The Atomic Bombs are able incinerate people and animals if they close enough. As you can see, Atomic Bombs are very dangerous and somewhat interesting. The Atomic Bombs used to attack Japan were NOT the only ones used in history. Although it may seem that way, but there was one more. Like Tsar Bomba, that were more powerful than Little Boy and Fat Man.
These attacks just aggravate with the use of WMDs. Osama bin Laden’s al-Qaeda organization is one of the examples of a terrorist group that uses nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons for mass destruction. It even is continuing to develop and use such weapons as well as making attempts in obtaining radioactive material for a radiological weapon. All of these types of weapons of mass destruction discussed above prove to be very dangerous to our society and environment. In the further sections it will be made clear as to what changes have taken place in the production, development and usage of such havoc-causing weapons and how it is slowly becoming a part of all the
Should the USA have used atomic bombs against Japan to end World War II? War always takes several lives; it destroys balance and brings a bloody story. World War II began on 1939 until 1945 being this one black memory of mankind history. On August 6 and 9, 1945 Japan was scene of one of the cruelest attacks in the history. The United States´ President Harry S. Truman authorized the launch of the atomic bombs on the cities Hiroshima and Nagasaki, ending with the life of almost 214.000 people, civilians mostly.
The US Military killed thousands of Japan civilians with Napalm Bomb. Napalm bomb is bomb that containing sticky and flammable gel and was used as a weapon by the US Military in World War II. The US Military dropped the napalm bombs to Tokyo to burn 100.000 people. In my opinion, the use of chemical weapons is not appropriate, because chemical weapons have very dangerous effects. Someone who strucks chemical weapons, of course, his nerves and skin will be injured even wounded, and potentially resulting in death.
The force of the ‘Little Boy’ was extremely big and very powerful. As the attack on Hiroshima was in progress Japan was shocked and weakened in a matter of hours (“Hiroshima”). During the time the ‘Little Boy’ bomb that was dropped information was put throughout the media. As can anyone imagine the surprise attack for Pearl Harbor was in no comparison to the world's shock of the use of an atomic bomb. No one knew how big of an event it was going to
One of the most influential scientists of his century, Albert Einstein, will forever be the cause of nuclear warfare. It is hard to predict that a successful scientist could be responsible for millions of deaths. Despite having the best intentions, Einstein prompted the United State’s race to nuclear arms. With his signature on a letter warning the United States of Germany’s false progression of their atomic research influenced the government 's decision to create an atomic bomb which would be used later to destroy a japanese city, resulting in millions of deaths. Due to Albert Einstein 's fear for the safety of the United States, he prompted the destruction of other nations.
During the second World War (1939-1945) two atomic bombs were dropped on the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan, it is debatable whether or not these bombs were the appropriate response. I believe that this was the appropriate response because of the horrible crimes the Japanese committed against Americans as well as innocent people during the Rape of Nanking, the bombing of Pearl Harbor, and the Bataan Death march, also, the two bombs were the final factors in ending the war, as well as the atomic bombs were the first bomb of their kind, this put the Americans in a position of undeniable power. Without these bombs, the war would’ve only progressed and left behind more casualties and destruction. The Japanese committed horrible crimes against innocent
It played a part in WWII ending around a month later. The bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki brought about the beginning of the era of Mutual Assured Destruction, which means that if two countries that have atomic weapons go to war it is very likely that both countries will be obliterated. The potential for MAD became a reality when the Soviet Union acquired atomic weapons in 1949. To clarify, an atomic bomb is the splitting or fission of the nuclei of a molecule, creating an extremely large and destructive reaction. The destruction of Hiroshima and Nagasaki by atomic bomb was unnecessarily devastating because Japan was already on the verge of surrendering, they were effectively helpless and it decimated a civilian population.
World War II introduced the most dangerous weapon in the world, the atomic bomb. When the US used it on Japan we went to far and caused unnecessary damage to the people. Many people believe this to the only truth but, the real truth is that dropping the atomic bomb was a necessary evil we had to use in order to win the war in World War II and future wars to come. It save many american soldiers lives, stopped the Soviets from joining, and helped us win against Japan. First and foremost, World War II caused many casualties for both sides of the war.
The Cuban Missile Crisis was the height of the Cold War since there was so much tension between the two superpowers, and both sides had deadly nuclear weapons which could have led to war. During this time, war seemed inevitable to the citizens such as Dino Brugioni. Brugioni “made arrangements for his young family to get out of Washington in the event of war” and stated "’I had seen atomic blasts and I knew the destruction they had left, and I felt sure that Washington would be a target’" (Fidgen 2012). Brugioni is one of many US citizens who believed that nuclear war would be inevitable after the discovery of the Soviet missiles in Cuba, which shows the widespread fear of nuclear war during this time. The nuclear weapons were “an explicit threat to the peace and security of all the Americans” and war was only avoided because of the agreement that Khrushchev and Kennedy had come upon (Cantelon).
The “Rap-Back” Of Tech In the two stories, “Harrison Bergeron”, and “By The Waters Of Babylon”, the world is “destroyed”, or “remade”, after a technological “break-down”. Tech can very easily lead us to our own imminent demise, none the less it’s own, but usually, it may only do so with our allowing it. For example, Global Warming. Global Warming is, for the most part, the direct result of human activity. We use machines to burn fossil fuels and drill underground, which we couldn’t do without tech.
These numbers demonstrate the amount people that were killed from 2 bombs. Unlike Japan we need to be prepared to prevent one of these attacks to strike any of our big cities as we can lose millions of lives, as well as, suffer a catastrophic loss in our economy. This bill needs to be passed for 2 key reasons, firstly; the risk is too high and if we do get hit by a nuclear warhead the US will be in catastrophic state; secondly, it ensures safety amongst our citizens as we can protect ourselves if any country tries to engage a missile at the US. 1) My first point is that the risk is too high if we don’t have a defense system against nuclear warheads. On March 23, 1983 President Reagan posed the question, “Why can’t we deter a Soviet attack, that we could intercept and destroy strategic ballistic missiles before they reached our own soil
Albert Einstein once said that, “Technological progress is like an axe in the hands of a pathological criminal.”In the 1950’s, the first atomic bomb was dropped on hiroshima and nagasaki to end World War 2. Japan then surrendered due to catastrophic damage dealt in the cities, the people, and the environment. The main cause of the deaths and injuries were the gamma rays during and after the blast. In my opinion, technology has harmed society because advancements in new weaponry can cause disastrous consequences. In “There Will Come Soft Rains”, it conveys that there was a nuclear war, which resulted in the destruction of humanity.
