US Air Force B-52 Bombers to Bomb

43
For the first time since the 1991, the US Air Force is beginning to put the B-52 nuclear bombers capable of carrying nuclear weapon, transmits Lenta.ru report message of the Air Force General David Golffeyn.




According to the general, “there has not yet been an official order to bring the bombers into the 24-hourly alert, but preparations are already being made in this direction.”

In an interview with Defense One, Holfein noted that "in the world, there are people who openly talk about the use of nuclear weapons, it is important to stay on guard and think over new ways of being ready for different scenarios."

This is not a bipolar world, where there is only the United States and the USSR. There are other nuclear potential players.
added on.

The general did not name specific countries with America’s nuclear potential, but the article mentions North Korea’s fast-growing nuclear arsenal and the confrontation between US President Donald Trump and Pyongyang, as well as the increasingly powerful Russian armed forces.

The Boeing B-52 Stratofortress is a multifunctional heavy ultra-long intercontinental strategic bomber-rocket carrier of the 2 generation, which has been in service with the US Air Force since 1955. At subsonic speeds at altitudes up to 15 km, it is able to carry various types of weapons, including nuclear ones. The main task for which B-52 was developed was to deliver two high-power thermonuclear bombs to any point of the Soviet Union.

    So far, the mattresses themselves are most actively talking about the use of nuclear weapons, so let these B-52 patrol their borders and, if necessary, deliver a preventive strike laughing

        The fact of the matter is that they are not ready! They are confident in their superiority that they will not suffer! Brazenly provoke am

              That's right ... there is no doubt that if the US wants it, they will smash the DPRK into the trash - no other thing ... the price is different. As long as the Americans do not feel completely safe from a possible retaliatory strike, they will not strike ...

                So it’s right. It’s stupid to butt on your forehead and lay down thousands of your soldiers. It is necessary to create strategic superiority in the right direction.

                Until the Americans feel completely safe from a possible retaliation, they will not strike ...


                But it does not make sense to pull too much in this particular case: the further, the more nuclear weapons the DPRK has and, accordingly, the greater the risk of its use against the United States.

        Why does he lubricate a member before a date with Vaseline? Hmm .. Is it a date with a man? Nda, I lagged behind the new trends.

        I heard that option
        A guy is going on a date. Squirts cologne under the right armpit:
        - This is for the girl on the right.
        Strangles the left armpit with cologne:
        - This is for the girl on the left.
        Thought, thought and sprinkled cologne on the fly:
        - Just in case.
        I also thought and sprayed the cologne on the fifth point:
        - Cases are different.

          They didn’t meet the strip, removed the chassis, and then !!! - But this is not a ground attack aircraft, with a fighter - leaving under such a roll, with a turn at low speed, that it collapsed, having lost the wing.

            The mistake is definitely pilots. Under certain conditions, namely a large roll (with a glide naturally) leads to a change in the effectiveness of ailerons, at such wing spans it is significant, plus the twist of the wing at overloads to this pepelats not dreamed of .... All conditions are created, the presence of the pilot is not necessary .... , the natural reaction of the pilot to take the helms on himself in order to avoid collision leads to an increase in the roll, which is clearly seen in the video ... hi

                When he succumbed to gas, it was still possible to take measures, but instead of cleaning the roll, the steering wheel began to tear himself, the roll went to grow (described above), the height fell, seconds later it was no longer possible to give the steering wheel to remove the roll (no height) ... and further a chain reaction, the earth is approaching the helm on itself, the bank is bigger, the earth is closer, etc. hi

            This time decided to start a nuclear war? There is no doubt that Eun will use nuclear weapons ... Yes, of course, the United States can quickly erase the DPRK — but will they quickly erase the DPRK along with the PRC? And the return will not torture? And they don’t want a hydrogen explosion in the harbor of San Francisco or Los Angeles?
            And most importantly, is Trump enough strength to arrange a new Hiroshima after a 70-year hiatus? I think that no world elites will now go to a nuclear war - all the more so at hand with Japan - after the Hiroshima, Nagasaki and Fukushima, the Japanese still lacked the 4th nuclear cataclysm !!!

              China and the DPRK will not help, just like Russia; therefore, the DPRK is doomed - in case of war against it, the entire war machine of the USA, South Korea, Japan, plus the British Navy will join.

                Well, the United States can turn the DPRK into dust - but the whole question is WHERE DOES THIS RADIOACTIVE DUST FLY ??? If, for example, a cloud of radioactive fallout goes to Russia or China and falls there with radioactive rain, how will the Russians and Chinese react to this? If suddenly thousands of Russians or Chinese begin to die from radiation, how will their authorities react to this? If, for example, Russia bends as usual, then China will never !!!

                  And the most important intrigue of the conflict between the USA and the DPRK is not that the USA will attack or not, and not that the DPRK can use nuclear weapons or not, but that DPRK has secret plans for a nuclear attack on the US metropolis itself !!! More recently (before the September 11 attacks) New York and even more so (oh my God !!!) - the Pentagon building itself seemed to the whole world the most invulnerable and guarded objects in the world !!! But the September 11 attacks showed that this is all a myth - so why do we now think that the US coast is better protected? And these are all cities with a population of over one million - and in the event of a nuclear attack on them, the casualties will amount to tens and hundreds of thousands, at least !!!

      That is, they de facto recognized that there is no longer a unipolar world.

      The window dressing was when the Tomahawks shot off in Syria, and in cases with nuclear weapons, you should always keep the gunpowder dry and finger on the trigger.
      The concentration of NATO forces at the borders of Russia under various pretexts is obvious, and mattress mattresses who gave refuge to fascists are not worthy of unleashing a war suddenly and on a made-up pretext, is it enough for Powell to recall their vial and a piglet with a piece of tin from the bus and provocations with Boeings at different times?

    If the United States is confident that they will bomb someone with impunity, they will not wait for any reason. The return of the B-52 to the system means total despair and fear of inevitable retaliation.
    I think that the last hope will disarm the DPRK sanctions for the United States and then destroy them, without risking the very existence of the United States. I don’t know how much they will wait, but there will be no collapse of the DPRK due to the sanction. It is unlikely that perestroika will be organized in the DPRK, so it is necessary to prepare for peaceful joint coexistence.
