US Air Force Launches Secretive X-37B

Yesterday, NASA launched a payload for the US Air Force aboard an Atlas V rocket - the secretive X-37 unmanned space-plane. It seems that this is similar to the Predator drone, except that the X-37 is in space.

After the launch the military went silent and would not further discuss what the craft is/will be doing. I speculate that this may have something to do with reconnaissance on Iran. Whether true or not, Iran likes to take issue at anything it remotely imagines to be a threat. I cannot imagine this launch would be any different.

With Iran flexing their muscles with war games and this launch taking place on the same day - it seems that each nation is flexing their muscles. As we all know, this will all lead to a showdown - with Jerusalem being the center of attention. May Hashem protect us all!
