Escalation Dominance

 

On March 1, Russian dictator Vladimir Putin delivered a speech that effectively declared Russia has overwhelming nuclear superiority and war-winning capability against the United States, NATO, and the entire world.

While President Obama neglected modernizing the U.S. nuclear deterrent, questing for a “world without nuclear weapons” – Russia achieved what the USSR never could against any U.S. president during the Cold War, the holy grail of nuclear superiority, what strategists call “escalation dominance.” Continue reading

A New Nuclear Strategy: Painting A Nuclear Bullseye on America

The only people within a country who would want to disarm that same country, making it vulnerable to enemies who routinely break treaties to gain first-strike capability, are the same people who want to destroy their own country. There is no excuse, ignorance or naïveté in such high levels as this. The only mistake is letting these people be in positions of power to destroy a nation from within.

Why would the United States, without our Minuteman missile force, make it easy, in fact tempting, for an adversary such as Russia, to take out the entire U.S. strategic nuclear forces in one or a series of very limited even surreptitious first strikes?  Continue reading

Chinese DF-41 missile can penetrate US air defense: German expert

Intercepting the DF-41 in the air is as challenging as trying to shoot a rifle bullet into another, Karl Josef Dahlem, chief advisor of air defense with the European guided weapons manufacturer MBDA, told Die Welt during an interview. Early detection by reconnaissance and radar facilities is a must for the US to intercept intercontinental missiles, Dahlem said. Continue reading
