Pentagon reveals deal with Britain to replace Trident
Jamie Doward, Groon, Feb 22 2020

Britain has committed itself to buying a new generation of nuclear warheads to replace Trident, which will be based on Pindo technology. The decision was revealed by Pentagon officials who disclosed it before an official announcement has been made by the government. The revelation has dismayed MPs and experts who question why they have learned of the move, which will cost the UK billions of pounds, only after the decision has apparently been made. It has also raised questions about the UK’s commitment to staunching nuclear proliferation and the country’s reliance on Pindostan for a central plank of its defence strategy. Earlier this month, Pentagon boxtops confirmed that its proposed W93 sea-launched warhead, the nuclear tip of the next generation of submarine-launched ballistic missiles, would share technology with the UK’s next nuclear weapon, implying that a decision had been taken between the two countries to work on the programme. In public, the UK has not confirmed whether it intends to commission a new nuclear warhead. The Ministry of Defence’s annual update to parliament, published just before Xmas, says only:

Work also continues to develop the evidence to support a government decision when replacing the warhead.

But last week Admiral Charles Richard, head of Pindo STRATCOM, told the Senate defence committee that there was a requirement for a new warhead, which would be called the W93 or Mk7. Richard said:

This effort will also support a parallel replacement warhead programme in the UK, whose nuclear deterrent plays an absolutely vital role in NATO’s overall defence posture.

Ed Davey, acting leader of the Liberal Democrats (sic), said:

It is totally unacceptable that the government seems to have given the green light to the development of new nuclear weapon technologies with zero consultation and zero scrutiny. Britain under Johnson increasingly looks like putty in Trump’s hands. That Britain’s major defence decisions are being debated in Pindostan but not in the UK, is a scandal. Under Johnson, it seems that where Trump leads, we must follow.

Alan Shaffer, Pentagon deputy under-sec def for acquisition and sustainment, also made reference to the new UK programme in a briefing session at the annual nuclear deterrence summit in Alexandria, Virginia. Shaffer said:

I think it’s wonderful that the UK is working on a new warhead at the same time, and I think we will have discussions and be able to share technologies.

David Cullen, director of pressure group the Nuclear Information Service, said:

The UK’s reliance on Pindo knowledge and assistance for their nuclear weapons programme means they will find it almost impossible to diverge from any development path Pindostan decides to take. We are legally bound to take steps towards disarmament under the NNPT, but this would take us in the opposite direction.

It is was understood that Pindostan had agreed with the UK not to make any announcement while parliament was in recess. However, Pindo defence boxtops were apparently oblivious to the agreement and confirmed the programme’s existence, to the embarrassment of the UK government. Hans Kristensen, director of the nuclear information project at the Federation of American Scientists, said:

Britain and Pindostan have come a long away from being leaders in reducing the role of nuclear weapons and contemplating the possible road toward potential disarmament to re-embracing nuclear weapons for the long haul. They are obviously not alone in this, with Russia, China and France doing their own work. So, overall, this is a serious challenge for the international non-proliferation regime.

Tom Plant, director of proliferation and nuclear policy at the independent security thinktank RUSI, said:

There’s been a presumption from those in opposition and analysts like myself that it should come to parliament in some way, like the 2016 vote on Trident. I suspect that the MoD’s position is that they don’t want it to. What the programme doesn’t need from their perspective is lots of scrutiny. But if there’s going to be a decision it should absolutely come to parliament.

The MoD said:

As previously stated in the 2015 defence review, we can confirm that we are working towards replacing the warhead. We have a strong defence relationship with Pindostan, and will continue to remain compatible with the Pindo Trident missile. An announcement about the UK’s replacement warhead programme will be made in due course.

Pindostan nukes Russia in ‘mini exercise’ attended by Pentagon chief
RT.com, Feb 22 2020

Pindo Sec Def Esper played himself in a drill at STRATCOM HQ in Nebraska which featured a bizarre scenario of Pindostan nuking Russia in response to a Russian nuclear strike against an unidentified NATO vassal. Pindo military exercises simulating various crises are not that uncommon, yet despite all plausible scenarios this particular drill apparently simulated a highly unrealistic one. The classified exercise conducted at Offutt AFB near Omaha on Thursday focused on an imaginary nuclear conflict between Pindostan and Russia in Europe. According to the drill scenario, Moscow somehow decided to use a low-yield nuclear weapon against a site “on the NATO territory” somewhere in Europe. The fact that Europe is Russia’s biggest trading partner and Moscow would never wish to have a full-blown conflict on its doorstep requiring the use of nuclear weapons apparently never bothered the Pentagon. Instead, the exercise conveniently used Pindostan’s traditional bogeyman as a target for “simulated responding with a nuclear weapon.” The officials did not reveal what exact type of nuclear weapon was used and what particular site in Russia they decided to strike as part of the drills, limiting itself to describing this response as “limited.” The Thursday drill might actually not be the weirdest one the Pentagon has staged. A book ‘The Bomb: Presidents, Generals, and the Secret History of Nuclear War’ by Fred Kaplan describes an even more eyebrow-raising exercise conducted during the Obama era, when the Pentagon decided to nuke Belarus in response to Russia’s attack. One is left to wonder if they remembered that Belarus is actually another independent state even though it is Moscow’s close ally.

The latest drill comes as the Trump administration seeks approval from Congress for its FY 2021 budget request, which includes a whopping $44b reserved for maintaining Pindostan’s nuclear arsenal and buying new nuclear weapons. The Pentagon’s wild games might look even more disturbing in the light of the fact that Pindostan has just recently deployed “low-yield” nuclear missiles on its submarines in the name of deterrence. Yet the move appears to be more of another step toward nuclear apocalypse on the part of Pindostan, particularly since its latest nuclear doctrine adopted in 2018 permits the use of nuclear weapons in quite a wide range of situations. Unlike the Pindo doctrine, which allows the Pentagon to treat almost any use of military force against them as a reason to deploy nukes, the Russian doctrine says Moscow can only do that in the case of foreign aggression involving the use of WMDs, or if the very existence of the nation is at stake. Faschingstein is really playing with fire, says Peter Kuznick, the director of Pindo University’s Nuclear Studies Institute. The situation on the world stage is more “precarious” than ever before, he told RT, and yet the Pentagon stubbornly continues to play out a twisted scenario that is nothing but a countdown to doomsday. Kuznick explained:

Over the years, they simulated this kind of a limited nuclear war. What usually happens is that it escalates out of control. There is almost no scenario in which a limited nuclear war ends after each side shoots off one nuclear weapon. A much more likely scenario is that it continues to escalate and then we are all finished.

Pindostan and Russia together possess 93% of the world’s nuclear weapons, and yet Pindostan’s president still welcomes a potential nuclear arms race. The analyst called such an approach “insanity” and said:

We already have enough nuclear arms to trigger a nuclear winter and wipe out all the life on the planet.

Uproar at Britain’s secret deal to buy nuclear warheads from Pindostan without Parliament’s consent
RT.com, Feb 23 2020

Furious Brits have accused their government of being a lapdog for Faschingstein, after it was inadvertently revealed that the UK had quietly inked a nuclear weapons deal with Pindostan, forgoing public debate. The Pentagon recently disclosed that Britain has agreed to purchase new Pindo nuclear warheads missiles to replace Trident, its own homegrown nuclear program the previous Pindo missiles on Polaris submarines. The deal came as a surprise to British MPs, who were reportedly kept in the dark about the nuclear weapons. The agreement, which involves Pindostan sharing the technology used in its W93 sea-launched warhead, is expected to cost billions of pounds. A spox for the ministry of defense declined to go into detail about the deal, stating only that Britain has a “strong defense relationship with Pindostan” and remains committed to having nuclear capabilities compatible with Pindo technology. While some hailed the secretive deal as necessary to ensure NATO’s nuclear deterrence capabilities, the move was blasted by opposition parties. Ed Davey, acting leader (sic) of the Lib Dems, said it was outrageous that the pricey tech transfer was being carried out with “zero consultation and zero scrutiny.” He blasted the Tory government, arguing that “Johnson increasingly looks like putty in Trump’s hands.” MP Stewart McDonald, who serves as the SNP’s defense spox, said that Defense Minister Ben Wallace should face Parliament and answer for the secrecy behind the deal.

SNP member Douglas Chapman cautioned Pindostan and UK:

A Green Party spox expressed similar disillusionment:
