Reject funding for new “low-yield” and other warfighting nuclear weapons.
Ronald Reagan famously warned that, “A nuclear war can never be won and must never be fought.” In the the 35 years since Reagan’s statement, the world has made important but insufficient progress in reducing nuclear dangers. Now, the Trump Administration is arguing, without any credible evidence, that other countries may think they could prevail in a limited nuclear exchange. As a result, the administration is looking to build new “low-yield” nuclear warheads for sea- and ground-launched ballistic and cruise missiles. That’s on top of existing plans for a decades-long, trillion dollar-plus rebuild of Cold War-holdover nuclear forces.
