Clinton Issues New Guidelines on U.S. Nuclear Weapons Doctrine

THE CLINTON a dministration quietly made a significant change in U.S. strategic nuclear doctrine in November by formally abandoning guidelines issued by the Reagan administration in 1981 that the United States must be prepared to fight and win a protracted nuclear war. The new presidential decision directive (PDD), details of which were first reported in The Washington Post on December 7, operates from the premise that the primary role of nuclear weapons in the post-Cold War era is deterrence. In a December 23 interview, Robert Bell, senior director for defense policy and arms control at the National Security Council, provided additional information about the PDD and clarified some misperceptions in the press with respect to the Clinton administration's policy on "launch on warning" and the use of nuclear weapons against a chemical or biological weapons attack.

New Guidelines

Due to its highly classified nature, many specific details about the PDD have not been made public. Nevertheless, Bell confirmed that "We have made an important change in terms of strategic nuclear doctrine in reorienting our presidential guidance away from any sense that you could fight and win a protracted nuclear war to a strategic posture that focuses on deterrence."

The administration made the decision to rewrite the old nuclear guidelines early in 1997. At that time, General John Shalikashvili, then-chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff ...

Launch on Warning

Bell said the press had incorrectly indicated that the PDD "still allows" the United States to launch nuclear weapons upon receiving warning of an attack. Bell emphasized that "there is no change in this PDD with respect to U.S. policy on launch on warning and that policy is that we do not, not rely on it." In fact, Bell said "in this PDD we direct our military forces to continue to posture themselves in such a way as to not rely on launch on warning—to be able to absorb a nuclear strike and still have enough force surviving to constitute credible deterrence."

Bell pointed out that while the United States has always had the "technical capability" to implement a policy of launch on warning, it has chosen not to do so. "Our policy is to confirm that we are under nuclear attack with actual detonations before retaliating," he said.

Joel Skousen on The Power Hour 9-11-17 (Hr 2) talks about the Clinton change (time 48:00)

(See top pg 2 & 4) Joel Skousen: “The globalists are setting us up for failure in World War 3”

“The globalists are working overtime and theyʼre very powerful; theyʼre not about to let the system fall without a fight and without a great deal of deception. ”

“People must be aware of the plan [for World War 3]. They must recognise it when it happens: that our globalist leaders are betraying us, that it isnʼt an accident that a first strike [will be] allowed to fall on US and British nuclear forces. It is a planned betrayal of national sovereignty. ”

PDD 60 also removed the alternate launch codes so that submarine commanders cannot launch without direction from the White House. They do not, any longer, have alternate launch codes in case communications are cut off. ”
Don't believe me. Look it up yourself!
