Read up. I happened to be posting about this when Donkeyman wrote. The other possibility is that she really could be that ignorant. If she is that uniformed about one of the gravest procedures that could fall into her hands, then she has no place holding office.

That's it. It doesn't mention, however, that the president can be deemed unfit at any step during this process, and that the vice-president would be the next in line.

Not fast if there is any disagreement in the sequence.

Hi

The Pentagon must comply with the Presidents Order.

The system is set up to stop a Foreign Agent interfering in the decision.

It has not changed since the Cold War when this was a major worry.

Re: Nuke codes

Could be done and fast thanks to technology.

The only time it would have to be done fast, would be if it was retaliatory. One would hope that the perfect storm of a nuclear attack and an insane President would not overlap.

Then there is always mutiny.

Hi

Mutiny will not happen.

The scenario is set up to prohibit it.

The mutineer would be shot immediately and next in line takes their place.

\the command and control systems are set up to be excluded from all external media at all, this is to stop false news or cyber attacks.

There are more levels of redundancy built in now, with cyber attacks and hypersonic missiles.

Deterrence is now a matter of seconds.

I cannot comment on the exact here and now, been out of it for a long, long time.

The principles are the same.

Re: Nuke codes

Irrespective of the procedure, the only real question is whether Trump should be included anywhere within the process. No matter how you look at it, there does seem to be some very real doubt as to his state of mind and his ability to process a rational decision. That would surely be enough to remove him from any involvement.

I agree, and have said as much several times.

He will be training his son to take over next.

Another thing came to mind today as well - where has his wife disappeared to lately? Haven't seen her for for some time.
