Nuc base sacks security chief

A nuclear missile base in Montana that failed a safety test this month has let its security chief go.

The 341st Missile Wing at Malmstrom Air Force base operates about a third of the nation's Minuteman III nuclear missiles.

It did not relieve Col. David Lynch from his command over the security forces group because of the failure, the base said in a statement released this week. But missile wing commander, Col. Robert Stanley, will feel more confident about passing the next inspection without him.

    Please tell me who our enemy is today???? Can't be communist china or Russia since we have free trade with them and all major American corps have billions of dollars invested in them especially why then do we still need nuclear weapons?to fight Arabs.....if indeed the above mentioned countries are indeed a threat then should not we shut all trade down with them and bring our jobs back here? I find all of this very odd.....I am pro military but ask questions....
