THE United States has launched an unarmed Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile in a show of force hours after issuing North Korea a stern warning.
“The purpose of the ICBM test launch is to validate and verify the safety, security, effectiveness, and readiness of the weapon system,” Vandenberg Space Force said in a statement to Fox News.
“The Airmen and Guardians who perform this vital mission are some of the most skillfully trained and dedicated personnel in America’s Air Force,” Space Launch Delta 30 vice commander Colonel Bryan Titus told the outlet.
“These test launches demonstrate the readiness of US nuclear forces and provide confidence in the lethality and effectiveness of the nation’s nuclear deterrent.”
