Nuclear Weaponry: The Best Guarantee for Peace?
by Naira Yaqoob Bookmark and Share


On 6th August 1945, a single US Air Force plane dropped a single atom bomb over the city of Hiroshima. Within minutes the city was a mass of dust and debris. Hours later, it was reported that 60% of the built-up area of the city was completely destroyed and thousands of civilians were killed. This is how the atomic age was introduced to the mankind. This marked the start of a new era.

We may not like it – but we have to face it! We are living in a nuclear age where security issue leads to a possibility of war rather than peace. Consequently, we want and long for peace all over the world, but where and how is it to be established? This is the million-dollar question!
