2) If Steve and co. HAVE changed their minds on this point, then all of this is not about building the bombs, but solely about secrecy, the mindwipe, and personal betrayal of Steve - in which case, this really shouldn't be SHIELD's first priority.
3) Even if Steve and his allies can deal with the Cabal killing the other Earth if that's the only available choice to save two universes, it's not like they should be okay with that staying the only option as opposed to working towards a better solution.
4) And even if they were okay with the solution, the people carrying it around are still a problem, at least for the long term. I mean, we can't really be saying that they trust Thanos and co. with the survival of the universe, and that they're confident the Cabal won't eventually either mess up or decide to end Earth/the universe just for kicks, can we?
Hickman also need to explain why other plans like secondary Earth, Rogue Planet, Exodus etc. won't work. Now we only have Kang's word for it, not very reassuring.
Remember for a long time people are saying why Hickman doesn't explain that Franklin can't solve everything for them? Then it was explained that he tried and failed? Hopefully same thing will happen again in near future.

When did this meeting happen? I'm forgettign plot points lol.
Spit Dat Kurt Vonnegut...
And if he's not okay with the greater good solution of destroying the other Earth, he wouldn't hesitate to take on the Cabal to stop them from doing it, either.
There's a lot of wholes in this plot and Steve's actions against the Illuminati is one of them. Maybe the age increase has gotten to him, but the once great heroic character I knew would not put the entire multiverse in jeopardy for a personal vendetta. That would be like Beast putting all of time and space in jeopardy by bringing characters into the future just to prove a point to Cyclops.
