Little place for arms control in Trump's nuclear strategy

US 'shamelessly threatening Russia with atomic weapon', says Iran's Rouhani

President TrumpDonald John TrumpSchiff: Nunes gave Trump "secretly altered" version of memo Davis: "Deep state" existed in '16 - but it elected Trump Former Trump legal spokesman to testify to Mueller about undisclosed call: report MORE, meanwhile, applauded the new policy.

"If you believe that nuclear weapons deter and bring peace and stability, then we should welcome North Korea", Beatrice Fihn, executive director of the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons, said mockingly.

When the Obama administration did its own reset of the strategy in 2010, it argued the world could be made safer if the US reduced the role of nuclear weapons in defense strategy.

"It is now clear that the United States must have sufficient research, design, development and production capacity to support the sustainment and replacement of its nuclear forces".

The latest nuclear posture review published by the Pentagon called for a larger arsenal of smaller, low-yield nuclear weapons to act as a more "credible" deterrent to threats, particularly from Russian Federation. "I'm afraid this Nuclear Posture Review will be used by other countries to ignore calls for nuclear arms reduction, and in doing so leave the world less safe". "The Americans are shamelessly threatening Russian Federation with a new atomic weapon".

On Iran, the review said the main goal was to prevent Tehran from developing nuclear weapons.

President Donald Trump's administration last week released a new policy on nuclear weapons meant to counter Russia's own weapons technologies and tactics, The New York Times reports. It asserts that any North Korean nuclear attack against the US or its allies will result in "the end of that regime".

Conman infects 21 people with HIV while pretending to be a doctor
The Indian Medical Association estimates that about 45% of the people in India who practice medicine have no formal training. The HIV targets the immune system and weakens people's defence systems against infections and some types of cancer.

Moscow has called the new USA policy "bellicose" and "anti-Russian" and warned it might take responsive measures to boost its own security.

The Trump administration's proposal to add a sea-launched cruise missile to the US nuclear arsenal, criticized by some as overkill, is meant to provide new negotiating leverage to USA diplomats trying to persuade Russian Federation to end violations of a key arms control treaty, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said Tuesday.

The United States would spend $1.2 trillion over the next 30 years on the nuclear weapons. Most of that money would go to new generations of bombers and new submarines, and a rebuilding of the land-based nuclear missile force that still dots giant fields across the West.

"This is a very mainstream nuclear policy", Miller added.

He made a decision to retain the ICBM force because he thinks the hundreds of silos across the heartland serve as an important deterrent for Russian Federation and other potential adversaries, given how hard it would be for an enemy to disable them all in one shot. We have plenty of low-yield weapons. The data also revealed that Israel, which has never denied or confirmed having nuclear weapons, has 80 warheads in its nuclear arsenal and North Korea was predicted to have at least 20 of the weapons of mass destruction.

Thomas Karako, a specialist on nuclear issues at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, said many people - including Obama - enter government sympathetic to disarmament but moderate their ambitions when confronted with threat intelligence.
