GN’s 2008 Space Conference
April 11-13, 2008
In 2008, the Global Network will hold its 16th Annual Space Organizing Conference and Protest outside this Strategic Command. Hundreds of people from around the world will come to Omaha from April 11 – 13, 2008 to learn first-hand about this military installation that operates in America’s heartland. For the first time, world citizens will gather to shine a light on what StratCom has become.
Located in the heart of the nation, just south of Omaha, Nebraska, the U.S. Strategic Command (StratCom) for years has been the site from which a nuclear war would be controlled. Since 9/11, its mission has expanded to become command central in the U.S.’s “War on Terror” and for the U.S. plans to dominate space militarily.
This “New StratCom” is responsible for overseeing any Global “First Strikes,” the National Security Agency, and Ballistic Missile Defense. Thus, StratCom:
StratCom today is the most dangerous place on the face of the earth. It is secretive. Its mission is destabilizing. It operates outside the law. And its transformation has occurred so quickly, most of the world is completely unaware of its missions and dangers.
As things now stand, the next war the White House initiates will be planned, launched, and directed by StratCom. Building global awareness is essential if we are to get StratCom to back away from the brink.
