The Nonproliferation Treaty Nuclear Power Weapon

The history of the nuclear weapons can be traced back to the 1930s when the Manhattan Project was developed by the leading scientists of the world. The Manhattan Project was a scheme launched by the top scientists of the world so that they could use atomic energy to form weapons before any other country did so. The aim of the project was to maintain peace of the world but this could not be achieved as the US President Harry Truman decided to test the atomic bomb on Hiroshima. The bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki are remembered till date as the deadliest bombings as they killed more than 200,000 people. The Soviet Union was the second country to develop the atomic bomb in 1953. It was seen that both the US and Soviet Union dominated the case of weapons in the 1960s unchallenged. However, in the latter years China, United Kingdom, and France developed the weapons too (New Internationalist 2008. Cirincione 2007 p 80).
It is believed that the Nuclear Weapons have their own advantages when it comes to certain issues. Robinson argues that the United States should increase its nuclear warheads so that the peace of the world can be ensured for a longer time. He affirms that nuclear weapons can prove to be a great source of pressure for other nations as the fear that it has created is still felt all over the world. Nuclear warheads being possessed by different nations gives an edge to everyone. World Wars can be avoided.
