    Nuclear weapons can kill a huge population like it did in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Its radiation lingers on for several years and a whole generation can be affected by the effects of radiation. It is the most efficient weapon a country can have.

    With Nuclear weapon a war can be won in matter of days and hence military will love this weapon. Nuclear weapon supporters talk of detente. That is a country which has nuclear weapon will have a sort of insurance against enemy attack for fear of retaliation with nuclear weapon. Though this is partly true, since the predicted 3rd world war did not materialize in 60 year has some truth to this statement. But we cannot really depend on it since another Hitler can reverse this theory.

    Well, here is an interesting fact for you:

    Modern radiation tracing devices will either register all kinds of radiation (alpha, beta and gamma), or only gamma. The problem is that gamma radiation can go right through your body, without doing much damage. Beta radiation is a whole different deal, and alpha is even worse.

    Basically, alpha radiation kills you even if you receive a tiny dose. The good part is that it doesn't go too far, even a set of thick clothes will be enough to stop it. But if you get , say, under alpha-active rain, you're goner. Chances are, you won't even have enough time to get a cancer.

    Beta is the golden middle. It requires a lot more protection, but the lethal dosage is a lot higher.

    Fact: Nuclear weapons kill.

    Fact: Life isn't compatible with nuclear radiation released from the use of nuclear weapons.

    Fact: Normal non-hardened Electronics are not compatible with the Electro-Magnetic Pulse (EMP) of a nuclear weapon.

    Fact: It is possible to dirty the atmosphere enough by using nuclear weapons to create "nuclear winter".

    Opinion: All life is unique, all life is precious, nuclear weapons are not compatible with life and therefore should be eliminated.

    Bamboo plants can withstand exposure.
