You want to talk about the “competency crisis,” this example is just beyond belief.

Reuters:

Britain’s Trident nuclear-deterrent system misfired during a test last month, sending a missile crashing into the ocean off the Florida coast near the submarine that launched it, The Sun newspaper reported on Wednesday.

The Ministry of Defence confirmed that an “anomaly” had occurred during the test but said Britain’s “nuclear deterrent remains safe, secure and effective”.

Obviously, the missile wasn’t armed with a warhead.

But still.
