United Kingdom/Nuclear weapons

i wasnt aware at how much this was costing.

''The current Trident system cost £12.6bn (at 1996 prices) and costs £280m a year to maintain. Options for replacing Trident range from £5bn for the missiles alone to £20-30bn for missiles, submarines and research facilities. At minimum, for the system to continue safely after around 2020, the missiles will need to be replaced.''

Thats alot of money! Will they ever be used? should we get rid of them?

They are not designed to be used. They are designed to deter. They should be replaced as necessary.

It's going to be just as expensive to decommission. And we wouldn't have Trident.

I don't agree with it but we're to far down the road.

Waste of money, any nuke attack is likely to be from a terrorist group setting it off at ground level
So who are you going to retaliate against?


Canada?

TBH we need to invest in more, Because with North Korea vs South Korea it's all going to kick off..!!!

We could always sell them to Bin Laden.

Faulty logic.

We are stuck in a rut - too expensive to replace, too expensive to decommission and too expensive to renew - we just have to choose the cheapest - renew.

The cheapest replacement would be what Israel is rumoured to do - have a suitcase nuke placed in every major capital city - usually in the embassy if they have one.
