The Trillion Dollar Question: The Modernization of the US Nuclear Weapons Arsenal

Follow the money trail–it is all about wealth and power, nothing else and we are too damn stupid to fight the lies. Although, the Trump/Sanders revolution is a good start.

Isn’t it rather odd that America’s largest single public expenditure scheduled for the coming decades has received no attention in the 2015-2016 presidential debates?The expenditure is for a thirty-year program to “modernize” the U.S. nuclear arsenal and production facilities.

Although President Obama began his administration with a dramatic public commitment to build a nuclear weapons-free world, that commitment has long ago dwindled and died. It has been replaced by an administration plan to build a new generation of U.S. nuclear weapons and nuclear production facilities to last the nation well into the second half of the twenty-first century.

This plan, which has been largely ignored by the mass media, includes redesigned nuclear warheads, as well as new nuclear bombers, submarines, land-based missiles, weapons labs, and production plants. The estimated cost? $1,000,000,000,000.00 — or, for those readers unfamiliar with such lofty figures, $1 trillion.
