How Nuclear Weapons Have Changed Warfare
Monday, July 16, 1945, 5:29 A.M.
Hiroshima, August 6, 1945
Nagasaki, August 9, 1945
What makes the development of nuclear weapons so much more significant than past advances in warfare?
U.S. War Casualties Before 1945
U.S. War Casualties After 1945
Warfare has been exercised on a much smaller scale.
Why?
Where did we go from there?
We went big.
Some Comparisons:
Nuclear Fear
Annihilation is never a good thing.
1. Death
2. Destruction
3. Further use of nuclear weapons-domino effect
4. Enviromental Effects-"Nuclear Winter"
5. Radiation
Stockpiles of nuclear weapons give countries more legitimacy
But also make the world a more dangerous place
