Atomic weapons are an overly powerful of a weapon for anybody, or any country to have access to. Safety protocols allow it impossible for nuclear weapons to be harmful when not fired. Wrong! The problems with atomic weapons begin even before they're used. Just in transportation, nuclear weapons have been shown to be harmful. On a number of distinct occasions there's been accidents linked to nuclear weapons even if they aren't being used. In transportation of those weapons if something were to go wrong the only real way to insure the safest outcome is to have the bomb blown up in the air. This has occurred several cases. In the waters from Washington, a US submarine inadvertently opened a valve releasing 500 gallons of polluted water into the ocean. In 1956 a nuclear weapon has been dropped accidentally on transport. The bomb detonated upon impact on the floor. It left a crater full of radioactivity. These are only two of dozens of accidents dating back from the 1940s to today.

In 2003 during testing there was an explosion. It was th...
