We relaunch an article published on the Defense One site, very close to the US Department of Defense (Pentagon), which wants to stimulate the American production of missiles as powerful JASSM according to a strategy so dear to the warmongers of the Weapons Lobby.

The JASSM ER (Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile–Extended Range aka AGM-158 by Lokeed Martin, the company where worked as advisor the actual Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin) is a stealthy cruise missile intended to be used against high-value or highly-defended targets, such as command-and-control centres, communications hubs or surface-to-air missile batteries. The weapon is qualified for use on the Boeing B-1B supersonic bomber, Northrop Grumman B-21 stealth bomber and Boeing B-52 strategic bomber.
