    Well it is rational actually, whts lacking is trust..And rightly so

    If I arrange to meet you in a knife fight to the death, and you know I have access to guns, will you just leave yours at home?..

    Guess its same with nuclear weapons, I say will destroy all, do you believe me?

    That'll be infringing on their first amendment, if you think Americans are anal and touchy over the second amendment try upsetting on their 1A.

    Rational in that: Country A doesn't dare to nuke Country B, cos the first strike can't KO Country B, and Country B can retaliate nuke and hurt A just as much. The rationality is that both A and B don't want to die/suffer. MAD fails when you have irrational players like Iran/NKorea.

    Well, the US had nukes. Didn't (well, almost) use it in Vietnam.
    And we have SALT/START and other stuff to limit nukes.
