The Army’s List of “Domestic Hate Groups”
By Todd Starnes
The following is an email written by a lieutenant colonel at Fort Campbell in Kentucky — advising three dozen subordinates to be on the lookout for soldiers who might be members of “domestic hate groups.”
This email was obtained exclusively by Fox News. Names have been redacted.

“Subject: Domestic “Hate Groups” (UNCLASSIFIED)
Classification: UNCLASSIFIED
Caveats: FOUO
Leaders,
Many events have been taking place across the country – just want to ensure everyone is somewhat educated on some of the groups out there that do not share our Army Values.
When we see behaviors that are inconsistent with Army Values – don’t just walk by – do the right thing and address the concern before it becomes a problem.
We need to make sure that we maintain our standards – starting with reception and integration.
Thanks -”

Anyone know what reception & integration means? We think it means SNAFU.

You have to read the whole thing to believe it. And pls retweet or share!

The National Guard is headed for the Mexican U.S. border.http://www.nationalguard.com/  President Obama in his infinite wisdom or, from reading the Nation’s leading poll’s supporting Arizona’s immigration law( http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/obama_administration/daily_presidential_tracking_poll ) is sending troops.  It is not so obvious that it is for immigration control, as the Mexican Embassy point out that troops will be on guard against the illegal flows of weapons and bulk cash into Mexico, which provide organized crime with its firepower and its ability to corrupt.

In a statement from Embassy of Mexico – http://portal.sre.gob.mx/usa/index.php?option=news&task=viewarticle&sid=297

Regarding the Administration’s decision to send 1,200 National Guard servicemen to the US Southern border, the Government of Mexico trusts that this decision will help to channel additional US resources to enhance efforts to prevent the illegal flows of weapons and bulk cash into Mexico, which provide organized crime with its firepower and its ability to corrupt.

Additionally, the Government of Mexico expects that National Guard personnel will strengthen US operations in the fight against transnational organized crime that operates on both sides of our common border and that it will not, in accordance to its legal obligations, conduct activities directly linked to the enforcement of immigration laws.

Mexico is determined to continue working on its side of the border to enhance the security and well-being of border communities, and to deter and dismantle organized crime and its links to drug trafficking and human smuggling.

As part of our joint strategy in the fight against transnational organized crime, there are actions that our two governments have undertaken together, and there are other measures taken independently by Mexico and by the US within their respective territories. In this regard, the Mexican Government fully respects the sovereign decisions of the US Government, but underscores that joint responsibility must continue to underpin our joint efforts in rolling-back transnational organized crime operating on both sides of the border.

As the commander-in-chief, I believe he is supposed to be in charge of the Nation’s Military, not states National Guard troops.  Others are of the same opinion:

“There is no modern precedent for Congress to direct the president to deploy troops in the manner sought by the Amendment,” National Security Adviser James Jones and Homeland Security and Counterterrorism Adviser John Brennan wrote to Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin (D-Mich.) 

“It represents unwarranted interference with the Commander-in-Chief’s responsibilities to direct the employment of our Armed Forces and thus infringes on the President’s role in the management of the Total Force,” they wrote. Read more: http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0510/37759.html#ixzz0p2l86o32

USARNORTH conducts Homeland Defense and Civil Support operations, and Theater Security Cooperation activities, as the U.S. Northern Command Joint Force Land Component Command and the Army Service Component Command in order to protect the American people and their way of life.

We have U.S. Servicemen and women on active duty on U.S. soil in violation of Posse Comitatus. If we are breaking protocol anyway, why not get it over with and send the military to secure the border with Mexico? “…to protect the American people and their way of life!”

The Joint Task Force Civil Service mission statement, http://www.jtfcs.northcom.mil/  reads:

JTF-CS anticipates, plans and integrates USNORTHCOM chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and high-yield explosive (CBRNE) consequence management operations, and when directed, establishes command and control of DOD forces in response to a CBRNE incident to assist local authorities in saving lives, preventing further injury and providing temporary critical support.

As much as I am against active duty troops on our soil, if they are going to be here, then utilize them here.  Don’t wait for another terrorist act to occur.  Post 9-11, the security of our nation remains at risk.  JTF-CS if so ordered would restore at least some sanity to our border, while of course pissing Mexico off.  Tough.  Rumor has it that there are plenty of Russian troops on U.S Soil, perhaps they’d lend a hand too. http://www.resistnet.com/forum/topics/alert-russian-troops-in-us-for

Our borders are being overwhelmed by Mexican people crossing into the greatest country on earth, illegally.  We are fighting wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.  North Korea and South Korea are playing a deadly game of tit for tat, and China’ aggression towards the U.S. has been pretty clear while it remains our largest debt holder.  Oil is spilling by thousand’s of gallons every day. 

Where is our commander-in-chief?

Obama will travel from Washington to Chicago on Thursday for a long weekend with his family, as planned. From there, he will go to Louisiana on Friday and return to Chicago that evening. http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5hIfwUDeBxbANKX2GATS6YOiMTnJQD9FU1EK00  excellent commentary on the President’s movement and decisions can be found at http://thisweekwithbarackobama.blogspot.com/.  The President’s minute by minute location also with commentary can be found at http://www.politico.com/politico44/

Besides the multiple crisis we are battling, this weekend is Memorial Day, the day we honor our nation’s dead military personnel.  The president previously confused Memorial Day with Veteran’s Day. “Someone might want to explain to the President that it is a little difficult to say “thank you” or send care packages to the deceased.” http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2257872/posts 

On Monday, Obama is scheduled to participate in a Memorial Day ceremony at Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery in Elwood, Ill.   In Obama’s absence, Vice President Joe Biden will participate in the customary wreath-laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery outside Washington. 

Obama will however make it back to Washington in time next week to honor Paul McCartney, who has sacrificed so much for the freedoms we enjoy notes Michelle Malkin. http://michellemalkin.com/2010/05/25/ap-obama-to-skip-arlington-memorial/

Obama may be President, even though he still has not provided a birth certificate proving he is eligible. Still, it is pretty un-American for The President to not lay the traditional wreath at Arlington Cemetary.  What can you expect from the man who couldn’t bother to put his hand on his heart during  The Pledge of Allegiance?

A vial containing less than 1 milliliter of mustard agent is prepared for analysis

The Umatilla Chemical Depot in Oregon has had yet another leak of a chemical mustard agent. 

You should need no reminder that it was Saddam Hussein’s regime that used a mustard agent against the Kurds in Iraq.  The United States, who, at the time- 1988, were allies of Iraq in their war with Iran, turned a blind eye to the atrocity and said the images could not be verified to be the responsibility of Iraq.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halabja_poison_gas_attack.  Could it have been none other than Donald Rumsfeld as Reagan’s envoy who turned a blind eye? For more on. “Halabja, the massacre the West tried to ignore.”  http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/iraq/article6991512.ece  January 18, 2010.

The Chemical Demilitarization Program’s mission is defined, “To protect people and the environment by overseeing the safe destruction of the chemical agents at the Umatilla Chemical Depot as soon as possible.”  http://www.deq.state.or.us/Umatilla/cdp.htm  “As soon as possible?”  Safe? For more than ten years there have been admitted exposures, leaks, and spills at Umatilla.  

The Umatilla Chemical Agent Disposal Facility (UMCDF) is headed by the U.S. Army Program Manager for Chemical Demilitarization (PMCD) and is operated under contract by Washington (formerly Raytheon) Demilitarization Company. Washington is responsible for the construction and operation of the UMCDF. Along with UMCD, both PMCD and Washington Demilitarization Company (WDC) are Permittees named in the UMCDF Hazardous Waste Permit. http://www.deq.state.or.us/Umatilla/cdp.htm

The chemical warfare agents VX and GB (nerve agents) and HD (blister, or “mustard” agent) are stored as liquid in various types of munitions and containers, including rockets, bombs, projectiles, mines, bulk containers, and aerial spray tanks. The chemical weapons stored at the UMCD represent approximately 12% of the United States’ original chemical weapons stockpile.

 

Located near  Hermiston, Oregon, “The facility had stopped work in late October because vats of mustard agent were boiling over. Now depot officials say they think they’ve fixed that issue.” http://news.opb.org/article/6598-umatilla-chemical-depot-resumes-burning-mustard-agent/ 

They were wrong. The official press release is at http://www.csepp.net/pressreleases/10Releases/10Jan27_nr%20trace%20of%20mustard%20chemical%20agent%20detected%20today-27Dec2010-1.pdf.

On January 27, 2010, thinking things were in order, via http://www.tri-cityherald.com/yahoonews/story/879396.html  another leak of blister agent was discovered.   Workers at the Umatilla Chemical Depot yesterday found another mustard agent leak in one of its igloo storage units, the sixth such leak detected at the Oregon facility in three months.

Umatilla generally experiences more leaks in the summer, when containers holding the deadly blister agent tend to thaw. The igloos where the mustard containers are stored are fitted with air filters that prevent any dangerous fumes from escaping.  Yesterday’s leak did not threaten the surrounding public or environment, according to depot officials.

Yes, of course everything is contained, we are so reassured!  If they know in advance that Umatilla generally experiences more leaks when it is warm, why wouldn’t The Washington Demilitarization Company, which is really URS, which is really Black Stone turn on the air conditioning in the storage areas? A passive filtration system- but no climate control?  The storage units are underground. Could they potentially be leaking into an aquifer that occupies a roughly rectangular area of 19,728 acres?

Raytheon holds a patent http://www.patentstorm.us/patents/6516008/description.html  for a wavelength conversion system that uses lasers to detect mustard gas but can not be bothered with figured out a better way to prevent these leak incidents?  There are also connections from The Center of Public Integrity linking Washington Group International’s leadership roster to read like a Who’s Who of the government contracting business. http://projects.publicintegrity.org/wow/bio.aspx?act=pro&ddlC=65

Other leaks are reported on Dec 16, 2009 http://gsn.nti.org/gsn/nw_20091216_8107.php and six more in 2009 at http://gsn.nti.org/gsn/nw_20090728_8099.php

The U.S. Military put a spin on the hazards of reducing chemical stockpiles in this article just days after the Umatilla incident, “ U.S. gains momentum destroying chemical weapon stockpiles.” on February 2, 2010 http://www.army.mil/-news/2010/02/04/33978-us-gains-momentum-destroying-chemical-weapon-stockpiles/

The U.S. arsenal — which used to include 31,500 tons of chemical weapons such as Sarin, VX and Mustard agents– is systematically being destroyed at an increased pace, Mahall said.

“It is a tremendous success story. Not only is the U.S doing all it can to meet its international commitments, but more importantly the Chemical Materials Agency is contributing to the national security of the United States in the process. These weapons in the wrong hands can do harm. They are safely and securely storing and destroying them while providing maximum protection to the public and environment,” said Carmen Spencer, deputy assistant Secretary of the Army (Elimination of Chemical Weapons).

“As of 26 January, 2010, the U.S. has destroyed a 22,322 tons of the original 31,500 tons,” said Greg Mahall, chief of Public Affairs for the U.S. Army Chemical Materials Agency (CMA)….In addition to the weapons stored on Johnston Atoll in the Pacific, chemical weapons stockpiles were dispersed among eight locations within in the continental U.S. at Army facilities in Anniston, Ala., Pine Bluff, Ark., Tooele, Utah, Umatilla, Ore., Aberdeen, Md., Newport, Ind., Blue Grass, Ky., and Pueblo, Colo.

A tremendous success story? Who manufactured 31,500 tons of chemical weapons in the first place?

A Umatilla Chemical Depot employee stands in front of a storage igloo. Safely stored inside this igloo are munitions containing the nerve agent sarin. Storage igloos are built with cement and steel rebar. The igloos are then covered with dirt, keeping the inside temperature at 50-60 degrees Fahrenheit year round, helping to maintain safe storage conditions

It was not inadvertent that he military failed to mention the leaks at Umatilla, or that they forgot completely about a mustard leak at  U.S. Army Pueblo Chemical Depot in November 2009.    http://www.cma.army.mil/fndocumentviewer.aspx?docid=003681816  Nor did they mention the numerous lawsuits that have been filed in attempts to stop burning mustard gas. http://www.whistleblower.org/template/page.cfm?page_id=164

Nor did they mention the working conditions where, “URS EG&G — the contractor in charge of incinerating chemical weapons — appears ready to settle a long-running dispute over payment for putting on and removing safety gear, and irregular meal and rest breaks.” http://www.nwlaborpress.org/2009/1120/11-20-09IUOE.html

Nor did they mention the Wall Street Journal article from July 30, 2000,  Arms Plant Workers Contend Army Covered Up Gas Leaks. http://www.nytimes.com/2000/07/30/us/arms-plant-workers-contend-army-covered-up-gas-leaks.html?pagewanted=1

A group of workers who were overcome last year by fumes at a chemical weapons plant in Oregon is accusing the Army of covering up leaks of highly toxic nerve agents and mustard gas on the day of the incident.  Lawyers for the workers at the Umatilla Chemical Depot charge that investigators from the Army and Raytheon, a defense contractor, concealed four leaks of sarin and mustard gas that occurred just hours after 34 workers became ill on Sept. 15.

The lawyers, citing Army documents obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, also said chemical agents had leaked at the site 22 times during a six-day period, including the day the workers were sickened. The depot is near Hermiston, in eastern Oregon.

After ten years of a checkered past, The Umatilla Disposal Facility is finally about to undergo some critical evaluations.

“Beginning next week, staff from the U.S. Army Chemical Materials Agency (CMA) will be on the installation to conduct a Site Assistance Visit (SAV). The intent of the SAV, conducted at the request of the depot commander, is to provide an independent review and assessment of all or a portion of the chemical surety program, and to provide assistance in interpreting surety requirements and correcting problem areas. via http://www.cma.army.mil/fndocumentviewer.aspx?docid=003682334

The Army is sending staff?  Wonder if  that includes deputy assistant Secretary of the Army, Carmen Spencer? 

We’re all for creating a safer tomorrow, it’s another Mustard leak today that we worry about.

Mercedes Benz Military Vehicles are apparently headed to Camp Pendleton? 

Mercedes-Gclass-6x6-1

The Mercedes Bens G-Class was born initially as a military vehicle based on an order from the Shah of Persia back in 1970. And it just happened to become a civilian vehicle a decade later. But no matter what clothes it wears, it looks and works just right wherever it goes. Now though it’s going back to its roots by this fabulous 6×6 version made for the Australian army.

Three-axeled 6.5 tons monster, designed to accommodate up to 9 passengers with heavy luggage, the perfect tool for missions including unit transportation. The other half are long wheelbase 461 series with a huge cargo area which is 3.2 meters long and can carry stuffs up to nine tons. Mercedes G-Class 6×6 is painted in sand beige and looks truly striking.http://www.motorward.com/2009/06/mercedes-gclass-6×6-for-australian-army/  They are also referred to as Gelandewagen and similar vehicles can be found at http://www.army-technology.com/contractors/vehicles/mercedes-benz/.

Why are these “striking,” similar looking vehicles travelling down America’s highways.  Martial Law? Pandemic Emergency Preparedness? Government Requisition? Foreign Army Transport? NLE Practice?

“With GM’s restructuring complete,Steven Rattner, whose leadership and vision were invaluable to the Auto Task Force’s efforts, has decided to transition back to private life and his family in New York City….Ron Bloom will assume leadership of the Task Force’s activities as the government transitions its role away from day-to-day restructuring to monitoring this vital industry and protecting the substantial investment the American taxpayers have made in GM, Chrysler, and GMAC.” http://michellemalkin.com/2009/07/13/alert-car-czar-steven-chooch-rattner-is-leaving/

“There is no checking with the government,” he[sic Bloom]  said in relation to company leaders’ approach to running the businesses. Board members will not need to “look back” over their shoulder to make sure the government is approving all decision making, he said….The Treasury Department has committed over $60 billion in direct assistance to GM and Chrysler. Tens of billions more have been committed to Delphi Corp., GMAC LLC and suppliers.The Department of Energy has committed $25 billion in funding for auto makers to retool factories in order to develop and build fuel-efficient cars.”http://online.wsj.com/article/SB124873753926785139.html

In 1974, after a series of scandalous take-downs of pension and retirement funds during the Nixon era, Congress passed the Employee Retirement Income Security Act.  ERISA says you can’t seize workers’ pension funds (whether monthly payments or health insurance) any more than you can seize their private bank accounts.  And that’s because they are the same thing:  workers give up wages in return for retirement benefits. http://www.alternet.org/workplace/140441/how_obama’s_’car_czar’_steve_rattner_is_bankrupting_gm/  Well, looks like you can under President Obama.

Somebody, some frigging place ought to look over our tax dollars and tell me why there is a Mercedes Benz Military Vehicle on a car hauler heading from South Carolina to California.  WTF?  Billions in auto bailouts and someone has the fucking audacity to order a fucking Mercedes Military Vehicle? Are they even U.S. Military?  From Delphi to GM people are loosing pensions- blatantly breaking laws, while our Constitutional lawyer President Obama makes statements about racial profiling.  X-CUSE Me but I think people looked blindly past your skin color when they voted expecting better than this. 

Maybe these vehicles have something to do with the upcoming NLE 09 exercises.  Yeah, that makes me feel all warm inside. 

I thought “This land is your land, this land is my land…”.words and music by Woody Guthrie

“In the squares of the city – In the shadow of the steeple
Near the relief office – I see my people
And some are grumblin’ and some are wonderin’
If this land’s still made for you and me.”  http://www.arlo.net/resources/lyrics/this-land.shtml

This week in History on Sat., July 28, 1945In a ringing declaration indicating that America’s pre-World War II isolation was truly at an end, the U.S. Senate approves the charter establishing the United Nations.

If you are sitting down, “”Millions of men, women and children have died because nations took to the naked sword instead of the conference table to settle their differences.” The U.N. charter would provide the “foundation and cornerstone on which the international organization to keep the peace will be built.”  from This Day in Military History http://tdiumh.blogspot.com/2005/07/july-28.html

Keep the peace indeed–now get those Mercedes Military Vehicles off of my U.S. Taxpayer paid roads, built upon U.S. Soil with American blood, sweat and tears. 

Buy American, it is the very least you can do.

Black, White, Yellow, or any other shade of peoples, Americans must believe in Red, White and Blue on Election Day.  The world looks to America for leadership and stability and when we deviate in our path of Democracy and fair elections, we subject ourselves to further erosion of our power to the world.  America and it’s allies helped allow for the first voting in 50 years in Iraq with the means of dipping a finger into purple ink, it is not so easy to identify a voter in America, nor should it be.  There is a whole variety of problems that we can anticipate.  In early voting, usually in favor of Democratic Candidates, we have already seen challenges at the polls.  On Election Day, indeed we may have voting machine manipulation and malfunction, polling places that run out of paper, long lines, and a potential that precincts could be overwhelmed by an outpouring of voters.  Just imagine in Chicago, if the turnout is so massive with 8 hour waits and not every voter gets to vote, what kind of voter unrest could occur?
 
Only last year, with the results from Kenya’s closely contested elections still up in the air and evidence growing of election mischief, riots and ethnic clashes erupted across the country. Kenya is east Africa’s most stable and prosperous democracy but rioting killed hundreds after the election. Raila Odinga, who was leading in the polls prior to the election was the candidate Obama had been campaigning for but he lost his election to Mwai Kibaki. All the more reason that Obama’s lack of interference in his Aunt Zeituni’s plea for US Asylum seems suspect.
 
When Main Stream Media, CBS News, brings out a blog post just two days before the election that is titled “Police Prepare For Possible Election Night Riots,” and the lead in question asks, ” Will election night bring civil Unrest?”  maybe we had better pay attention.  http://www.cbsnews.com/blogs/2008/10/22/politics/horserace/entry4539330.shtml 

In Chicago, Obama is holding a rally downtown after the polls close on Tuesday night and Mayor Daley believes that up to a million people could flood the city’s streets. All police leave has been canceled and off-duty firefighters have been told to keep their kit ready at home. http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/politics/obama/chi-obama-rally-qanov02,0,5894064.story   In Augusta, Georgia reports are of Officers Gearing up with riot training http://chronicle.augusta.com/stories/102808/met_481157.shtml while Detroit and Los Angeles were also deploying extra police out of concern for the potentially heightened emotions raised by this election.

This historic presidential contest will feature either America’s first black President or first female Vice President. Iraqi’s went to the polls in the face of real threats, I don’t think Americans will.  Clearly though, the unspoken concern among some is that a surprise Obama loss could lead to suspicion of foul play and violence could ensue in cities with large “black populations based on previous riots in urban areas.”  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Riot.  “So let me get this straight: No matter what happens, we should expect blacks to riot. If this isn’t racist, then call me David Duke in a sundress.”  http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,443958,00.html

We’ve seen “emergency-preparedness” steps taken in Denver before the DNC and at every campaign rally Obama and McCain have attended and nothing major has happened.  We’ve  prepared for Y2K and nothing happened.  In case all hell breaks loose, we will be duly prepared in major cities and do not forget that the Army’s Brigade Homeland Tour of U.S. Combat troops have been repatriated from Iraq to help with any civil unrest.  

The Army force on active duty on U.S. Soil operates under U.S. Norther Commands Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, high Yeild Explosives unit (CBRNE)- The Consequence Management Response Force or CCMRF is commonly referred to as “sea-smurf”. http://www.armytimes.com/news/2008/09/army_homeland_090708w/ The force was fully activated October 1st, 2008 in a response to the controversial John Warner Defense Appropriations Act http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=h109-5122.  The title of the law the “Insurrection Act” has been renamed, “Enforcement of Laws to Restore Public Order”  http://www.bordc.org/threats/hr5122.php giving power to the President to invoke martial law.  Public Law 109-364, (H.R.5122) http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=viewArticle&code=MOR20061029&articleId=3618.  Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 “the power of the country” prohibited a president from using the military for police actions in the United States until now.  https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2008/10/01/posse-comitatus-act/  Way, way and I mean way, on the fringe is the theory that Delta Forces and Sea-Smurf will operate like Hitler’s SS Gestapo at the start of German socialism. 

.S. Army Field Manual 19-15, Civil Disturbances, 1985, is the current doctrinal reference on civil disturbances. Most tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTP) addressed in this manual were developed from experiences gained during domestic riots in the 1960s. There is no Army doctrine on the use of non-lethal weapons and munitions. http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/library/report/call/call_00-7_ch1.htm.  Some rioters have become quite sophisticated at understanding and withstanding the tactics used by police.  Manuals for successful rioting are available on the Internet and encourage rioters to get the press involved, as there is more safety with the cameras rolling.  The National Lawyers Guild has produced a 31 page document called “Legal Observer Training Manual. http://www.nlg.org/resources/LO_Manual.pdf 

President Roosevelt once said, “In politics there are no accidents.  If it happens you can bet it was planned that way.” I hardly think people will take to the streets, nor will the service of the Army, The National Guard, or riot troops be necessary.  We are a patient people and have endured two years of campaigning with no unrest.  Election Day occurs on a school and work night with honest to God people who have to get up and go to work, and many of McCain supporters will be sleeping well before the results are in.   No matter who wins, I believe in widespread respect for the law and while I encourage you to vote McCain, my prediction is that nothing will happen.  That’s my theory anyways.

God Bless America.

Russia is modernizing its missiles in response to US plans; while Obama in his own words says ” I will cut investments in Defense priorities, unproven missile defense systems. I will not weaponize space.  I will slow our development of future combat systems.   And I will institute an independent “Defense Priorities Board” to ensure that the Quadrennial Defense Review is not used to justify unnecessary spending.” http://missilethreat.com/archives/id.7086/detail.asp   There is also a you tube video but embedding has been disabled by Obama for America. 

MOSCOW (AP) Oct 22-2008– Russia’s efforts to upgrade its missile arsenals will help counter the planned U.S. missile defense sites in Europe, a top general said Wednesday.  Russia’s Strategic Missile Force chief, Col.-Gen. Nikolai Solovtsov, said the military will commission a new type of intercontinental ballistic missile and modify the existing missiles. Russia has denounced a U.S. plan to deploy a battery of 10 missile interceptors in Poland and a related missile defense radar in the Czech Republic, saying it threatened Russian security. It has dismissed the U.S. claim that the sites were intended to counter a prospective missile threat from Iran and was not aimed against Russia.  http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20081022/ap_on_re_eu/eu_russia_missiles

 http://missilethreat.com/missilesoftheworld/  Countries almost from A-Z have ballistic missiles, from Argentina to Turkey and of course, the United States but Russian officials have threatened to point nuclear missiles at the countries that will allow U.S. missile defense sites on their territory.     May 16, 2008 “President Dmitry Medvedev made his debut as the commander in chief of Russia’s armed forces Thursday, touring a missile base and promising to provide the funding needed for nuclear forces to counter global threats.” http://www.1913intel.com/tag/missile-base/  Russia is ramping up its nuclear forces and Obama wants to reduce funding and encourage Russia to do the same saying that if they negotiate, we won’t have sanctions against them .  Russia does not need the United States.

Under President George Bush deployment of missile defense assets in significant numbers has already begun.  The are already in the ground in Alaska and California and at sea, additional Aegis ships and interceptors have been added, with plans calling for 40 SM-3 interceptors deployed aboard 16 Aegis ships.  Improvements to the command, control, battle management and communications system are being fielded, as well as significant additional radar and communications assets.  From The Army Times http://www.armytimes.com/community/opinion/navy_opinion_missiledefense_070625/Testing is a subject of considerable concern among friends and foes of missile defense. After restructuring its test program in 2005, the MDA had an impressive 13-for-14 record of successful flight tests in 2006. These tests included an Aegis SM-3 intercept of a separating warhead; a Terminal High-Altitude Area Defense missile intercept of a unitary target; and, for the first time, an intercept of a threat-representative target with an operational ground-based interceptor using data from an operational early-warning radar along a likely threat trajectory.  As recently as August 2008, the Army reported http://www.armytimes.com/news/2008/08/defense_thaad_081208/ Traveling thousands of meters per second, a 20-foot Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) interceptor missile destroyed an advanced, separating warhead dummy target just beneath the 60-mile envelope of the Earth’s atmosphere off the cost of Hawaii during a June test at the Pacific Missile Range Facility, Kauai.  The test intercept marked the first time the THAAD and Aegis radar systems worked together in a tactical scenario against a separating warhead, Missile Defense Agency officials said” 

According to Obama, missile defense is unproven?  13 out of 14 tests were successful hits! 

Alaska, home to VP Sarah Palin has three Army Posts Fort Richardson, Fort Wainright and Fort Greely .Army’s Alaska Installation Guide http://mags.aqppublishing.com/showmag.php?mid=srrdr&spid=-2#/page2/ can be found here  and it resembles more of welcome to Alaska Welcome Wagon Publication thatn a Military publication.  The main website http://www.greely.army.mil/sites/local/  Sarah Palin as Governor of Alaska is pretty well versed whith what is going on in her state and its relationships between the Armed Forces Group of IMCOM- Installation Management Command and SMDC, Space Missile Defense Command out of Colorado Springs, CO.  I have to believe she has more knowledge than That One, who as a Senator is doubtful to have ever even set foot in Alaska unless it was a fishing trip.

http://www.mda.mil/mdalink/pdf/thirdsite.pdf  list the highlights of the 6th Annual Missile Defense Conference headed by Lt. General Trey Obering, USAF Director on March 31st of 2008.  If Obama gets elected rather than fund Missile Defense, Obama according to his own website on page 12,  Enhance Military to Military Cooperation, Particularly in the Muslim World.  No wonder all of Asia want him to be elected.  http://www.barackobama.com/pdf/Defense_Fact_Sheet_FINAL.pdf

http://mags.aqppublishing.com/showmag.php?mid=srrdr&spid=-2#/page2/  Missile defense seems a fairly reliable, deployable asset in keeping America safe and yet Senator Obama is full of promises to sit down and talk with anyone willingly- with absolutely no preconceived notions that a country could have ulterior motives.  Azerbaijani mentioned he’d like to wipe Israel off the map and. “Ever since the 1991 Gulf War, Syria, Iran, Egypt and Iraq have been struggling to build offensive missile capability in the face of Israel’s growing nuclear arsenal. Israel is estimated to have as many as 400 atomic and hydrogen weapons. The Israeli Air Force has three squadrons equipped with Jericho nuclear-tipped missiles at the Sedot Mikha base, 45 km south of Tel-Aviv. They can reach all major Arab cities, Iran, and Russia. Israel also has a large number of gravity nuclear weapons, possibly including neutron bombs.  http://www.twf.org/News/Y1997/IsraelMissile.html  America also has a base on Isreali soil thanks to an agreement with President Bush.  

“The campaigns are sparring over comments by Rev. Jesse Jackson arguing that Barack Obama’s foreign policy will mean an end to “decades of putting Israel’s interests first.” According to a report in the NY Post today, Jackson told an audience at the World Policy Forum in Evian, France last week that the  “Zionists who have controlled American policy for decades” will lose influence under an Obama administration.  “Obama is about change,” Jackson added. “And the change that Obama promises is not limited to what we do in America itself. It is a change of the way America looks at the world and its place in it.” http://embeds.blogs.foxnews.com/2008/10/14/jackson-zionists-will-lose-influence-under-obama/
