    i dunno if i would want that. From 1950-now there's been unprecedented peace between world powers. At most, there's been proxy wars. Yeah we all fear on some level the destruction from total war with these weapons, but let's not act like conventional war isn't devastating either. Look at WWII *up until* nagasaki and what would've been the land invasion and then look at small scale conflicts since then

    No one HAS to be in the UN. If they dont like the treaty they signed, they can leave it, and its protections.

When in fact we're just another people seeking wealth and prosperity at the expense of the weak. You know what you can do with your platitude?

    Actually, it comes from thoroughly documented historical research.

    I suspect the coming century will see much broader possession of nuclear weapons. That's not a moral judgment, just an assessment.

    I quite agree. No country's leadership has ever been without end. We did indeed use nuclear weapons when they were essential for victory against a tyrannical aggressor. They will be used again by someone else, likely with much less justification.

    And it was in Japan's interest for the U.S> not have nuclear weapons - and it is not up to the U.S. to decide what other nations can and cannot have - that is colonialism
