Since 1945 there have been numerous international confrontations as tense as those that precipitated the Second World War£¬ and yet no large-scale conflict has resulted. To explain this, some argue that fear of enomous destruction such as the Second World War produced has had a dramatic deterrent effect.
¡¡¡¡Which of the following .if true£¬ most seriously weakens the deterrent theory mentioned above?
¡¡¡¡A. After the First World War£¬ the fear of great future destruction was as intense as it was after the Second World War.
¡¡¡¡B. Psychologists have detemined that fear of retaliation tends to temper aggressiveness among human beings.
¡¡¡¡C. The Second World War was far less destractive than most people gen- erally believe.
¡¡¡¡D. Fear of repeating the levels of destructions that the Second World War produced is as pervasive today as it was forty years age.
¡¡¡¡E. Many of the international confrontations that have occurred since 1945 have involved countries that participated in the Second World War.

Its B.

We do not know if WW1 was as destructive as WW2, so we cant say that even though WW1 was destructive it dint stop WW2 from happening.

I agree with B.

B is simply saying that the fear of retaliation (hence the eventual destruction) will lead to more destructive tendencies.

B

they say fear of destruction, but really it's fear of retaliation (not necessarily militarily).



A doesn't say anything.

Late but A.

If fear of destruction prior to WWII was as great as after the WWII and WWII still took place, then that is not the reason preventing people from going into WWIII. There must be some other reason.
