Democrats are trying to thwart Trump's plan to create a new rocket

15
Democratic Congressmen of both houses of the American Parliament prepared a bill designed to prevent the implementation of the Donald Trump administration’s plan to create a Trident D5 rocket for nuclear strikes from submarines, reports RIA News.




Earlier, the American press reported that the White House intends to violate restrictions on the use of nuclear weapons and to create a new nuclear warhead with a low-power charge, which will be used on the updated Trident II (D5) missiles. The main goal of such a step is to "contain Russia" from the possible use of certain tactical warheads in Europe. In addition, the US administration plans to expand the list of conditions that allow the use of a nuclear arsenal. One of these could be the response to an adversary’s non-nuclear strike.

A bill drafted by congressmen is aimed at banning this development.

According to the Democrats, the new weapon reduce the threshold for the use of nuclear weapons and significantly increase the chances of an incorrect assessment of the situation, which, ultimately, can lead to a full-scale nuclear conflict.

Lawmakers point out that low-power submarines equipped with nuclear warheads have no precedent in the US stories, and the administration should abandon the idea of ​​increasing the likelihood of nuclear war and weakening the security of the United States.

Based on the above, the authors of the bill insist on banning the financing of work on the development of low-powered nuclear warheads, their production and deployment on submarines.

      Himself in shock. While there are two versions, the first: it’s a pity to part with life when everything is already there. (here I really don’t want to fly out of garbage) and the second: all the same, pump Trump, it’s already in their blood and goes automatically ...

        So they Trump except that washcloths in the pot with soup do not throw.
        Or maybe they throw it up :) Melania is tired of complaining.
        When she comes to the kitchen, if before that Hillary cooked breakfast there - all the crumbs, sausage skins and the like are usually neatly swept under the Trump table.

      The usual undercover fuss seasoned with sauce from all kinds of applications that in any case will not be realized

    Interestingly, the editors at least read the articles they post. Well, at least on the compatibility of the topic of the article with the title?
    The title says Democrats are trying to frustrate Trump's plans to create a new new Trident D5 for nuclear submarine attacks
    The text deals with a bill prohibiting the creation of small and ultra-small warheads.

    Earlier, the American press reported that the White House intends to violate restrictions on the use of nuclear weapons and to create a new nuclear warhead with a low-power charge, which will be used on the updated Trident II (D5) missiles. The main goal of such a step is to "contain Russia" from the possible use of certain tactical warheads in Europe. In addition, the US administration plans to expand the list of conditions that allow the use of a nuclear arsenal. One of these could be the response to an adversary’s non-nuclear strike.

    A bill drafted by congressmen is aimed at banning this development.

    So what are they going to ban? Creating a new missile, which, incidentally, will be designated Trident E6, and not Trident D5 or new warheads? Plans for the creation of new warheads IW-1, IW-2 and IW-3 provide for the creation of three types of warheads to replace the strategic of the existing warheads. But not one of them is planned for small and ultra low power
    The ban was imposed back by HZ when the Obama’s EMNIP on the creation of nuclear munitions with capacities not even in kilotons, but in hundreds of tons of TNT equivalent. But such charges are not intended to be destroyed by SLBMs. Some kind of muddy article
