In one sense no because they have not been replaced yet. In another sense, I hate to think that they will ever be used again, in which case they will just rot in their silos.

I think they are. Because U can't use them. If one country uses it then the other will and then the end of the world. It is just a -> Who has the bigger stick contest. Word From Africa:)

yeah they've had there day from no on wars will be fought with electronic weapons like EMP bombs whats the point in tottally destroying a country your invading when u can just make the defenders weapons useless??

I think it's very possible nukes could be used in the future. Just look at North Korea for example. Antiquated, not when the U.S is building new varities all the time.

I don't think the concept of nuclear weapons is antiquated. But some of the actual weapons in the field may be.

They will come up with something better and more technological

Something better? Define better. Actually H-bombs are more destructive. But when you get to the point of nukes. There's no point going further unless you want to destrroy whole planets.

Better: A more tactile, radiation free weapon that can create as much damage as a nuclear weapon of the current day can.

uh, H-Bombs are nuclear weapons. They use the conventional Plutonium to cause massive temperatures from fission to cause fusion with the Hydrogen atoms. If you want to think of it this way, H-Bombs are more nuclear than any other cuz it uses both forms of Nuclear alteration.

And yea, I've heard of those Delmar. I haven't seen much about them recently, I guess the problem they're running into is that they're hard to deploy because you can't send them shooting in like a missile. It has to be planted, armed, and detonated behind enemy lines. While that's not impossible, it's hard to do, dangerous, and could potentially get people killed. And the armed forces don't like taking risks like that.

Yeah, they're getting antiquated. That's why we're working on the new stuff, like sub-critical nukes.
Anti matter would be handy for making something more powerful, but more power isn't neccessarily what's needed.
There are designs (maybe even prototypes somewhere) for dirty bombs with very specific half lives to render an area uninhabitable. Until your troops move in.
