A Weapon Should Never Been Exist
The history behind nuclear weapons starts from the 1930’s which was 15 year before the world’s biggest and most damage caused attack happened. Since then, controlling the proliferation of nuclear weapons has been an important issue in international relations.
But what was the reason for this fear about nuclear weapons? Atomic bomb, also it is a nuclear weapon, is a weapon with great explosive power that causes the release of energy upon the fission of the nuclei. This energy releases an undetectable amount of radiation to the atmosphere, this causes an excessive amount of terrible effects on lives and neature. To be clear, a nuclear bomb can destroy a whole city, have a potential of killing millions, and jeopardising the natural environment and lives of future generations through its long-term catastrophic effects. Unfortunately we had a chance to observe the long term effects left from World War 2.
During World War 2, The United States attacked on the Japanese cities Hiroshima and Nagasaki which marked the first usage of atomic weapons in war. The two bombings killed between 129,000 and 226,000 people, most of whom were civilians and after thousands of them died through the long term effects of radiation exposure which still continues. Radiation can also have effects that happen on a longer scale, such as cancer, by causing mutations in the DNA of living cells. Mutations can occur spontaneously, but a mutagen like radiation increases the likelihood of a mutation taking place. So this leads to a whole extermination of race.
Even though there are many theories about this attack when we look at the number of people who were killed during this nuclear warfare, there is no need to find out the exact reason behind or blame the innocent civilians. World faced this disaster twice and whatever political reason they have nuclear weapons or any kind of nuclear attack must be illegal considering the never lasting damage it causes.
