Now that the Cold War is over, we really need to look at the financial cost of these weapons. Our arsenal is aging and by some estimates will need about $1 trillion to fully upgrade everything. We simply do not need the number of weapons that we currently have. Proposals have been floated to reduce the umber of nukes we have to around 450 and focus mostly on submarine-based delivery systems. This would dramatically reduce costs and still give us enough power to devastate any enemy or combinations thereof who wants to threaten us. Nuclear weapons are not going anywhere, and they have helped prevent major global wars since their creation. I would also only support this reduction in an agreement with Russia and possibly China. Although, China only has 200 nukes and they probably do not have plans to expand their arsenal anytime soon. However, we need to rethink our nuclear strategy. As it is, our arsenal is too old, too large, and too expensive.
