You do know we reduced the ground based missiles from 1K X 3 warheads to about 300 single warheads. Many Missile subs have been modified to launch standard arms such has tomahawks. We may have more, but mutual destruction is still the outcome.

$$$$ Russia cannot afford an arms race, neither can we but more so than they...see ronald reagan and star wars, quite fitting that there is a new star wars movie just in time for the new arms race...

The US has approximately 7,100 nuclear warheads. Not sure where or how you came to 300.

Warheads must be delivered. I worked Minute Man from 71 to 78 and installed the 1st MM III. We had 1000k MM missiles at that time. Due to treaties that number has been reduced to 300 all single warheads. Subs have reduced their capacity also.

If we're talking deployed I believe the number is closer to 1,400 in aggregate ... still plenty by most rationale people's guidelines.

Nuclear fire power of the boomer (SSBN 631) that I was on in the early 80’s was 1000 times that of the Hiroshima blast.

I always thought our warheads were around 10K tons. Boy was I wrong. Even when they carried 3 separate warheads that was 10 Megatons.

The US's B41 was about 25 megatons.

Trump is really all over the place. Someone has to get rid of his Twitter account.

Does anyone actually believe that Trump's puppet sons would not seek advice or assistance when they boggle a relationship with Daddy's business partner? They will absolutely need his guidance to bail them out a deal gone sour.

Bribes in the form of hotel profits donated to the Treasury are a weak token. :lol:
In the global Trump Empire, emoluments will appear in several different forms.
What are the greens fees at Doral now :wink:

He cannot possibly win the Press War that he has declared.
The only Fake News delivered today was from the podium of the Trump Press conference.

Are you kidding me! :lol:

Drumph, thru his own daily activity, is giving life to the Anti-Fascist movement.

:seeya
let me know when ANY of the above pans out...

in an unheard-of moment for a presidential news conference, shouted down questions from a CNN reporter, declaring, with some menace, “Not you.”

“Your organization is terrible,” said President-elect Donald J. Trump, his voice rising as Jim Acosta of CNN tried to interject. “No, I’m not going to give you a question. I’m not going to give you a question.”

“You,” the president-elect said, as Mr. Acosta and other stunned journalists looked on, “are fake news.”
