Atomic Bomb a Political Weapon
The atomic bomb was first created in the early twentieth century. Physicists in the
United States and Europe had discovered that the fission of uranium could be used to
create a deadly explosive weapon. The amount of energy that was released by this

nuclear weapons. Many other nations, however, are thought to have the capability to
assemble these items. The only times that nuclear weapons were used in a conflict
between nations was near the end of World War II, in an attempt to get Japan to surrender
to the United States. The first atomic bomb was dropped on the Japanese city of
Hiroshima. The bomb that was dropped on this city killed thousands of people.
Nuclear bombs today pose a threat to those who do not have it and also those who

because people are more educated about radiation, cost of building a nuclear bomb

During WW2, when the atomic bomb was created no one knew the tremendous impacts that it would have on a country. Today, our society has better knowledge and
understanding of nuclear war through education. When used properly, the atomic bomb destroys anything in its proximity, then the radiation that is released and expose to humans
and creatures are very deadly. When it is expose in human body in kills blood cells and eventually causes cancer.
