We all know how the US dropped two nuclear bombs on Japan, killing countless citizens and causing grevious radiation poisioning to countless more. The most cited justification for this I've heard is that it saved more lives in the long run. Firstly, who is the US to know how many lives could or could not be saved if the bomb wasn't dropped, and secondly, should a nuke EVER be dropped, no matter what the circumstances are? We don't see the US throwing nukes around today, not only because of Mutually Assured Destruction, but simply because of the moral implications of doing such a thing. I believe that weapons as powerful as the nuke that was dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki should be locked away forever. Thoughts?
