  2. So exactly what is the purpose of nuclear weapons?

    What is retribution? What is cutting industrial capacity called?

    Human rights have one meaning in courtrooms, and law seminars, but history indicates other things in war.

    Seldom is anyone prosecuted on the winning side, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Calley

    The answer to your question lies in moral philosophy, not history, nor law.
