Military Review

The head of the Pentagon spoke about the training to repel North Korean missiles

The United States military regularly conducts training to repel possible missile attacks from the DPRK. RIA News Pentagon chief James Mattis statement.

On Monday during the hearings, the senators inquired from the defense minister whether there was a plan in the Pentagon in case of a missile attack from North Korea, stressing that it would then be “not minutes, but minutes.”

In any case, the president will raise. I can say that we train this (actions in the event of a rocket attack) constantly,
said Mattis.

According to the minister, first of all "tracking stations and anti-missiles located in Alaska and California will be involved." Then the president of the country "will be presented with a wide range of options" for retaliatory actions, including jointly with the US allies in the region, by which Washington traditionally means South Korea and Japan.

Recall the situation on the Korean Peninsula seriously worsened in 2017 year in connection with a series of missile and nuclear tests conducted by Pyongyang. This provoked an exchange of bellicose rhetoric between the United States and the DPRK.

        Hey. Well, the Yankees are not worth blaming naivety. The same Mattis the other day announced his right to press a button to launch a preemptive strike, i.e. appropriated the function of commander in chief, which, according to the constitution, belongs to the president and even then with the permission of the Senate.

      "Take off your pants - do it once! Pampers take off - two! Refuel!"
      "Sergeant! Maybe all the same gas masks?"
      "To leave!"
      "Yeiss, sir!"

      Eun's song:

      "Slowly rockets float away,
      Meet with them you do not wait.
      And although America is a little sorry,
      Europe is ahead .... "

      In general, it’s not very funny, in fact ....

      On Monday, during the hearing, the senators asked the Minister of Defense if there is a plan in the Pentagon for a missile attack from North Korea, while emphasizing that the discussion would then be “not about days, but about minutes”

      Do not understand. As against Russia, there are so many missile defense areas, ships with IJIS and anti-ballistic missiles.
      And here are a few missiles with unknown TTX and sheer fear ?!
      What, praised missile defense fiction ?!

    Then the president will be “presented with a wide range of options” for response

    And the options will be to determine the nearest bunker and immediate evacuation?

    During World War II, Japan had a small detachment that, with the help of high-altitude balloons, slowly bombed the United States. Before the war, a constant high-altitude air current was determined. A ball was launched into it. The damage was minimal. Several injuries for all the time.
    Now in the era of nuclear weapons, the damage will be clearly higher. DPRK may well take advantage of this example. Cheap, angry, when used together with a missile strike, these balls can easily reach the right place.

    This is called complacency. If the Americans were not afraid, then they would have long ago struck with cruise missiles and aircraft, because Koreans infringed on "hegemonic pride."

      Now they have begun to prepare specifically for striking — they have lowered Syria, for which they are now untied in the DPRK.

    The same Mattis recently announced his right to press a button to launch a preemptive strike,

    The right to start a war can and is. But the right to finish it is not.

    wide range of options

    That is, there is still no concrete plan of action, somehow due to circumstances)))

    Did I understand correctly? Trump is regularly thrown out of bed in the middle of the night and kicked into the bunker. And so CONSTANT, day after day? Damn, how they all started ....
