Air Force Missile Test Comes With Off Kilter Explanation

Here in America, we are getting used to the turbulence.  We are almost comfortable in the exponential nature of the nightmare around us.

You can use the snowball metaphor, or you can pontificate on the pros and cons of burning out or fading away all you like – there is no denying that a sense of impeding change is on the horizon.

Our nation’s very survival likely depends on such a monumental shift in attitude, from the top to the bottom.

No, I’m not mincing words here because things are getting real, folks.  There are no more dry runs or drills.  We’re in the 4th quarter.  The metaphorical ninth inning.

And it is for this reason that the news of a missile test by the US Air Force was forced to carry with it a bizarre disclaimer.

The U.S. Air Force has conducted a test launch of an unarmed Minuteman 3 intercontinental ballistic missile from Vandenberg Air Force Base, California.

The Air Force Global Strike Command says in a statement the missile was launched at 11:01 p.m. Tuesday to determine the accuracy and reliability of the system and such tests “are not related to any real world events.”

That last bit of information, as silly as it seems to be, was very reassuring…at least for this slightly unnerved author.

Amid missile tests by North Korea and Russia over the course of the last two years, the US military has been relatively quiet in the skies, doing more work on their defensive capabilities than their offensive ones.
