I agree that nukes should never be used again but just consider Germany or Japan being the first to strike back during WW2..

Except, that when the bomb was dropped Germany was out of the war and Japan was nowhere near developing an atom bomb or the means to deliver it. The Japanese were prepared to surrender at that point.
