Are We Making Nuclear War More Likely ???

Under the great "peace president" (Obama ad-Dajjal), the US has embarked on an upgrade of its nuclear weapons:

The B61-12 is widely believed to be a new weapon. Being a guided nuclear munition, it can hit targets far more precisely than its predecessors. The capability to penetrate below the surface has significant implications for the hardened targets within the B61-12’s reach.

The "dial-a-yield" technology, the explosive force can be adjusted before launch. It is designed to have four selectable explosive yields: 0.3 kilotons (kt.), 1.5 kt., 10 kt. and 50 kt. This combination of accuracy and low-yield make the B61-12 the most usable nuclear bomb in America’s arsenal. The smaller yields and better targeting can make the arms more tempting to use – even to use first, rather than in retaliation, knowing the radioactive fallout and collateral damage would be limited.

The B61-12 will initially be integrated with B-2, F-15E, F-16, and Tornado aircraft. From the 2020s, the weapon will also be integrated with, first, the F-35A bomber-fighter F-35 and later the LRS-B next-generation long-range bomber. The US Air Force says it does not predict when the squadron of F-35s will be combat-proven, but that it is probably during one of its overseas deployments at the beginning of 2017. The new bombs lower the nuclear threshold or make the launching of a nuclear attack against Russia more likely.

You can bet your sweet bippy that Israel has such weapons, too.

Do we really want to make nuclear war easier to start and more likely to happen? I don't.

To the best of my knowledge, Russia and China have done nothing to harm the US. So why are we so eager to harass them and goad them into war?
