Are there still operational, targeted nuclear weapons, on ballistic missiles, which would explode as they hit the ground to form a crater kilometres across and hundreds of metres deep, unlike air burst nuclear explosions, from cruise missile delivery?

Each submarine is equipped with a complement of 24 Trident II missiles. However, since the abandonment of the START II treaty, the U.S. attack submarines are equipped to launch, but do not currently carry nuclear Tomahawk missiles. goal under the SORT treaty is to reduce from 1,600 warheads deployed on over 500 missiles in 2003 to 500 warheads on 450 missiles in 2012. Sea-launch weapons make up the majority of weapons declared under START II rules. All USAF Minuteman II missiles have been destroyed in accordance to START and their launch silos sealed or sold to the public. – Heavy bomber group:

The US Air Force also operates a strategic nuclear bomber fleet. The U.S. The first Minuteman III were removed under this plan in 2007 while, at the same time, the warheads deployed on Minuteman IIIs began to be upgraded from smaller W62s to larger W87s from decommissioned Peacekeeper missiles.

- Sea-based ICBMs:

The US Navy currently has 14 SSBN Ohio-class submarines deployed. is said to be considering retaining 500 warheads on 450 missiles. Other warheads are in some step of the disassembly process.”

“- Land-based intercontinental ballistic and cruise missiles (ICBMs)

The US Air Force currently operates about 450-500 ICBMs at around 15 missile complexes located primarily in the northern Rocky Mountain states and the Dakotas. Approximately 12 U.S. The Strategic Air Command which for decades had kept nuclear weapons aboard bomber aircraft aloft 24 hours a day was disbanded in 1992 and merged into the US Strategic Command. These are all of the Minuteman III ICBM variants. Peacekeeper missiles were phased out of the Air Force inventory in 2005. Some 350 of these bombs are deployed at seven airbases in six European NATO countries[11]; of these, 180 tactical B61 nuclear bombs fall under a nuclear sharing arrangement.”

“For 2007, the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists listed the U.S. Some Trident missiles are equipped with the W88 warhead.. with about 5,400 total nuclear warheads: around 3,575 strategic and 500 nonstrategic warheads; and about 1,260 additional warheads held in the inactive stockpile. maintains about 400 nuclear gravity bombs capable of use by F-15, F-16, and F-35. The U.S. To comply with the START II most US multiple independently targetable reentry vehicles, or MIRVs, have been eliminated and replaced with single warhead missiles. All 64 B-1s were retrofitted to operate in a solely conventional mode by 2007 and are no longer counted as nuclear forces.

In addition to this, the US armed forces can also deploy tactical smaller nuclear weapons either through cruise missiles or with conventional fighter-bombers. The bomber force consists of 94 B-52s, and 19 B-2s

Burnley fan’s DIY tour aims to tackle big four | Reuters

Bars on a Saturday night are normally lined with fans in the red of Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal and the blue of Chelsea, eager to catch every minute of their matches.. “We were hoping to play in Indonesia as well and Thailand because it was meant to be a bit of a bonding session for the players but we weren’t able to do that in the end because it was deemed a security risk so they decided to (just) come here.”

WORLD CLOCKS

The co-founder of Freight Investor Services LTD, who travels to Singapore bi-monthly for business, watched proudly as his English Championship (second division) club rounded off a successful tour with a 1-0 win over a Singapore select side.

“(English team’s pre-season tours) tend to be very quick trips by like Liverpool, who were here one day and were a bit prima donnaish (they) kind of went and left where as these guys have mingled and talked to people. I think the team have done very well.”

(Writing by Patrick Johnston in Singapore, Editing by Justin Palmer)

SINGAPORE Businessman John Banaszkiewicz was so fed up of the Premier League’s top four teams claiming all the support in south east Asia that he decided to sponsor his beloved Burnley a trip to Singapore to boost their appeal.

“At that time they were discussing their shirt sponsorship with Fun88, which is a Singapore based company, and I said they are absolutely mad about soccer out there (Singapore) so what about organising a tour?” Banaszkiewicz said.

The photo prompted Burnley to invite Banaszkiewicz to come to watch the 2-1 home defeat by eventual Premier League winners Chelsea at the end of January.

But with Burnley’s surprise 1-0 win over Manchester United in last season’s Premier League and this trip to Singapore, the Burnley-born Banaszkiewicz said he had already noticed an increase in interest in the two-times English champions.

So as the Premier League’s top clubs looked at North America, Australia, Africa or Asia for their usually lavish pre-season tours, Banaszkiewicz started organising a visit to south east Asia.

“I said (to the hairdresser) I am going to watch Burnley and they were like ‘oh yes 5-0 (referring to the midweek win over Home United) they are playing Singapore’ so slowly the message is coming across.”

But hundreds of the few thousand in attendance on a muggy Saturday night at the Jalan Besar Stadium came in Manchester United shirts, demonstrating the challenge ahead for Burnley and Banaszkiewicz.

“It is a small country but such a big market for football and we would like to get more claret and blue supporters in this part of the world,” a sharply-dressed Banaszkiewicz told Reuters.

With the prank providing some office laughs John B, as he is more commonly known in Burnley circles, decided to send a photo of the clocks to his then Premier League side.

And Banaszkiewicz believes the key to building support in the region is for the club to show that modest side, which they demonstrated by attending coaching camps and meeting the locals.

“It has been a bit of an experience to be honest because we have never done anything like that before, it is normally done by agents so we have pretty much done a DIY job ourselves.”

“We have all the world clocks because we deal with commodities and trading and we put a clock where our offices are, so Shanghai, Singapore, Dubai and I put one with Burnley on the wall,” a chuckling Banaszkiewicz said.

“I always felt there were only three or four clubs that dominate south east Asia and this team (Burnley) has a rich tradition and has beaten some of those big clubs last season. This isn’t going to be a one-off.”

The story of how Burnley made it to the tiny south east Asian city state is an unlikely one which started with the clocks in the London office of Banaszkiewicz’s company earlier this year and demonstrated a warmth that the club should market.

Singaporeans are obsessed with the Premier League, and the top four especially

UPDATE 1-MGM-branded casino planned for Vietnam resort area | Reuters

Nathan said the license allows 180 table games and 2,000

electronic games (such as slot machines), split between the two

casino properties.

The Vancouver-based investment group has hired Las

Vegas-based MGM Mirage to operate the $400 million, 1,100-room

resort, which will be called the MGM Grand Ho Tram.

“The Ho Tram project represents one of the most compelling

investment opportunities in the integrated casino resort

industry,” Harbinger Capital CEO Philip Falcone said in a

statement.

MGM has a joint-venture project in Macau, and rival Wynn

Resorts (WYNN.O) this week opened its second casino-resort in

the Chinese enclave.

Asian Coast Development said its multi-resort property will

be built on 420 acres (168 hectares) of land along beaches

bordering the South China Sea in southwest Vietnam, about 130

kilometers (81 miles) from Ho Chi Minh City.

China’s Macau, the only place in the country where gambling

is legal, surpassed Las Vegas several years ago to become the

world’s largest source of gambling revenue.

Nathan said site construction work is already underway.

U.S.-based casino operators have focused for several years

on expanding into Asia, where gambling is popular, but legal

outlets are few.

LOS ANGELES, April 21 (Reuters) – A group backed by hedge

fund Harbinger Capital Partners plans to open in early 2013

Vietnam’s first Las Vegas-style casino resort in a coastal area

to be called the Ho Tram Strip.

Asian Coast Development Ltd said on Wednesday that it had

named Lloyd Nathan, formerly president of MGM Mirage’s (MGM.N)

global gaming development, as its chief executive officer, a

post from which he will oversee the project’s financing and

construction.

Asian Coast, which holds a 50-year investment license from

the Vietnamese government, said overall plans call for a $4.2

billion project that will encompass five resorts, two of which

will include gambling.

Las Vegas Sands Corp (LVS.N) has three casinos in Macau and

later this month will open an integrated casino resort in

Singapore, the island nation’s second such project.

He also said Asian Coast expects to determine an operator

for the second resort sometime later this year.
