The National Nuclear Security Administration announced the US had reduced its nuclear warheads stockpile. ++ Yet the US continues to upgrade its nuclear arsenal which is the world's largest. ++ Since the US has not ratified the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty, and has never committed to "No First Use of Nuclear Weapons," US policies could lead to an arms race with Russia, Syria, Iran and N. Korea. ++ For the sake of global security, the US should dismantle on a large scale and stop planning nuclear defense.
