    Nuclear weapons are the main reason why modern nations do not go to war with one another. I'd say that's a pretty good reason not to get rid of them completely.

    Removing the deterrent to war only increases the possibility of there being a war.

    well I think this will be a huge firestorm that will dwarf his school speech and astroturfing.

    Must admit though, he sure has made a lot of moves for a community organizer

    what is so special about him that his presence is required at the Security Council?
    i don't quite understand......one meeting? what's the big freaking deal?

    I came into this world fighting, screaming and covered in someone else's blood. I have no problem going out the same way.

    And living in a house filled with gas probably makes people more careful about starting fires. Just the same, I'd rather live in a house that is NOT filled with gas.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    Your post doesnt invalidate the point.

    Actually it does...but your following me around from one thread to another, posting this inane comment over and over again, does not invalidate MY point.

    Since one nuclear war packs the destructive power of MANY non-nuclear wars, it's impossible to definitively say that the increased deterrence is worth the increased destructive power. Nuclear weapons have only been around for a little over 60 years. That's not a very big sample size, and the world has already had several close calls with nukes.

    No. It just states that you have a prefernce.

    It doesnt -change- the fact that nuclear weapons deter war and that their absence mnakes war more likely, it simply states that YOU would prefer to not have that deterrence.

    Hate to tell you this, but your preferences do not overturn facts.

    Required? Or wanted by the international community. Yup, the rest of the world that is often forgotten for realist purposes.
    and so it goes...
