One has to wonder when the Pentagon and NORAD are completely “unaware” of where a missile originated from, much less who launched it on Monday night over the skies of California. If you look at the latest breaking news via CNN and KCBS news (video link provided below), you’ll see a very large contrail streaking across the dusky sky.
According to my husband, an Army Ranger (retired), it’s an SLBM. That’s short for a short-range ballistic submarine missile, capable of delivering whatever a navy could see fit to load on it. That includes a nuclear warhead, folks. So who launched it, and why? Speculations range from the USA showing it’s might – something that doesn’t ring true with the Obama camp, or someone else. China? Russia? Who knows. But one thing is for sure, it’s got people talking.
This could be something meant to generate propaganda – against other countries, or be a threat by another country towards us. Either way, our government isn’t talking about it. Not one base has fessed up to launching anything, and we still haven’t heard from the Navy.
See it for yourself. Draw your own conclusions, at least until our government decides what tale it’s going to spin. http://www.cnn.com/video/data/2.0/video/bestoftv/2010/11/09/exp.nr.mystery.launch.cnn.html
