Defense Secretary On U.S. Nuclear Arsenal

Опубликовано 14 сентября 2017, 2:32
Defense Secretary Jim Mattis is currently overseeing a Pentagon review of America’s aging nuclear arsenal. Experts say it could cost a trillion dollars or more to modernize it. Mattis previously questioned whether the three legs of America’s nuclear “triad” of ballistic missile submarines, bombers and land-based missiles should be reduced to a “dyad.” But on Wednesday, Mattis said he believed all three portions of the triad were vital. He told reporters: “I have been persuaded that the triad, in its framework, is the right way to go.” Mattis declined to set a deadline for the review, which is expected to take months to complete.
