Destroying Ourselves

I’m writing a book about Nuclear War and wanted to research about the bombs so I could portray it accurately. What I later found really disturbed me. I found out how many nukes the United States and the rest of the world are in possession of.

Now the states are a few years old, but should be basically right. About 20 thousand nukes are in the world today. 20 thousand? Someday one of these things is going to have to go off. I remember recently when I heard reports of some country figuring out how to make their own and the world was up in arms about it.

The United States have 8 thousand alone! Maybe people should be up in arms about us having 1. Let alone 8 thousand. Russia has even more; they have about a total of 10 thousand nukes. You have any idea how many times we can blow the world up? I looked it us, about 12 times we can obliterate all life on this planet.

I think we will be the ultimate cause of our demise. We keep on creating weapons to destroy enemies because we fear they are doing the same. Clearly we are ahead of them, by a lot. After the US, France had about 300 nukes. The whole Middle East combines has about the same as France.

I think in my lifetime there will be some sort of nuclear arms fight. The biggest problem is when one nuke is fired, then another will fire and another and another and another….do I have to keep on till I hit 20 thousand? It’s scary because it’s true. And like I said before…I think it’s something that will happen within the next few years….if not sooner.

    For years a large depot of nuclear bombs were stored in the Monzano mountains near Albuquerque. Under the agreement to dis-arm excess nukes, they were to be disposed of…they only moved them to another bunker on Kirkland AFB. I am sure this has happened all over, my point being that the figure of 8,000 in the U.S. is probably way low….not done away with, just moved to a new location but marked on paper as destroyed. Too many radical nations are getting their hands on various types and sizes (North Korea, Iran etc) and too many have access to the “Red” launch button…a mistake is going to happen and then it will be a total mess for the few that survive. The entire world will be knocked back to the stone age…
    Good post.

      thanks for the comments and thanks for reading. your 100% right. someday soon someone will make a mistake and that will be the end of this world as we know it. i understand a reason we have all these nukes is to deter other countries from attacking us, but this is way too much. some sites i read showed how many times we can destroy the world with the supply we have. i think the number is about 12 times. thats alot of times t destroy the world. thanks again for reading to do stop on by again to see if i write more that sparks your interest.
