原爆忌と核抑止 Aniversary of A-Bomb and Nuclear Deterrence






Today is the 69th anniversary of Nagasaki's Atomic bomb. 

We now live in the world under the nuclear deterrence, where the power of nations depends on the number of atomic bombs; All the permanent members of the UN Security Council have atomic bombs. 

The tragedy of Hiroshima and Nagasaki should not be repeated, but as we hope so the nuclear deterrence ironically becomes effective; Whereas Hiroshima and Nagasaki are likely to prevent the world from suffering from nuclear war, they can enlarge the influence of the nations with nuclear weapons. 

If Japan attacks New York City, another city of Japan will clearly be added in the list of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. That is why no one is thinking of attacking New York City. This is what is called nuclear deterrence, which may be the true reason that the world has never had nuclear war since Hiroshima and Nagasaki suffered. If so, it may be this inconvenient reality that actually makes it much more difficult to abolish nuclear weapons in the world.
