The United States is to treat its nuclear arsenal to the
costliest modernization process ever, with the projected expenditure
estimated to stand at USD hundreds of billions.

The Washington Post reported the prospect of the wholesale
overhaul on Saturday, saying the country’s 5,113-strong arsenal of
nuclear warheads is to undergo an upgrade and maintenance process as
part of the plan.

The paper added that the plan also includes renovation of the aging nuclear facilities, and replacement of old delivery systems.

The daily withheld the figure on the price tag, but Washington
think-tank Stimson Center has estimated the cost to stand at USD 352
billion in the least over the next decade. Others have said the figure
could far exceed the amount.

“I’ve been doing this for 20 years, and I haven’t seen a moment like
this,” said Thomas P. D’Agostino, who leads the National Nuclear
Security Administration (NNSA).

The stockpile houses seven types of weapons, upgrading only the B61
thermonuclear bomb among which is likely to cost USD 10 billion over
five years, while Washington would have to lavish USD 110 billion to
build 12 replacements for the aging Ohio-class submarines.

The country is, meanwhile, spending USD 162 million per airplane to
build a nuclear-capable fleet of the F-35 strike aircraft to replace the
existing warplanes.

The US is the only country to have ever used atomic bombs against another nation.

The prospective overhaul flies in the face of the country’s
persisting economic woes and the international calls for a
nuclear-weapon-free world.
