  1. Minuteman-3s (with MX´ warheads) and Trident-2 D5s linked to NAVSTAR gives a CEP of 30-40 metres, enough to destroy any hard target, missile silos, etc. According to former Trident missile engineer Bob US Navy can track and destroy all enemy submarines. The Pentagon´s disarming and unanswerable first-strike capability won´t be complete without the missiles in Poland. Even if it´s only for blackmail, the Russians may have no choice but implementing Launch On Warning. End of story. I´d like to recommend The Aftermath published by SIPRI. And all because of the Pentagon. Resign as Bob Aldridge did. Resign ! A First-Strike Capability is SUICIDAL.
