DISASSEMBLY OF USA’S B53, LAST MOST POWERFUL NUCLEAR BOMB: A NECESSITY OF TECHNOLOGY OBSOLESCENCE

News of dismantling of B53 described as USA’s last most powerful nuclear bomb is not to “end war for peace” but, a “necessity of obsolescence of technology” as gathered from reliable sources; it is half a century old and many, if not most of the engineers who developed it have been retired or died. This means that, B53 is an aged piece of weapon though, the most powerful in its generation of US nuclear arsenal. Its bulky and ugly appearance as approximated to be the size of today’s mini van really suggests that, it is a technology to “retire”.

Taking the place and power of B53 in the US weapon system is the B83, a nuclear bomb more precise and of smaller size of 1.2 megatons which will incur lesser collateral damage than the 9 megatons B53.

Disassembly of B53 and soon commissioning of B83 is not at all to be viewed and construed as disarmament but, US maintaining of armaments. Continuous technology upgrading and stockpiling of new versions of weapons in the American arsenal and their superiority over other nation’s arm’s technology highly indicates US dominating leadership in the “arms trade” which makes “war a major business” of the US government. A first year high school student in the Philippines can arrive at this conclusion whenever, he/she is given the chance to do so. The world is not so, dumb to be able to arrive at same conclusion
