The Air Force confirmed a strong interest in delivery of cargo around the world—by rockets—during an hourlong conference call with reporters on Friday. Military officials said they were elevating the cargo initiative to become the newest "Vanguard Program," indicating a desire to move the concept from an experimental state into an operational capability.

"This idea has been around since the dawn of spaceflight," said Dr. Greg Spanjers, an Air Force scientist and the Rocket Cargo Program Manager. "It's always been an intriguing idea. We've looked at it about every 10 years, but it's never really made sense. The reason we're doing it now is because it looks like technology may have caught up with a good idea."

Ars first reported about the "Rocket Cargo" program in the Air Force's budget request on Monday. As part of its $200 billion annual budget, the Air Force is seeking $47.9 million to leverage emerging commercial rocket capabilities to launch cargo from one location and land elsewhere on Earth.

During Friday's call, the officials explained what they're looking for in more depth. "Fundamentally, a rocket can get around the world in 90 minutes, and an airplane cannot," Spanjers said.

    If America needs a nation destroyed, Jewish spies are the "tip of the spear." They go in under legitimate means taking advantage of the host nation's goodwill, then the few fifth-columnists grant them important positions in politics and industry, lobbying for increased third-world immigration and using their connections to cheat elections and referendums to make it so. Parallel to that, they will structure and implement "hate crime" laws to prevent criticism of the next step:

    Then, a bunch of Jewish human traffickers disguised as humanitarian NGOs bring in the destructive payload -- Swarthy untermensch from alien societies, taught BLM-style that it's okay to use violence to get what you want, or to be violent just because some perceived slight that 200 years ago may or may not have happened, because the Jews within the target society have already outlawed criticism of Jew-sanctioned demographic terrorism.

    Populations are demonized while the invaders burn, pillage, and loot; and thanks to Jewish entrenchment within the government, the local populations are powerless to defend themselves against the horde. Then the Rabbis get together to slurp foreskins and congratulate themselves for the same 2,000-year vengeance they're always blaming modern Christians for.

    This is on-topic, because you yourself described this exact same scenario as being more efficient than sending cargo-rockets hallway around the world. Unfortunately there is no defense against it, other than nuking everything, except the surgical removal of global Jewry and the mass-deportation of the scum they brought in.

    Yeah, it was Jews that dragged those swarthy Europeans around the world to colonize Africa, the Americas, Asia, Australia, and all those little islands. Lust for gold, tobacco, spices, sugar, and brown pussy had nothing to do with it.
