(NaturalNews) To the astonishment of Californians, the U.S. Navy has now launched a second thermonuclear missile over Los Angeles. “The second test launch of the Trident II (D5) missile from a ballistic submarine in the Pacific Ocean took place Monday afternoon,” reports the LA Times.
As Natural News readers know, two days ago I exhaustively documented the escalation of the covert war between the United States and a Russian-Chinese partnership. The Trident missile launch, I explained, was a “warning shot” against Russia and China:
Last night’s test launch of the Trident missile over Orange County was staged near a high population area for a tactical reason: To have as many witnesses (and videos) as possible, sending a very visible warning message to China that says, “We can destroy you if you don’t back off.”
Russia and China, I explained, are partnering for a “massive first strike” against the United States, involving cyber attacks, economic attacks, missile attacks against US Navy warships and even the possibility of EMP weapons that attack America’s power grid infrastructure.
As published in the LA Times, U.S. Defense Secretary Ashton Carter all but said the missile launches are a warning against global aggressors: (bolding added)
The submarine missile test came late Saturday after Defense Secretary Ashton Carter addressed a defense forum at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley about the U.S. “adapting our operational posture and contingency plans” to deter Russia’s “aggression.”
“We do not seek a cold, let alone a hot, war with Russia,” he said to the forum. “We do not seek to make Russia an enemy. But make no mistake; the United States will defend our interests, our allies, the principled international order, and the positive future it affords us all.”
In other words, these missile launches are a warning to America’s enemies, sending the irrefutable message that we can nuke your cities if you provoke us.
America’s enemies are posturing toward war
The very fact that the United States feels it necessary to send such a message is proof that America’s enemies are posturing for war. It’s the geopolitical equivalent of a dog growling when another dog gets too close to his bowl of food. But this growl costs U.S. taxpayers at least $31 million per missile, and that doesn’t even include all the support services and personnel needed to prepare, launch and recover them.
Trident missiles, by the way, have a range of over 4,000 nautical miles. As reference, Honolulu and Beijing are approximately 4400 nautical miles apart. This means a U.S. submarine armed with Trident missiles could launch a nuclear strike on Beijing, China, from anywhere in the mid-Pacific Ocean. (It’s the ultimate tactical deterrent.)
It is my opinion that U.S. nuclear submarines are right now the single most important factor preventing China and Russia from escalating their war actions against America. Not only does America have the technical expertise to nuke enemy cities, it has already proven it is willing to drop atomic bombs on civilian populations in order to protect its national interests. If you refute that this has ever happened, you are ignorant of history and probably need to review World War II, Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
What does the U.S. Navy know about Russia and China that we’re not being told?
Stunning photo shows missile flying over the Golden Gate Bridge
Check out the astonishing photo at this Daily Mail link.
There it is, positioned in the sky over San Francisco! This missile, interestingly enough, was spotted by people all over California and even Arizona. Some people claimed to have seen it from Colorado, and believe it or not, a few online comments claimed to have spotted it from Hawaii. If these comments are true, it means the Trident missile must have achieved a very high altitude to be visible from so far away.
