On June 25, 2019, the national office of Physicians for Social Responsibility (www.psr.org) announced this good news:
U.S. House votes to stop new nuclear weapons in Trump’s budget
The so-called “low-yield” nuclear weapon (W76-2) would NOT be a step toward peace, but rather a nuclear weapon that a president and the Pentagon would consider more “usable” and therefore more likely to be used. Realistic people recognized that if this “usable” nuclear weapon were used, it would rapidly escalate into an all-out nuclear war. Therefore, the peace movement and other reasonable people have been opposing it. Now the U.S. House has zeroed-out its funding.
The article at the link below also says: “[T]he House Defense Appropriations budget contains no money for deploying the low yield weapon. House Appropriations also excludes research and development spending for any weapon that would violate the Intermediate Range Nuclear Forces Treaty.”
The article includes more information and ends with this:
