kal-el said:Yes,nuclear assault is always wrong. But, I can see the wisdom in dropping it on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. IMO, Nuclear war is inevitable. It is simply a matter of time. Tick tock. Tick tock.
Its true that some military people might be saved but in the end whats worse? Losing soldiers or obliterating the middle east?

stsburns said:This is a useless topic. Just the fact no country in the world has ever used a Nuclear bomb. The bombs droped during WWII were atomic, which is a big difference. Then their is the all powerful Hydrogen Bomb, which has double the impact of a Atomic bomb.
Scarecrow Akhbar said:I've always been confused about that. So tell us, what IS the difference between a "nuclear" bomb and an "atomic" bomb?
Scarecrow Akhbar said:Losing a single AMERICAN soldier is a far greater crime than de-populating the entire middle east.
kal-el said:Why is that? Didn't "God" say in the Bible in Genesis that all men where created equal? What makes an American better than anyone else?
SKILMATIC said:Yes there is a difference. The methods in which they use to create fission in an atomic bomb is they use 2 different elemental liquids such as uranium and when they touch it causes a instability(fission) and thats the way that works in a nutshel. Its far more advanced and complicated than that even though it sounds easy. I just wont go over the whole thing cause it would literally take months.
Nuclear bombs are created by using a different more decisive and accurate way of causing fission. What they do is they take one element and they simulate a splitting of that elemental atom which causes fission far more powerful. In this case the lighter the element the more powerful the fission gets. In this case Hydrogen which is the lightest of all elements is used. However, there are nitrogen bombs and Oxygen bombs. But hydrogen is far more powerful. Now the way they increase the level of destruction is by using multiple "chain reactions." Which is basically the simulation of multiple rows of atom spliting which intensifies the blast abd radiation. Hope that helps
C.J. said:An atomic bomb is a nuclear bomb as is a hydrogen bomb, in other words there are two main types of nuclear bombs, atomic and hydrogen (There are several types of hydrogen bombs). The atomic bomb is a fission bomb, and the hydrogen bomb is a fusion bomb. The hydrogen bomb does use fission, but only as a trigger to ignite the hydrogen (Fusion). Basically a hydrogen bomb uses an atomic bomb (Fission) to ignite the hydrogen (Fusion). Hydrogen does not fission, it fuses, light nuclei are formed (fused) into heavier ones.
