Nuclear materials-wise, we are fortunate not to have nuclear energy power plants yet in Oklahoma, but nationally the Nuclear Posture Review is a timely issue. Nuclear materials should be included in the review because we need to make the world a safer place by clamping down on nuclear materials worldwide.
Also, it is time to end dangerous Cold War thinking and work urgently to reduce the nuclear threat. The review is so critical; nuclear weapons are a liability. They are the only threat our military can’t handle. Our weapons won’t stop a suicidal terrorist.
In addition, we must work with Russia to take nuclear forces off dangerous “launch on warning” status which could lead to a catastrophic accidental or unintentional launch.
