    > In March 2019, the Pentagon announced that it planned to conduct a test of an intermediate-range ballistic missile, or IRBM, defined as a ballistic missile with a maximum range of between 1,864 and 3,418 miles, in November.

    > "The Department of Defense conducted a flight test of a conventionally-configured ground-launched ballistic missile at approximately 8:30am. Pacific Time, today, Dec. 12, 2019, from Vandenberg Air Force Base, CA," the Pentagon said in a statement, according to a Tweet from CNN's Brown.

    > The U.S. test of a ground-launched cruise missile just 16 days after it withdrew from the Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty is a big deal.

  2. Probably shouldn’t use that against a country that has nuclear ballistic missiles. They’re going to see their present coming and aren’t going to wait to see what it is before they send their thank you.
