well, the most and simple way would be just destroying nuclear weapons and in general and dont allow production of new ones.

But as long as there are crazy People in our World, as long there are crazy things happening.

Quite depressive, isn't it?

You'd have to destroy quite a few- thousands.

noo. the atomic bomb was produced to end WW2 and to show the russians we were better.. the only reason they prevent war is because everyone knows their destructive power

The train of thought changed pretty quickly though as governments saw the power of nuclear weapons to prevent war. Nuclear weapons could never really be deployed in a global war due to collateral damage.

I meant for the comment to be ambiguous as to prove my point to Zenit. It's no matter anyway.

Why making a weapon that will never be used?

Exactly. It's fear of retaliation that prevents nuclear war.

I mean, isn't that what the Cold War was? Just scaring each other by developing new mass destruction weapons planned to be used against the other side?; but never came to use.

So we're all pointing guns to each other right now, in order to prevent shooting anyone down.

Nice.

Nice.
The big guns, yea. Not the small ones

Why criminals/cops have guns, just to provoke by scaring the target from doing anything stupid. In most cases. Let's just exclude any occasion where the criminal/cop could be a gun triggered moron, like Grace explained

The problem with handling big guns is that you don't only kill the criminal but other 5 million people, y'know.

That's sorta gross.

What I-Man said:

Unless, there now is a trigger happy moron behind the buttons... we should worry. The only option would to be sacrifice few for the many (seen global population wise) And I agree... strongly! It is gross .
Still, I don't believe there are any war solved through diplomacy/politics only. How could it then be a war? (define war?) (If you exclude the Cold "War")
