Wu-14 Designed For Nuclear Strike

The Chinese Communists have conducted their third test of a hypersonic weapon this year – this time seeing the missile reach speeds of Mach 10. The test took place earlier this week.

According to a report by the Washington Free Beacon, the test of the Wu-14 involved the use of a ballistic missile that took the missile to almost 7,700 miles per hour. At that speed, it would travel from New York to Los Angeles in roughly 20 minutes. One analyst noted that while the Wu-14 needs far more testing to become an operational system, the ChiComs are clearly serious about deploying such weapons.

He was getting pressure from his grandmother, with whom he was living, and his probation officer to locate employment.

Eventually, he was hired to work at a company called Bandit Trading. Hopefully, that would be the end of his trouble. The people at the company would buy him meals at McDonald’s, or give him items of clothing, cigarettes, or cash payments of $20–50, depending on what he brought to the store. However, unbeknown to him, the company was a front operated by undercover agents of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (BATFE), and they would proceed to take advantage of the vulnerable Bruner.
