If we disarm ourselves, how can we hunt for rogue nukes? It is like antihunting organization. They create the very disinterest, financial or political, in looking to protect the game revenues and its maintenance.
This program had nothing to do with disarming ourselves - the weapons used in this program were former Soviet weapons. Granted, the Soviet weapons were disabled as part of bilateral agreements in which we agreed to disarm some weapons as well, but this particular program was separate and apart from the initial disarmament issue.
