US Air Force : Missile Men's 'Slumber Surprise' (or is it?)



Hush your mouth. Close your cake-hole. Cut the clap-trap. Button your lip. And ensure you trap stays shut.

"Decisive and urgent steps" are needed to restore the US Air Force's respect for nuclear weapons after three ballistic missile crew members fell asleep while holding classified launch code devices, US authorities said.

The incident at a base in North Dakota, just south of the Canadian border, is the latest in a series of nuclear mistakes which have plagued the US Air Force in recent months.

There was a time a Secretary of Defense might have been expected to fall on his sword after such a series of calamities.

Of course, there was a time when having a war criminal as president of the US would have been unheard of.

The USAF? Isn't that the mob that performed so pitifully on 9/11?

Does anyone know if the same brass are still in charge?
