Should Any Nation Have Nuke Weapons?
During the Cold War, all over the U.S., a fear spread from east to west. Although this war is now over, this fear of nuclear weapons hasn't left the American people. In fact, according to the article, "Poll: No Nation Should Have Nuke Weapons," most Americans think that it is likely we will be attacked by terrorists or a nation with nukes within the next five years. It's interesting to note that two-thirds of Americans say that no nation should be allowed to have nuclear weapons, including the U.S.. I wonder if most of the people who were part of this survey were recently scared into beleiving this by the media. Would everyone be so scared if the media didn't poke it's nose into everything? Yes, it's nice to know that nukes do exists but does everyone need to know all that we know about everything. It certainly gets our attention. But isn't that what the media is going for? That is how they stay in business. The more extreme the news, the more attention they draw to themselves.
