President-elect Donald Trump wants to 'greatly strengthen and expand U.S. nuclear capability.' Where do you stand on this issue?
Peace through strength
Mixed feelings. I'd prefer to not have or need any nuclear weapons on the entire planet, but I understand the wisdom of "speaking softly but carrying a big stick".
I think @Squidboy made a convincing argument and he has much more knowledge in this area than I do. I'll go with "no"
Strengthen yes. Expand no.
This man truly frightens me. Truly. He's either psycho or he's stupid. Probably both.
Nuclear power, super-approve, we have only a fraction of the capacity we should have or could already use. Nuclear weapons, super-disapprove, we already have many times more than we should have or could conceivably ever need.
Because blowing up the entire planet 29x over just isn't quite enough to eradicate our enemies. If we can't blow up the planet we live on at LEAST 100x then I just won't feel safe.
NO. NO. NO. NO. I'm not a novice here, I was on Trident submarines during & after the Cold War. I handled and maintained them. I know what they can do, why we have them and how many we have. These weapons are expensive to create, safeguard & maintain. Going back to Reagan, we have been working to reduce our nuclear arsenal from completely bonkers insane levels to let's just blow up the world 29 times over. His Tweet is either clueless or a setup for more defense pork. It's also a near word for word repeat of what Putin said in 2014. We have far more mucus than we need. What we do need to do is modernize our delivery systems and update security measures. But we could cut warheads in half and still have more than we will need in our lifetime.
If he means nuclear energy, I agree. If he means nukes, I disagree.
He means nukes. He may try to twist it later on, but his tweet is in reference to bombs.
In what way.....towards energy prospects....?.....
I disagree......let us be content with the ones we already have, if a need for expansion is necessary (doubtful), we should address that at its proper time......inho....
This fool is going to really hurt us and the world.
Why? Can we not already wipe out multiple countries with what we already have? Sounds like a way to spend more money
