Wastelands or Wetlands?

Out of the mouths of babes. The apple does not fall far from the tree! Enjoy!

"Why do people create nuclear power? And why are people using it for wars right now? This blogger explains what he thinks about it. Well for starters why is it even used for weapons? This destroys the entire envirnment into a wasteland. Now we’re having problems with some certain countries in Europe and Asia such as China, Iran, and Iraq, to this blogger’s knowledge. China has been picking on Taiwan, an ally of the U.S., while developing nuclear weapons. China has been threatening Taiwan that they will attack them if they don’t become part of China. This blogger is afraid they will hurt the people of China and our friend.

Iran has been enemies with a place called Israel for thousands of years. With that being said let us get to the main part. Iran has crazy people they will attack Israel with nuclear power, and Israel is where we get a lot of gas. Without Israel gas will go up to $5.00 a gallon. Iraq will fight with nuclear power as well, except that our American soldiers currently serving the USA will be destroyed with nuclear power.

This blogger says that we should have debates with these countries and see if these factory’s need to be bombed or protected. As much as violence is not a means to an end it will be worth it to save people later in the world, not to mention that water, trees, animals, and life is much better to look at than a big empty crater."

An added note to this post...remember to think as a curious 11 year old would think. This little apple is trying to expand his very limited knowledge about the war in Iraq and in this country as we try to combat terrorism. The schools are not talking about it until the "war" ends. If you read the last paragraph carefully then you'll know the "apple" is suggesting peaceful debates versus war would be the best option. Getting rid of the "nuclear factories" in some way is in his mind a better solution because he thinks it would "save all mankind" from death and devastation. How we are able to contain the nuclear factories is anyone's guess!

Excuse me if I am confused. An 11 year old said, "Bomb them first?"

The awareness of (or confusion about) the connection between nuclear power and nuclear weapons is to be noted. Our nuclear power people have been trying to unlink those two technologies for a long time. They are connected for many of us.

Be careful of apple trees, youngster. BWXT and AREVA come in many tempting flavors.

Thank you for your comment. I hope to clear up the confusion. I don't want to bomb anyone I just want to get rid of the factories that are making the weapons. I plan to read and look up more information on the difference between the weapons and power of nuclear technology. I guess the big thing is not to let these weapons be used against anyone becuase of the damage it does.

I am not sure how these links about nuclear power and nuclear weapons will pass along via a blog comment, but I thought I would give it a try. These are some links to pro and con information. There is a lot more out there. You have to be able to look at the information carefully because there may be some things that are not correct. (Just like with the city council election.)

Nuclear technology is a BIG topic of debate and has been for many years. Some people think that nuclear power, in addition to other problems of radiation and waste disposal, makes it easier for lots of people to make nuclear weapons. We already know that lots of people (even the US government) are concerned that too many countries already have or might have nuclear weapons. One nuclear bomb can cause a lot of problems as we found out when the US bombed Japan twice many years ago.

Maybe your mom can help you learn how to turn these into direct links so someone can easily just click on them. I don't know how to do that yet! Lucky you, learning about the Internet right from the start.

Thank you Mr. Bassett. We have added the links to the blog site and will review the info together. And, thank you for taking the time to find the websites and pass them along.

I'm guessing you rejected the third URL I mentioned since you did not add it with the other two. I would say the two you posted are biased in favor of the pro-establishment while the one you left off is biased in favor of the anti-establishment. You need to be aware of both points of view, search for the truth and come to your own conclusions.

So, don't ignore:

Thanks again. Finding lots of interesting stuff on the sites. We have to browse each site to find the exact info you posted in your comments but that's okay. I've got a lot of learning to do.
