Workers Removing Peacekeeper ICBMs From Silos

Workers at the F.E. Warren Air Force Base in Wyoming are removing Cold War-era Peacekeeper ICBMs from their silos at the rate of one per month, Denver’s 9News.com reported Friday (see GSN, Sept. 3).

After being removed from their silos, the 50 Peacekeeper missiles are set to be dismantled, according to 9News.com.

“The magnitude of what we’re doing ... taking the most powerful weapon that we’ve ever developed ... and removing it from our arsenal, is significant,” Col. John Faulkner said (Paul Johnson, 9News.com (Denver), Dec. 12).
