I feelimpelledto speak today in a languagethat in a
sense is new-one which I, who have spent somuch of my
life in the military profession, would havepreferred never to
use. That new language is the language ofatomic warfare.
The atomic age has moved forwardat such a pacethat
every citizen of the worldshouldhavesome comprehension,
at least in comparative terms, of the extent ofthis
development of the utmost significance to everyone of us.
Clearly, if the peoples of the world are toconduct an
intelligent search for peace, they must bearmed with the
significant facts of today's existence. Atomicbombs today
are more than 25 times as powerful as theweapons with
which the atomic age dawned, while hydrogenweapons are
in the ranges of millions of tons of TNTequivalent. Today,
the United States' stockpile of atomic weapons,which, of
course, increases daily, exceeds by many limesthe explosive
equivalent of the total of all bombs and allshells that came
from every plane and every gun in every theatreof war in all
of the years of World War II.
Surely no sane member of the human race coulddiscover
victory in such desolation. Could anyone wishhis name to be
coupled by history with such human degradationand
destruction? Occasional pages of history dorecord the faces
of the “Great Destroyers” but the whole book ofhistory
reveals mankind's never-ending quest for peace.It is with the
book of history, and not with isolated pages,that the United
States will ever wish to be identified.My country wants to be
constructive, notdestructive.Itwants agreements, not wars,
among nations. It wants itself to live infreedom, and in the
confidence that the people of every othernation enjoy
equally the right of choosing their own way oflife.
So my country's purpose is tohelpus move out of the
dark chamber of horrors into the light, to finda way by
which the minds of men, the hopes of men, thesouls of men
everywhere, can move forward toward peace andhappiness
and well being.
文章从一开始指出impelled to，被驱使，到第二段提到每个人都需了解atomic warfare的发展程度，到最后段表达了美国的作用等等，都表明了对这个问题的重视。C正确。
