Nope, it’s not an alien coming to pay a visit to the West Coast, it’s the U.S. Air Force, flexing its muscles.
Late last night, a Minuteman 3 missile was fired from Vandenberg Air Force Base just outside Los Angeles, and its blazing launch lit up the sky.
The Minuteman is the only land-based Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) in the American arsenal, and it can fly over 8,000 miles with a payload of three nuclear warheads. But they’ve been in service since the 1960s, meaning regular tests are routine.
With China’s increasing aggression in the South China Sea, and North Korea continuing to dabble in nuclear weapons (while North Koreans starve) it’s no wonder Uncle Sam is checking up on his weaponry.
