How did we go so wrong?

Here is some information I digged up. Needless to say, I am very disappointed with our country.

There were over 60,000 nuclear weapons between the US and Russia resulting from the Cold War.

There are somewhere between 20,000 and 30,000 major US cities/towns and there are 1100-1200 major Russian cities/towns.
30,000 + 1200 = 31,200 cities total
60,000 - 31,200 = 28,800 nuclear weapons left over.

So lets add some more places . . .

If you were to add all of the cities/towns in Europe you would have just over 28,800 cities.

So, in conclusion . . .

With 60,000 nuclear bombs we could take out all of the United States, Russia and Europe.

Is this needed?
Of course not!

Granted, it has gone down in recent years, however, the number (near 3,500) is still too large. To think that we could have at one time had over 30,000 is astonishing ans sad. There needs to be a change . . .

Wow. My face smiled. Not because this is good. Just because you said I'd be shocked.
