The Pentagon introduces 14-day quarantine for the Navy and all the forces of the "nuclear triad"

The Pentagon has decided to conduct a coronavirus test of the entire personnel of the Navy and the forces of the "nuclear triad." This was announced by Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the US Armed Forces, General Mark Milli.


Speaking at a press conference in the Pentagon, the general said that all crews of ships and submarines will be sent to 14-day quarantine, special attention will be paid to crews of ships included in the "nuclear triad." In addition to quarantine, mandatory tests for coronavirus will be carried out. The decision to introduce mandatory quarantine and tests was made after the outbreak of the coronavirus on board the nuclear carrier "Theodore Roosevelt".

All ship crews will be isolated for 14 days, with particular emphasis on nuclear strategic submarines and the submarine fleet, especially the nuclear triad. All of these crews are tested before departure, as tests (for coronavirus) become available.

- said Millie.

According to him, mandatory quarantine and testing will also be carried out in relation to other components of the US "nuclear triad" - the crews of strategic aircraft aviation and calculations of intercontinental ballistic missiles.

We are doing the same with the other most important components of the nuclear triad - intercontinental ballistic missiles, strategic aviation ... some quick deployment forces. (...) in order to ensure that we have (...) a readiness for rapid deployment if necessary in any particular emergency


Recall that earlier the US Navy decided to leave on duty only two aircraft carriers - “Theodore Roosevelt” and “Harry Truman”.

    Is this alluding to the fact that at this time it’s just the time to launch our warheads?

    Almost "for fifteen days" ...
    You can’t run-quarantine. If self-isolation (at your own expense) then another thing.

    "According to him, compulsory quarantine and tests will also be carried out with respect to other components of the US nuclear triad - the crews of strategic aviation aircraft and the crews of intercontinental ballistic missiles."

    And will such events be held in our Ministry of Defense? The situation shows that this is necessary in order to avoid subsequent force majeure.

    The nuclear personnel, in all countries possessing these weapons, had to be transferred to the barracks position, isolated from the outside world, when they were first infected in the country. All the same, nuclear charges are not cartridges and bayonets.

      What, what, and the personnel of nuclear forces, in all countries possessing these weapons, had to be transferred to the barracks position, isolated from the outside world
      For example, at the NPPs, all VIUBs and NSSs were settled in a dispensary so that they would not walk around the city, they would carry them separately from shift to shift.

    The US Army lost to the coronavirus.
    No. Coronavirus defeated the US Army, despite nuclear weapons and state-of-the-art weapons.

    Trump recently boasted that they had a high percentage of morbidity from mass coronavirus testing. If you check the whole army now
    as tests (for coronavirus) become available
    what is the result, I wonder, will be? Will they say out loud? There the French have - they are not weak on "Charles de Gaulle"!

    This was announced by Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the US Armed Forces, General Mark Milli.

    Serious figure! For two weeks, the United States is placing its unshakable "national security" in the womb of its main "enemies." Following this logic, they are not afraid of anyone! This means that the United States has no real enemies. And this means - there are only fictional "enemies" by them, to keep the whole world in fear, driving it into "controlled chaos" and earning trillions on it.
