PA defense expert, Tom Mullen, is quoted in CNBC weighing in on a hot button issue Trump's new defense secretary will face short-term.

Several high-profile weapon systems will be decided by the next Pentagon chief but one to modernize Cold War-era firepower may already be in trouble.

Retired Marine Corps Gen. James Mattis, President-elect Donald Trump's choice to become Defense secretary, expressed concern last year about the Air Force's ground-based Minuteman III, one leg of the nation's nuclear triad. Several of the major defense contractors are contenders to replace the aging Minuteman III with a next-generation missile technology. 

Commenting on the topic, Tom Mullen said: There is no easy button for ISIS. This is a complex problem, but we do have a lot of good plans to draw on. We're not starting from scratch here by any means.”
