Just as our enemies are working 24/7 to modernize and/or develop their own nuclear arsenal.
A review of the United States’ nuclear arsenal due to be released on Monday has been delayed again. Barack Obama, the US president, had planned a sharp reduction in the arsenal as part of a new strategy to be outlined in the Nuclear Posture Review. White House officials say the finished document will call for more reliance on using conventional weapons as a deterrent.
The review is also supposed to get rid of a programme to develop a nuclear weapon that can detonate underground.
