Theres a few reasons for that Vie. #1, we wont let them. #2, We make no secret we have them, in fact we have many thousands of them and we can put them into a tennis court from over 6,000 miles away. Even better we have 18 submarines, each carrying 24 trident missiles, with each missile capable of delivering up to 12 independently targated warheads, that blow at 475kt "Hiroshima was 16 kt", and each of these missiles can hit a baseball infield from 6,000 miles away. In fact the subs dont even have to be at sea to launch due to the range of their missiles. Our sailors can be sitting on the deck, sipping margaritas, while berthed at Pearl Harbor, and launch a few at that deranged midget in North Korea if he threatens us.
And hes going to threaten us. While his people are starving, his children are burning, hes developeing and exporting both hardware and technology for advanced ICBMs and even nuclear weapon designs. NK and Iran are also working together to develope a space based launch vehicle that spins around the earth, loaded with nukes, waiting for the midget to dial a number on his cell phone. The midget already has nuclear weapons.
If America hadnt discovered and developed nuclear weapons what kind of free world do you think we'd have now? There wouldnt be one! Not that Brazils exactly "free" anyway but even "you" had an advanced nuclear weapons program at one time. Thats right, your various military juntas/Dictators were frustrated by American efforts to keep South America nuclear free so you allied with Germany in the '70s to advance your nuke program. By 1980 you had the capacity to build a bomb with two advanced designs ready to be constructed.
In 1981 Brazil shipped tons of Uranium to Iraq to help Saddam with his nuclear weapons program. Eventually Brazil and Argentina came to their senses and ended this mad nuke race. For the most part you got rid of your generals and dictators, and thanks to America, South America is nuclear weapons free now.
Now in answer to your statement about "only America allowed to have nuclear weapons". Here is a list of the countrys who have/have had nuclear weapons, this is mostly in order. 1, America-2, USSR/Russia-3, Great Britain-4, France-5, China-6,Israel,7-South Africa "voluntarily gave them up"-8,India-9,Pakistan-10, North Korea-soon to be 11, Iran.
So that answers that question. Now can you imagine shitholes like NK,Iran, a hostile Pakistan, developeing these weapons,exporting them, giving them to terrorists,putting them on advanced delivery systems ? BTW Russia still cant account for 100 nukes lost after the breakup of the Soviet Union. "Oh well"!
So thats the reason America has them my friend. We have them cause we "have to" have them. Weve always "had to", ever since 1945 when we first built them. And if you think this situation is scarey you should see the list of various shitholes that have advanced chemical/biological weapons programs and capabilitys. Type it into a search engine and see what bounces back at you. Personaly I have 1 months supply of MREs in my house, water, and a couple of years worth of ammo.
Americans hate these things more then anyone else does. Weve led the world in disarment initiatives and have voluntarily dismantled our chem/bio programs and stocks. If it wasnt for America and our courage to stand for the free world there wouldnt be a "free world", so have a little respect.
In ending I want to say that the proliferation of WMDs by rouge nations/terrorists is the greatest threat humankind has ever faced. Worse then smallpox,black death, conventional war, poverty, even friggin asteroids. If we dont stop it now our children will inherit a nightmare world. We have to stand now even if it means useing the things.............take care............Rich
