US nuclear weapons in good hands?
Over many decades we have heard of substance abuse among soldiers in US forces responsible for nuclear weapons. Some similar information actually leaked from Russia in the nineties. Now we are learning of serious problems in the quality of the leaders too. Two of the top generals in the nuclear forces and the security chief at the Montana base have been asked to leave.
It should be noted that this time, as on previous occasions, the official response is that at all times there was an around-the-clock, functioning nuclear deterrence. Always ready to fire, that means, but we are concerned about the inverse, not to fire.
Does General Kowalski trust the nuclear war plans written by Vice Admiral Tim Giardina?
