Boost for disarmament talks as US reveals size of nuclear arsenal


www.timesonline.co.uk

The United States revealed the size of its nuclear arsenal last night in an unprecedented attempt to galvanise efforts to rid the world of nuclear weapons.

The US Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, announced the declassification of one of the Pentagon’s most closely guarded secrets at the opening day of a critical international meeting on global disarmament. It shows that the US stockpile consists of 5,113 nuclear warheads and “several thousand” more retired warheads that await dismantling.

I disagree OP. You never let your enemy know what you have or what you will do. To do so almost certainly guarentees Defeat.

Obama has never ran any business in his life. He has never Served in the Military. Yet he tells the World what we have?

America born July 4, 1776 Died January 20, 2010 Cause of death Suicide!

Molon Labe!

Why would I believe this to be a legitimate release of classified info. This is the US government. Saying how many nukes they have is as trustworthy if they said they had a unicorn too.

Maybe in the case of new military hardware or vehicles, but not in the case of nukes, they're going to drive up the fear from other nations, especially since 5000 is quite a large number.

For asteroids or whatever

All you need in ONE nuke...letting the enemy know you have 5000 is not showing weakness. That is showing power.

And what makes people think this is something other nations didn't know already? Hell, I thought it would be much higher...not that I'd want it to be.

Some people bitch just to bitch.

We don't need 5000 nukes....the world doesn't need 5000 nukes.
