This week, the National Nuclear Security Administration said it had completed its final review of a powerful weapon based on the B61s and outlined the next steps to revamp several types of nukes. The United States military will soon be able to slip undetected through enemy surveillance in stealth bombers and fighter jets to launch a devastating strike anywhere on the planet if need be…

Any weapon system that gets too great an advantage is destabilizing.

Well, I'd kinda like to have nukes that will go off when we tell them to, and not go off when we don't.

Some of those weapons are old enough that there is a real risk of their components failing.

But we need to keep the number in service constant, so in order to be able to remanufacture the old ones, we need some new ones.
