    Nuclear disarmament

    Even though we live in a post-Cold War world, the prospect of nuclear warfare is still a possibility, however slim. Should we take steps to eliminate our nuclear weapons, and if yes, how so?

    I made the poll multiple choice due to the complex nature of nuclear disarmament and the steps that may be taken in order to achieve it.

    Uhm, NO.

    As long as Nations like Iran are trying to procur Nuclear weapons and Nations like Russia and North Korea HAVE Nuclear weapons we should keep our stockpile.

    The US President that vows to completely do away with the American stockpile is a dangerous man.

    At least to the safety and security of the American people.

    Re: Nuclear disarmament

    Not a great idea, all things considered.

    Nukes are a terrible, awful invention, but the cat's out of the bag and to completely eliminate nuclear stockpiles would be extremely foolish.

    Re: Nuclear disarmament

    Absolutely not. If you cannot trust all of those with nukes today, then there is no reason to trust any disarmament negotiation between these nations. Worse, the US is in no position to offer a further agreement given our difficulties with a good third of the planet. Besides, that game is long since up as we have too many others around the globe now with nukes or actively trying to obtain / develop them. Mutually assured destruction, unfortunately, still has to exist.

    Ideally, we should get rid of all weapons of mass destruction, but since the Cold War the world has been put in a International Mexican Stand off with Nuclear weapons.

    Retain our supply of tactical nuclear weapons. Retain a few high-power bombs to target any underground military bases (not in populated areas) we are aware of in enemy nuclear nations, in the event of nuclear war.

    On an international level, work for the voluntary mutual destruction of all nuclear weapons, excluding N-bombs.

    No. The term nuclear deterrent is still very much valid and relevant.

    That is acting with so much ideology it becomes asinine, what about the nations who do not want to participate in disarmament?

    Re: Nuclear disarmament

    Absolutely not. If there was a magical button that would disarm all nuclear weapons in the world, and prevent anyone from ever making new ones, may as well press it; then, we could all ride off into the sunset on our flying pink unicorns to the Kingdom of Sunshine and Sparkles. Sadly, we do not live in a college hippie's wet dream, so we have to keep our nuclear arms for our own protection.
