Before I can explain to you, what could happen if we used nuclear bombs during the
Vietnam War, you must know the effects of their everlasting damage. There are few people that
take a large number of these bombs to cause mass destruction.
When a nuclear bomb detonates there is an intense burst of light, just as fast a lightning
were looking that way. An enormous pulse of heat radiation follows, causing combustible material
been killed by the blast itself. After the flash of bright light, a fireball arises from point of impact,
towards the bomb, could also be temporarily or permanently blinded.
The last thing you should know about the detonation is the extremely powerful shockwave
that follows. The shockwave is so brutal it can destroy reinforced concrete buildings up to 2 km
away. While most houses made of wood and brick would be demolished if they were within 8 km.
There would be major damage to houses within 14 km, and a lot of broken windows as far out as
30 km. At 8 km about 50% of the people would of perished due to the blast.
I don t think the U.S. could of afford to use the nuclear bombs. If we chose to use the
nuclear bombs, the countries exporting to the U.S. would completely stopped or slowed trade.
The U.S. cannot survive on its own. We need other countries to replenish the wants and needs the
U.S. cannot provide.
Also the aftermath effects of the bomb could cause a worldwide increase in cancer, and
death. The radiation would contaminate once useful land, into land we may never use again. The
earthquakes do in the U.S.
I think that if we chose to use nuclear bombs during that time, it would of make the U.S.
seem irresponsible. There would be many alternate solutions, than using the nuclear bombs. Why
U.S. takes to overcome its differences when trying to prevent war and hatred by making peace
with another nation.
