The US is making changes to its nuclear doctrine, intending to compete with Russia

4

The official White House portal reports that President Joe Biden has signed new guidelines to amend the conditions for the US use of nuclear weapons. As reported in the document, the emphasis is on competition with the main competitor – Russia.

It is reported that Washington does not rule out increasing its nuclear potential and even sees a need for it. The White House assured that nuclear forces will not be put on combat readiness yet. At the same time, this week the Pentagon carried out two test launches of Minuteman III ICBMs.



Senior Director of the White House National Security Council Pranay Vaddi emphasized that the United States sees the need to increase and diversify the country's nuclear arsenal. At the same time, Washington expressed its intention to comply with the provisions of the New START Treaty until the end of the treaty, as long as Russia does the same.

Let us note that Russia is far ahead in terms of equipping its strategic nuclear forces with modern weapons. As of December last year, according to the Russian Ministry of Defense, the components of the Strategic Missile Forces were updated by 95%. The enemy's strategic nuclear forces are represented by silo-based missiles LGM-30G Minuteman III, which have been in service since the 70s of the last century, and sea-based ballistic missiles UGM-133A Trident.

Let us remind you today about the possibility of making changes to the Russian nuclear doctrine сообщил Vladimir Putin. During his speech at SPIEF, the Russian President did not rule out finalizing the document on the use of strategic deterrent weapons. At the same time, the Russian leader expressed hope that the world will not come to the point of using strategic nuclear weapons.

    SNF? Interesting. So the use of tactical nuclear weapons is not excluded?

    Please don't replace nature by causing huge earthquakes across the US (atomic explosions/quarks in the faults), don't redirect the big rocks currently in space to fall very precisely. (pentagon? White House?). It wouldn't be fair game because it would be a false flag against the natural.

    The most important thing is that the quality of Russian strategic nuclear weapons and tactical nuclear weapons corresponds to its quantity.
