"Nuclear" thoughts of Donald trump

35
In the United States (and not only), they are actively discussing the tweet of the elected President Donald Trump. In his microblogging, Trump wrote the following: “The United States should significantly strengthen and expand its nuclear potential until the moment when the world comes to its senses regarding nuclear weapons". Earlier in one of his interviews, Trump suggested that, despite the substantial nuclear potentials of the United States, some of them "may not be capable."


"Nuclear" thoughts of Donald trump


One of the representatives of the headquarters of Trump - James Miller - was forced to give additional comments on the relative statements of his boss. Miller noted that we are talking about the threat of proliferation of nuclear weapons, and Trump is going to counter this threat.

Miller:
President-elect Trump had in mind the threat of the proliferation of nuclear weapons and the critical need to prevent them, especially among terrorist organizations, unstable regimes and rogue states.


It is worth noting that some time ago, in an interview with CNN, Trump said that it was necessary to think about abandoning the idea of ​​a “first, preemptive nuclear strike by the United States.” According to the president-elect, “it’s impossible to make an offensive factor out of a nuclear weapon, it should remain a deterrent factor”.

      Generally take away from them and forbid to have!

      Nuclear weapons in a constantly belligerent country - what kind of deterrence to talk about!

          Yes, because the liberals wallet is in the USA. Maybe a fool Clinton for the Russian Federation would be more advantageous than a team of Trump professionals. Trump understands that the Russian Federation would collapse, it is necessary to be friends with her and not to fight.

        the Yankees are the most irresponsible in the relationship of nucleonbaton. They will either lose, crash, or get drunk or stand up on duty. And you need to constantly shout about it from any platform.

    "Must strengthen and expand the nuclear deterrent capabilities."
    Somehow it’s not logical. All these build-ups will not sooner or later bring to good, once a year and the stick shoots, IMHO.

      you need to think about abandoning the idea of ​​a “first, proactive nuclear strike by the United States”. According to the president-elect, “An offensive factor cannot be made of nuclear weapons, it must remain a deterrent”.
      Well, who after that will say in America that Trump is not an agent of the Kremlin ?. This is exactly what Putin constantly talks to America. Yeltsin (the earth was glassy to him!) Did not say anything, drank vodka. The humpbacked dog didn’t speak out either, it just ruined the army. But the general secretaries spoke the same words directly. I can hear the last phrase right in the performance of Leonid Ilyich, and the first - in the performance of Nikita Sergeich ....

    With these bellicose statements by the leaders of the nuclear states, some kind of hysteria begins. Just yesterday, our Russian president at the expanded collegium of the Ministry of Defense noted that the Russian army is the strongest in the world, and called on to further strengthen the country's military potential. So it turns out that Trump and Putin "exchanged views" on the arms race. And then the State Department expressed its disagreement with Putin's opinion, and his official representative John Kirby called the US Armed Forces the best in the world. The discussion is going on only in words. But, do not lead the Lord to the fact that opponents, in order to clarify the truth in this matter, will move from words to deeds - then no one will seem a little. At ak - let them argue, even to the point of hoarseness.

      And Russia's exclusiveness is a disease of the Russian people.
      Exclusivity, or rather awareness of it, is not a disease, but normal national pride. Everyone has the right to consider himself exceptional. For example, I am sincerely convinced of the exceptional role of Russia in the process of historical development of the planet - throughout the entire period of our existence we have been a kind of stone on which we found various braids, thereby allowing us to maintain peace in the balance. And now our historical role consists precisely in this. However, I do not consider myself sick at all. smile
      Let them consider themselves exceptional, in a certain sense they are. But only in a certain and, I am afraid, far from as wide as they would like. smile

    As the president of his country, Trump expressed quite sensible thoughts. Another issue is that some of the technology for producing weapons-grade plutonium in the United States has been lost.

      "The last weapons-grade plutonium-producing reactor was shut down in the United States in 1992. In Russia, in 2010."No need, stocks have been accumulated.
      For example, the main TN ammunition for NATO aircraft: "The B61-4 warheads used in the B61-12 have four power options - 0.3, 5, 10, and 50 kilotons. "Here 0,3 kt is the initiating charge of weapons-grade plutonium itself. The critical mass is 5,6 kg, which is not at all a lot. Everything else is lithium deuteride, which is regenerated after the expiration date."

        Weapon-grade plutonium is regenerated, not lithium deuteride.

        Russia's weapons-grade plutonium reserves are estimated at 700 tons or about 100000 nuclear charges with capacities of up to 10 megatons each. This is enough to completely destroy all other countries combined.

        Weapon-grade plutonium reserves in the United States are estimated to be an order of magnitude less. This was probably meant by V. Putin when he declared Russian superiority in the military field.

          But Russia does not have enough money to build 100000 thermonuclear charges, the charges include not only Plutonium but also Uranus 238, Cobalt, Lithium 6,7 Beryllium, Bor Bismuth and so on - the device is very complex and accurate and therefore its cost exceeds billion rubles.

    I agree. And in general, Trump’s phrase itself (or how journalists conveyed / distorted it) is not very clear.

    But there was already a conversation about the service life of the nuclear arsenal. Then they extended the terms. And the expired ones have accumulated. "a certain part of them" may be incapable of combat. " There is nothing like that, of course you need to change.

    So we see that the nuclear doctrine of the SGA under any president remains the same. Accordingly, foreign policy will remain practically unchanged. Changes will only be in areas in the cat. they will "get on the nose", which they poke where they were not asked! As before, there will be conversations from a position of strength and this is dangerous for planet Earth. It's not easy to get off the freebie, you need to put your mind and work! And from this for 25 years, the SGA lost the habit. hi

    The United States has more than necessary containment potential. No one except the United States does national missile defense so that they will not receive anything from the growth of deterrence potential except for additional costs.
    They also will not get anything from tactical nuclear weapons, since they reduce the importance of technological superiority (electronics, aviation, large ships, and so on)

    Security guarantee m. only the conclusion of megalomania in strict isolation from the real world. And this affects the elite of the SGA and their support in NATO, the need for which, even theoretically, has long disappeared. However, the SGA keeps everyone there on a short leash! This is a real security threat to the world, not Russia and China at all. hi

    and how do you know this?
    but not worth the task, make 100.000 extra charges.
    there are savings. for "friends" and "partners" tsc.
