Grandiose plans for U.S. space 'control and domination'



Gen. John Hyten, USAF, commander of US Strategic Command, says the US government must fund "the Big 6” programs to modernize and improve America’s nuclear deterrent -- the Columbia-class ballistic missile submarine, the B-21 Raider bomber and its companion long-range strike weapon, intercontinental ballistic missiles, nuclear weapons, and nuclear command and control.

Hyten discusses how to improve the agility of the force, Russia's nuclear strategy and how the United States and its allies must respond, deterring war in space and much more in a wide-ranging April 12, 2018, interview with Defense & Aerospace Report Editor Vago Muradian at the Pentagon.

They are spending us into oblivion. The US cannot afford these programs as poverty is rising to unprecedented levels.

The US spends about 35% of the world total in military spending while the Russian are just over 4% of the global total.  Just who is leading the arms race?
