USAF mercenaries making country less safe

Just say it: radical christianic terrorism.

In 2013 Maj. Gen. Michael Carey, an important figure in national security and commander of the 20th Air Force based at FE Warren Air Force Base in Cheyenne, Wyoming was fired.

Overall, Carey was responsible for three wings of U.S. intercontinental ballistic missiles: 9,600 people and 450 missiles. FE Warren AFB is a participant in the Combat Raider exercise just concluding in the Powder River Training Complex.
Air Force records obtained by The Associated Press show they bought, distributed and used the hallucinogen LSD and other mind-altering illegal drugs as part of a ring that operated undetected for months on a highly secure military base in Wyoming. After investigators closed in, one airman deserted to Mexico. The service members accused of involvement in the LSD ring were from the 90th Missile Wing, which operates one-third of the 400 Minuteman 3 missiles that stand “on alert” 24/7 in underground silos scattered across the northern Great Plains.

i drove by this incident on CO71 caused by the 320th Missile Squadron of the 90th Missile Wing based at FE Warren.
The accident happened May 17, 2014, but the Air Force only explained the consequences on Friday after repeated inquiries by the AP starting in January 2015. The Air Force said the accident caused no injuries and did not risk public safety. The damaged missile was removed from its silo. The launch site is operated by the 320th Missile Squadron of the 90th Missile Wing in a remote area of northeastern Colorado. [Air Force: Human Error Damaged Nuclear-Armed Missile in Silo]
Thomas Jefferson wrote that a standing army would lead to military adventurism and ultimately turn on its own citizens; now, America has become the Hamiltonian empire Jefferson warned us about. Anyone who believes America is safer because ending the draft leading to a service filled with mercenaries is delusional.
The Office of the Inspector General found that Sandia had illegally used taxpayer money to hire former U.S. Rep. Heather Wilson and two other consultants as part of its efforts to lobby the Obama administration and key members of Congress for an extension of its management contract. Sandia in August 2015 agreed to repay the federal government $4.79 million to settle the allegations. In May 2017, President Donald Trump appointed Wilson as secretary of the Air Force.

On Trump Organization orders bombers from Ellsworth Air Force Base near Rapid City, South Dakota are targeting alleged Taliban drug facilities to prevent harm to "innocent Afghan civilians" all the while escalating its war on civilians. Anyone seeking retaliation could roll a truck bomb into any soft target after a drone or B-1 or some jock stationed at Cannon Air Force Base in New Mexico targets a wedding party or religious service.

Service members are no longer serving their country: they're serving a despot, a death industry and themselves.

"Combat Raider" exercises have been suspended until late May, 2019 after the Air Force covered up near mid-air collision in 2016 between B-1 and civilian aircraft over Powder River Training Complex. [Powder River Council prepares for third annual meeting]
