The ring of power is not the atom bomb, except in the sense that notions of power and its corruption are universal. It's all about sin.

Once some saw Hitler, now perhaps some see Saddam or Bin Laden in the evil kingdom. And perhaps there is a comparison between the U.S. and its alliances with Frodo and his fellowship. The fellowship requires working through our many cultural and political differences to stand united against evil, as well as live together peacefully. And it is not enough to worry about the opposition's weapons. The ring's message could be that it will be a challenge for us to use or keep our destructive capabilities ourselves without turning into the same evil we oppose.
