General Mattis Horrified to Learn US Nuclear System Still Uses Floppy Disks (Video)

(Before It's News)

The fact that all the major world powers are nuclear-armed has ushered in the age of proxy wars. Case in point: Syria. And while even a fraction of any nation’s nuclear arsenal could leave the large swathes of the planet uninhabitable and set civilization back by centuries, President Trump still wants to make sure that the United States’ nuclear capability remains the best in the world. Secretary of Defense ‘Mad Dog’ Mattis has initiated a review of our country’s nuclear weapons capability, and it seems he isn’t too pleased with what it has found.

In the following video, Right Wing News takes a look at some of the facts about the state of our nuclear weapon arsenal that the review has dredged up. From command systems running on 8-inch floppy disks and ICBM silos that have fallen into disuse and disrepair, it looks like Mattis is going to go about fixing these issues immediately. But if a scenario ever arises where our nuclear arsenal needs to be launched, does it really matter anyway?

US Secretary of Defense James Mattis has ordered the military to immediately review the US’s overall nuclear weapons policy document after learning that weapons systems in the nuclear arsenal are over six decades old and some still run on floppy disk.

Before President Trump took office, he tweeted that the US “must greatly strengthen and expand its nuclear capability until such times as the world comes to its senses regarding nukes.”

After taking office Defense Secretary James Mattis was disgusted to learn that decades of deferring modernization meant that some long-range bombers are more than 60 years old, certain control and command systems still run on eight-inch floppy disks and some intercontinental ballistic missile silos have fallen into disuse and disrepair.

Today, Secretary Mattis directed the commencement of the review, [Nuclear Posture Review], which will be led by the deputy secretary of defense and the vice chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, and include interagency partners,” Pentagon spokesperson Dana White said in a statement Monday.

The process will culminate in a final report to the president by the end of the year.

The Pentagon is preparing to spend billions of dollars over the next 15 years to modernize and purchase the new B-21 bomber, an updated fleet of nuclear submarines, and new intercontinental ballistic missiles, as well as new command and control capabilities, according to Defense News.

According to a report by the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO), the Pentagon is under orders to urgently modernize its floppy systems – which currently coordinate intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs), nuclear bombers and tanker support aircraft – by the end of 2017.

    I find this article hard to believe but if true it is not very intelligent to let the outside world no . :cool:

    The area’s of upgrades and needed modernization within the military are well documented. The higher ups need only request the summary reviews on file. I recall Mattis speaking about the needed upgrades and advanced technology replacements at some point recently. So I doubt he was surprised by it. What’s more likely was that he was disgusted by it.
