Biden continues to reverse anything having to do with Trump, whether it’s good for the country or not. Meanwhile, the State Department releases classified information after it has been declassified, causing the country to be more vulnerable than ever.
What in the world is the administration thinking announcing how many nuclear weapons we have in our stockpile? We might as well scream it from the mountaintops.
Under the Trump administration, this was classified information – and for good reason. After all, we don’t want our enemies to know how many nuclear weapons we do or don’t have. It’s strategic.
Yet, Biden doesn’t care about strategy. He doesn’t care if another country decides to go to war with us. The weak, demented president may even choose to cave to a country such as Russia or China. Then, we can just jump right into communism, which is what the far left wants for the U.S. anyway.
As of September 2020, there were 3,750 total nuclear weapons in active status and in long-term storage.
Does that seem low? Absolutely. It’s an estimated 88 percent reduction in comparison to the 31,255 warheads that we had in 1967. And, it’s an 83 percent reduction compared to the 22,217 warheads that we had in 1989 near the end of the Cold War.
By identifying that we have considerably fewer nuclear weapons than we’ve had in decades past, we look weak. We don’t have the means to back up our threats. Our enemies can look at the piddly amount and assume that they can take us.
Between 1994 and 2020, the U.S. was responsible for dismantling over 11,000 warheads according to a fact sheet produced by the State Department. There are also another 2,000 warheads that are currently retired and waiting to be dismantled.
The State Department said that they want to increase transparency regarding the nuclear stockpile. An official said it “is important to nonproliferation and disarmament efforts.”
The United States is a member of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. It’s a global effort to eliminate nuclear weapons.
That’s all well and great, but there are a number of countries that are not a part of the treaty. There are nefarious forces that are still actively looking to create nuclear warheads.
No one is asking the military to begin making more nuclear weapons. Nonproliferation is great…but only if every single country in the world makes the agreement. Otherwise, we have to have a means to defend ourselves…or at least be able to back up our bark.
It’s why the Trump administration chose to keep the updated numbers under wraps. It’s even reported that he denied a request from the Federation of American Scientists to declassify them.
Biden isn’t strategic. He isn’t even functioning at an acceptable level for a president, let alone any Joe off the street.
According to Secretary of State Antony Blinken, “President Biden has made it clear: the U.S. has a national security imperative and a moral responsibility to reduce and eventually eliminate the threat posed by weapons of mass destruction.”
Yes, let’s get rid of our weapons of mass destruction since no one should have that kind of power. However, do we really have to tell everyone? Let’s face it. While we may be morally responsible, do you really think that the Taliban would be just as morally responsible with their warheads, especially if they decided that they’ve had enough of us once and for all.
But, go ahead, Biden. Declassify that information. Perhaps you’ll want to announce the nuclear launch codes, too. You know, in the name of transparency.
