A mysterious handbag, from opening to launching a nuclear bomb in only 5 minutes, is enough to destroy the lives of billions of people.
This plain-looking bag, but actually related to the safety of the earth, always has some expressions The alert, quick-moving soldier carried it. They wore uniforms, put the chain of the bag on their wrists, and used the”preliminary power” to protect the bag, following the President of the United States like a shadow.
It’s just that the “cow” carrying people also have flesh and blood.
Recently, I have been following closelyTrump’s”bag man”——Member of the White House Military Office, US Coast Guard Major Mike Karon was diagnosed with new coronary pneumonia. She had to take off her uniform, put down her bag, and entered the hospital for treatment.
McCarron’s diagnosis has caused the public to turn their attention to the president’s”bag man” A special occupation. What is the existence of those silent people who always stand behind the president and stay at every step? What is the story between them and the black package in their hands?
Who is the”bag man”?
As the president’s personal entourage, the 35-year-old Mai Caron’s most important task is to hold the President’s emergency handbag, commonly known as”nuclear football.”
Generally speaking, the security team of”Nuclear Football” consists of 5 people, each from The five branches of the U.S. Army:Navy, Land and Air Force, as well as Coast Guard and Marine Corps.
These carefully selected candidates from the U.S. armed forces must accept the strictest Background checks, psychological tests will be conducted every week after taking office to ensure that there is no possibility of mental disorders. In addition, they have all undergone rigorous training and are capable of assisting the president in launching a nuclear strike within a few minutes.
Whether eating or sleeping, the”carrying person” must guard the”nuclear” 24/7 Football” is inseparable from it. Even if the president is running in the White House, they have to carry a”bag” and run after him. The shift time between the five”bag-carryers” is the highest military secret of the US Department of Defense.
Along with 4 other active military servicemen, McCarron, who serves as a”bag man”, has a healthy body, plump cheeks and total hair It is combed behind the ear, looking solid and capable. She is a native of Massachusetts and graduated from Coast Guard Academy in 2007.
According to the profile on the official website of his alma mater, McCarron worked in Mississippi and the coast of California The guard patrolled the speedboat as an executive officer and performed”special missions” for two years. After that, she spent two years in graduate school before returning to the Coast Guard Academy as an officer.
McCarron was a member of the track team while studying at the academy. She wrote in her resume:”Love running and hope to be a lifelong athlete.”
·“Bag Man” Coast Guard Major McCarron
However, this one is doing”athlete dream”The female officer eventually became the president’s military assistant, responsible for guarding the heavy weapon known as the”tool of the end”-the”nuclear hand bag.” It only takes 5 minutes from opening this package to launching the nuclear bomb.
In addition, the”bag man” will also perform a number of tasks for Trump Outreach tasks. According to Bloomberg News White House reporter Jennifer Jacobs on Twitter:”In addition to carrying’nuclear football’, military assistants also handle the president’s phone calls and business trips. They form the link between the president and the White House military office. ”
This shows the importance of Trump’s responsibility as a “carrying person”. However, the rank of this post is not high, just a major officer. But it is undeniable that this profession is still very promising, and there have been”bag-handlers” who have been promoted to the US Senate.
What exactly is”nuclear football”?
The job of”carrying a bag” is actually an individual effort.
On the surface,”Nuclear Football” is just an ordinary black handbag, but outside It is made of bulletproof metal material and weighs up to 20 kg. According to the Associated Press, the reason why it is called”nuclear football” is because this black suitcase is enough to hold a football.
In 1965, the George Washington University National Security Archives obtained information on early”nuclear football” Top secret memo. It shows that the president and military aides have repeatedly complained that the 20-kilogram”nuclear football” contains too many documents. A senior defense official believes that it is necessary to reduce the weight of the”nuclear football”, but he changed his words:”However, I also believe that our’courier’ is strong enough to carry an extra pound or two of paper. ”
· “Nuclear Football”, the full name of the President’s Emergency Handbag
As a device that allows the President of the United States to authorize the launch of nuclear weapons at any time and anywhere, this”world’s most dangerous handbag” was born in Kennedy During the presidency.
At that time, when the Cuban missile crisis broke out, Kennedy worried that a nuclear war might be staged at any time. In order to prevent the U.S. military from launching a nuclear weapon attack without authorization, or when the President decides to launch a nuclear attack but unable to get in touch with the military immediately, the U.S. military redesigned a whole set of nuclear war command and communication systems that are different from those in the past, including”Nuclear Football”.
So, what exactly is in this”huge power” handbag?
Bill Gerry, the former director of the U.S. Military Office once mentioned in his book, There are four items in”Nuclear Football”:
A black book-lists the retaliatory nuclear strike measures that the United States can take when it encounters a nuclear attack;
A notepad-records the location of the secret bunker to protect the president’s personal safety in an emergency;
One Folder-the operating instructions of the emergency broadcast system;
A small card-to verify that it is not someone else who activated the nuclear weapons, but the president Myself.
Simply put, the essence of”nuclear football” is a set of The portable satellite communication devices that give orders for nuclear war, and it is these simple paper and cards and other devices that form what the United States calls”doomsday tools.”
According to convention, as long as the US presidents leave the White House, they will”carry” this portable package. Once the president says to the military,”Go ahead, this is my verification code”, the entire nuclear weapon launch process begins. Once the missile is launched, it cannot be withdrawn.
·“Bag Man” and”Nuclear Football” in the Kennedy Period
In addition, the British”Sun” once disclosed that Together with the”nuclear football”, there is also the”biscuit”-a plastic piece the size of a credit card with a password that is changed daily, which is the password used by the US president to authorize the US military to launch a nuclear weapon attack. password”.
“biscuits” and”nuclear football” together form the US military’s nuclear command and communication system. Only after the president of the United States confirms the identity of the commander-in-chief of the army with the”golden code” on the”biscuits” can he start the”nuclear football” and trigger a nuclear war.
In the autobiography of Hugh Shelton, the former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, there is An interesting fact about”biscuits”:
Former US President Clinton was accidentally lost in 2000 The”biscuits” lasted for several months, but the president himself seemed unaware. The”bag carriers” did not realize that the”nuclear football” they carried during this period was actually just a”heavy decoration”. After all, without the president’s password, the”nuclear football” could not be activated at all, so there was no way to play it. The powerful power.
Fortunately, the”golden password” is changed daily, so even if the lost”biscuits” are When I found it, the password above had already expired.
The”bag man” outside the ward
Although “nuclear football” has never really been detonated since 1962, an unavoidable fact is that the biggest threat to global strategic security and stability is still From the huge nuclear arsenal of the United States.
A few days ago, Ambassador Geng Shuang, Deputy Permanent Representative of China to the United Nations, disarmament at the 75th UN General Assembly According to the International Security Council:”The U.S. military expenditure ranks first in the world all the year round, reaching more than 700 billion yuan in 2019, accounting for nearly 40%of the world’s total military expenditure, exceeding the total military expenditure of the 10 countries after the United States.”
Obviously, a lot of military spending is used to build, expand, and strengthen a huge nuclear arsenal to maintain the United States Strategic deterrence. Nearly 60 years have passed, and this”nuclear football” that can determine the fate of the world has long become one of the representatives of the US military.
In fact, among the entourage of Russian President Putin, you can also find similar American President The role of”bag man”. Russia’s “Doomsday Tool” contact terminal is code-named “Cheget”, and its working principle is similar to that of “nuclear football”. Like the United States, the Russian president’s”carrying man” is also served by strictly selected military personnel.
During Yeltsin’s rule in Russia,”Cheget” became a symbol of power . Even during the heart surgery, Yeltsin ordered the”bag man” to stand by at the door of the operating room. Yeltsin, who had just regained consciousness after the operation, asked the”bag man” to bring”Cheget” to his side.
Similarly, the US media claimed that Trump received the new crown at Walter Reid Medical Center During the treatment of pneumonia, he still carried a”nuclear football” with him. This time triggered another disturbance in American politics.
According to the”25th Amendment”, the President of the United States is taking In the case of drugs that cause mood swings or mental illness, power should be transferred to the vice president. Therefore, the Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi spoke directly at the Capitol, saying that he planned to build presidential capabilities based on the amendment Committee to review the president’s qualifications.
Perhaps the Americans themselves are also afraid, if “nuclear football” is Start hastily, the consequences will be disastrous.
Now, Trump has been discharged from the hospital quickly, but he did not expect the”bag man” to be recruited Up. There are only four”guards” left. I wonder if these people who are still close to the new coronary pneumonia patients behind the president will feel a little panic when they are on duty day and night.
