BUSHINGTON, D.C.(DOMINION OF CHENEY)-- White
House officials, along with other experts,
are saying that America's nuclear arsenal is
old and obselete. Scientists have been called
upon to create a new generation of atomic weapons
that are more reliable, sturdier, and which will
have a longer life expectancy.
According to federal officials, this program will
shrink the nuclear arsenal and cut down the high
cost of maintenance.
The scientists will be working at three nuclear
weapons facilities -- Los Alamos, Livermore, and
Sandia, with a budget of only nine million dollars.
Bomb experts working at these securely guarded,
high-tech facilities are now poring over top-
secret weapons data looking for ideas on how to
create their new designer nuclear missiles.
The start-up group will be about 100 scientists,
but the cadre is expected to grow in the next
ten years, and which will result in a number of
prototype warheads, and, according to federal
officials, will be a change in weapons design.
The bomb makers have for decades, attempted to
incorporate technologies and creativity to
come up with new, innovative methods to create
new state-of-the-art streamlined nuclear weapons,
which resulted in the warheads being lighter in
weight, more powerful, and small enough to fit
twelve of them on top of a small missile.
