How to use nuclear in a sentence?

  1. Cory Gardner:

    In conversations I’ve had with allies in the region, nobody believes that [ Iran has ] given up their nuclear weapons ambition.

  2. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu:

    It does not roll back Iran's nuclear program. It keeps a vast nuclear infrastructure in place. Not a single centrifuge is destroyed. Not a single nuclear facility is shut down, including the underground facilities that they built illicitly. Thousands of centrifuges will keep spinning, enriching uranium, that's a very bad deal.

  3. Tom Malinowski:

    Regardless of the outcome of the Iran talks, we are going to continue to speak up and stand out and stand up for human rights in Iran, if any sanctions are lifted as a result of a nuclear deal, the human rights-related sanctions will remain in place.

  4. President Trump:

    If we end up with that gridlock, I would say, ‘ If you can, Mitch McConnell, go nuclear,'.

  5. Bryan Clark:

    At the end of WWII we did not have an undersea advantage. The Germans had developed submarines with snorkels and the US was searching for how they would deal with them. The new subs could avoid radar detection and were quiet when using their batteries. Then, nuclear submarines came along. Passive sonar worked really well against them because they make noise continuously. Passive sonar works well against nuclear submarines and is less effective against diesels.
