Media: US soldiers almost do not protect ballistic missiles

US soldiers carrying watches in underground bunkers, where they control the intercontinental ballistic missiles with nuclear warheads, allow violations that can lead to the seizure of objects by attackers, reports AP.


According to agency sources in the US Air Force, one of the most serious violations is that officers often leave special doors open, which serve not only to protect against possible intrusion by intruders, but also are able to protect those who are there during a nuclear strike, ITAR-TASS reports.

As noted by the AP, only in the current year there were two cases in which one of the officers was asleep and the door was not closed. Similar incidents occurred, in particular, at the Malstrom (Montana) and Minot (North Dakota) Air Force bases. Four people were subject to disciplinary action.

“Such violations may allow outsiders to gain access to the objects with which the missiles are launched, as well as to top-secret codes,” said former military Bruce Blair, who worked in the past at a similar facility. - So the strategic arsenal of nuclear weapons The United States can be neutralized for a long time until the Pentagon releases new codes. ”

        Absolutely snickering citizens f * ndos.

        The more or less realistic plans for the USSR invasion of the United States and vice versa did not begin at all with the raising of air armada or a simultaneous volley of tens of thousands of missiles, but with the secret infiltration of special forces across borders by hook or by crook.
        And then - a simultaneous blow by these groups on:
        1) Satellite communication nodes
        2) Special nodes. communications (wires between radars, the White House, the Pentagon and rocket mines)
        3) And only then at headquarters, airfields, etc.

          I'm even afraid to imagine what's going on with us belay Complete poh..zm commanders and their subordinates, you live in another country, or didn’t serve in the army!?!? They’ll kill conscripts there, or somewhere else, they’ll die in platoons at the training grounds because of the gouging and irresponsibility of the commanders. And you laugh at the Americans. As they say in our eyes we don’t notice the logs.
          You can minus dear ...

      Razeb .. geldydstvo

      "bearded" anek, in the light of such events, takes on a different meaning:

      There are two cruisers: American and Russian. In Russian, panic, turmoil, the captain runs, shouts: Who threw the felt boots on the remote? Who threw the boots on the remote?
      The Americans looked at the mess and said: We do not have this in America! English: Yes, no more is your America. Who threw the boots on the remote?

      Yes, they are purely relaxed.
      With such intelligence, full control over its citizens by the NSA, such an anachronism as the protection of mines (which they have generally outdated) makes no sense to deal with it.
      They adopted a different concept of war, the so-called. "disarming preemptive strike".
      They do not intend to use nuclear weapons at all.
      Therefore, Obama offers us to reduce nuclear weapons.
      But they actually have something to oppose nuclear weapons, but we do not have, therefore, it makes no sense for us to reduce nuclear weapons, but on the contrary, it is better to restore non-segregated "rocket" trains as soon as possible.

      Their volume is being banged with nuclear weapons regularly and this is only from open sources, which has become public.
      Presumably, during the years of the Cold War, about 50 nuclear warheads were lost, and far from all of them remained in uninhabited areas.

      The US Department of Defense first published a list of nuclear accidents as early as 1968 year, in which 13 mentioned serious nuclear weapons accidents between 1950 and 1968 for years. The updated list was released in the 1980 year, in which there was already an 32 case. At the same time, the same documents were issued by the Navy in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act, which listed the 381 US nuclear incident between the 1965 and 1977 years.

      In January 1966, over the Spanish village of Palomares, while refueling in the air, at an altitude of 9000 meters, an American B-52 bomber and a KC-135 tanker collided. The planes instantly turned into one giant flaming ball, and meanwhile, there were four hydrogen bombs aboard the B-52. For some reason, one of them, safe and sound, fell in a field near the village. Non-nuclear fuses detonated two more, and fragments of the bomb, along with plutonium dust, arranged a small radioactive rain at the crash site. The fourth one fell off the coast, but where exactly? It is worth noting that the power of this lost bomb is 1000 times higher than the power of the one that leveled Hiroshima to the ground.

      It is said that after this incident, the Palomares neighborhood for a long time resembled the scenery for the film about the Apocalypse. The place where the bombs fell was calculated using Geiger counters; American warships surrounded the coastline.

    All this fits into the plans of Kabbalists on the theme of the demolition of the United States to the rank of a regional country under 44 presidents. The main thing is that our powerful people should not give in, but have their own Head on their shoulders.

    for the current year there were two cases


    As I understand it, on the basis of these TWO cases, it was concluded that

    US soldiers hardly guard ballistic missiles

    Guarding the perimeter and ground objects is one thing, carrying a database on the launch equipment somewhere in a bunker under tens of meters of rock is another. Nobody thinks that Russian and American rocket launchers all the time watch on the nuclear button without blinking awaiting orders to launch a nuclear strike?

    Well, the Yankees fell asleep in a comfortable chair (there are even belts to fasten laughing ) having eaten donuts, and the hermetic door was propped up by the eggplant from the cola so that fresh air would go. This surfaced during the inspection, the base commander loved his superiors, about this the relevant news was a month earlier. And he punished the chain of guilty among his subordinates.

    With all this, the alarm and security do not disappear, and I don’t think that anyone can walk in one piece to the entrance to the strategic nuclear forces in the USA, in Russia what

    Well, the headlines of the articles as in that joke: "The scientist raped the journalist!" belay

    Is it really, with the modern development of automatic controls, the share of the human factor is still high? The Americans have always had gullibility ... Probably, in our understanding, gullibility, we even survived the war, we understand what this threatens ... They are guided by "common" sense ... In general, have there ever been any serious attacks on strategic objects in US history ? Or is it just Hollywood scripts?

    In general, the issue of protecting the starting positions of ICBMs has always been solved in a very original way. I remember a report from the shaggy 80s, when a bunch of "peacekeepers", having fitted a compressor on a trailer (!) And breaking one fence from a "chain-link" without any hint of an electrified fence (!!), began with bumpers (!! !) to gouge the head of the mine ... As I understand it, some mobile security detachment had screwed them up rather quickly, but they did not protest too much - they still managed to damage some input devices.
    I was surprised then that in everyday peaceful life at the starting positions there is no constant guard.

    The title of the article is touching. Another cheap, toilet fake, domestic media. "Almost not guarded", yes, yes, they are a little guarded, by one whole hundred and forty hundredths of a percent, such a headline could only come up with a magazine. , infotainment sharashka. By the way, in the Western press, nislova. Americans reading our resources are probably beginning to wonder what kind of second-class country they live in.
