If we need to use it, it's not a deterrent is it?

If we decide to use it first, then you have to be a psychopath to kill hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians.

I don't buy the "influence" argument either - strikes me very much as willy waving.

Get rid. Spend the money on the armed forces - like making sure they're properly equipped and looked after post-conflict etc. And then there would still be billions left over to spend on other stuff.
