warheads against of hundreds of cities across the globe, the “unthinkable” war for which Americans spent decades preparing, and for which we still maintain an arsenal of strategic weapons deliverable by air, land, and sea.

This is what the world would look like after a US-Russia nuclear war: It is immoral that these two countries threaten not just their own citizens, but also the entire world with their nuclear arsenals. As nuclear security and nonproliferation expert James Doyle points out, with the possible exception of North Korea, no other nuclear power “has state goals or conducts a foreign policy fundamentally hostile to the interests of the United States.” The nonnuclear threats that currently face the United States and its allies do not rise to the level of requiring a nuclear response.
