Ballistic missile submarines, often referred to as “#boomers,” serve as an undetectable launch platform for submarine-launched ballistic missiles. These submarines, designed for stealth and on constant patrol, are the most survivable leg of the #NuclearTriad with enough firepower on board to make just one #SSBN an extremely credible strategic deterrent

CSWMD: A Brief History

The Center for the Study of Weapons of Mass Destruction is at the forefront of education and research on the impact of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) on U.S. and global security.

The Center was established in 1994 as the Center for Counterproliferation Research at the request of then Assistant Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter as an outgrowth of the Defense Counterproliferation Initiative. Ambassador Robert Joseph, who later served as a Special Assistant to the President on the National Security Council staff and as an Under Secretary of State under President George W. Bush, served as the Center’s first Director.

In 2001, Dr. John Reichart succeeded Ambassador Joseph as Director, and the Center expanded its research from WMD challenges to the military to encompass a full spectrum of WMD issues affecting a broad set of U.S. government departments and agencies. In 2004, the Center for Counterproliferation Research changed its name to the Center for the Study of Weapons of Mass Destruction to reflect this change in mission. In 2008, pursuant to the Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff Instruction 1801.01C, the Center became the focal point for WMD education in Joint Professional Military Education. In 2015, Mr. Charles Lutes succeeded Dr. Reichart as Director, following Dr. Reichart’s retirement after more than forty years of government service.

Murdering PHILIPPINE History by CHINA's FUJIAN [email protected] must be PUNISHABLE by "ANTI-TERRORISM" bill! Dr. JOSE RIZAL Wrote His LAST Breath of LIFE in order to Discourage ALL Foreign INVADING Force of CHINESE Communist Party of China, That the Philippines is NOT AN INHERITANCE of CHINA from Fujian ANCESTORS but RATHER Our Beloved Eden Philippines is a GIFT of HEAVENS & Earth inherited by PILIPINOS from Our Creator GOD! Do you Think, Fujian Chinese Ancestors are the Founding Father of the 7,641 Islands of the Eastern Region of the Sun of the Sea Orient (Sea of the Far East) Under the Sky of the Enchanted Land of Our Beloved NATION? Click This Link https://twitter.com/abscbnnews/status/1064438126997880832 TO SEE HOW CHINA is trying to MANIPULATE the "LAST FAREWELL of DR. JOSE RIZAL" in "HONOR of FUJIAN DYNASTY'S VILLAGE in Jinjiang & Xiamen" to PRAISE the NAMES of the Chinese root great-grandfather of the Famous Witchcraft Historian's Ancestors of CHINA's FUJIAN PROVINCE! = The League of Fujian Students who infiltrated our Universities and Political System in order to BUILD ILLUSIONS that represent 51 years of Communist Cover-up Drama of different Actors on Engineering Philippine's Silent Invasion in order to CHART the Historic Lies 9-dash Lines of CCP-Terrorist Ancestors who FOUGHT for the Founding of NEW CHINA or "IISANG DAGAT Heal as ONE" Scam INSTEAD of PROTECTING/DEFENDING the SOVEREIGN Patrimony of God to our Lost Eden PHILIPPINES!

The Origin of the PILIPINO CIVILIZATION will VANISH forever, FUJIAN CHINESE TRIAD of CHINA is IN THE PHILIPPINES is in the PROCESS DELETING "ROOT ANCESTRY of the PILIPINOS" in our OWN HOME and COUNTRY, this is EQUIVALENT of "DELETING and REMOVING" our HUMAN IDENTITY from the Lineage of Adam after our Ancestors has been Created by God. (Genesis 1:26-28/Genesis 2:7-8/Genesis 10:5/John 8:41-42/Mat 6:9-13) If any CITIZENS of this COUNTRY are NOT AWARE of the PHILIPPINE History, they are considered to be a THREAT TO THE NATIONAL SECURITY! Mi Utimo Adios is not just a "PRAYER OF FINAL REDEMPTION, IT IS ALSO A SONG OF OUR COUNTRYMEN TO DEFEND AND PROTECT THE SOVEREIGN NATION OF GOD (Read all Line 5's of Paragraph 2,8,9,10 & 13) The Philippines is NOT A MARTYRDOM PLACE of FUJIAN CHINESE who fought for the BLOOD of their FUJIAN ANCESTORS! But the EDEN Philippines is a "RESTING PLACE, A PLACE of LOVE, PEACE, UNITY OF A NATION OF OUR HEAVENLY GOD" who praises no Famous Ancestor's NAME but RATHER the "NAME of the ALMIGHTY GOD!
