The US military command that scans North America's skies for enemy missiles and aircraft plans to move its communications gear to a Cold War-era mountain bunker, officers said.
The shift to the Cheyenne Mountain base in Colorado is designed to safeguard the command's sensitive sensors and servers from a potential electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack, military officers said.
"My primary concern was... are we going to have the space inside the mountain for everybody who wants to move in there, and I'm not at liberty to discuss who's moving in there," he said.

I don't blame them with that madman in Russia vowing nuclear annihilation every chance he gets.
“According to preliminary estimates, the fund for payments to depositors of the two largest insolvent banks, which employ temporary administration, ‘Nadra’ and ‘Delta Bank,’ requires $20.5 billion.” That’s money which must come from the Fund, and, ultimately from the loans that Western taxpayers, via USAID, IMF, EU, etc., will first pay to the principal and interest to Ukraine’s bondholders. Some if not all of the losses will then be dumped on those Western taxpayers, the general public — who can’t experience any of the gains, if any.
Reports that during the Minsk-2 meeting Poroshenko offered Putin to take the Donbass were denied both by Moscow and Kiev. Nevertheless, the proposal is consistent with the logic of both the so-called government in Kiev and its US curators. Just as is Russia’s refusal to entertain such an option.
The information on Poroshenko’s proposal was published by Forbes in an article which revealed details of Putin’s meeting with prominent Russian business figures on March 19. At a closed meeting with the board of directors of the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs (RSPP), Putin allegedly discussed in detail various aspects of the Ukrainian crisis, from sanctions to Novorossia. According to Forbes, Putin said that at the Minsk-2 meeting Poroshenko proposed that Russia take Donbass:
“He told me flatly: take the Donbass. I answered: have you gone nuts? I don’t need the Donbass. If you don’t need it, announce its independence.”
Russia has threatened to use “nuclear force” to defend its annexation of Crimea and warned that the “same conditions” that prompted it to take military action in Ukraine exist in the three Baltic states, all members of Nato.

Cold War is officially back, I wonder how it started, when we financed Ukranian coup or when we attacked Syria with "Syrian Rebels"
