I'm against sloppy, emotional thinking.
I am against the whole cliche of the moment.
Deterrence itself is not a preeminent value; the primary values are safety and morality.
Anything that reduces war-related destruction should not be considered altogether immoral.
World War I broke out largely because of an arms race, and World War II because of the lack of an arms race.
Nuclear war is such an emotional subject that many people see the weapons themselves as the common enemy of humanity.
Human and moral factors must always be considered. They must never be missing from policies and from public discussion.
Nuclear weapons are intrinsically neither moral nor immoral, though they are more prone to immoral use than most weapons.
