Tag: US Nuclear Posture Review
The New York Times has published an anonymously sourced report titled “U.S. Escalates Online Attacks on Russia’s Power Grid” about the “placement of potentially crippling malware inside the Russian system at a depth and with an aggressiveness that had never been tried before” which could potentially “plunge Russia into darkness or cripple its military,” with one anonymous official reporting that “We are doing things at a scale that we never contemplated a few years ago.”
Nuclear safety in the US is a critical issue that deserves far more public attention.
If in Helsinki, Trump and Putin could agree only to have the SVC conduct special inspections to resolve these issues, it would represent no small achievement. It would also pave the way for more meaningful arms reductions to come.
Trump is now pushing to the limit, presumably in the confident expectation that as the US President, he can safely grab any territory and steal any oil or other natural resource that he wishes.
