Nuclear War - The Destroyer Of Worlds

We have watched many movies depicting the destruction of human kind through global warming, aliens, viral mutations, biological and nuclear war. With nation after nation rushing to develop their own nuclear and biological weapons, more humans have their fingers on the button of world destruction than ever. So far Britain, China, France, India, Pakistan, Russia and the United States have acknowledged that they have nuclear weapons. It is widely believed that Israel has nuclear capabilities and North Korea and Iran are currently seeking to develop nuclear weapons. Below, J.Robert Openheimer laments over his role in the creation of the Atomic Bomb and quotes a Hindu scripture from the Bhagavad Gita: "Now I am Become Death, The Destroyer Of Worlds." A perfect example of the tragedy of genius.
