A short history of the American Soviet and British atomic bomb programs and their effect on society and culture The dramatis personae are Szilard Oppenheimer Teller who is portrayed as someone truly demonic Gorbachev was right to refuse to shake his hand Fuchs Feynman Kurchatov Sakharov Zeldovich and Tamm Groves Truman Eisenhower Reagan Beria Khrushchev and Gorbachev Russell and the women at Greenham Common The United States the Soviet Union and Great Britain have all marched soldiers through a field soon after a nuclear explosion since the effects of radiation on them weren t studied DeGroot says that they weren t even guinea pigs they were sacrificial lambs The 1957 nuclear waste explosion at Kombinat Mayak and its effects on the health of the surrounding villagers is described and the troubles of the downwinders in Nevada The bomb made a great impact on popular culture from Tom Lehrer s songs DeGroot uotes from We Will All Go Together but Lehrer also wrote Who s Next and So Long Mom to Russell Hoban s Riddley Walker It brought out the bizarrest in both the government and society from a US government s recommendation that citizens escape the devastation of atomic bombardment on a cruise ship a critic charged that this amounts to saving Republicans at the expense of Democrats to a newlywed couple spending the honeymoon inside a fallout shelterI think that nuclear weapons did well as a deterrent despite all the mutual hatred between the Soviet Union and the United States they did not go to war with each other However now the United States has enemies deterrence against whom does not work They are willing to kill themselves for their cause as did the 911 hijackers and they are willing to kill innocent bystanders including Muslims as did the bombers who blew up the US embassies in Nairobi and Dar Es Salaam Saudis have committed terrorist acts on 9112001 should the United States have nuked Mecca Apparently somebody thinks so for somebody has bought the NUKE MECCA sticker but this person probably does not represent the US government This won t happen and the terrorists know this won t happen not that they would care if it did Therefore I think that nuclear weapons have outlived their usefulness in fact DeGroot uotes a US Air Force general who says the same thing President Nixon killed the US biological weapons program President Bush 41 killed the chemical weapons program I don t see anyone lamenting this I hope some future US President does the same with the nuclear weapons program agreeing with Russia and China to join I cannot imagine Bush 43 doing it
