Let’s hope he has a gradual hand.
Crushing Power Drinks
Admiral Charles “Chas” Richard, eleventh commander of the USA Strategic Command (STRATCOM) — the navy’s centralized command answerable for the nation’s nuclear weapons — revealed that he crushed “a few Monster [energy drinks] this morning” at a briefing, as quoted by Breaking Defense editor-in-chief Aaron Mehta.
It’s a moderately odd admission given the truth that Richard has his metaphorical finger on the nuclear set off that would unleash World Battle III. Let’s simply hope all these vitality drinks don’t make him too jittery!
Nonetheless, it’s sufficient to make us antsy.
Richard seems like a little bit of an oddball. He likes to maintain a poster of a number of of the world’s dictators on a wall of his workplace, according to Mehta.
“I hold footage of Xi, Putin, Kim and the Ayotollah on my wall, beneath the phrases ‘Not Right now,’” he mentioned throughout an October convention, as Task and Purpose reported on the time.
STRATCOM was fashioned on the finish of the Chilly Battle to create a unified command in control of the nation’s arsenal of nuclear weapons. Its primary mission is to discourage an assault, and, if want be, counter with nuclear weapons.
We’d hyperlink to the command’s official webpage, nevertheless it seems to be down on the time of writing.
Let’s hope Richard is ready to hold a gradual hand in spite of everything these vitality drinks. No person desires to be on the threat of a nuclear meltdown due to a cheesy vitality drink model.
