    Last Friday, millions of Americans from Illinois to the Delmarva Peninsula were hit by an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) missile: no lights, no air conditioning, no Internet, no cellphones and no refrigerators for their insulin. Actually, it was a storm called a “derecho,” but its effects were similar to that of an EMP missile. EMP? Look it up. It will horrify you. But then, you think, if it had been an EMP warhead, our homeland missile defense system would have destroyed it — right? Wrong.

    According to a Rasmussen poll conducted in April, 40 percent of American voters believe we have an effective system to shoot down missiles aimed at our homeland. Those voters have been misinformed by the Obama White House. Yes, there is a system with four interceptors at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California and 20 more at Fort Greeley in Alaska. When they work, they are what protect us from North Korean and Chinese missiles. But West Coast interceptors do nothing to defend the U.S. from attacks from the south, nor do they guard the East Coast from the missile-carrying ships that Iran has often threatened to bring close to our shores.

    Nevertheless, in February 2010 the Obama administration released a report claiming that our missile technologies have produced a reliable and robust defense for the United States. Three months later, in May, the non-partisan Arms Control Association said that the report was “nothing more than a fiction.”

    Adding to the failures and smokescreens, President Obama’s 2013 budget slashes $810 million from current missile defense programs, plus a staggering $3.6 billion cut over the next five years.

    Congressman Michael Turner (R-Ohio), chairman of the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Strategic Forces, said in April that the president’s drastic cuts are “consistent with what candidate Obama said in the 2008 campaign — that he doesn’t ‘agree with a missile defense system.’” We just weren’t listening back then.

    But there still is a way to rapidly assemble a defense against missile threats from North Korea, China and the long-range missile base Iran is building in Venezuela. President Obama knows that way, and he is using it to build a real anti-missile defense system. Problem is, he’s building it for Europe, not America. It is called the European Phased Adaptive Approach, with 24 ICBM interceptors in Romania and 24 in Poland. They will be operative in 36 months, after American taxpayers foot the entire enormous cost of President Obama’s latest contribution to the defense of Europe.

    I hope we continue to support our only ally in the middle east. Protecting Israel protects us, IMO.

    Bait? Baiting you into what? The truth? That AIPAC controls our foreign policy?


    Jedwil, it is the other way around... although Israel does not support us. Zionist propaganda, financial and military support to Israel protect Zionist interests, not our interests, and our interests are not mutual.

    And the US is more than capable of defending itself from threats in the middle east. And Israel can also defend itself without help from the US.
