Back during the Cold War the US had the Strategic Air Command (SAC) which over saw all strategic forces. In 1992 the Pentagon Created US Strategic
Command (STRATCOM) as a unified command to take over the strategic mission.
The thing is STRATCOM doesn't have direct control of it's forces (Planes, Subs, and Missiles), it Barrows them as needed! My Question is, Why did
they do it that way? Wouldn't it have made more scense to set STRATCOM up as a mini military branch all its own, with the ability to buy and
maintain it's own weapon systems and command structure? I would think that would be more cost effective, since it already has it's own command and
