The gloves are off! We’re in a world where the esteemed Tucker Carlson, the very embodiment of audacious candor, catapults the once hushed-up subject of nuclear weaponry into our drawing rooms and dinner discussions. This blunt revelation pulls back the curtain on the highest risk of nuclear war since the Cold War era. A chilling truth that leaves us, the global citizens, with sleepless nights and pressing questions.
What becomes of humanity if we stumble into the abyss of nuclear winter?
Will our brave men and women in uniform be our shield?
Are we prepared to deal with the aftermath of a nuclear onslaught?
The more we delve into the obscure depths of this scenario, the more we are plagued by the unknown.
Eight countries around the globe have managed to infiltrate the exclusive “nuclear club“, a terrifying fraternity that wields the power of over 13,000 nuclear warheads according to the SIPRI. Yes, you’ve read that right! The United States, Russia, the United Kingdom, France, China, India, Pakistan, and North Korea. Unofficially, Israel also flexes its clandestine nuclear muscle.
A closer inspection brings to light the two titans in this deadly game – the United States and Russia. Why them, you may wonder? They possess what’s known as the nuclear triad: a deadly trifecta of land, sea, and air-based nukes. Tucker Carlson leaves no stone unturned as he narrates the eerie tale of the U.S. nuclear arsenal.
To understand the magnitude of the potential destruction, consider this: The land component, the LGM-30 Minuteman III, possesses a destructive force 40 times greater than the catastrophic Hiroshima blast. These are no ordinary missiles.
Hidden in underground silos, impervious to a nearby nuclear blast, and spread across several states in the Midwest, they are the silent guardians, ever-ready to launch at a moment’s notice.
But it doesn’t end there!
If these fortresses fall, the next line of defense kicks into gear. Carlson unveils the second and third components of the triad: nuclear bombs and air-launched missiles carried by strategic bombers, and over 70% of U.S. nuclear warheads on Ohio-class nuclear submarines. Their primary strength lies in their evasiveness, making them a deadly foe in any hypothetical nuclear war.
The mere thought of a nuclear attack sends shivers down the spine.
But if the unthinkable were to happen, would there be a fail-safe?
The answer lies in the single integrated operational plan.
The primary goal?
Secure the safety of the President and the key to U.S. defense.
If the President isn’t within the confines of the command posts, the nuclear portfolio devices establish a vital link with the Pentagon.
In the face of an apocalypse, the person steering the ship is crucial. But what if the President doesn’t survive the initial assault? The U.S. Constitution provides a somber roadmap. A chain of successors stand ready, beginning with the Vice President, followed by the Speaker of the House of Representatives, the President of the Senate, and the Secretary of State.
As we tread further into this ominous narrative, a question looms: where could Russia strike?
As Carlson points out, the potential targets could be both the United States and one of the European NATO countries.
In an era where our existence is shrouded by the specter of nuclear war, Carlson’s stark revelation thrusts us into a chilling reality check.
Perhaps it’s time we confront this dreadful truth head-on, before it’s too late.
After all, the fallout from ignorance could be far more devastating than the fallout from a nuclear blast.
