Keep them. They are ugly things but that is precisely why we need them. I think we can all agree that these are crazy times, and in many cultures a show of strength is the only respected language.

Unilaterally shedding nuclear weapons is not advisable, even if we just consider the dynamics among allied States. Whenever disarmament has been accomplished successfully it has always been a result of solid planning and negotiation, resulting in lasting agreements.

Thank you. And this is not one of those times to scale down actually it's one of those times to be on guard. Governments have a job: to keep their people safe.

Keep them. Anybody who is a pacifist has to have their e
head in the sand. What about all those people that ISIS is killing right now. If they are pacifists will that keep them or being shot? What about that aid worker that they killed who was just helping people? Did all of his charity keep him from being killed? In this crazy world you need deterrents.

I hope that we never have to use them but something like that would hopefully keep enemies away and save our country.

Keep and seek to reduce bilaterally. It's a much held view I know, but it's the conclusion I've come to. Not very sexy, but probably advisable.

Everybody in the world wants to get rid of nuclear weapons; they're evil and will destroy the world we live in. For me the truth is somewhere in between ditching and keeping. Just as after the cold war we should try to scale down and reduce. To unilaterally ditch them is not a smart move. Some people feel that that's simply leading by example but I think it's a bit naive.

Nothing should ever make us forget that nukes are evil to the bone and the technology behind them should have nvr happened that way. We need rid of them asap but in a planned way.

Bump.

This matter is being voted on by MPs in parliament today. Do you still feel the same as you did?
