Nuclear arsenal is no longer a deterrence but threat to human

Post MBA exam results, Group Discussion will be crucial for MBA admission so it is advised to read and practice with variety of topics. In following GD topic, you will be getting some points with divergent views which you can pick up and develop.  Today, you will read GD topic: 

"Nuclear arsenal is no longer a deterrence but threat to human race"
James Schlesinger, former US Defense Secretary, once said, “We use nuclear arms every day to deter our potential foes and provide reassurance to our allies whom we offer protection.” However, deterrence is possible only when one country is more powerful than another.
Before 1950, only the US and Russia possessed nuclear weapons. Since they were more powerful than other states, they were able to prevent other countries from going to war with them. However, the situation has changed now. More countries have access to nuclear technology, and at present, the UK, France, China, Belgium, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Turkey, India, Pakistan, North Korea and Israel possess nuclear weapons.
With so many countries gaining power over the years, the possession of nuclear arsenal no longer acts as deterrence but it is a threat to the human race. India and Pakistan have been at war for many decades and both the countries are equally powerful and not afraid of using nuclear arsenal to prove their power. 
When the US dropped atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945, it resulted in the death of more than 300,000 people. The nuclear arsenal possessed by a number of countries is more powerful than what it used to be in the past. Hence, the destructive power of nuclear arsenal is much more than decades ago.
After the US dropped an atomic bomb on Nagasaki, it became a city of death, where even the sound of insects could not be heard. That was how the US showed its power to Japan and the rest of the world. The political world is dynamic in nature. Nations that have been friends for decades can become enemies overnight. 
And since most of the countries have access to nuclear weapons, a slight disturbance in the political sphere can trigger a nuclear war. Terrorism is on the rise and if terrorist groups such as Al-Qaeda manage to get their hands on nuclear weapons, it can put an end to the human species.
With so many parties vying to be the most powerful in the world, it is no doubt that the possession of nuclear weapons is no longer a form of deterrence but a threat to the human race. It simply takes a spark to ignite the whole world. And the spark can occur in any form – distrust between countries or nuclear weapons reaching the hands of the terrorists. 
Albert Einstein was right to say that, “The splitting of the atom has changed everything save our modes of thinking, and thus we drift towards unparalleled catastrophe.”
