The United States intends to increase their nuclear arsenal, as Huffington Post reports sourcing the project of the Nuclear Posture Review.

In particular, the document advocates for increasing American nuclear arsenal, euphemizing a euphemism “low-yield” missiles with the word “supplements". The underestimation comes in proportion as the bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki are technically “low-yield”. The review states that the country needs them to deter Russia.

“Russia’s belief that limited nuclear first use, potentially including low-yield weapons, can provide such an advantage is based, in part, on Moscow’s perception that its greater number and variety of non-strategic nuclear systems provide a coercive advantage in crises and at lower levels of conflict. Correcting this mistaken Russian perception is a strategic imperative,” the review says.
