It's true that we do still produce nuclear weapons, as technology advances and the hardware ages it becomes necessary to create new ones in order to maintain the stockpile.

I sometimes wonder about our nuclear capabilities in regards to asteroids. Surely the government has looked into those things. And I'm sure that the guise of said research would be very useful in developing offensive space based weapons.

We know railguns are operating as theres been a couple vids of the US Navy testing them and also rumours of a tank based railgun being used in GulfWar2 that metled a vehicle and its occupants into a pool of metal on the road.
I dont kow what the devastation would be like of a railgun impacting a building from space, dont know enough about it I admit, but can you imagine a strategic strike on several locations at the same time? with no radiactive fallout?
You wouldnt see it coming.
What good are nukes seriously? you cannot overtake the land as it is devasted and useless.....
Nukes are like gasoline engines.....very outdated and inefficient IMO.
