How U.S. And Russian Nuclear Arsenals Evolved #infographic

Seventy-five years after Hiroshima's atomic bombing, more than 13,000 nuclear warheads are now scattered all over the world from silos in Montana to remote corners of European airbases and even to the ocean depths where ballistic missile submarines are almost impossible to detect. In 1945, Hiroshima was the first of two atomic bombings and involved a 15-kiloton device, whereas the gun used in the Nagasaki attack three days later had a yield of 22 kilotons. New nuclear weapons are much better than the U.S.

Updates in Washington D.C. Added to those problems with the Trump administration withdrawing from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Powers Treaty and now threatening to withdraw from New Start, which restricts US and Russian nuclear missile deployment to 1,550 each. President Trump 's reason for this is that in the future China should be part of all these talks and until now Beijing has categorically denied any participation. The Treaty expires in February, weeks after the presidential term commences. Trump has also opposed Iran's nuclear agreement, and recently withdrawn the US from the Open Skies Treaty, accusing Russia for failing to abide by it.
