There is a media blackout because this time, we will be at war soon. Russia has taken measures to back its currency with oil from Ossentia (and soon Kazakastan) and our financial allies are abandoning the US to bank with China's AIIB. With Russia's improved currency and China's new central bank, they can funnel that money into BRICS and take over the reserve currency.

The currency war has already started, its just a matter of when the violence will begin.

The article says that the minute man missile was fitted with a test-reentry vehicle.

Maybe they were testing something?

I mean to say, lets not get our panties in a bunch until there is a two way exchange.

I have not only been to this AFB, but was escorted through a VIP tour of the launch facility and the rocket being readied. It was not this ICBM when I was there. Many such tests are launched but not normally ICBMs. The local news stations indicate it was a weapons test launch and nothing to worry about. They also downplayed a local Ebola risk today so we should worry?

Edit: KSBY news just announced the launch was specifically made to test the weapons readiness and effectiveness. It did not say where the ICBM hit...so how do they know how effective it was, hmmm?

The problem I see is the that RT picked up on this one and we know they are state ran media, they ended the article with this statement:

The missile test comes amid massive NATO war games across Eastern Europe. Meanwhile, the Russian military has deployed 76,000 troops, over 10,000 vehicles, 65 warships, 16 support vessels, 15 submarines, and 200 warplanes and helicopters for surprise drills across the country


To me it seems as if Russia is taking it as a threat!

vandenberg participates with AFOTEC or the air force operational test and evaluation center which is responsible for such tests in an impartial manner independent of air force policy or our foreign policy.

It is not political, it is our military announcing to theirs that systems are operational. Probably protocol response for all the sabre rattling Russia is doing.

We do these launces every year. If you look back over the last decade the only time the MSM covers it is when they delay or cancel launches. So pretty much it is not a story unless it does not happen.

An unarmed Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile launches at 3:36 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time, March 23, 2015, at Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif. The missile was randomly selected from F. E. Warren AFB, Wyo. as a part of the system's operational test and evaluation program, which provides valuable data to evaluators and validates the reliability of the ICBM fleet.

Apparently a routine test.

Yep, like they did in 2013..


The launch was scheduled long in advance, but the original mid-April date coincided with heightened tensions in East Asia. The launch was delayed to prevent it from being misconstrued by North Korea.

Oh wait..

That's what I was getting at (the timing) it may or may have not been scheduled but with the tensions high with Russia right now why not delay it unless it was to make a point.

Probably for the same reason Russian testing barely gets mentioned.


a reply to: NotMoose
Why has Russia not delayed their testing?
