Absolutely not. Nothing good can or will come from nuclear weapons but distruction. The sooner we eliminate these life threatening mechanisms, the sooner we ensure our longivity here on earth.
I agree with you, but I asked the question to see how many people are for or against countries with these weapons of mass destruction
If people would be mentally on a higher level, then I would say yes - but not for defence against other nations. Nuclear weapons are our primary defence when it comes to a threat of an asteroid on trajectory to earth (not as impossible as one would assume) so it would be nice to have a widely spread defence and a good number of nukes.
However as we are still globally mentally retarded and there will always be someone, some leader that will have the need to use these horrible weapons for mass destruction to harm people, the answer is no, no and again no.
No. These weapons create nothing but fear to other small countries who are not equipped with these weapons, and on the other hand countries who are equipped will act as if they own everything because they can threaten people and other countries by their weapons.
If one country has them, then every country should need them for their own protection.
Of course it would be better if noone had them. Most countries have nuclear weapons to let other countries know that if they send a nuclear missile, they will get one back.
It is just like the cold war. All sides will have them, but noone will want to use them.

How serious and immediate is a nuclear threat from Iran? What should we do about it? Some of the same hawks who helped talk us into invading Iraq are coming out of the woodwork and saying that a nuclear Iran is intolerable and something must be done to prevent it from happening. A timely and...
