/ In short: Whoever shoots first dies second.” (Gaddis, 1982) Having this in place prevents the act of the atomic bomb; however the technology is there if needed. The first use of the atomic bomb was after the attack on Pearl Harbor at Hiroshima and Nagasaki. After seeing the destruction of the atomic bomb creates it was then a lesson learned of the damage it can cause as well as ended the war. This would be compared to David and Goliath by having knowledge is the greatest key in winning a battle. Without the technology of the atomic bomb who knows where we would be today. In conclusion when we think about David cutting off Goliath’s head we think its gruesome just as the Japanese thought the atomic bomb was a cruel and unusual form of punishment they were both something that had to be done to protect their people. David uses God as his guidance as we used technology to form atomic bombs. Having these weapons and knowledge makes us the free country we have today. The sacrifices made by many make us the strong country we are today.
