Today's quiz

Courtesy of Workers World:
What aggressive, militarist regime recently held war maneuvers in the Pacific and tested intercontinental missiles that could carry nuclear warheads for 4,800 miles?

The wrong answer to this question is the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.

The right answer is the United States.

On June 14, the U.S. Air Force held what it called “a quality control test” for its fleet of 500 Minuteman III missiles. One missile traveled 4,800 miles towards the central Pacific, and three test warheads landed near the Marshall Islands. According to the Air Force, that was where they were supposed to land. The Pentagon is supposed to have almost 10,000 nuclear warheads available.
Although this was not a secret test in any way, you would have been hard-pressed to learn about it from the corporate media. North Korea says it plans more tests and you can expect more shock and horror from the corporate media and politicians about those. The U.S. is also planning more missile tests; expect silence to greet those.
