  1. For the same reason that we don’t invest in nuclear powerplants: A major problem keeping them secure and the likelihood that we might accidentally shoot ourselves in the foot. An accident with a regular bomb might just take out a building whereas an accident with a nuclear device will wipe out the entire country in a single blast.

  2. Why spend a $billion investing in the facilities to produce nuclear weapons that you are never (hopefully) going to use? Just what good are nuclear weapons? Out of 152 nations, only 9 have nuclear weapons.

    Just what would Singapore DO with nuclear weapons if it had any? They are NOT really good for much are they.

    It costs over a $billion to build all the infrastructure to build nuclear weapons, and thats ALL the facilities are good for, no other use. Each weapons cost you a $million on top of that? Don’t you have much better things to do with your money?

    Singapore has the funds only because they don’t waste them on nonsense projects that have ZERO benefit for the country.
