Biden is going to spend less on nuclear weapons

New US President Joe Biden is going to spend less on nuclear weapon... The White House intends to revise the program for the modernization of nuclear forces and cut this cost item. Writes about this The Wall Street Journal.


According to the newspaper, the Biden administration intends to cut spending on the nuclear modernization program, which is currently "worth" 1,2 trillion. dollars, as well as reduce the role of nuclear weapons in the strategy of the Pentagon. Joe Biden spoke about this even in his election program, criticizing Donald Trump for the decision to develop new sea-launched missiles.

A number of senior officials say the Biden administration will revise the Pentagon's decision to develop a new land-based ICBM, the program of which is estimated at more than $ 100 billion. A number of other solutions are possible aimed at reducing the program for the modernization of nuclear forces.

Currently, this decision has followers and opponents, especially from the Trump camp. In the opinion of many American politicians, the United States needs to further develop its land, air and naval nuclear systems. On the other hand, the federal budget deficit and the opportunity to come to an agreement with the Russians could curtail the nuclear modernization program, the magazine writes.

In addition, Biden promised to narrow the role of nuclear weapons within the framework of US military doctrine. According to him, the sole purpose of nuclear weapons should be "deterring or responding to a nuclear attack." Biden also said that he wants to extend the START-3 treaty with Russia.

Despite all the promises, the newspaper writes, Biden will not make rash decisions, but will first consult with the military and politicians.

        This is good news. If his arrival is so inevitable, then "we'll see" wink

        And we also need to raise the gender-racial indicators in corporations that develop nuclear weapons and the troops, that is, to expel intolerant white engineers and replace them with politically correct engineers! fellow Well, not to shoot for 20 years, of course.

        This task will be entrusted to the progressive and ideologically savvy Vice President Kamala Harris! She can handle it, I believe in her good

          Then it is better for the United States to completely abandon nuclear weapons.

            The US has nuclear weapons and so heaps! It remains for the Americans to maintain its numbers only at the same level.
            In terms of the number of nuclear weapons, the United States is already ahead of the rest.

              Besides Biden promised to narrow the role of nuclear weapons in the framework of US military doctrine... According to him, the sole purpose of nuclear weapons should be "deterring or responding to a nuclear attack." Biden also said that he wants to extend the START-3 treaty with Russia.

              And this is already serious. Many in Russia still do not believe in the existence of a new - non-nuclear - US doctrine! But in vain. Such a non-nuclear doctrine does exist at the Pentagon and is being prepared for successful implementation.
              No matter how Russia profits this beginning of the US + NATO war against Russia. The peoples of Russia do not have much to count on the patriotism of the Russian oligarchic "elites".

    I would advise Biden to place American nuclear weapons and missiles under the control of the world community and then eventually eliminate them. repeat Somewhere we already saw this about 30 years ago.

    If you look at the list of advisors who are attracted by the new administration of minke whales, there are very cunning, smart, EXPERIENCED personnel !!! Those who absolutely hate us.
    The methods of influence they offer are no less dangerous than a fiery weapon !!!
    We need to keep our ears on top, we will most likely be, will, pressured in a variety of ways, sophisticated and continuous!

      They hate us about as much as the peasant hates his best cash cow.
      In fact, in the American establishment, the discussion is only about the best methods of milking.
      The difference is that Trump and his people are loyal to the current administration of the Russian Federation, while the Democrats consider it an analogue of Latin American dictatorships (like Pinochet) unnecessary in the world they are building.

        All for the sake of power, resources, those guys do not intend to share with anyone. Those who are with us, above us, are also gradually creating their own sphere of influence and interests.
        Basically, they are not enemies, but they do not want to share, they give little.
        What is this for us, ordinary citizens ... nothing good now, and in the long term !!!

    An old man with obvious dementia symptoms may confuse prolongation with cessation. And what to say to him is prompted by his "guardians". So it's too early to rejoice. That's when START 3 will be extended, then we'll talk.

    And in this you are, of course, right! But complete failure is a dream ...
    And if there is still an operator sitting there under something ... wassat There were scandals.

    They practically legalized marijuana at the federal level two weeks ago! bully
    The House of Representatives voted in favor of a law called the "MORE Act" that removes marijuana from the banned list and annuls all convictions for it. Remained a vote in the Senate and the president's signature ... And that's all. Total legalization. Kamala Harris, the new IDP, introduced this law in 2019, it was rejected. Jerry Nedler introduced it this year and the House voted. Biden will sign, but the Republican Senate is against. However, the Senate is still bent with the arrival of Bidon.

    What am I for? And to the fact that the adequacy of American society is systematically declining. And elites are doing this to cushion the expected drop in living standards ...

    Do not hope, do not disarm. They just won't let him do it. Are there several options?
    1. Legislators will not allow to do this (as an option)
    2. The military will not let you do it
    The end result of these options could be impeachment
    3. "Glue the flippers" (by himself or help)

    But despite everything, he perfectly understands that Trump's behavior during the presidency is the behavior of an elephant in a china shop. Trump has a fix idea. All contracts that he did not conclude are a priori "bad". Biden will be wiser in this regard, although he is unlikely to be able to close some programs: a new IBR and a new SLBM. And he will most likely try to reduce the "nuclear chunk of the budget". A couple of years ago, it was planned to spend 10 trillion over 1 years, now it is 1,2 trillion and it is not clear for what period

    In fact, WE are ahead of the rest of the planet in terms of the number of nuclear weapons. It is always difficult for everyone to maintain the number at the level. This is a very expensive undertaking. In addition, being in a state of euphoria from the collapse of the USSR, they actually multiplied their nuclear industry by zero. And they will have to restore it if they do not want to remain without nuclear weapons at all in 20-30 years

    Well, for several years in a row they voiced the figure of 1 trillion, and then suddenly Trump raised it by 2 hundred billion. He can easily reduce these 200 billion and use it for other purposes. And the wolves will be fed (military and military industrial complex) and the sheep are safe (will show their peacefulness)

    According to him, the sole purpose of nuclear weapons should be "deterring or responding to a nuclear attack."

    Everything is correct. Why spend money on nuclear weapons that will not be used in a conventional (non-nuclear) war? It is better to spend money on conventional weapons (cruisers, drones, precision bombs) and on provoking regional wars (Russia-Ukraine, China-India).
