2)If you allow lots of machine to direct access the internet with
external ip they may pose a security risk.

How would that pose a risk that would not exist with NAT'ed machines?

there are multiple machines,so it might be possible that some of them
contains the vulnerable software or users are dumb enough?

At the risk of repeating myself: how would that pose a risk that would
not exist with NAT'ed machines?

also hope you understand difference between having a single ip to
attack and having multiple ips to attack :)

No, actually I fail to see a difference there. Please elaborate.
