|LOS ANGELES nike air max 2017 donna scontate , Aug. 2 (Xinhua) -- The U.S. Air Force launched an unarmed intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) early Wednesday from Vandenberg Air Force Base, California.
The Minuteman III missile, the only U.S. land-based ICBM in service nike air max 2017 bianche scontate , was fired at 2:10 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time (0910 GMT) from Vandenberg Air Force Base, located nearly 130 miles (209 kilometers) northwest of Los Angeles in western coast of the United States.
It's the fourth Minuteman III ICBM launched from Vandenberg this year.
The ICBM, equipped with a single test reentry vehicle nike air max 2017 bianche , traveled approximately 4,200 miles (6,759 kilometers) to the Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands in the Pacific Ocean.
The reentry vehicle contained a telemetry package used for operational testing.
"While not a response to recent North Korean actions nike air max 2017 azzurre blu , the test demonstrates that the United States' nuclear enterprise is safe, secure, effective and ready to be able to deter nike air max 2017 arancio scontate , detect and defend against attacks on the United States and its allies," said the U.S. Air Force Global Strike Command in a statement on its official website.
The U.S. ICBM community, including the Department of Defense nike air max 2017 arancio , the Department of Energy, and U.S. Strategic Command, uses data collected from test launches for continuing force development evaluation.
The ICBM test launch program demonstrates the operational capability of the Minuteman III and ensures the United States' ability to maintain a strong nike air max 2017 saldi online , credible nuclear deterrent as a key element of U.S. national security and the security of U.S. allies and partners, the statement said.
There are about 450 Minuteman III ICBMs in service in the United States. U.S. Air Force Global Strike Command routinely conducts ICBM test launches from Vandenberg to validate the effectiveness, readiness and accuracy of the weapon system.
The latest ICBM test of U.S. Air Force comes amid growing tensions between the United States and Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) nike air max 2017 saldi , only days after a successful test-firing of an intercontinental ballistic missile by DPKR last Friday.
The Missile Defense Agency of the United States successfully test fired an interceptor missile on May 30 which is designed to shoot incoming missile over Pacific from Vandenberg Air Force Base.

SEOUL， July 8 (Xinhua) -- The decision between South Korea and the United States to deploy the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) on Friday triggered various controversies as it causes regional tensions and strong oppositions from people living in candidate sites amid remaining doubts about its military effectiveness.
Military authorities of the two allies jointly made an official announcement earlier in the day to deploy the U.S. missile defense system in the U.S. Forces Korea (USFK)， some two years after the USFK commander took issue with the need for the THAAD deployment on the Korean peninsula.
The two allies claimed that the U.S. interceptors will target the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK)'s nuclear and missile threats alone， not any other third country， but it caused strong backlashes from neighboring countries and deepened worries among politicians about regional tensions.
China's foreign ministry said in a statement Friday that the Chinese side is "strongly dissatisfied with and firmly opposes to" the THAAD deployment in South Korea as the deployment is not conducive to achieving denuclearization on the peninsula and maintaining its peace and stability.
Russia has repeatedly expressed opposition to the deployment， with Alexander Timonin， Russian Ambassador to South Korea， saying in February that the U.S. missile defense system would neither lend any support to peace and stability in Northeast Asia， nor any benefit to resolving nuclear issues on the peninsula.
South Korean politicians said the THAAD deployment will heighten regional tensions， rather than helping resolve the peninsula's nuclear issue. The minor opposition Justice Party said the decision will certainly cause a more dangerous security crisis in the region than the DPRK's missile crisis as it came amid strong oppositions from China and Russia， calling for the withdrawal of the decision.
People's Party， which plays a casting vote between ruling Saenuri Party and main opposition Minju Party， expressed its clear opposition to the THAAD deployment， saying the South Korean government had easefully dealt with China's oppositions. It noted Seoul should have considered more deeply the possible economic effects from the worsening relations with China.
Following the THAAD announcement， shares of South Korean companies which depend heavily on Chinese consumers and travelers for revenue， fell sharply. LG Household & Health Care tumbled 4.5 percent， with leading cosmetics maker Amore Pacific plunging 4.7 percent. Travel agency shares， including Hanatour Service and Modetour Network， also lost ground.
The governing party expressed support for the THAAD deployment， saying it would tackle the DPRK's nuclear and missile threats， including the recent test-launches of Musudan intermediate-range ballistic missiles.
Pyongyang said last month that it had succeeded in test-firing the missile for the first time， threatening U.S. military bases in Guam and Japan as well as in South Korea. The missile， known to be capable of carrying a nuclear warhead， is fired from a mobile launcher， making it.
