It is not justify to just give this right to particular countries. Why would you allow one country to have the weapons but not the other? We all know how the countries that have nuclear weapons play. They use this as a threat and no country have the weapon to counter them. They possess the most powerful weapon on earth so they become the most "powerful" country and if only certain countries be the "powerful ones", there'll be no balance and threat everywhere. I really do believe that this kind of right should be restricted to only certain countries.

the only thing stopping world powers from nuking their enemies is threat of destruction. if a country gains nukes and the leader had no regard for the safety and continued existence of his country then he will have no hesitation and will nuke the world.

nuclear ownership is not a right to any country whether it's US or n.korea . that is because
"A human life holds more weight than that of the earth.
Nuclear weapons and humans cannot coexist.
Peace cannot be derived from a hateful heart."
