" President Dwight D. Eisenhower was determined to solve "the fearful atomic dilemma" by finding some way by which "the miraculous inventiveness of man" would not be dedicated to his death, but consecrated to his life." In his "Atoms for Peace" speech before the United Nations on December 8, 1953, Eisenhower sought to solve this terrible problem by suggesting a means to transform the atom from a scourge into a benefit for mankind...Eisenhower's Atoms for Peace speech embodied his most important nuclear initiative as President. From it sprang a panoply of peaceful atomic programs. With it Eisenhower placed the debate over the control of nuclear science and technology, which had largely been the province of government officials and contractors, squarely before the public. Eisenhower's Atoms for Peace speech reflected his deep concern about "Atoms for War." The escalating nuclear arms race between the United States and the Soviet Union, which included the development of thermonuclear bombs, brought Eisenhower to the United Nations. Since Hiroshima, the destructive power of nuclear weapons had increased dramatically. Nuclear weapons technology, thus far a product of American expertise, would also eventually enter the arsenals of the Soviet Union through the normal processes of technological development. Eisenhower felt a moral imperative to warn the American people and the world of this new reality.Please ask all questions and review all photosNo returns accepted
