But the last one we usually put into the nuke club is North Korea, and that's more nebulous because they desperately want to have nuclear weapons, and they jump up and down and try to convince everybody that they have nuclear weapons and they're like hey look at us, look at us, we got nuclear weapons. We're gonna launch some shit at somebody pay attention to us, look at us, look at us we're like a little child, we need attention. The problem is that they have tested something, but we're not really sure what. They've blown some shit up underground before but no one's sure if it's actually a nuclear weapon and even if they have one no one's that convinced that they could get it anywhere because they don't have a delivery mechanism. So even if they have something the only thing they could do is like put their nuclear bomb in a canoe and try to roll it to Japan or some shit. It's just, we don't know. North Korea is so secretive, there's no inspections there, nobody really knows even though they kind of say, yes we do. They want everybody to know they have nuclear weapons or at least think they do so that they can pump their chest up and look important in the world so in Newark Korea and Israel almost two opposite sides of the nuclear spectrum of, we got them that are being quiet about them and we're not sure that they've got it, but they're being very loud about it. Alright, that's the nuke club. All in review now, the United States, Russia, the United Kingdom, France, China India, Pakistan, Israel, North Korea. Of all of those countries and you should dedicate this to memory. The United States and Russia have the overwhelming number of nuclear warheads, I mean there ain't even a close third. I don't even know who number three is and it don't matter. It's probably China or the UK and it don't even matter because this, the US and Russia, have like 80 or 90% of all the nuclear weapons on planet earth because of course it was a product of the Cold War that these two countries were competing with each other and building up these arsenal's, and they have how many bombs? They have a hundred bombs and we need 101. What? They've got 101 we need 102, well we need A thousand and two, well we need 3,002, well we need a 1 million and 10

and that's how these two countries ended up with so much weapons capacity though on the nuclear front. Okay, alright. That's the members. What are the rules of the game? How does it all work? Obviously, the original five and that's the P_5, declared nuclear powers, built up their weapon systems again because of the competition during the Cold War. There's not a lot of countries or even the existing five that are building more right this second, however, everybody or a lot of countries on planet Earth have in the past thought about making nuclear weapons or in the present are thinking about having nuclear energy and all of this nuclear material is needed to do all this stuff.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
