Whose Bomb Is It Anyway?

August 10, 2021

When you study nuclear weapons, you realize after a while that all nuclear programs look pretty much the same. It’s the same technology around the world after all. And the same terrible threat of destruction. These programs are the same in one slightly ironic way, too: Every country with the bomb thinks it is special, that it is different. Every President, Prime Minister or Supreme Leader with a bomb says the same thing: all nuclear weapons are terrible, except my own. Those are just for defense. But they’re wrong. They’re all bad. All nuclear weapons programs are the same. Think you can tell them apart?
