Opponents of trump called the test of ICBM Minuteman III “salute in honor of the failure of impeachment”


The newly formed U.S. space forces tested the Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile. The tests were carried out on aviation base Vandenberg in the state of California.


ICBM Minuteman III, equipped with test sensors, without a warhead, was tested as part of a program to study the so-called "global strike."

ICBM flew about 6,75 thousand kilometers. The place of the fall of the warhead simulation was the Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands.

As noted by the command of the US space forces, Minuteman III has confirmed its characteristics as part of its ability to participate in delivering a "global strike."

From the press service of the Pentagon:

A missile test launch is not a reaction to any military or political event in the United States or in the world at large.

This commentary appeared after opponents of the US called the ICBM test “Trump’s salute in honor of the impeachment failure” on the network. Moreover, the logic is somewhat strange, since the "salute" itself took place even before the official completion of the impeachment procedure in the US Senate.

The commander of the 576th squadron of the US Air Force Omar Colbert:

The Minuteman III test is a visible indicator of our national defense capabilities. It is also a signal for potential aggressors.

      1. From this "salute" ours probably benefited for ourselves: SPRN and VKS trained for a real purpose.
      2. As for the "answer". At the 5th minute, it becomes clear where the product is going, the shooting direction is also determined by the route. And by apogee determine the area of ​​aiming BB.
      The real situation, the real training. As we at one time "welcomed" the adversary - Thank you for providing!

      Such launches are always coordinated by special communications between the military with our country and also with China.

    I understand perfectly well that ordinary Americans are more important than the next election than all geopolitics combined.

    But, if they ate more cholesterol, they would understand something. And then this news in the American media would have sounded like "The first training before the Third World War."

    So the USA no longer has hope for its AUGs and other things ..?
    They are afraid of our supersonic, etc. It’s time to start negotiating an equal, not arms race. Russia is always ready for an equal conversation ..
    As Putin spoke correctly, "If there is no Russia, why then this world .."

    Failure to impeach? I’m like a drum, but even I knew in advance that the majority in the Senate is for Donald ... And all the movements of the Democrats are worthless. The show is the show. And already mattresses are able to do it. One of the paper tears, the second minitman launches. People are thrilled.

      The re-election of Trump as the President of the United States will have dire consequences for Zelensky. Ukraine urgently needs to intervene in the US elections, or (BCH) only IP - it is necessary to make the Ukrainian. The concept of “fake news” appeared only in mid-2016, but since then it has already firmly entered political discourse, journalistic everyday life, and even academic dictionaries. It all started with Macedonian teenagers who decided to make money on the Internet. In the summer of 2016, the editor of the Buzzfeed news site, Craig Silverman, noticed a stream of funny and completely finger-sucked stories coming from the Macedonian city of Veles. The journalist and his colleagues began to understand this story and found more than 140 completely fake sites with a huge number of Facebook followers. And dudes on advertising earned a lot of money, they were reprinted by all US publications.
      The idea of ​​turning the United States into the Socialist States of America is as old as the country itself. Firstly, it is beautiful. Secondly, the phrase “one Nation for the Working Class” sounds more modern than “one Nation under God”.
