Last night in a now-deleted tweet US Strategic Control or Stratcom posted a very puzzling video where they said The US is prepared to drop something “much, much bigger” than the New Years Eve ball in New York City. The video then goes on to show them dropping what appears to be a nuclear bomb. After deleting the tweet they issued an apology: “Our previous NYE tweet was in poor taste & does not reflect our values. We apologize. We are dedicated to the security of America & allies”.

I hope there is an investigation into this because some heads need to roll. I highly doubt whatever remaining allies we may have found this sick “joke” funny. What in the hell is going on in our government? I’m tired of politicians playing with our safety. My New Years message to them is: It is way past time for Trump to go. Our National Security is at stake. Do your damn job.
HAPPY 2019! Looks like it’s starting with a bang.
I guess this is their idea of ‘fixing’ their misstep…
Our previous NYE tweet was in poor taste & does not reflect our values. We apologize. We are dedicated to the security of America & allies.
