    Actually we have over 5,000 of them. And we aren't worried about British nuclear weapons, having nuclear weapons because the British have them is a waste of money.

    And suppose we have to actually nuke someone, can you think of a situation where we would use 5,000 nuclear weapons? Or a thousand, or a hundred? Hell I can't think of a reason to use a single one, I'm not saying we should get rid of them all but 5,000 of them is a waste of money.

    Heya Wiseone. Thanks for that info. I thought maybe 1000. As I was going with the Article.

    Nuclear stockpile numbers are closely guarded secrets in most nations that possess them, but private nuclear policy experts say no countries other than the U.S. and Russia are thought to have more than 300. The Federation of American Scientists estimates that France has about 300, China about 240, Britain about 225, and Israel, India and Pakistan roughly 100 each.....snip

    I have thought of a scenario.....like visitors to the Planet. That would be more Advanced than we are and just like we are in Warring and taking others stuff. Should they prove to be more than our match. Then Holding the planet hostage would be one way. To guarantee that No others can wipe out humanity and take it.

    How ironic, a world leader in Germany calling out false threats all over the place, when he is the true threat. History repeating itself.

    Yes. And for some reason he's not a conservative hero even though this was a list of things Reagan did.

    I think in the list of defense planning priorities, alien invasion falls well well well at the back of the list.

    Say what Duece? How would one call it a dumbass Plan? Especially if.....in the Hypothetical, those visiting were going to wipe out Humanity. Having no other alternative. It would be the only response we would have.

    Might not happen in our lifetime.....course then we did have the UN create a Special Committee to deal with any contact by those from another planet. Back in 2010. Creating the UN Office of Space Affairs.

    United Nations to appoint space ambassador to act as first contact for aliens visiting Earth



    Mazlan Othman is expected to be tasked with coordinating humanity's response to an extraterrestrial visit, if ever required.

    The 58-year-old Malaysian will tell a conference next week that with the recent discovery of hundreds of planets orbiting around other stars, the detection of alien life is becoming more and more likely.

    Ms Othman, currently the head of the UN's Office for Outer Space Affairs (Unoosa), recently told fellow scientists that mankind needed to be ready to deal with alien contact.

    In April though Professor Stephen Hawking warned that the alien contact, if it ever comes, may not be as friendly as has been hoped.

    In a documentary, the 68-year-old scientist said he imagined aliens arriving in 'massive ships' and could try to colonise Earth and plunder the planet's resources.

    We only have to look at ourselves to see how intelligent life might develop into something we wouldn’t want to

    So, what you are saying is we should keep hundreds, perhaps thousands of additional nuclear warheads around because of the indistinguishable-from-zero chance of alien invasion might prompt us to destroy ourselves out of spite instead of actually fighting back.

    No really, this is ****ing stupid.

    No I didn't say anything about Not fighting back.....you just added that to the mix. But that's alright......clearly you cannot comprehend what you cannot fathom.
