Unilateral structural disarmament of nuclear weapons


The failure to provide up-to-date infrastructure for development, production, maintenance and disposal of nuclear weapons in effect is unilateral disarmament of nuclear weapons in the west. Development and maintenance of sophisticated, technologically complex weapons require major expenditures and often long periods of time. Low budgetary priorities, little understanding on the part of legislatures, political expediency, deferred maintenance, forgone investment and aging designs have left nuclear weapons systems infrastructure nearly unworkable.
