Tension As United States Government Raises An Emergency Alarm Of A Possible Nuclear Attack, Releases Powerful Statement

The Pentagon has raised an alarm of a compelling evidence of possible nuclear weapon strike against the United States of America, US.

“There is compelling evidence that at least one of our potential competitors in this space believes they can get away with striking us with a low-yield weapon.

“We cannot allow that perception to persist”, Gen. Paul Selva, the Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said.

Selva stated that the recent Nuclear Posture Review, NPR, ensured the US could match any nuclear threat, including that of a low-yield nuclear weapon.

“The review makes it clear that the United States will respond in kind to any nuclear threat”, Selva said at the Ninth Annual Defense Programs Conference, hosted by McAleese and Associates and Credit Suisse.

The Vice Chairman underscored that the goal of the NPR was to maintain a safe, reliable, dependable, and secure nuclear arsenal.

“We reviewed the world as it is, not the world as we wished it could be”, Selva said.

The NPR projected what capabilities might be useful to supplement the existing delivery systems in the nuclear triad to “raise the bar for all adversaries who might contemplate the use of nuclear weapons against the US or our allies”, he explained.

The new capabilities are the sea-launched cruise missile and a low-yield nuclear weapon that could be delivered from a submarine platform, Selva said.

“Do not mistake the discussion of new capabilities, for growth in the nuclear arsenal.

“And please do not fall into the trap of having the conversation that low-yield lowers the threshold for the use of nuclear weapons”, he said.

Selva pointed out that the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty came into force 48 years ago, but fewer than 10 countries possessed nuclear weapons or the capabilities to field them.

“We have actually created a safer world. That is not to say that we are free of the threat from nuclear weapons”, he said.

The NPR, which was released on Feb. 2, 2018, is nested in the other new National Security Strategies: the National Security Strategy, National Defence Strategy, and a National Military Strategy, Selva explained.

“All of those set a vector for where we want to move the department, and they are all nested in how we built the fiscal year 2019 budget request”  he said.

The nuclear strategy and acquiring the best and most advanced technologies are vital elements, as the US seeks to apply its power and influence around the world, Selva told the Conference audience.

The US must continue to build strong alliances, and another important aspect in National Security, is to maintain the capability and capacity to deploy forces anywhere in the world and project American power where necessary to defend the US interests, he said.

“If there is no other reason to bring new technologies and capabilities into our force today, it is to make sure that no asymmetry from an outside force can prevent us from projecting American force, power, and influence, at the point in place of our choosing”, Selva stated.
