LONDON April 11 news: According to the U.S. Cable News Network reported on the 8th, the former commander of U.S. Pacific Fleet, James Lyons warned that in China and India to develop long-range ballistic missiles in the context of the United States should have more weapons instead of reducing the number of nuclear warheads. He also said that his greatest worry is the United States did not fully consider the construction of China’s nuclear force structure, “With the military budget over last year’s double-digit growth, China is developing weapons of any one against U.S. forces.”
reported that the United States and Russia to cut a huge nuclear arsenal is a daunting task. Under the new “strategic arms reduction treaty,” the provisions of United States and Russia to hold on to 1550 nuclear warheads. Regardless of which country, which are large-scale nuclear arsenal. There is no doubt that these two countries can deal with any threat of nuclear warheads. However, with Obama to pursue the dream of zero-nuclear world for the nuclear forces, where the critical point is to reduce the nuclear arsenals of the problem is still unknown.
For Russia, nuclear warheads with a strong symbolic meaning. For the United States, to further reduce nuclear warheads in the current global power projection capabilities will have a direct impact. According to Carnegie Senior Fellow, nuclear non-proliferation and arms control, security experts said Sharon Scott Sony will be reduced to one thousand nuclear warheads or less, for the United States is a difficult decision. “By that time, you will really start to worry about the number of nuclear warheads, because you’ll ask the question: can we continue to have Trinity’s strategic nuclear forces? We can continue to have missiles, bombers and submarines it?”
U.S. experts worried about the future of nuclear weapons will make nuclear cuts towards the end of the Trinity
reported that the U.S. can launch the platform from three weapon systems: land-based (Intercontinental ballistic missile), equipped with a submarine-launched ballistic missile submarines, and heavy bombers. Obama recently released Nuclear Posture Review that in the next decade, the United States needs to maintain a nuclear Trinity in any part to prevent any unexpected technical issues or one of the launch platform for exposing weaknesses.
core part of any of the Trinity has its unique advantages. Submarine survival ability, intercontinental ballistic missile system more stable, more like a bomber because of its flexibility is a deterrent weapon. Some experts warned that once the number of nuclear warheads below one thousand, the United States to maintain strategic nuclear Trinity in the process, the operation will be encountered and potential political problems.
reported that the Trinity in the nuclear submarine is the most difficult part of cutting. Currently, the U.S. deployment in the Atlantic and Pacific with 14 submarines. In each ocean, the only two submarines to launch nuclear weapons at any time. Other submarines in port is not receiving maintenance Zhubo is preparing to deploy or deploy just ended. Many observers believe that, in order to maintain a viable nuclear energy a practical level, we need at least 10 submarines.
as intercontinental ballistic missiles, the report describes that the U.S. will be 450 intercontinental ballistic missiles were deployed at three bases, if the number of missile inventory is too low, it can no longer effectively maintain these three bases. However, the closure base means that a political war. Congress members will make every effort to prevent this from happening.
comparison, the bomber is the most easy to adjust the components, there may even be removed from the Trinity nuclear, its nuclear weapons and conventional load can be replaced. However, it is expected that the nuclear bombers will be an essential part of the Trinity. From silos or submarines and launched the missile, bomber is visible and can be recalled.
American National Security Policy Center, 席弗兰克盖夫尼 that the future of nuclear weapons will reduce towards the end nuclear Trinity, which is detrimental to the United States. He warned: “This will bring our troops with the national exposure we do not want to face danger, to improve the chance of war.”
However, other experts believe that the U.S. is not necessary, but even to maintain nuclear Trinity. Stanford University 帕维尔波多维 Ge that nuclear Trinity is the product of the Cold War. He said “nuclear first blow to the viability of the Trinity based on the concept, and this concept from the 1950s, and today’s world, nothing, he believes that nuclear is an integral part of any Trinity is enough to deal with any potential threat.
达里尔金伯尔 U.S. Arms Control Association Executive Director, said, cutting a intercontinental ballistic missile base, the number of submarines will be reduced to six, cut all of the nuclear bomber, and will not affect the U.S. nuclear capabilities. Jin Boer said, seems to support the Nuclear Posture Review, to reduce nuclear weapons, he said: “If the purpose of U.S. nuclear forces to prevent his country suffered a nuclear attack, then the reasons to support this goal will be smaller than the total list . “
former U.S. Pacific Fleet commander, said Chinese weapons were developed against the United States
However, other experts warned that the U.S. needs to have more than the target list weapons. China and India long-range ballistic missile weapons development, the target list will be only to rise, former commander of U.S. Pacific Fleet, James Lyons warned that his greatest worry is the United States did not fully consider the construction of China’s nuclear force structure “With last year’s military budget over the last double-digit growth, China is developing weapons of any one against U.S. forces”.
Russia also has its own concerns. A Carnegie Endowment for International Peace Foundation列克谢阿尔巴 Akhmetov said that Russia will find it increasingly difficult to further reduce their nuclear arsenals, he said: “Russia’s nuclear weapons status in the world is seen as the only remaining pillar.” Russian nuclear weapons as a “The important equalizer” to help eliminate conventional weapons and technology behind the inferiority of Russia that the United States in the field of conventional arms accounted for technological superiority, so maintain a high level of nuclear warheads is reasonable.
Carnegie Senior Fellow Scott Sony said it would cut nuclear warheads to one thousand or one thousand or less, will be raised another question: whether other countries should be involved in nuclear arms control dialogue which?
present , United States and Russia have a huge nuclear arsenal, its nuclear warhead more than thousands of pieces of other countries, we all know, France, China, Britain, Israel, India and Pakistan have nuclear weapons, North Korea is believed to have more than 12 nuclear warheads, and many countries believe that Iran’s uranium enrichment program is intended to manufacture items fissile material needed for nuclear weapons.
as countries have narrowed the gap between the number of nuclear warheads, when the time comes, arms control dialogue is bound to include other countries Obama is one of the government’s goal of multilateral arms control negotiations (Spring)
