What Reagan did 30 years ago has nothing to do with what Obama is proposing today. It makes no sense.

North Korea is building up. So is Iran. Russia and China are already forces and so no signs of slowing down. So why would the US want to reduce it's stockpile now?

Because we have enough to pulverize the Soviet Union 10 times over. But there is no Soviet Union. North Korea is a bit easier to pulverize.

You don't think 300 Nukes is an enough of deterrent? Especially since we can launch them from pretty much anywhere on the planet and strike hard? OH LOL the US only has 300 nukes they're weak LOL. 300 nukes is enough to kill a lot of this planets population.

No its because we have Subs off most of their coasts that could launch a Trident missile and wipe out a major city or two. I don't know if you really know we have A LOT of nuclear weapons, and its not like a conventional bomb, they're pretty destructive. You only need 1 to really get the point across. Especially since the ability to strike anywhere in the world basically rests with only the US and Russia. We have 300 nukes thats more than North Korea, France, Pakistan, India have combined. Only China and Russia have the DF-31 and 31A ICBMs which have a range of 7,500 miles. the US however has the Trident Missiles and the B83 nuclear bombs that can be launched from Jet Fighters. Also the US has perfected MIRVs so we can strike multiple targets with nukes easily while Chinas nukes we could theoretically intercept over the Pacific. T

Because we have too many, in terms of maintenance and even if we reduced by the amounts proposed, we'll still have too many. How many of those things do you think we need? It's not like a howitzer shell.

You're comparing Iran and the Juche entity to the USSR? LOL! Even with a reduced stockpile, we can destroy Korea (both of them) several hundred times.

We aren't at war with Russia or China anymore. Even so, we would still have enough to destroy all of their main cities and useful military targets. I guess we won't have enough to destroy the world and bring on the second cumming. Too bad.

There's also the matter that nuclear weapons have to be guarded lest they fall into the wrong hands. Those missile silos can't be completely automated since you have people there with shoot to kill orders or to push the self-destruct button if the shit goes down.

We don't get nothing in return. We get good will. Then maybe we won't have to bomb them later, saving even more money.

Barring that, the two things are entirely unrelated. You can cut both. You can cut one or the other and you can cut neither. There is no correlation whatsoever.

No you wont! Because the workers maintaining are now taking apart the nukes and the process doesn't take a day, i'd tell you that. People with the speciality in taking apart and maintaining nukes don't have a difficult time finding a job as well.

Id rather have the 0s for 3 years and benefits maintained. Than get a raise and pay more in benefits because that would be a pay cut.

And this contract has nothing to do with where federal money goes to Egypt. This is a NY State and NYC issue.
