Generals in 'scrap Trident' call
Generals in 'scrap Trident' call: "The UK's nuclear deterrent should be scrapped, according to a group of retired senior military officers.
In a letter to the Times, Field Marshal Lord Bramall and Generals Lord Ramsbotham and Sir Hugh Beach denounce Trident, calling it 'irrelevant'."
See? The world is not 100% stark staring mad. Glimmers of rationality do exist.
In the end, it is all down to simple logic. If nuclear weapons will never be used, they are just a terrible waste of money. If it is possible that they could be used, then we must get rid of them forever.
