Mutually assured suicide. I’ll go first.

Presbo has asked for the Pentagon to lay out a plan to reduce our nuclear arsenal by 80%, from its current level of 1550, down to about 300.  This while China has installed 3000 linear miles of hardened tunnels which may have as many as 3000 weapons, according to former Pentagon strategic forces analyst, Professor Phillip Karber.  Pakistan, that bastion of Moslem calmness may have as many as 100.  Russia has around 2200 and another 7000 plu is various stages of reserve and stockpile status.  And of course, Iran and North Korea are rocking along as hard as they can to get some to play with.

Once the re-election is over, the decrease in our numbers can be accomplished by mere executive order, without the need for any sloppy legislation.  Of course, after a 3-4 day nuclear war, our capability to gear back up may be 15 to 29 years down the road.  If ever.

3rd career and 2nd childhood. Spends spare time repairing old things. Aspires to burn more gasoline, gunpowder, and ink in pursuit of slowing down. Child of the 60s and aspiring student of history. No desire to see us repeat the failed social experiments that keep failing for lack of human beings that meet the left wing standards and have to be killed off. Did engineering long enough to realize that very little is new and the wheel does not need to be reinvented.
