Does the Obama Administration have necessary intelligence to keep our country safe from attack?
The 4th of July’s fireworks in the U.S. could prove to be consequential for our military, world affairs, and life as we know it. North Korea has warned that it anticipates firing another test missile, this one aimed toward the Hawaiian Islands.
“North Korea has taken a consistent anti-Washington line since its creation in 1948, denouncing both the United States and South Korea as a puppet of the U.S. Since the end of the Korean War in 1953 the North has not attacked its neighbor, but to this day keeps large concentrations of troops and artillery focused on Seoul, and has regularly engaged in provocations like kidnappings, submarine incursions and missile tests over the Sea of Japan.” http://topics.nytimes.com/top/news/international/countriesandterritories/northkorea/index.html?scp=1-spot&sq=north%20korea&st=cse
Amazingly, President Obama made the decision to fire an an unarmed Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile configured with a National Nuclear Security Administration test assembly, launched from North Vandenberg yesterday-o6.29.09 at 3:01 a.m. http://www.vandenberg.af.mil/news/story.asp?id=123156457 It launched from the California coast to an area in the Pacific Ocean some 4,200 miles away.
Prior to the launch of the missile that certainly provides proof that North Korea is well with in our range, NK “criticized the U.S. on Monday for positioning missile defense systems around Hawaii, calling the deployment part of a plot to attack the regime and saying it would bolster its nuclear arsenal in retaliation.” and ” “Through the U.S. forces’ clamorous movements, it has been brought to light that the U.S. attempt to launch a pre-emptive strike (emphasis mine) on our republic has become a brutal fact,” the North’s main Rodong Sinmun newspaper said . http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/06/29/AR2009062900307_pf.html
If North Korea was pissed that Defense Secretary Robert Gates ordered the deployment of a ground-based, mobile missile intercept system and radar system to Hawaii before the ICBM launch, imagine what they are thinking now? America and Obama are about to find our who are friends are in the United Nations and New World Order having tested this missile.
North Korea has repeatedly fired short and long range missiles, detonated nuclear bombs, threatened to nuke it’s neighbors, announces it’s going to launch a missile aimed for Hawaii and believes we should not defend ourselves. That America is launching a pre-emptive strike? By launching missiles from Vandenberg, is America the one’s providing the pre-emptive strike? Kudos to Obama or has he lost his marbles? Could he really not care if Hawaii and his original birth certificate gets blown up?
Both Obama and Barney Frank continue to seek a reduction in military spending while we fight: the war on drugs, the war on terror, the war in Afghanistan, the war on immigration, the war for socialism, etc..
Our military budget is not so defunct that our government couldn’t provide about 40 tons of weapons and ammunition to Somalia’s embattled government in the past six weeks to help it fight Islamist insurgents(Reuters). Not liking that one bit, “A spokesman for radical Islamic insurgents says his group will seize weapons the U.S. has supplied to Somalia’s embattled government.” (AP) With props to http://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2009/06/29/small-arms-shipped-to-somalia/#comment-11480 Oh the Pirates of Somalia must be drunk with joy.
Why not just drop million of dollars over the war zones and give everyone an equal chance to steal from America for all the good sending weapons there will do? How many times in U.S. history have we financed and trained foreign armies only to have them retaliate and fire back at U.S. soldiers?
In Iraq where 4000+ American soldiers have died, a public holiday was declared today to celebrate the official withdrawal of American troops from Iraqi cities. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/07/01/world/middleeast/01iraq.html
In the U.S., Michael Jackson continues to dominate the news as we anticipate our own nation’s public holiday, the 4th of July- Independence Day. Need you be reminded, banks will be closed.
Make no mistake, playing with fireworks is dangerous.
Playing with a nuclear North Korea and its leader Kim Jong-il, could be deadly.
