The only way that how are nuclear weapons are destroyed that these anti-nuclear working group stay together and work together to get these powerful nuclear weapons destroyed. It's possible to destroy nuclear weapons but it is a very hard and dangerous job. Want to know how nuclear weapons are destroyed? These people work as a team by staying together, they also disable nuclear missile launching systems to prevent the nuclear weapons from being launched. They work very carefully to make sure that the nuclear weapon cannot make wide explosions. They destroy the missile very carefully so that the missile cannot make very huge nuke explosion. They also stop nuclear bombs from being dropped by making sure that the bomb is destroyed but they have to place something to destroy the nuclear bomb and they must be very careful because nuclear missiles and nuclear bombs are very powerful. There should be a time bomb to destroy these weapons and don't let these weapons create big explosions. If there is then they place the time bomb on nuclear weapon, they also have to move very far away from the weapon to make sure that they are safe and can't get killed. To destroy nuclear weapons, these nukes have to be sent very far away from the city or from the town so people can't get killed by the nukes.
nuclear deterrence - the idea that if you attack me with nuclear weapons then I will attack you back with nuclear weaponsmutual assured destruction - the idea that if you attack me with nuclear weapons then I will totally destroy you with nuclear weapons and if I attack you with nuclear weapons then you will totally destroy me with nuclear weapons - thus any nuclear attack by either party will result in the certain destruction of both parties

In the most basic sense, proliferation of nuclear weapons is the spread of nuclear weapons and weapons usable technology in the world.
