The real pont of discussion I am getting at is why can't we just ditch these warheads? I mean, I am patriotic and have had many many friends in the armed forces (lots of peops there game) but can't we just say no to these things and throw them in the ocean?
When it comes to any bilateral relationships the bigger sociopath sets the rules. While the leadership we have now are not winners, the Russkies set the tempo by topping our guys. Just listen to any interview on the Cuban missile crisis with Castro. The man had every intention of sending the missiles our way and armed if the USSR gave his forces control of them. Or for an example closer to home try having a conversation with a four year old about any "adult" topic.
