Unless the Pentagon finally got the Stargate to work, this is ominous:
The Cheyenne mountain bunker is a half-acre cavern carved into a mountain in the 1960s that was designed to withstand a Soviet nuclear attack. From inside the massive complex, airmen were poised to send warnings that could trigger the launch of nuclear missiles.
What this means is that the Pentagon believes there is a realistic chance in the foreseeable future that an enemy could be setting off a nuke in the continental US either by smuggling it in, or through an ICBM. When the Obama administration first came to power Obama was hailed as a new FDR by some of his sycophants. Actually the decade he was bringing back was the Fifties not the Thirties, at least when it came to potential nuclear war with adversaries. Weakness breeds war, and the Obama administration has been doing its worst to convince our adversaries that war with the US might be a winnable proposition for our adversaries. This is delusional, but you can bet that many of our enemies believe that any nation that could elect a man like Obama as its President, must, in Mao’s phrase, be a paper tiger.
