Letters to the Editor

New weapons

Letter writer Richard Kramer stated that the United States government should not spend $1 trillion in developing new weapons in the next ten years.

But has he also written letters to Xi Jinping of China, Vladimir Putin of Russia, Kim Jong-un of North Korea and Hassan Rouhani of Iran, advising them not to spend money on developing new weapons.

Specifically, the new Russian Intercontinental Ballistic Missile with a range of 11 kilometers and four nuclear heads each; or China’s new 500-mile stealth and supersonic cruise missile or the new, intercontinental 6-engine stealth bomber; or North Korea’s new long range nuclear missile that can reach the U.S. West Coast; or Iran’s intercontinental missiles and atomic bomb.

If we wants to prevent or not encourage a nuclear attack, we need to keep ahead of our potential enemies. Best example was Neville Chamberlain’s British policies before WWII. Thankfully, Winston Churchill and the U.S. prevented Nazism from prospering in the world.
