Trump and the bomb

The Myths of August, A Personal Exploration of Our Tragic Cold War Affair with the Atom by Stewart L. Udall.

“It has been nearly a half-century since Hiroshima. Although several nations have manufactured nuclear weapons–and there have been many major military conflicts during this interval–the United States stands alone as the only country to have used atomic bombs as instruments of war. The history of the world’s restraint since Hiroshima offers real hope, for it proffers evidence that the moral opinion of mankind is real and exerts a powerful influence on the leaders of modern nations.”

But not on Donald J. Trump.
