…the United States of America because the first and (so far) only country to use a nuclear weapon during war time. And I’m with one of the survivors.
I still think President Truman made the right decision given the progress of the war and what the Japanese had planned as defense against a US invasion. It’s not just the American lives that would have been lost, it’s the millions of Japanese civilians that would have died defending their homeland.
However, I also think we need to find a way to control these weapons and limit them to more reasonable numbers and yields. While we can’t put the genie back in the bottle, we have to find a way to make sure that should another of these weapons ever be used it doesn’t have the potential to ignite a larger conflict that could eliminate life on Earth.
