|Well as long as it doesn't affect Trump Hotels, who cares?|
One of the few bi-partisan areas of agreement in U. S. policy is that nuclear weapons should be decreased not increased. Both the U. S. and Russia have enough nukes to kill everything on earth (well maybe not cockroaches and that thing on Trump's head). But aparently that is not enough for an ignorant President elect, who wants to build more nukes and engage in an arms race.
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — President-elect Donald J. Trump said on Thursday that the United States should greatly “expand its nuclear capability,” appearing to suggest an end to decades of efforts by presidents of both parties to reduce the role of nuclear weapons in American defenses and strategy.
Part of the motivation here is to replace older nuclear weapons. Now we have no idea what happens to nuclear weapons over time, but do not think they lose their potency. And once you can kill everything 2 or 3 times exactly what is the motivation to up that number? But remember everyone, we are dealing with policy ignorance at a level never seen before, so expect insanity.
