Three agents of the U.S. Air Force belonging to the strategic nuclear missile launching base in North Dakota were reported recently to have fallen asleep, with a secret locking device for pressing the switch for the launch of nuclear missiles left loose.We all know there's no code--one elbow in the wrong place and kablooey!
This indicates the extreme laxity manifested in the U.S. field of managing and handling nukes though it requires a high degree of awareness and sense of responsibility.
Minju Joson today says this in a by-lined commentary.
It goes on:
The U.S. Department of Defense is trying hard to downplay the gravity of the case, claiming that "there was no danger" as the frequently changing launching code had to be inputted but this is no more than a clumsy subterfuge to escape the protest and condemnation of the international community focused on the U.S.
The U.S. handled nukes like toys though they do not allow anyone to get slackened even a bit and make any slightest mistake in their management and handling.Not if Super Atom Kim can help it!
This fact goes to prove that the U.S. is so brazen-faced as to utterly disregard the human life and destiny.
What matters is that the U.S. made such serious "mistakes" not once or twice, the commentary observes, citing facts to prove mankind has been exposed to a U.S. constant nuclear threat ever since the middle of the 20th century.
The U.S., the worst country threatening other countries with nukes in the world, and nuclear criminal, is frequently raising a hue and cry over someone's nuclear threat, the commentary notes, adding that its ulterior intention is to disable defence capabilities of independent and sovereign countries and achieve its hegemonic goal with ease.
