North Korea VS USA

Imagine one morning waking up and you see on the news that war has begun. The technology that can be used in war has drastically changed over the years. Nuclear weapons are not an idea but a real possibility. All it takes is on person to have a slight feeling that they are going to be attacked and then they can let loose their nuclear weapons. What scares me the most is how many countries actually have access to this kind of weaponry and how many are willing to use it. I chose this article because it almost seems unreal. How many times do you see these kinds of situations in movies? They never end well in movies therefore I could only imagine how bad they would end in reality. This article is about North Korea trying to start peace talks with the USA after having thrown threats to them for the last while. If just one of these weapons is used it could send out planet into nuclear waarfare which could lead to the end of us as a race.
The ethical issue is whether anyone should have the right to these extremely dangerous weapons or not.
Should any nation be allowed to own nuclear weapons?
Some would say this kind of weaponry is essential simply because it exists and if you don’t have it then you will be vulnerable to the other countries who own it. They must level the playing field to avoid being walked all over.
Some believe these weapons are simply a part of the evolution of technology. There is no way to stop countries from manufacturing and researching these weapons its in our genes as humans to strive for the most efficient products to facilitate life and for a soldier or country the most efficient way to take out the opponent is definitely with nuclear weapons.
How would you propose to put an end to these weapons of destruction that could ultimately lead to end of our existence?
