Nuclear Technology


What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear Nuclear Disarmment? For me, the first
thing that comes to my mind is the incident on August 1945 at Hiroshima and Nagasaki, which
according to official sources killed around 1.5 million innocent Japanese people.

First of all, In August 1945, U.S dropped two atom bombs in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, which
ended the World War II and started the nuclear race in the world. It was the first time in the world
when a nuclear weapon was used for human destruction. In the recent years (mainly from 1992)
U.S government is following nuclear disarmament policy and thereby endangering not only U.S
citizens lives but the whole world’s lives.

Secondly, let us see the problems involved in nuclear disarmament. Nuclear disarmament, which
means reducing the nuclear weapons that we posses, is one of the current sensitive issues among the
nations. The problem in short is that. There are five countries in the world, that are declared as
nuclear warhead nations and they are U.S, Russia, China, France and UK. There are five more
nations that are undeclared but posses nuclear weapons. They are India, Pakistan, Republic of
Korea, Iran and Israel.

I feel that, America should not follow nuclear disarmament policy. We should possess nuclear
weapons for our country’s security. In 1945, the then President Truman decided to drop atom
bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki because he was sure that Japanese were not well equipped with
nuclear weapons. If Japan might have had a bomb, and then U.S would not have dropped bombs in
Japan fearing for American’s lives.
