Is there any good reason that America is spending trillions on nuclear weapons, now?

How should others react? Can anyone dare to?

Weapons systems get old and outdated and have to be replaced

[@1201621,MotherHubbard] yep tHe lessons of WWII can NEVER be forgotten. Deterrence is how you play the game

[@113373,TexChik] good to know. Many people would be motivated to fight such systems! Once you get a weapon, you have never put it down. Good to spread the word.

[@1201621,MotherHubbard] really ? I have many weapons and none are in my hand at the moment .

🇺🇦🌎🇺🇸 many in the world are thankful that USA maintains a credible deterrent force, nuclear and conventional, to counterbalance the empire building ambitions of russia and China.
I'm not sure it's necessarily still a "good reason" but your 2nd and 3rd questions lay out the traditional justification.

I'm not that clear on where we are with new nuclear weapons these days, but I suspect we should be spending more on cyber than we probably are.

Increasingly, it seems like corps are becoming more important than governments and money more important than guns/bombs.

Coronavirus is the new weapon of choice, biological.
