The U.S. Navy said it launched a second — and final — thermonuclear Trident II missile in a planned exercise Monday afternoon from a submarine off the Southern California coast.
EDITOR’S NOTE: The US Navy just confirmed it launched a second Trident II thermonuclear test missile over Southern California late this afternoon, and the lame explanations continue. But what we do know is as Russia dominates the Middle East, and China flexes it’s muscle in the Pacific, the Obama government is wargaming nuclear missile attacks on the people of Los Angeles. You can just smell the coming false flag operation that’s right around the corner. Isn’t it time for the next “spontaneous” mass shooter to make an appearance? That’s America in 2015, people…sad, isn’t it?
The second test launch of the Trident II (D5) missile from a ballistic submarine in the Pacific Ocean took place Monday afternoon, the Navy said. The blast-off took place to far less fanfare than Saturday night’s launch, which provoked residents from San Francisco to Mexico to take to social media, posting photos of an eerie-looking bluish-green plume smeared above the Pacific.
Speculations were wide-ranging, including rumors of an otherworldly alien UFO visit. In fact, the streak was generated from the Trident missile’s rocket motor.
The Navy later confirmed a ballistic submarine launched an unarmed Trident II (D5) missile in a test flight, but would not define the window of time available for conducting additional launches, nor would it disclose where the exercise was actually taking place.
“It’s important that we test these missiles for our national security,” said John M. Daniels, spokesman for the secretive Strategic Systems Programs office, which oversees the Navy’s nuclear-tipped missile arsenal. “We don’t announce future launches, but this is it for any time soon.”
The Kentucky, the ballistic submarine, conducted the two launches as part of a demonstration and shakedown operation, or DASO, process that certifies the readiness of a submarine’s crew and strategic weapons before returning to operational availability.
It occurs after a submarine has its mid-life nuclear refueling, which involves replacing the expended nuclear fuel in the submarine’s reactor with new fuel. The Kentucky entered Puget Sound Naval Shipyard in Bremerton, Wash., in February 2012 for an overhaul that ended in April. source
