President Obama should put the brakes on his administration’s plan to build a whole new generation of nuclear bombs, missiles, submarines, and bombers that will cost more than $1 trillion over the next 30 years — money that could be spent on more important priorities.
He should cancel the new nuclear armed cruise missile designed explicitly for fighting nuclear wars.
Nuclear weapons make us less safe and should never again be used.
If even a small number of nuclear weapons were used today, millions —if not billions — of people could die, large swaths of the planet could be contaminated, and the global economy could collapse.
The president still has time to act and reverse this dangerous course to make us all safer.
