3/18/21 Daryl Kimball: Enough Already, No New ICBMs

Daryl Kimball talks about the need to limit the creation and proliferation of nuclear weapons in the world. Today, says Kimball, the U.S. is heading in the wrong direction: a $200 billion plan is in the works to update and expand America’s nuclear arsenal, even though, according to Kimball and all reasonable observers, we already have way more nukes than anyone needs. Most disinterested experts agree that a small arsenal is more than enough to deter other nuclear-armed countries, and that the kind of stockpiles the U.S. and Russia have don’t make anybody any safer. In fact, it greatly increases the chances of a full-scale nuclear war. Because of the global consequences of nuclear fallout, such a war can never be won, and so it must never be fought.

Discussed on the show:

Daryl Kimball has been the Executive Director of the Arms Control Association since September 2001. He has written and spoken extensively about nuclear arms control, non-proliferation and weapons production. Follow him on Twitter @DarylGKimball.
