When Donald Trump became President, he made a brilliant decision. He put former Marine Mad Dog Mattis in charge of our military. The decisive, effective warrior has transformed Obama’s wimpy Armed Forces into a well-oiled machine.
Big things have happened since Mattis became Secretary of Defense. We’ve hit ISIS hard. The terror network has been driven from Iraq and Syria. Impressive military gains have been achieved against our enemies. And we’re just getting started.
Much turmoil is going on in the Middle East. That is largely thanks to Russia, who is determined to work with Iran in Syria. Recent conflicts have proven they won’t leave quietly.
But perhaps Putin will think twice about engaging forces in Syria, now that we have this bad boy in the sky.
From Fox News:
The Air Force is integrating the B61 Mod 12 nuclear weapon into the F-35 this year as part of a long-range plan to deploy a nuclear-armed, dual-capable F-35 able to give commanders a wider envelope of precision nuclear attack options.
The latest version of the B61 thermonuclear gravity bomb, which has origins as far back as the 1960s, is engineered as a low-to-medium yield strategic and tactical nuclear weapon, according to nuclearweaponsarchive.org, which also states the weapon has a “two-stage” radiation implosion design.
The most current Mod 12 version has demonstrated a bunker-buster earth-penetrating capability, according to the Federation of American Scientists (FAS).
As part of this equation, an F-35 might also be able to respond much more quickly, with low-yield nuclear weapons in the event that new intelligence information locating a new target emerges. Lower-yield nuclear weapons, should they be integrated onto the F-35, could enable highly destructive, yet more surgical, nuclear attacks to eliminate targets without necessarily impacting much larger swaths of territory.
Stealth fighters. Equipped with strategic nukes. These weapons are specifically designed to be “bunker bombers,” meaning they can take out forces in entrenched positions.
F-35’s are far more maneuverable than traditional bombers. And they’re scary fast. A small group of these planes can fly, at low altitude, and take out an installation in seconds. Forget about Iran; the Russia motherland is in trouble.
In today’s world, big deadly campaigns are thing of the past. Our military is dedicated to using the most-advanced tools to take out our enemies. The better the tech, the fewer causalities and greater the results. These new modified planes are sure to get the job done.
If I were Putin, I’d calm the heck down and get out of Syria.
