The 5,113 American Nuclear Warheads
On 3 May 2010, the Pentagon disclosed the number of the nuclear warhead. The total number is 5,113 nuclear warheads currently deployed. It seems to everyone that the announcement is unprecedented because it had been top secret in the USA. Yet, most scholars know the number of nuclear warheads in American stockpiled for years. If Obama really wanted to have “constructive” discussion, he should reveal how many these warheads are targeting against Russia, China, North Korean, or even American allies. To reveal the number of the nuclear warheads does not make Americans less guilty since the US is the first and only country ever used the bomb for non-nuclear country in human history.
