Nuclear war

Will there be a nuclear war with Iraq? The Chief Weapons Inspector, Mr Hans Blix, has said that his team has not found any weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. On the other hand, the President of United States has said that the use of nuclear weapons cannot be ruled out in a war with Iraq.

Till date, the US is the only country which has used nuclear weapons in a war. Since then, massive nuclear weapon stockpiles have been built all over the globe, but no country has used them. Now, after more than half a century, the US is talking of using nuclear weapons.

When the first bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, Albert Einstein had remarked, "We (the scientists responsible for manufacturing the Bomb) have sinned." Today, no scientist thinks it is a sin to make a nuclear bomb. On the contrary, they (scientists) are proud and talk of using them as well. The sane people of the world should join hands and prevent another catastrophe like Hiroshima-Nagasaki from taking place.
