On-going threats from North Korea, paired with China and Russia’s growing military capabilities, has motivated President Donald Trump promised to enhance our nuclear weapon arsenal and the overall U.S. nuclear strategy.

This has inspired somewhat of a debate in Washington. The Pentagon believes there is no better time to enhance the U.S. nuclear forces, while critics believe it will encourage other countries to do the same and will lower the threshold for testing these weapons and ultimately, risk a nuclear war.

The Huffington Post published an alleged unclassified draft of the upcoming U.S. nuclear strategy last week, which was dismissed by the Pentagon as “pre-decisional.” A source privy to the plan told Reuters that the draft obtained was authentic, but didn’t say if it was the final document presented to the president.

“While the United States has continued to reduce the number and salience of nuclear weapons, others, including Russia and China, have moved in the opposite direction,” said the alleged draft in defense of the plan. “The United States must be capable of developing and deploying new capabilities, if necessary, to deter, assure, achieve U.S. objectives if deterrence fails, and hedge against uncertainty.”

“The Nuclear Posture Review has not been completed and will ultimately be reviewed and approved by the President and the Secretary of Defense,” said the Pentagon in a statement.

A year ago, Trump commissioned the Pentagon’s Nuclear Posture Review to reassess the U.S. nuclear strategy and weaponry.

The plan will likely include the development of new nuclear weapons.

“One weapon, which experts say could be deployed in about two years, is a “low yield” warhead for the Trident missile, which currently is deployed with more powerful warheads on the Navy’s submarines that carry ballistic missiles,” writes Wall Street Journal. “The U.S. also would pursue the development of a new nuclear-tipped sea-launched cruise missile, reintroducing a system that was retired from the American arsenal in 2010.”

Russia just developed a new ground-launched cruise missile, which violates the treaty signed between the U.S. and Russia in 1987 that bans intermediate-range missiles based on land.

The “low yield” system will help the U.S. respond better to threats since these weapons will be based at sea where the U.S. doesn’t need permission from other countries to deploy. Sea-based weapons also don’t violate any existing arms-control agreements.

Critics argue that this will only encourage other nations to develop more weapons and deploy them.

“We should be doing everything to reduce the risk that nuclear weapons are going to be used, not expanding the ambiguity of when we might use nuclear weapons,” said Jon Wolfsthal, who was the senior official for arms control under President Barack Obama’s National Security Council to WSJ.

Daryl Kimball, the head of the Arms Control Association, also said that developing more weapons is a dangerous move.

“The use of even a small number of these weapons would be catastrophic,” said Kimball to The Guardian. “Threatening nuclear attack to counter new kinds of ‘asymmetric’ threats is unnecessary, would increase the risk of nuclear weapons use, and would make it easier for other countries to justify excessive roles for nuclear weapons in their policies.”

Proponents of the new nuclear plan claim that are needed as a defensive measure that will make other countries think twice before threatening the U.S.

“This is not about making weapons more usable; this is about strengthening deterrence so that nuclear weapons are not used in the first place,” said Robert Joseph, a senior national security official in under the George W. Bush administration to WSJ. “We have to think what would be credible in Russian eyes.”

The draft is purposely vague about how the U.S. will retaliate to enemies.

“If we are explicit about saying (when) we will not retaliate with the strongest weapons we have, we are implicitly telling our adversaries you can plan for these scenarios more freely,” said Michaela Dodge, senior policy analyst at the Heritage Foundation to Reuters.

The official strategy is expected to be unveiled later this month.

    Read Mathew 24 and you will understand that all of this was predicted by Christ long ago and once again in Revelation. Man knows nothing BUT WAR, he will never accomplish peace on his own. Only Christ when He returns to set up His kingdom under His Laws and leadership will there be peace. THEN man will truly “beat their weapons into plowshares and learn war no more.”

      Seems that you forget that God does some killing when it needs to be done, as well. Remember the Egyptians that were hunting down the Israelites on their escape from Egypt? Did not God drown a legion of their army? How about Sodom and Gomorrah? Did God not destroy those who would not listen?

      Are we not made in the image of God? Why, then, would we not also be in command of our senses enough to defend ourselves from those who would destroy us?

      By the way, God has given us the intelligence to understand the technologies that we need to defend this nation that He has given to us (you would probably consider some of these technologies to be “magic”, if you just knew how advanced they are), unless you do not actually believe in God.

      He will bestow His blessings upon us, but, we have got to do our part to defend ourselves, as well.

    China and Russia, as well as Iran and N. Korea have been developing nuclear weapons and delivery system ever since they signed the agreement not to…

    Personally, I feel that the US should, if not already, develop special weapons for destroying an opponents’ electrical grid, as we are warned about. Causing deprivation of their civil resources without immediate death or destruction.

    Well, ht’d better, because MAD is a GOOD deterrent; it kept us and the USSR from going to “hot” war for over 40 years, which is a pretty strong record. In fact, there were numerous brushes that prove it is a good plan; military and civilian leaders alike were aware “pushing the button” would be fatal for everyone and thought real hard about doing so. And our enemies have NOT STOPPED developing newer and better weapons; only we did, unilaterally.

      Only because you want to. If you were to be honext, thrre is absolutely NOTHING to make you think that. If you didn’t see it Obama, then you are blind. The only that deters an invasion and take over, is the fact we could destroy the invader. The best defense is a strong offense.

    Most of our nuclear weapons are old….. really old. Many are several decades old. The technology is 70 + years old, updating could make them more reliable, and more accident proof.

    You’re looking thru your butt-hole! If it weren’t for Trump beating ” Lucifers she devil ” , Hillary and her socialist party friends would be sacrificing our military and MAD (just like the socialist islamist Obama accomplished) by leading from behind . Since Obama has been in office both NoKo and Iran have made their greatest advances ever in nuclear bombs and ICBM technolgy ever

    Please stop calling them critics, as they are against America defending its self and the total destruction of America. These people are communists and would love for China and/or Russia to take over our country. So, please stop calling them critics because they want America destroyed. Why do you even give them a platform?!

    Bring back Neutron munitions and demonstrate the ‘Rods of God’ technology on North Korean command and control facilities.

    I agree with the President. You don’t avoid getting beat-up by looking weak to the Bully. Also, if you look strong enough, and ready to fight they will find someone else to try to bully.

    I’m for building a strong defense. We have to be prepared at all times. I can remember years ago how strong we were in our Military. Before the went to closing military bases everywhere’s

    Silly critics! Telling us that if we don’t upgrade our weaponry our enemies will voluntarily not upgrade theirs! Next they’ll be telling us to give our enemies large amounts of uranium and money.
