  1. Both answers are correct.

    We all make some decisions based on several facts.

  2. The U.S. used the atomic bomb over 65 years ago. Although several nations have atomic weapons, no one has used them since 1945.

    Is it possible that by demonstrating the horror of this weapon, that the U.S. has prevented any more such atrocities?
