UNITED STATES NUCLEAR ARSENAL Now I am become Death the destroyer of worlds said Robert Oppenheimer one of the many scientists who assisted in the development of the nuclear bomb He knew that he created a weapon so deadly that it could force the end of mankind The United States has been the only country to drop a nuclear bomb on another country and when it did it was disastrous The two Japanese cities that the bombs were drop on were Hiroshima and Nagasaki and when the bomb was dropped on Hiroshima the co-pilot of the Engola Gay Robert Lewis said My God What have we done According to David Krieger President of the nuclear age peace foundation By the end of 1945 some 145000 people had died in Hiroshima and some 75000 people had died in Nagasaki Tens of thousands more suffered serious injuries Deaths among survivors of the bombings have continued over the years due primarily to the effects of radiation poisoning Over 220000 people were killed by two bombs that were dropped by the United States government but yet we still wont reduce our number of nuclear weapons According to the Center for Defense Information the United States still has 10656 nuclear missiles in their arsenal Two bombs killed over 220000 people but yet we have over 10500 missiles You have to ask yourself why do we need this many missiles The answer is we dont The United States could cut the numbers of missiles in half and still be just as powerful as they are now We just wouldnt be able to destroy the entire world as many times One reason we arent cutting down the number of missiles is it cost a significant amount of money to dismantle the weapons but yet we still are funding programs help research and build smaller and cheaper nuclear bombs The government isnt placing its money in the right places we shouldnt be building
