I can't believe what I'm hearing.
"We are on the verge of an exciting time".....?
"This type of weapon will insure our security for decades to come"....................Our nuclear arsenal certainly didn't deter 9/11.
Why don't we just blow up the friggin planet now and be done with it.........?
But you notice that no one has hit us with a nuclear, biological or chemical device, have you?
Keep in mind that what the Administration is proposing is merely what any consumer would do in their place:
When you have a car that is old and worn out and you are spending more on repairs than you believe is wise and its reliablity factor is suspect, what do you do?
Well, in the real world, you go out andget a new car. One more modern and up to date. One with a bunch of features that you would have liked on your old vehicle, but would have been too expensive to retrofit.
These weapons are just tools...
Dangerous, unpleasant and frightening tool, but tools nonetheless.
And it would be criminal to keep substandard tools around when we can easily get newer and more up to date ones.
This will probably LESSEN the amount of nuclear arms on the planet, because we will be replacing older, less efficient weapons with much more accurate and modern devices. Thus, we should need less weapons for the same effect.
Just things to keep in mind.
