David Montgomery Posted over 2 years ago Is an engineer morally responsible for harm caused by their creations? You need to study history...not the bull crap you learned in the Liberal Universities. Germany was on the threshold of developing the Bomb. And, there was a submarine carrying those developments to Japan. If Germany had completed the development and Japan had built the Bomb do you not believe that they would have used it against us? If we do not develop, test, and build ever increasingly effective weapons the other side will. But, to answer your question...the developers and builders knew exactly who the Bombs were to be used against. "Those who beat their guns into plows will plow for those that did not." Thomas Jefferson. "I own a gun not because I want kill...I have it because I want to live." If you really feel so strong about weapons, place a sign in you front window, or on your front lawn, that reads: "This is a gun-free home." I dare you.
