Nuclear Weapons Don't Make The World Safer.

The above is a nuclear weapon 600 times stronger than the nuclear bomb dropped on Hiroshima. It is mercifully the last of the most powerful nuclear weapons in the United States of America. There is a profound saying in America about the greedy desires of building a massive military in the delusional belief warfare creates peace; nobody truly "wins" in a war. The original quote speaks of Air Force bombers but I altered it a bit to address the issue of nuclear weapons. To paraphrase, "It will be a great day when people get all the money they need for healthcare and the Air Force has to hold a bake sale to buy a nuclear weapons."

There is another quote that I like about the insanity of unchecked military aggression; "Arms are for hugging, not killing."

One well-kept secret relating to nuclear weapons involves repeated incursions by unknown aerial objects at both American and Soviet weapons sites during the Cold War era and beyond. Declassified documents from both countries confirm this strange development beyond a reasonable doubt.

Seven U.S. Air Force veterans spoke publicly about such incidents at the National Press Club on September 27, 2010. See:

CNN streamed the press conference live:

Sometimes life is indeed stranger than fiction.

That is true. Nuclear weapons don't make any state powerful too.Real power is the civilization which has formed with advanced human features by the people.

War is stupid and dropping a bomb on a country is pure cowardice. Why can't the human race be a more peaceful one? Then, maybe we wouldn't have all of this pain and sadness in the world.
