It’s a good question, one that we will try to answer tomorrow afternoon.
Special guest star likely to appear. There is a little reception afterward. It will be awesome, I promise.
Thousands, Hundreds, or Zero?
How Many Nuclear Weapons Do We Need?
Nuclear weapons are the most destructive weapons ever invented. However, since the end of the Cold War, they have received little attention from the highest levels of government. There are many questions that need examination, including:
What role do nuclear weapons play in United States national security policy?
How many nuclear weapons does the United States need?
Is there a nuclear posture that can command bipartisan support?
Is the elimination of nuclear weapons feasible or desirable?
Join New America Foundation’s Nuclear Strategy and Nonproliferation Initiative and AAAS’s Center for Science, Technology and Security Policy for a discussion of these and other important questions.
