Trump ordered an "inventory" of US nuclear potential

25
The American president ordered a kind of "inventory" of the American nuclear potential. The corresponding document was received by US Secretary of Defense James Mattis, who in turn ordered to begin an assessment of the state of the United States nuclear forces. It should be noted that the last time such an assessment was conducted in 2010 year.

to Reuters leads the statement of the head of the Pentagon press service Dana White:
This will be completed by the end of the year, then the final report will be presented to the president on his personal instructions.


Trump ordered an "inventory" of US nuclear potential


The head of the Pentagon said that the assessment of the state of US nuclear forces is given in connection with the need to understand how "the United States is provided with protection against external threats." One of the threats in this case is once again called the DPRK, and it is added that Pyongyang "is about to conduct regular nuclear tests."

Most recently, American and South Korean sources said that tests at the Pungi Rea test site will take place on April 15. Now announced another date - 25 April. North Korean diplomats said the DPRK’s nuclear testing was an internal DPRK affair, and the country would defend its sovereignty by all available means, conducting tests when it deems necessary.

The day before, the DPRK head Kim Jong-un strongly condemned the US missile attack on Syria and expressed support for Bashar Assad and the Syrian people in resisting the terrorist threat. According to the DPRK national television, under the terrorist threat, Kim Jong-un understands the activities of the United States in different regions of the world.

                It will be ridiculous if with such an inventory the debit with the loan does not converge.
                And okay, if some bomb disappeared, it’s just an international panic, someone will earn a couple of extra billion.
                But if there is an extra bomb ... That's all. Arctic fox. The US economy will not survive this. After all, where there is one - there are a hundred. And hell knows where they are now.

      Such estimates exist and are constantly being updated: nuclear weapons are not an M-16 stockpile.
      The decree is Trump's PR move.

    WHAT!? It turns out that the United States does not know how many nuclear weapons they have. WOW! Or Trump believes that part of the nuclear weapons has decayed, dried out, dissolved in the air. And that there is no daily monitoring of nuclear weapons - as if we are talking about weapons cartridges.

      That's just the point that "has dried up". The freshest nuclear charge in 1991 release.
      Perhaps Comrade Eun is armed with a more powerful weapon !!!

      And that there is no daily monitoring of nuclear weapons - as if we are talking about weapons cartridges.

      In 2007, Yusovtsy mistakenly managed to hang 52 real thermonuclear cruise missiles AGM-6 ACM on the B-129 instead of training ones and send this B-52 through the whole country.
      And only after 36 hours one of the officers accidentally noticed that the missiles on one and the other wing are different from each other.
      They slipped through everything - so it’s not surprising if they don’t find something during the inventory (by the way, they have dropped a few more “not found” bombs).

    He knows everything perfectly. Opychny PR move, as at all times. And there is quite a decent reason - the DPRK nuclear missile program. It was always so when it was necessary to knock money out of Congress. There was talk of a missile lag behind the USSR and a lag in the bombers.

    Do you think our charges are much more recent? And as for Yun’s powerful weapon .... The maximum that he exploded was a charge of either 30 or 40 kt. Of course, this is a more powerful charge than the American 475-kiloton
