    I find it was wrong discovering Nuclear weapons, that is because or it became useless considering the correctly deciding for NOT-using it against North Korea “Because the consequences would be very-very dangerous & very much negatively affecting to the Parties of the Nuclear War, avoiding the Nuclear War is the correct decision, therefore Nuclear Weapons it seems would never be used, if Brains are Normally functioning” and that is also a correct reason to be destroyed them.

    I think, USA has to understand that its Period of colonizing the World by Force, it seems it is END-today, Today we are in a Period of two Blocks, one block is of US & Allies and at other side is Russia, North Korea China and their Allies, so World Nuclear War is not going to be ” I hope so” otherwise it would be a very great-great Mistake of the Block which would start first “I hope no-one would start”.
