What should happen to the nuclear bombs that have been accidently lost, but their location known?
There have been some nuclear bombs that have been accidently dropped or lost and the generalized locations are known. Some of these nuclear bombs are alive and activated while some are not. One such nuclear bomb is off the South Carolina/Georgia coast. When the Soviet Union dissolved, there were some other bombs disappeared, which were said to be the size of suitcases.
IMO, all nuclear bombs in the world should be disabled, dismantled, or whatever. But that's not going to happen, so well... maybe we can at least disable and get rid of the ones that have been lost. That would be a step forward, wouldn't it?
So the new medical techniques for sucking the knowledge of how to build a thermonuclear weapon out of the heads of weapons designers has proven up to the task? Nuclear weapons are their own deterrent, it was a Cold War for a reason.
The reason for this question is that there are some nuclear bombs that have been ejected out of airplanes and have been in the mud, active. One of these bombs is off the coast of South Carolina and Georgia. Disturbing it could make it explode.
In order to further secure a peaceful relationship, we should reduce the expense of creating their own nuclear weapons and give these lost bombs to Iran.
Yeah! It's not like the US will need them since they have more than 2,000 active warheads
No better guarantor of peace than a loaded weapon.
The loaded weapon doesn't guarantee peace. It only guarantees time.
