War-monger Pentagon is at it again, accusing China of stockpiling nuclear arsenal. Chances are it is using that as an excuse of increasing its nuclear war head missiles and bombs.

As it is, US has already enough nuclear weapons to flatten all the big and small cities in the world. Still want some more?

The U.S. was a trailblazer of the nuclear age by dropping atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, engendering all-out faith in nuclear weapons.  

Today、there are 13,764 nuclear weapons all over the world, excluding North Korea, Pakistan, India and probably Israel. The breakdown by nation according to Wikipedia follow:

U.S.A.: 6,459

Russia: 6,490

U.K.:        215

France:   300

China:     200-300 (The figures are based on this article.)

It's really a sad, deploring situation. It seems LLDCs or least less developed countries believe that possession of nuclear weapons increment their reputation and importance in the international community and so they become very hectic about winning a seat in the nuclear club.

Where will the mankind go? To a bright future or to an abyss of despair, that is, a total destruction of themselves?

Does anyone remember the USA testing the largest non-nuclear bomb on Afghan peaople? Does anyone know the USA's nuclear missiles are now a ticking bomb under the Greenland ice sheet? Does anyone know the USA keep their useless, dangerous, the old cold war nuclear weapons in countries like Turkey, Italy, the Netherlands and Germany...?

No. Please tell us about it in detail including the data and place of use. Also fill us in on these nuclear weapons under the Greenland ice sheet. Where did you find out all this fascinating information? Be specific and detailed with your reply.

It is a survival guarantee more than anything. It guarantees your enemy will suffer so much destruction they would not dare attack you. Rational countries don't want to risk losing whole cities to war. In that regard they have probably prevented several wars that otherwise would have occurred.

Donald Trump planned to abolish the 1987 Intermediate Ballistic missile treaty signed by Regan and Gorbachev and he planned to deploy ballistic missiles in Asia, so why should China sitting idle without response!

Desert Tortoise,

So in your opinion, North Korea is rightfully developing nuclear weapons and missiles to carry them for "a survival guarantee" (to quote your words)?
