Air Force Global Strike Command is a major command of the United States Air Force outlined in a recent roadmap for the improvement of the United
States' nuclear arsenal. It assumed the nuclear-capable assets of Air Force Space Command on Dec. 1, 2009 and took over the nuclear-capable assets of
Air Combat Command on Feb. 1, 2010. Its creation was outlined in the recommendations of the investigation following the 2007 United States Air Force
nuclear weapons incident. The command was activated August 7, 2009, at Barksdale Air Force Base, La; 5 air force bases will fall directly under it:
Barksdale AFB, Minot AFB, Whiteman AFB, F. E. Warren AFB, and Malmstrom AFB.
On Sept. 3, 2009, the 69th Bomb Squadron reactivated at Minot Air
Force Base to support Air Force Global Strike Command.
And that's how I found out about these folks. I was doing another thread on a newly made hyper-sonic missile that could hit anywhere on the earth in
one hour [www.abovetopsecret.com...
]. The Air Force Global Strike Command wsa mentioned in that article as the ones who
will over see the new unit.
While I was looking up on them, I saw this-about the delievery system the unit would use and/or be in control of the new missle(s):
System can be delivered via:
Ballistic missiles, based on either the ICBM or SLBM
Hypersonic cruise missiles, such as the Boeing X-51
Air launched missiles
Space based launch platforms
DARPA Falcon Project-now defunded in 2009-but its ideas and people lived on. Top Secret stuff. Maybe related to the recent launch of the latest USAF
space vehicle as noted by fellow ATSer anxietydisorder [Thread: Prompt Global Strike Is Now In Orbit, X37B Was Just A Cover....
The X-37B sits on top of an Atlas V rocket
With all of this I came to the conclusing that Iran is about to get whacked with some serious stuff-from Space. Get your popcorn ready and get a good
seat because once it starts..... it will be good. Compliments of: The USAF Global Strike Command.
And just in case Iran, or anyone else who may wish to get involved on the evil side, we have this to counter any special surprises they may have up
their sleeves: Airborne Laser Shoots Down Missile
