It seems it would a lot easier to be President if in a time of crisis one wasn't asked if the Peacekeeper MX missile in the inventory should be used to put down aggression against USA. The MX was designed to be an accurate first-strike weapon. It had low yield RV’s. What did GWB do? He negotiated them away so he would not have to use them in a time of crisis.
I guess it is not such a bad thing to not have the nukes to use, unless of course one needs them.
BTW, Jimmy Carter was in office at the outset of the MX development. Reagan made it happen.
Today, however, the clock is being wound back to before Reagan...to our extreme danger. The Russians for example, are busy deploying an equivalent mobile missile system to the MX...the Topol-M.... while we are dismantling systems...they are deploying.... H'mmm.
