Air based Laser to further escalate global tension

17-06-2003 14:39

In just 2004 the U.S. military plans to have its airborn laser ready. The idea is to neutralise the threat of Long-range nuke tipped missiles. Using converted 747s fitted with a massive High-Energy Laser missiles can be destroyed in the 'bloom' phase early in their takeoff. Acting injustly whilst smothering any possible avenue for resistence and the assertion of national or transnational autonomy will lead to outright global war. This is another step in the wrong direction.Attached below is a recently submitted environmental impact assessment submitted to the U.S. Gov. If any of you are interested in finding out more about this the project is the YAL-1A Airborne laser. According to "Combat Aircraft" the first prototype (a heavily modified 747-400) was delivered to Edwards Airforce base on the 19th of December.

Do you want to be a weapons inspector?

A British military convoy carrying illegal weapons of mass destruction is due to arrive in Scotland on Monday. The heavily guarded convoy of lorries slipped out of a top-secret atomic bomb factory near Reading on Saturday morning and travelling by road is due to arrive at its destination - a nuclear bomb store at Coulport on Loch Long on the Clyde - on Monday afternoon.
Each of the three lorries in the convoy is thought to be carrying two nuclear warheads which each have a destructive capacity eight times the bomb that destroyed Hiroshima.
