We have a difference of opinion, arms control specialists have a deep knowledge of nuclear deterrence policy. However, exactly what is Trump suggesting that is an improvement upon the current nuclear weapons modernisation program? Yet again he is just mouthing off destabilising rhetoric.

 

Fair enough, but personally I won't take those organizations like oath & expose the US to attack because some 'feel good' group thinks the world is a big PC happy-place. 

 

Trump Tweeted basically nothing but whats already going on + possibly expansion. The destabilizing rhetoric is clearly coming from MSNBC. 

 

Agree he should stop trolling the MSM.

Yep and funding has already been allocated & estimated at approx US$1 trillion over 30 years to modernise and maintain the nuclear arsenal. As your link quite correctly  highlighted it is utmost recklessness to tweet on strategic nuclear weapons policy that can be open to misunderstanding / misinterpretation / mis.... / mis...

 

If this is the future standard for a US Administration to communicate with the world on such important matters, not a good look and frankly undermines US credibility.

"....US credibility."

US has credibility??

The experts sited are not experts on 'policy' at all. They are merely organizations with an agenda.

You can not like nuclear weapons all you want, but the fact of the matter is that they are the only thing that will keep us from being attacked with nuclear weapons. The logic is that its never a worry of one country, but a worse case scenario of several countries bombin the US simultaneously. Thats the reason having so many is required. The US must be able to keep that safeguard as it will keep countries from 'ganging up' as it were. 

 

Its extreme of course, but its true. 

 

Regardless, its a freakin Tweet and pajama wearing news anchors. 

 

Whose scenario is this?  And even if they did, we have ICBMs in nuclear submarines all over the globe.  How would such a lunatic coalition prevent massive retaliation?  Spending hundreds of billions to address a problem that is vanishlingly small is nuts.  And I tried to do a google search to see if anybody out there supports your contention and came up with zip. This sounds like a methedrine fueled prognostication.

Over 60 million people voted for the guy. 

 

To put that in context for the simpletons, its equivalent to the entire population of the UK. The entire population. 

 

Thats the entire population of Australia almost 3 times over. 3 Times over. 

And 63 Million voted for his opponent.

 

So lets just undo all the work of everybody over the last 30 years to reduce Nuclear stockpiles. Cant wait to see how he reduces taxes while engaging in a pointless trillion dollar nuclear arms race. Hey though, drop a few nukes and imagine the real estate opportunities for his 3 little piggies.

The Full quote for more context:

 

 

And of course the ridiculous 'morning joe' skit with the anchors in their pajamas feigning shock. Beyond dumb. 

 

 

The response was coming from this tweet:

And Mika Brzezinski from MSNBC asked him to clarify this tweet, privately, over the phone, in a conversation for witch we have no context and only get this one 'soundbite' from some news anchors in their pajamas.

 

 

So the headline is an out and out lie.  Even the AP wouldn't create a fake quote like this. American news again through the filter of the people who know nothing about America at "EuroNews." Can TVF start filing news stories from the Nacogdoches Sentinel when it comes to European matters?

And the Trillion dollar arms race is where exactly? Drawing some far out conclusions from some news anchors wearing pajamas.

Goodbye trillion dollar infrastrucure budget.

US will have bridges to nowhere because they collapsed from lack of renovation, repair and maintenance.

Thankfully they are a lot smarter than the 60 million who voted for "The Donald"

I beg to differ, Putin is way way cleverer but they are both ruthless.

The one good thing about a nuclear battle is:  Less humans = a respite for the many species which are being wiped out by humans (most notably, the Chinese with their insatiable lust for exotic animal parts).

 

I hear ya, boomerang... a billion fewer from both China and India would be a start. I mean, why do they need so many? Gets a bit silly after 500M, no?
