Nuclear Weapons

Nuclear weapons are, for obvious reasons, a threat to civilians around the world, regardless of whether their own nation has them. A number of nations today have them, most of htem Western nations. Some of these nations are “allowed” to have them by the UN (like the US, Britain, or France), some aren’t (like Pakistan, India, or Israel). Why is it that certain nations are trusted not to do anything too bad with them is beyond my understanding, especially considering that the US is the only nation to have actually done anything bad with them.

The Federation of American Scientists has extensive information concerning nuclear weapons, including a “Bomb-A-City Calculator” and a “Nuclear Forces Guide.”
