Arms Race … !
By: Aatizah Fareed
When we observe the world it is full of natural and man made resources.
The resource on one side being a cause of benefits but on the other side we see these become the cause of destruction.
Among the beneficial resources there comes cars, aeroplanes, electrical appliances or many other useful things and among the other destructive things on which i m going to talk is weapons .
We see how arms race between the countries is developing at an alarming rate day by day. We hear stories about making of new weapons by countries. We hardly hear the news that a particular country has taken steps to develop education, social or economic infrastructure. The weapons are actual threat to world peace and as much time the race will continue we can never attain world peace. These arms create such type of wreck from which a country can hardly survive or can’t even stand. When these arms are used to wage wars against any other country they cause a lot of destruction and also the gases released from them is injurious as it causes death of humans, animals and also plants cant grow under these conditions.
Countries spend huge amount of money on producing new weapons. Thousands of scientists, workers, engineers devote their precious time on these waste activities. Instead they can use this time to kill diseases like malaria, cancer etc and the money spend on them could be also used to completely vanish poverty, illetracey etc.
So, the making of armaments is not that road whose destiny is prosperous but it is that road whose fate reaches wreck, hatred and violence. In order to make the country developed and full of peace our initial stpe must be to walk on the road which is far away from arms race so that we can live without any fear.
