Already, myths of a nuclear Armageddon have monopolized the media space.
That means effectively deterring Russian Federation from using its small-scale nuclear arsenal for tactical military operations.
Even the Obama administration recognized this trend after Russia's 2014 invasion of Ukraine. The report also stated that Russian Federation has over 2,000 "non-strategic" nuclear weapons, including missiles, "gravity bombs", anti-ship and anti-submarine torpedoes.
Until 1945, mankind lived in a nuclear free world.
South Korea is a major U.S. ally with the two countries forging strong military and economic ties.
While the triad has kept the nation safe for more than 70 years, the United States "cannot afford to let it become obsolete", the deputy said.
World War II alone claimed between 60 to 80 million lives in about five years. For example, when few if any nuclear weapons can reach capitals without strategic warning, any indications of an attack or detonation might not require rapid action; but a situation in which both Russian Federation and America/NATO have fast-flying, stealthy nuclear delivery systems and relations are poor, crisis instability is high. It asserts that any North Korean nuclear attack against the US or its allies will result in "the end of that regime".

The review clarifies the USA will use nuclear weapons only in "extreme circumstances", but those circumstances could include "significant non-nuclear strategic attacks".
A potential spike in funding would likely funnel into New Mexico's laboratories, where Los Alamos National Laboratory and Sandia National Laboratories are collectively among the highest-funded nuclear weapons sites in the nation, with New Mexico raking in around $5 billion from the U.S. Energy Department annually - roughly $1 billion more than any other state. With less power and destruction, the low-yield option would potentially be more likely to be used, serving as an effective deterrent.
My view is that the use of or the threatened use of nuclear weapons in these circumstances simply aren't credible.
The proposals stem from concerns that Russian Federation may see current U.S. nuclear weapons as too big to be used. He said the missile would be fielded "in the near term", but he refused to be more specific.
Currently, maintenance and operation of our aging nuclear arsenal requires only 2-3 percent of the Defense Department's budget, which itself is a smaller share of the federal budget than during the Cold War.
The Trump Nuclear Posture Review not only rejects this logic, it ties our forward-deployed forces to NATO's strategic forces as part of the bloc's "supreme guarantee".
"No football team only plays defense", Mattis said.
US nuclear weapons have made the world safer and more peaceful.
