“OMGWTFBBQ Trump will push the red button”

Will someone…ANYONE..I dont care who….explain to these bedwetting, whining, puerile and utterly LUNATIC Lefties that there IS no “big red button” and reassure these Safe Space™ addicted, halfwitted, droolingly braindead imbeciles that no US President anywhere can EVER unilaterally launch a nuclear attack?

I mean really, do NONE of them ever bother to actually LEARN how this is flatly and totally IMPOSSIBLE?

I’m a dumb Aussie, a non American, an “outsider”, a citizen of one of the multitude of nations that isnt America, and even I know more on how this works than they do??? Every time I see this utter bullshit I want to slam my head into the desk until the fucking thing splinters.

Please…God..Santa Claus….Rudolph….ANYONE….tell me that these dickheads cannot be this STUPID?

Yeah I guess…what scares the hell out of me is that I.,..a FOREIGNER,,know more of how your systems work than a US citizen does??? :em08:

Yeah I guess…what scares the hell out of me is that I.,..a FOREIGNER,,know more of how your systems work than a US citizen does??? I’m gonna hazard a guess that that’s because you actually pay attention, unlike a lot of our citizens, who really only pay attention to or think about politics and issues every eight or four years when… Read more »

You do realize that the president has sole discretion on whether to launch?

and

They are under his sole purview and noone can override that decision.

This fuckwit has zero clue. :em08:

This fuckwit has zero clue.

I blame our woefully deficient, Progtard dominated education system.

Alternately, you might consider that: he has a clue, but he’s advancing a Narrative.

These days, either could be true, and in some cases, the Narrative answer has the higher probability.

(Not surprising: being a poster here at the Rott, it’d be odd if you weren’t immersed in that just via osmosis, as Misha is pretty knowledgeable and writes about and links to those things a LOT.) Heh Misha got to know me via other means, and I was already educated. I actually have startled a lot of people by what… Read more »

Yes, they can, therefore I recommend that you give them the Tom Clancy novel which details how the president initiates a first strike and what happens when the order is declared invalid under the two man rule.

Heh Misha got to now me via other means, and I was already educated. I actually have startled a lot of people by what I’ve learned, goes back to BTR and other talk radio stuff. Coolness. 🙂 I’m an exception to the “If you’re not a Liberal at twenty you have no heart; and if you’re not Conservative at forty… Read more »

The truth is that a lot of international news covers American national news better and with less bias than the American news does. American news is all about the message, all about the agenda. It’s stopped reporting news except as it serves their purposes.

So, not knowing anything about this point, I went and did some digging. Unfortunately, all I could find on a cursory search was the ever-reliable Wikipedia. 😛 Here’s what Wikipedia said: The National Command Authority comprising the president and Secretary of Defense must jointly authenticate the order to use nuclear weapons to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.… Read more »

It is argued by Franklin Miller that the President has almost single authority to initiate a nuclear attack since the Secretary of Defense is required to verify the order, but cannot legally veto it. The SecDef can veto simply by not authenticating the order. Even then the actual launch requires the consent of two senior officers for each launch site,… Read more »

VonZorch Imperial Researcher says: Even then the actual launch requires the consent of two senior officers for each launch site, ie the CO and XO of a ballistic missile sub. Two officers must turn keys at separate consoles deliberately spaced so that it’s impossible for one person to turn both keys. It’s even more restrictive than that. For missile silos,… Read more »

Therefore, there are many people involved, and all must agree for the launch to happen. Thank you, that clarifies a good deal.

And remember, LC Brendan, ignorance and stupidity are two very different things.

LCBrendan @ #:

That requires realizing that one needs to look for it. I think you’re being a little arrogant and a lot unfair.

But then, everyone has their issues. 🙂

Speaking of issues … get this: Obama and certain members of the media are convinced that the media was biased against Hillary. :em05:

Ignorance can be fixed, stupidity is for life. There is of course willful ignorance, but I class that as a type of stupidity.
