Name the ONLY country that's ever used a nuclear weapon on humans?
Name the country that has been the most active in starting/fighting wars in the last 100 years?
Who exactly can be trusted and who can't? And who decides such lists?
I have zero doubt that Japan, Germany, and the Soviet Union would have during WW2 had they been able to. The fact that the US was the first, and thus so far only, is more a matter of timing than anything else.
But since that will never happen, the other alternative is better than a fantasy. It's like saying that pollution would go away if nobody had cars. That's a ridiculous proposition though.
Waitaminute! Pollution could go away (or at least be significantly reduced) with the use of renewables. And it's not a fantasy. But you can't expect to be taken seriously if your in possession of contraband that you wish to deny others.
Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy
