    Just from memory, the countries that currently have nuclear weapons are: U.S., Great Britan, China, Germany, France, Russia, Pakistan, India and Israel. Interestingly enough, until the end of white rule in South Africa, they were a nuclear power as well. The outgoing government did not want to leave nukes in the hands of Mandela so they were dismantled. As to why so many countries have nuclear weapons, every country has them for their own individual reasons. The U.S. and the former U.S.S.R. developed their weapons programs as a means of deterrant against each other. Countries like Great Britan, France and West Germany developed their weapons programs as they would have been the first struck in a Soviet attack. Going further down the line, China's program can be traced to the split in the interpretation of Marxism with the Soviet Union. China no longer trusted the Soviets so they developed a detterant of their own. Getting to Israel, they developed their weapons in secret and have what is known as the Samson policy: if they are attacked again as they were in ( I think) '48 and '67, they can launch their weapons against neighboring arab countries.

    As far as WHO should have nuclear weapons or other "WMD's", frankly no one should have them. In the post Soviet era, these weapons are no longer a neccesity. Unfortunatly, now that the U.S. is the strongest nation on Earth, many nations feel the need to begin programs of their own as a means of detterant against us. Thats where North Korea and Iran come in. These programs in the hands of unstable leaders means that nuclear weapons can get in the hands of terrorists who would surely love to level New York or Washington. Why the cabal that controls the white house chose to attack a nation that clearly had no nuclear weapons and pretended to have an active program because they knew Iran was developing their own weapons in conjuntion with North Korea is beyond reason. In doing this they have given North Korea and Iran the justification they needed to gain the weapons they want and, in the case of North Korea specifically, the opporitunity to sell them to the highest bidder.

    Good follow up ...Ashadeofgray

    WMD are chemical, biological or nuclear weapons. We have all these. We have sold these to other nations.

    How many times and how many weapons are needed to destroy the world? Our current spending of tax dollars frustrate me.

    =======================

    ~28,800: The total number of intact nuclear warheads retained by the United States and Russia.

    ~30,000: Number of intact nuclear warheads throughout the world. 17,500 of these are considered operational.

    The way I see it, the people who sell the blueprints to the highest bidder are the ones who decide who can have WMD or not. Show them the money and they will give you the recipe. It's about power and money.

    Brother James ... "we" can have them ... ??? ... "we" who?

    Do you seriously believe that someone who views you as a threat, is going to listen to you say ... they can't have a bomb ... while you have truckloads of them?

    I'm not able to follow your logic ... help me please.

    :heart:

    Sister Queenie ... who are the people who sell the blueprints?

    If that is the US, how can they be crying about who purchased them, after they closed the deal?

    This country is a greedy bully with an enormous appetite. They know that they can't TAKE anything from or DICTATE anything to any other country who has a nuclear weapon, especially, because if worse comes to worst, that country can bring us to our knees. Of course this country would have wiped that country out in the process. So the U.S will only "allow" those who they consider their permanent friends or most likely to be permanent friends to have WMDs.

    Also, they definitely don't want any country who they consider to be unstable to have a WMD because, given the HUGE egos among warmongers out there and in this country, they know it's only a matter of a short time before it's armageddon time.
