re: #622 lawhawk
One of the probelems with the warheads is the radioactive decay of the nuclear material in the warheads. If the isotope mix changes too much they might not work as expected. The solution is to take the material out, reprocess it, add some fresh stuff, and put the warheads back together. At the same time, a lot of the electro-mechanical compopnensts may have deteriorated and should be replaced. Obama’s peace-camp would rather just scrap the weapons and are using this as an excuse to let physics do the job for them.
