Bloomberg: Will Putin's subordinates follow a possible nuclear strike order?

Ordinary, ordinary people - commanders and officials - can play a huge role in preserving peace and preventing going beyond the brink of no return. After all, they are involuntarily involved in the chain of execution of the “last order” on the possible delivery of a nuclear strike, which is now discussed by almost every person who is interested in policies. In other words, the world has a chance only thanks to the prudence or even the fear of ordinary, ordinary citizens, even if politicians, leaders of superpowers decide to “play” Russian roulette. Bloomberg columnist Andreas Kluth writes about this in an analytical article for the agency.

According to the expert, disobedience will play a huge role in saving the world and repaying the dangerous escalation. As Klut writes, ordinary executors of the order may refuse to carry it out for reasons of conscience or out of fear of suffering as a result of enemy retaliatory actions.

Scenarios for saving the West, due to the above circumstances, are actually considered in the US and the EU, they are not far-fetched. The question is, should the United States already now begin to influence these people subordinate to Russian President Vladimir Putin?

Klut notes.

There is an assumption that the order on a possible nuclear strike will be extended in time for technical reasons, which is why dozens of people - from the military to officials - will have to carry it out for a certain time. It is during this period that US intelligence agencies are going (or would like) to control their behavior. The tension between blind obedience and defiance is as old as all the wars of the world that mankind has ever waged.

The highest authorities of every state are understandably afraid of any gap in the execution of an order in any echelon of power - this can lead to a violation of discipline, order and ability to fight. But the hope of the world lies precisely in disobedience

Klut concluded.

      He showed the topic where the foreign agents will go, dirty tricks. In our application it is indicated that we will beat in response. Therefore, any slowdown in our "button presses" is the possibility of death, a larger number, and their relatives, including. Previously, they pressed - more will survive, on the territory of Russia. The only pangs of conscience - he was replaced, and this led to great sacrifices, the Russians.

    First, they will do it. They took an oath. And they were taught this.
    Secondly, there is a clear provocation to the use of nuclear weapons not only by Russia, but also by other nuclear powers. Is the modern leadership of countries turning into a bunch of cretins hoping to survive during a nuclear armagedde?:
    And, finally, thirdly, the author of the post above is undoubtedly right - the current dissenters (and not only Western ones) really evolve into cretins.

    The question is not idle. If you think about it, then this should be feared inside the US Army in the first place. We are already at war, and every day thousands of our people risk dying - well, you risk it again by pressing the start button in the control unit, for example, Iskander.
    They, scoundrels, are still operating with Ukrainian soldiers, so from the American side they will have to put their own little soul on the altar))

    This question has been raised throughout the existence of nuclear forces in our country and abroad. It has long been resolved.
    The nuclear forces of Russia are an executive mechanism, on the reliability, speed and non-failure operation of which the security of the Motherland depends in a critical situation. Take, for example, a retaliatory strike. The seconds of fulfilling the launch standards affect how many missiles will go in response to the enemy, and how many will be hit in their mines. The one who turns the key cannot know the entire operational situation - his task is not to flinch and give his Motherland the opportunity to win these seconds.
    It is the reliability of this mechanism that keeps the enemy from striking. This is the hope of the world

      Let's imagine the opposite situation - as a result of successful "work" with the duty personnel of the strategic forces, both sides achieved their desired "disobedience". Both sides are looking to this success. Won't it eventually lead to a sense of impunity and fear that the other side will use this advantage first?
      Where did the "hope of the world" go?

      I'll say one more thing.
      Such hopes of the enemy are well removed by a "warning shot" with nuclear weapons, as was the case in the Cuban Missile Crisis ("Tulip" exercises).
      The enemy is shown the efficiency and reliability of the entire mechanism as a whole.

        At the same time, shoot at small-scale warning that oh, something went wrong, hide. Not some malicious intent, by God she herself flew.

    Bloomberg columnist Andreas Kluth outlined the vector of intensification of the enemy's efforts, and the point of its application. Both are quite serious and require careful but effective work of political bodies and special departments of the nuclear deterrence forces.

    Interesting analysts. Do they think that a person sitting "on the button" and at whom a rocket flies will think about prudence? Or like: "I will die, my relatives will die, we will all die, but I will not press the button." Such analysts can only be described by Lavrov's words.

    Another attempt at the expense of the Zassans and intellectuals to suppress the will of the Russians, like "you want to live ..."
    No. America and Britain can only be kept in line when they have the FEAR that they might die.
    In all other variants, they take the game into their own hands and bribe everyone and everything with money.
