Trump’s new nuclear strategy draws blistering criticism from arms control experts

 US arms control groups have condemend the new nuclear weapons strategy announced by administration of President Donald Trump, saying it could raise the risk of nuclear war.

(Web Desk)  The latest policy was revealed on Friday in a Pentagon policy statement known as the Nuclear Posture Review (NPR).

The new policy, which came largely to counter Russia, effectively ends Obama-era efforts to reduce the size and scope of the US arsenal and minimize the role of nuclear weapons in defense planning.

It also cast China as a potential nuclear adversary, saying the US arsenal is tailored to “prevent Beijing from mistakenly concluding” that it could gain advantage by using its nuclear weapons in Asia, or that “any use of nuclear weapons, however limited, is acceptable.”
