Coast to Coast AM host George Noory has turned to Michael Coumatos, a former US Space Command Director in charge of war games and National Security Agency counter-terrorism advisor under Condeleeza Rice, and William Scott, Editor-in-Chief of Aviation Week and Space Technology and a nine-year Air Force veteran who served as aircrew on nuclear sampling missions, to imagine how the first six hours of World War III will play out. The authors take the reader deep inside the top secret facility that houses Americas Strategic Command in Omaha, where our nations military commanders are playing a nuclear war game. They dont know that the war they are gaming has already begun in space. Financed by Iran, a rogue Russian scientist destroys military surveillance and communications satellites with an intense particle beam. Soon the United States will be completely blind, allowing the Iranians to launch a nuclear tipped Sahab 4 missile into the soft underbelly of Europe. Its a race against time. Chock full of the actual technologies and strategies the US will have to use to protect its near-space assets, Space Wars describes a near future nuclear threat that puts us all in the terrorists nuclear sights. In a more quiet time, Space Wars would be an exciting work of fiction. But the United States is at war, and the most frightening thing about Space Wars is that its all too real.
