Representative Ted Lieu (D-CA-33) has introduced HR1086 –the Hold the LTNE (low-yield nuclear explosive) Act of 2019. This Act would prohibit the production and deployment of a “more usable,” low-yield submarine-launched nuclear warhead (called the W76-2)that was given the go-ahead last year’s Nuclear Posture Review. HR1086 was introduced by Rep Lieu and Rep Adam Smith with 29 additional co-sponsors.(All Democrats)
According to President Trump this low-yield option will make a U.S nuclear strike more “credible,” which means more likely to occur. This lowers the threshold for a conventional military conflict to become a nuclear war. Call your Representative and ask him/her tp co-sponsor H.R. 1086.
