    There's no need for the massive nuclear arsenal we currently possess, its a money sink, and their purpose of deterrance and MAD against any one nation would be as much served at 2000 or 1000 nuclear weapons as at the current 5000+

    That said the amount we keep should of course be modernized.

    Having thousands of nuclear weapon sounds silly therefore we see a depletion of nuclear missiles from both Russia as well as US in the recent past .
    It will also cut the defence bugdet to some extent .

    It will take time to build trust... We dont trust china. We will think 100 times before taking any step... And even its said that world was 3 will start from asia... Asia is kind of arms race... After every two days you will see new test of any hardware or new jets contract...

    Its not failed its costly and costly to maintan too... That jet can beat the s#it out of any jet in the world... 1 sqdnt of f22 it enough for small country
