America’s rude Tax Day wakeup call in Boston shows we need informed and engaged leadership to deal effectively with the Global Jihad that poses an existential threat to America—and all of Western Civilization. We again need leaders who not only understand, but who will speak the uncomfortable truths we don’t wish to hear and mobilize free peoples to stand firm during this perilous time. In short, we need a modern Winston Churchill.
The aftermath of the Boston Marathon terrorist attack suggests that we should heed Sun Tsu’s sage advice and re-evaluate our strategy for dealing with Global Jihadists, our enemy in the new world disorder. We seem not to know either our enemy or ourselves.
The Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD) system is the most versatile missile defense system in the U.S. arsenal, thanks to the Navy Team’s “can do” attitude since its beginning. The Navy team should be given the resources to address our possible need to shoot down satellites carrying nuclear weapons that come at us from over the south pole . . . and soon!
Current efforts to defend against ballistic missiles and satellites that approach North America from over the north pole need to be complemented by defenses that can shoot down satellites carrying nuclear weapons that come at us from over the south pole . . . and soon!
Last week, Americans glued to their TVs watched events unfold after the terrorist bombing at the Boston Marathon finish line. We still don’t know all of the parts of this Jihadi terrorist event, but we need to generalize its lessons to deal with a Global Jihad that poses a truly existential threat to America as we know it.
To counter the threats of the “New World Disorder,” we need to build the very best ballistic missile defenses that our technology permits, as quickly as possible . . . and should not bargain away our right to do so, especially for fleeting diplomatic gains.
Seasoned crews of the Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD) system can help defend against North Korean ballistic missile launches over the South Pole, if provided needed cuing and tracking information.
North Korea and Iran seem joined at the hip, and our Intelligence Community seems confused about North Korea’s proximity to nuclear-armed ballistic missiles. Whatever it is, Iran won’t be far behind. Notwithstanding our leaders’ dubious claims about being prepared for all contingencies, we and our allies, especially Israel, face daunting challenges. Stay tuned . . .
This week, Senior U.S. Officials have stated that our recent missile defense deployments assure that we can shoot down North Koreas ballistic missiles in all contingencies, if they are launched at the U.S. homeland or our troops in the Pacific, e.g., at Guam. But . . . What about one North Korea may actually have been practicing?
