'Nuclear forces are READY' Biden risks huge war escalation as US carries out missile test


(Utilizing nuclear reactions to generate energy is known as nuclear power. Nuclear fission, nuclear decay, and nuclear fusion processes can all provide nuclear energy. Currently, nuclear power plants use the nuclear fission of uranium and plutonium to generate the great majority of the world's electricity from nuclear sources.

The Biden administration has acknowledged that the United States has successfully conducted missile tests that demonstrate the "readiness of U.S. nuclear weapons.")

The US military acknowledged conducting frequent testing with Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missiles that were unarmed (ICBMs).

The US Defense Department stated that the military's decision to postpone the ICBM tests on two occasions this year "exemplified how a responsible nuclear power should act."


A second postponement was announced after the increase of tensions around Taiwan. The delay was announced in the aftermath of Russia's invasion of Ukraine.
