Hillary Clinton shows dangerous lack of knowledge of nuclear deterrence policy


Hillary Clinton, when asked about the prospect of creating nuclear tipped cruise missiles, replied,

“The last thing we need,” she told the audience, “are sophisticated cruise missiles that are nuclear armed.”

showing a dangerous lack of understanding of nuclear deterrence.

The idea behind nuclear deterrence is to make an enemy think that even if they launched a surprise nuclear attack on the US, enough of our nuclear assets would survive to devastate them in return. We have three legs of our nuclear triad--land based ICBMS, submarine launched ballistic missles, and nuclear weapons delivered by bombers.

Our submarine launched ballistic missile deterrent is in the best shape--it is hard to locate and destroy our nuclear missile submarines. But we only have a limited number of them.

Our land based ICBM's are quite vulnerable. The enemy knows exactly where they are and could take them out in a first strike.

Our bomber wings are also very vulnerable. We have a number of B-1 bombers which are over 30 years old and are not difficult to shoot down. We have a much larger number of B-52's which are over 50 years old, very slow, not stealthy at all, and very easy to shoot down. We also have stealth bombers, but less than 20 of them. Most of our bomber force is relatively easy to detect on radar and shoot down.

So right now only one leg of our nuclear triad, our small submarine ballistic missile fleet, is secure. When Hillary Clinton is asked about cruise missiles, she reacts negatively towards them, even though they would immensely enhance our deterrance. If she knew anything about cruise missiles she would know that they fly low, under radar, and are very hard to detect and shoot down. Planes armed with air launched cruise missiles can launch from safety hundreds or even thousands of miles away. Enemies would know that with a large cruise missile inventory, their chances of stopping all our missiles would be almost zero, and that would enhance deterrence.

That's why Russia, China, and other countries are developing cruise missile technology rapidly. But Hillary Clinton isn't interested in a strong national defense.
