Nuclear Weapons

  • U.S. Nuclear Weapons Not Tested in Nearly Three Decades

    September 23, 1992 — date of the last U.S. nuclear test — 28 years ago.

    Nuclear weapon scientists and strategists are increasingly concerned about the safety and reliability of U.S. nuclear weapons, none tested in nearly three decades, obeying the unratified Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty (CTBT).

    CTBT was the bright idea of President Bill Clinton and anti-nuclear ideologues, increasingly dominant in a radicalized Democratic Party that would have the U.S. lead the way toward President Obama’s "world without nuclear weapons" even though Russia, China, North Korea and Iran are not following.
