Nuclear weapons have been around now for more than 70 years.  I would argue very strongly that the only reason the USSR and the USA did not fight each other in a land war is because both sides possessed nuclear weapons.  And they are probably preventing a war between India and Pakistan.

In any event, you are not going to put the genie back in the bottle and forget how to make them.
