U.S. may soon begin nuclear tests if Trump gives the go-ahead

111

The Pentagon believes that within a few months the United States may begin nuclear testing. And preparations for them will begin as soon as the country's president gives the relevant order.


Mitchell announced this and during a speech at the institute yesterday. about. United States Under Secretary of Defense Nuclear Affairs Drew Walter.

The official believes that preparation will not take much time:

I think this can happen fast enough.

Walter explained that although it would be possible to prepare and carry out the first nuclear explosion within a few months, such tests would provide the most minimal data. To get a sufficient amount of information, you need a whole program that will take several years. And to resume such a nuclear program, which was frozen back in 1992, only the order of Donald Trump is missing.

Earlier in the American newspaper Washington Post, information appeared from senior officials from the US administration that a meeting was held on May 15 to discuss the possibility of the United States restarting nuclear tests. The reason for such a discussion was the data on the allegedly conducted tests of low power nuclear charges by Russia and China.

      Not Israel, not Pakistan, much less the DPRK did not sign the non-proliferation treaty, and even less so the CTBT. And Germany, Japan, South Korea, Iran, Saudi (Pakistani charges), Turkey and theoretically Algeria with Egypt can want to make and test for a vaping during the year.

Only when the Stalin Strait is formed on the site of the United States, humanity will breathe calmly and begin to live quietly, trade and build. At the site of this building, in the photograph for the article, a large nuclear funnel arising from their tests would not have looked bad.

            There were. Moreover, the independence of the British colonies in America was also obtained thanks to the position of Russia, when it refused to send its expeditionary force to Great Britain. However, the mattresses tightly forgot that period and even that when they elected their first president, Crimea was already Russian. And in general, it was not Russia that embarked on a path of enmity with the United States, namely, the United States embarked on a path of enmity with Russia.

        The explosions are underground. The depth of the mines is large. No dust emission is foreseen ... Groundwater in the basalt massif? Not an indisputable statement. Therefore, I repeat.

          These are slightly different types of nuclear explosions! Since you can explode at a depth of a dozen meters, or you can steam hundreds or more - the effect will be different ...

    A couple of questions immediately arise, what will be tested - existing or newly wound by centrifuges? And the second question, it seems to me that part of the nuclear technology was lost by the Americans a long time ago after the death of the Cold War cadaver, where mountains of conventional and unconventional weapons of mass destruction were accumulated. Keeping and maintaining all these enrichment plants for 30 years in a relatively peaceful era is still costly, especially since it was possible to get it from Russia through "mountains-chernomyrdin" deals.

      How is this lost? Did the archives suddenly evaporate? In the 40s, it means they could work it out, with a pencil and a slide rule in their hands, but now they have become dumb and forgot everything? Do not entertain your hopes ... This is ridiculous and you have to pay dearly for frivolity

          And what is wrong with the lunar program or with the engines? Everything is there and everything works, they don’t fly not because they forgot it, and because it’s dangerous, it rolled several times, and then one shuttle fell off, the other, they were initially dangerous, but so far everything was lucky. Do you prefer to fly on an airplane that flies, which is your own, but sometimes it falls, or buy from a neighbor the one that never falls while you finish your file?

            With the engine for the lunar program, this is not so.
            It has a large combustion chamber, in which it is impossible to maintain stable combustion. They did not know this before, after the flight the Americans decided that they had found an option. But the laws of physics cannot be deceived. Therefore, the United States says that the drawings are lost, that the technology is expensive to restore, but in fact the engine they claimed to fly to the Moon violates the laws of physics, and therefore cannot exist.

      The United States has no centrifuges and never had. They used a miserable gas diffusion method, which is 4-10 times less effective than centrifuges, but this plant was closed ... just because of dumping of our uranium under the Gor-Chernomyrdin program (the funny thing is that when we diluted under this program HEU and sent LEU for a penny to the USA, centrifuges on Canadian ore continued to spin and our supply of HEU did not decrease). There are centrifuges in the USA, but this is YURENKO’s private European plant, they don’t make HEU .....

    And what earlier did this interfere with? The United States has not yet ratified the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty ...
    “The responsibility for the fact that this document has not yet entered into force lies with those eight states from the list of 44 that have not yet ratified this document. In this context, we call on the United States of America to change the decision set out in the nuclear doctrine of this country not work towards ratification of the CTBT, "he said at the Nonproliferation Conference.

    Quote: Tatiana
    Earlier in the American newspaper The Washington Post, information came from senior officials from the US administration that a meeting was held on May 15 to discuss the possibility of the United States restarting nuclear tests. The reason for this discussion was the data on allegedly conducted by Russia and China tests of low-power nuclear charges.

    And this is what supposedly in the US State Department "The reason for such a discussion was the DATA about the TESTS allegedly carried out by Russia and China low-power nuclear charges " - How shoud I understand this?

    The fact is, Tatyana, that after the announcement of a moratorium on nuclear weapons tests, Russia, China and the United States carried out the so-called hydro nuclear or subcritical testing of devices. In fact, these tests cannot even be called tests of extremely low power.
    But the United States, as always, wants to be holier than the Pope. It’s somehow not comme il faut to just get out of the moratorium, but to get out, claiming that others are breaking is a completely different matter
    The hardware back in the late 80s and early 90s was so sensitive that it was able to detect an experimental nuclear explosion in Kazakhstan from the United States. Moreover, the power of EMNIP was about 100 tons of solid fuel. And low-power charges are still units of kilotons.

    Quote: K-612-O
    Not Israel, not Pakistan, much less the DPRK did not sign the non-proliferation treaty, and even less so the CTBT. And Germany, Japan, South Korea, Iran, Saudi (Pakistani charges), Turkey and theoretically Algeria with Egypt can want to make and test for a vaping during the year.

    India, by the way, also did not sign the non-proliferation treaty and the universal test ban. The US withdrawal from these treaties will pave the way for other countries to start developing and testing nuclear weapons. And how many nuclear powers will become in 10-20 years generally unpredictable.,

    Quote: K-612-O
    So they did not sign the CTBT. Officially not, but if they use it. And they tested it perfectly in South Africa.

    These are slightly different types of nuclear explosions! Since you can explode at a depth of a dozen meters, or you can steam hundreds or more - the effect will be different ...
    How, what and where the Americans will blow up - that’s the main question!

    No one will explode at a depth of several tens of meters ... Those who explode are not complete idiots to make sure that all the muck from the same mine crawled out. The release of radioactive dust or gas is an emergency during testing.
    Moreover, no one will explode megaton class charges, this is not relevant now.
    The Americans have two places where they can theoretically explode: Amchitka and Nevada
