Why Do We Need More?

The government is going ahead with a nuclear "modernization" program that will cost an estimated $1 trillion – and make the unthinkable all too thinkable.

"Precision" and "miniaturized" nukes are slated to be added to our already huge nuclear arsenal, tempting policymakers and the military to actually use them.

Instead of achieving the dream shared by Ronald Reagan and Barack Obama, we are going backwards – back to the bad old days of a world terrorized by the specter of nuclear war.

Help us stop the madness. Help us educate the American people. Help us put an end to this gift to the military-industrial complex.
