I hope it's obvious that this is NOT how things went down.

Only parts that are somewhat true:
Bohr and Einstein were both rivals who strongly disagreed, but also held each other in high regard and loved having long discussions because they considered each other equals.

Bohr created the theory that made the atomic bomb possible, which he felt bad about because he had hoped it would be for peaceful use only. He somewhat helped in the Manhattan Project but was quoted for saying "That is why I went to America. They didn't need my help in making the atom bomb" and only acted as consultant. Russians tried to get him to tell how the bomb was made, but he didn't know.

Einstein told Roosevelt that he had to make the bomb in case Hitler was making one too, but it would probably have happened even if Einstein had said nothing.

For the rest of his life Bohr tried to get US and UK to share the atomic secrets, but Churchill was very much against it and said Bohr should be locked up.

Geniuses creates something they hope can be used for good.

Fools takes that which is made and uses it for the only thing that they know of: To destroy all else.

Bloody Winnie Church-the-Pooh! А, впрочем, и без Нильса Бора атомную бомбу завели, так что ничего страшного!

It's also worth pointing out that in the 50s Eisenhower approved the use of up to three nukes to level Hanoi and other Viet Minh positions in the Indochina War to bail out France. The deal was conditional on Britain also approving it, and Britain refused to even consider it, that plan (Operation Vulture) was the closest the US ever came to authorizing the use of nukes in conventional warfare

I'm sorry for not being a science nerd or have a creative thinking but HOW THE FUCK DID A THING THAT CAN INCENERATE EVERYTHING IN ITS WAKE CAN BE USED FOR PEACE!!!! As long as u have that kind of brain to make destructive shit like that government won't leave u alone & it'll only cause more damage than the creator could've imagine doesn't take a genius to know that!!! "Oh look i'm too sucked up in the process of theory/formula writing of weapon i didn't know it'd come to this maybe I can try interfere with the country leader here & there maybe they'll listen " well guess what they don't!! And now the warlords decide to use the bomb to destroy each other while involving others innocence ppl in, u'll share those blood they had shed on your hand. Peace out

I think Bohr wanted the knowledge to be used for something like atomic energy, not bombs.
