Machu Picchu and Nuclear Destruction

The trek to Machu Picchu is perhaps one of the most amazing experiences on the planet, especially judging by the number of tourists making the trip. Unfortunately, there is a toll to pay for allowing so many people to visit the site, and sadly most of these visitors are from out of the country. Such an amazing site needs to be preserved, and the locals need to have access as well. It's too bad the $40 million per year that the site generates will stand in the way of any helpful developments.

Preserving historic sites might not be all that important if the use of nuclear weapons commences. In this FP article, Former Secretary of Defense, Robert McNamara, describes the potential dangers of the U.S. nuclear arsenal, and his opinion that the country should move away from a foreign policy that involves the weapons of mass destruction.
