The third world war......??????????????????????

“I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.”

Albert Einstein 

Well it’s not that Joseph Stalin or Winston Churchill that stopped the Second World War. It was bunch of quantum physic scientist that ended the World War II. Since 1942, more than 100,000 scientists of the Manhattan Project had been working on the bomb’s development. At the time, it was the largest collective scientific effort ever undertaken. 
It involved 37 installations across the US, 13 university laboratories and a host of prestigious participants such as the Nobel prizewinning physicists Arthur Holly Compton and Harold Urey. Directed by the Army's chief engineer, Brigadier General Leslie R. Groves, the Manhattan Project was also the most secret wartime project in history. At first, scientists worked in isolation in different parts of the US, unaware of the magnitude of the project in which they were involved. Later, the project was centralized and moved to an isolated laboratory headed by physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer in Los Alamos, New Mexico. On 16 July 1945, scientists carried out the first trial of the bomb in the New Mexico desert. President Truman received news of the successful test whilst negotiating the post-war settlement in Europe at the Potsdam Conference.

Albert Einstein directly did not  involve in Manhattan Project, But as we shall see, he was instrumental in facilitating its development.

In 1905, as part of his Special Theory of Relativity, he made the intriguing point that a large amount of energy could be released from a small amount of matter. This was expressed by the equation E=mc2 (energy = mass times the speed of light squared). The atomic bomb would clearly illustrate this principle.

But bombs were not what Einstein had in mind when he published this equation. Indeed, he considered himself to be a pacifist. In 1929, he publicly declared that if a war broke out he would "unconditionally refuse to do war service, direct or indirect... regardless of how the cause of the war should be judged." (Ronald Clark, "Einstein: The Life and Times", pg. 428). His position would change in 1933, as the result of Adolf Hitler's ascent to power in Germany. While still promoting peace, Einstein no longer fit his previous self-description of being an "absolute pacifist".

Einstein's greatest role in the invention of the atomic bomb was signing a letter to President Franklin Roosevelt urging that the bomb be built. The splitting of the uranium atom in Germany in December 1938 plus continued German aggression led some physicists to fear that Germany might be working on an atomic bomb.

 Among those concerned were physicists Leo Szilard and Eugene Wigner. But Szilard and Wigner had no influence with those in power. So in July 1939 they explained the problem to someone who did: Albert Einstein. According to Szilard, Einstein said the possibility of a chain reaction "never occurred to me", altho Einstein was quick to understand the concept after consulting with Einstein; in August 1939 Szilard wrote a letter to President Roosevelt with Einstein's signature on it. The letter was delivered to Roosevelt in October 1939 by Alexander Sachs, a friend of the President. Germany had invaded Poland the previous month; the time was ripe for action. That October the Briggs Committee was appointed to study uranium chain reactions.

I’m not sure who told this but I got to knew this from a very close friend, But is a nice idea, “in human body when we have a high blood pressure in the brain nothing works except the brain. I guess this is very true with Albert Einstein. His brain worked more than anyone else in the world. The atomic bomb caused to thousands of innocence civilians in Japan.

There is another extension of the same idea and that is my most preferred part. “When there is a high blood pressure in a male pennies   man is practical catatonic and that highly pressurized pennies control everything without any exception. This is also true with Albert Einstein, he was married to his first cousin, and still there are several custodian battles with his legitimate and illegitimate children. This is common with great people who have great mistakes.

All what I’m talking is rubbish, because my brain too also gone into dis- functionality, due to various external forces. Only thing I can do is sleeping with the hope of nice dreams,

But I could not see dreams. The Russian President Vladimir Putin recently said “I t s that god can forgive terrorist   , but I will be helping them meet the god”

That is not a Joke by An Idiot; President Putin is a man of his word. Didn’t he kick his wife and out 
of the presidential palace and married that seductive gymnastic gold medalist in Olympic.

Why I can’t sleep peacefully with all this, 30 years of We Sri Lankans spent our lives with a war of our own brothers? Who wants another war? OH god help me to sleep peacefully………………….
