The peace weapon!!

He designed the neutron bomb using pencil, paper and a slide rule given to him by his father for his 15th birthday.
And then went on to feel:
"It's the most sane and moral weapon ever devised
It's the only nuclear weapon in history that makes sense in waging war. When the war is over, the world is still intact."
 A peace medal given to him by Pope John Paul I,1999
A jew by birth with the inherited ingenious brains. Imagine neutron radiations and the nuclear fusion chain reactions being perceived as peaceful just because they cause less visible destruction to the surroundings and the soldiers deserve to pay a price for what they chose or rather are sent for!! 
Thankfully the "cold war" was actually without any action that we could not see the weapon`s repurcussions.
Then perhaps Einstein missed the peace Nobel Prize by a few years, considering his origins/stature and his pioneering  Theory of Relativity.Or that the Photoelectric effect won the race...
