The Pentagon announced a possible accidental launch of nuclear missiles at the enemy


The US military and power engineers admitted that accidental launches of land-based nuclear missiles are possible. Now they are asking the US Congress for money to modernize the strategic arsenal.


It became known that an unclassified but closed five-page report for Congressmen was prepared in May 2020 by the Pentagon and the US Department of Energy's National Nuclear Security Administration (responsible for developing nuclear weapons). The document outlined a picture of a possible nuclear apocalypse, if funds are not urgently found for a new development program. Both departments confirmed that there is a real danger of an erroneous launch of intercontinental missiles in silos, a few minutes after receiving a warning of an enemy attack.

The document also spoke about the program to develop a new nuclear warhead W93, which will cost taxpayers $ 14 billion and was called a "new weapon." This warhead will need to create a new carrier that will take off from submarines. They did not forget about new nuclear weapons for strategic aviation.

According to some experts, if the military and power engineers succeed in convincing the US Congress, then they can deliberately leave vulnerabilities in the future, for the elimination of which money will again be required after a while. In fact, this is blackmail, since in the last three decades there have been no serious incidents at all.

It should be noted that this report coincided with the statements of representatives of the US administration that the White House is considering the feasibility of resuming nuclear tests. The last time, the 1054th in a row, the United States conducted a test of a nuclear charge on September 23, 1992 at a test site in Nevada. It has become a symbol of the official end of the Cold War.

Thus, Washington decided to "send a powerful signal to Moscow and Beijing" that the Americans are dissatisfied with the old agreements on strategic stability and security, as well as limitations on strategic offensive arms. The US does not hide that they want to "figure it out for three" and involve China in future agreements with Russia.

    It's funny to read this a priori. The nuclear warhead is placed on a silo-based missile just before launch.
    So, either the rocket will take off accidentally, but empty, or with a warhead, but not accidentally.)

      You really do not weave a gag, there are missiles on alert in full gear, and this is the majority of the existing US nuclear weapons forces ... The storage rooms are for aviation use and for the deployment of additional forces with nuclear weapons ... Maybe in Israel most missiles without warheads with nuclear weapons , so this is a hidden and unauthorized weapon, therefore, perhaps, they are stored separately ...

            And how did the domestic system of guaranteed retaliation, nicknamed the "dead hand" in the West, work then (although, most likely, continues to work)? Are warheads installed there, too, before launch? And another question: how long does it take to install the warhead according to your version - no more than a minute, probably? Indeed, when a missile strike is detected, the time for launching missiles is limited to units of minutes, winked it turns out that you are talking nonsense - the missile on alert is not the same as with the warhead, it has a preliminary target in it.

      - but how will this affect the prevention of a "nuclear apocalypse"? In Moscow, what - will they wait until the missiles fly closer so that they can see through binoculars whether the warheads are installed or not? request

        Is this really a conversation? It's about the accidental launch of a rocket. Not ten "random launches".

          In your opinion, the missile is in the launch silo, but not on alert? In what years did you serve, in the 60s?

    And the money will be printed again at our expense.
    Data on the US economy for the 2nd quarter has just been released. On an annualized basis (if the trend continues), the decline in GDP will be 32,9%. According to the IMF, the fall will be 37%.
    After the stock market crash of 1929, the decline was 3,5% in 37 years.
    I recently wrote that the overall drop in GDP in the United States will be at least 50%, they did not believe me, they talked about, maximum, 5%.
    It's time to develop a new warhead.

      This is a good sign - a sign of the "maturation" of the society. lol In such a way, you look, and in the election promises of "self-nominated candidates" will not believe. smile

    They will explode faster at startup and several at once.
