Weapons of Mass Destruction



LG-118A Peacekeeper missile system being tested at the Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands.


The lines shown are the re-entry vehicles — one Peacekeeper can hold up to 10 nuclear warheads, each independently targeted. Were the warheads armed with a nuclear payload, each would carry with it the explosive power of twenty-five Hiroshima-sized weapons.

WMD? Yeah, we got 'em.

Is there someone specifically employed in the DOD to dream up these incredibly incongruous names for these almost divine weapons leadership around much of the world, esp. ours, lusts for with eternal erections? Hell, even E.D. meds warn if it doesn't wane in 4 hours get yourself to the ER because living in such a prolonged state can have serious side effects.

You can tell those missiles are not armed, there's no cowboy riding them to the target.

I don't know about you, but i love the bomb.
