Nuclear Power

Nuclear power is the use of sustained exothermic nuclear processes to generate heat and electricity. The term includes the use of exothermic nuclear fission, nuclear decay and nuclear fusion reactions. Presently the nuclear fission of elements in the actinide series of the periodic table produce the vast majority of nuclear power in the service of humankind, with nuclear decay processes, primarily in the form of geothermal energy, and radioisotope thermoelectric generators, in niche uses making up the rest. As of 2013, attaining a net energy gain from sustained nuclear fusion reactions, excluding natural fusion power sources such as the Sun, remains an area of active physics and engineering research.

Given that the Americans are the only country (to date) to attack another country with nuclear weapons, do they have any right to try and decide whether other countries should gain nuclear capabilities?
