Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis to visit US Strategic Command Headquarters
On Wednesday, Secretary Mattis will visit Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota, the only US base to host all components necessary for a full-scale nuclear response.
According to the Department of Defense, the Air Force base is the only installation to have two legs of the nuclear triad: strategic bombers and intercontinental ballistic missiles.
"I can not solve the deterrent problem reducing it from a triad", he added, referring to the delivery of nuclear weapons by land, sea and air.
"If I want to send the most compelling message, I have been persuaded that is the triad, and its framework is the right way to go". "That's how a deterrent works". Developed during the Cold War as part of the U.S. Minot also hosts the 91st Missile Wing, which operates 150 Minuteman III ICBMs, and the 5th Bomb Wing, which flies the nuclear bombers.

Mattis cast his visit as part of an effort to ensure that the USA maintains the kind of nuclear firepower that convinces any potential nuclear opponent that attacking would be suicidal.
Offutt officials say Mattis will make the stop Thursday and receive briefings.
U.S. Strategic Command employs tailored nuclear, space, cyberspace, global strike, missile defense, joint electronic warfare, and intelligence capabilities that provide a holistic approach to deterrence and assurance.
The trip focusing on the US nuclear arsenal comes after North Korea carried out its sixth and most powerful nuclear test to date.
