Then we use computers and simulations in lieu of testing. That seems reasonable…up to a point.
So why do we test our ICBMs, SLBMs, or bombers? To make sure they work.
So still no nuclear weapons tests? I wonder if a ‘must-test’ metric even exists.
The idea that the U.S. not testing will keep someone like Iran or Syria from pursuing a nuclear weapons program is absurd at every level.
