If you made it to this point in this presentation, there’s a small chance you’re saying to yourself, “Wow, that’s really cool what he did when he was a soldier.” Warning that you may find the following unsettling, but feeling it so important enough that I willingly accept the risk of upsetting you, here I offer a reminder of the exact nature of "Weapons of Mass Destruction." I think it only fair.


“I HAVE BECOME DEATH, DESTROYER OF WORLDS”

ENTER


Nuclear and thermonuclear reactions are integral to the very fabric of existence. Nuclear weapons are mechanisms designed to focus these elemental forces of nature for the purpose of death and destruction. They possess no sense of morality. They have no concept of history. As with all machines of war, after these devices have been used, and their masters exhausted to the point peace is granted temporary prevalence, human beings will take time to argue “wisdom vs. folly,” “right vs. wrong,” “good vs. evil,” and, how to justify doing terrible things in the name of righteousness. I cannot settle these debates, of course, but I do know that never in human history have the dead been allowed a part in these discussions.


Here are some WWW sites which will provide you with further information about "special weapons" and their history.
