After reading the excellent article written by Paul Craig Roberts titled, Zbigniew Brzezinski, I wondered what it would take for Donald Trump to launch a nuclear attack against Russia.  

The commander-in-chief’s power is clear: He or she has sole authority to use nuclear weapons.

The consultation lasts as long as the president wishes, but if enemy missiles are heading toward the U.S. and the president must order a counterstrike, the consultation may last just 30 seconds. The tight time line raises the risk of launching hastily on a false warning.

Some advisers may try to change the president’s mind or resign in protest—but ultimately, the Pentagon must comply with the commander-in-chief’s order.
