Lost Bomb

The BBC has told a story about an American nuclear bomb lost in the ice in Greenland since 1968. This may very well be an environmental hazard, as said in the article to which I have a link. However, as far as I know about nuclear weapons, they need to be re-armed about once every two years to be functional. This means that even though a terrorist would now get hold of this weapon, it would not be functional. Parts of it may be corroded, as well. I am not afraid that anybody who should not have a nuclear bomb would get hold of this one and threaten to use it.
