The Military-Industrial Complex Marches On

And good!

MINOT, N.D. — Military and oil industry officials have reached a non-binding agreement to help missile sites and drilling rigs co-exist in northwestern North Dakota.

Col. Marty Whelan, commander of the 91st Space Wing at Minot Air Force Base, said he reached an understanding with Ron Ness, president of the North Dakota Petroleum Council.

It stipulates that oil drillers would stay 400 metres away from the Minuteman III.

That’s an article from the Canadian Press — as you can tell, metre-wise — and interest in the Bakken Formation is high in the prairie provinces. Don’t think any ICBMs come into play.
