According to PressTV
American forces are conducting a nuclear war drill called “Global Thunder” involving nuclear-capable missiles and bombers amid rising tensions with North Korea.
United States Strategic Command (USSTRATCOM) has described the secretive worldwide annual drill, which began on Tuesday, as preparing their forces for “wherever they are needed,” Daily Star Online reported.
The Pentagon has not released many details about the exercise, but its mission statement is to prepare the American nuclear command center for war.
The drill comes as the US is threatening to launch a military strike against North Korea with Russia and China warning against any such attack.
Moscow has spoken out over the drill, saying, “Russia’s nuclear potential significantly outstrips that of the US.”
According to reports, US forces are expected to practice first strike and missile defense exercises during the drill.
Habakkuk 2King James Version (KJV)
4 Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.
5 Yea also, because he transgresseth by wine, he is a proud man, neither keepeth at home, who enlargeth his desire as hell, and is as death, and cannot be satisfied, but gathereth unto him all nations, and heapeth unto him all people:
6 Shall not all these take up a parable against him, and a taunting proverb against him, and say, Woe to him that increaseth that which is not his! how long? and to him that ladeth himself with thick clay!
7 Shall they not rise up suddenly that shall bite thee, and awake that shall vex thee, and thou shalt be for booties unto them?
8 Because thou hast spoiled many nations, all the remnant of the people shall spoil thee; because of men’s blood, and for the violence of the land, of the city, and of all that dwell therein.
