👎🏻 H.R.1086 AKA “Hold the Low-Yield Nuclear Explosive (LYNE) Act👎🏻
I’m in STRONG opposition to the Representative Lieu’s House Bill H.R. 1086 AKA the “Hold the Low-Yield Nuclear Explosive (LYNE) Act” which would prohibit the provision of funds for the research, development, production, and deployment of the Trident D5 low-yield nuclear warhead.
Sponsoring Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) bill to prohibit the research, development, production, and deployment of low-yield nuclear warheads for submarine-launched ballistic missiles is nothing more then a further attempt to reinstate the Obama philosophy of reducing the U.S. military to a “Second Rate” military force.
We must have a capability of a deterrence weapon to respond to the threat that any potential foreign nuclear adversary, Russian or Chinese or any other future nuclear capable nation. President [Vladimir] Putin announced as far back as April of 2000 that the Russian doctrine will be to use a low-yield nuclear weapon on the battlefield in case of a conventional overmatch with an adversary.
The U.S. needs low-yield nuclear weapons to deter adversaries, especially Russia. These weapons are part of an “escalate to deescalate” strategy that’d avoid all-out nuclear war.
