We need to be reducing — with a goal of completely doing away with — nuclear weapons, not adding to them. Do we even qualify as a civilized nation? We could be and should be trying to save our beautiful planet instead of heading toward total destruction through war or climate disturbances. I am 92 years old and have seen a lot in my lifetime, but never anything like what is going on in our world today. What has happened to common sense and cooperation?
