Staying Nuclear - The right decision in an uncertain world

After listening to Tony Blair; statement today about replacing Trident, Iam convinced his logic is right on this issue and there is a need for a continuing submarine nuclear deterrent.

Of course Trident was xommissioned in the cold war, but likewise, Trident will still be in service until 2020 at least, and who knows what situations we may face in the world in another 15 years.

I agree that we cannot leave it to lady luck to hope we have a decent deterrent, likewise, if we want to be more independent of America, we cannot rely on sitting under the USA's nuclear umbrella either.

Of course, its a lot of money, but what price security, what price insurance against what might happen ?
