Obama Pledges Cuts in Missile Defense, Space, and Nuclear Weapons Programs
February 29, 2008 :: News
A video has surfaced of Presidential candidate Senator Barack Obama talking on his plans for strategic issues such as nuclear weapons and missile defense.
The full text from the video, as released, reads as follows:
Thanks so much for the Caucus4Priorities, for the great work you've been doing. As president, I will end misguided defense policies and stand with Caucus4Priorities in fighting special interests in Washington.
First, I'll stop spending $9 billion a month in Iraq. I'm the only major candidate who opposed this war from the beginning. And as president I will end it.[i.e. not win it]
Second, I will cut tens of billions of dollars in wasteful spending.
I will cut investments in 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.
Third, I will set a goal of a world without nuclear weapons. To seek that goal, I will not develop new nuclear weapons; I will seek a global ban on the production of fissile material; and I will negotiate with Russia to take our ICBMs off hair-trigger alert [they are NOT on "hair-trigger alert" now -etl], and to achieve deep cuts in our nuclear arsenals.
You know where I stand. I've fought for open, ethical and accountable government my entire public life. I don't switch positions or make promises that can't be kept. I don't posture on defense policy and I don't take money from federal lobbyists for powerful defense contractors. As president, my sole priority for defense spending will be protecting the American people. Thanks so much.

2008 Pentagon Report (March 2008):
China's Growing Military Space Power
By Leonard David
Special Correspondent, SPACE.com
March 6, 2008
GOLDEN, Colorado A just-released Pentagon report spotlights a growing U.S. military concern that China is developing a multi- dimensional program to limit or prevent the use of space-based assets by its potential adversaries during times of crisis or conflict.
Furthermore, last year's successful test by China of a direct-ascent, anti-satellite (ASAT) weapon to destroy its own defunct weather satellite, the report adds, underscores that country's expansion from the land, air, and sea dimensions of the traditional battlefield into the space and cyber-space domains.
Although China's commercial space program has utility for non- military research, that capability demonstrates space launch and control know-how that have direct military application. Even the Chang'e 1 the Chinese lunar probe now circling the Moon is flagged in the report as showcasing China's ability "to conduct complicated space maneuvers a capability which has broad implications for military counterspace operations."
To read the entire publication [29.67MB/pdf], see U.S. Dept of Defense:
From the Sino-Russian Joint Statement of April 23, 1997:
"The two sides [China and Russia] shall, in the spirit of partnership, strive to promote the multipolarization of the world and the establishment of a new international order."
That is exactly a crescent and a star.
God help us.
You have GOT to be kidding!!! Crescent moon????? For OUR missile defense?
Dear Lord, please.....
OK RB this is just NFW.
Who is responsible for this BS.
A speechless ping
I am going to share this!
Obama opposed missile defense during the presidential campaign but now uses the system to protect America. ...
At the same time, Biden is crowing about Obama’s success in Iraq.
Republicans Object to Biden Taking Credit for Success in Iraq
The guy is an elitist leftist who fancies himself an “intellectual”. Lefty ‘intellectuals’ haven’t a religious bone in their bodies, unless you consider marxism a religion of sorts. They are only allied with the radical islamic nut jobs in their hatred of the United States. Both want to wipe us off the map.
The previous logo was DEFENSIVE.
The present looks like an attack on Republican (blue)
states using nuclear weapons.
Would not put that past Pres_ _ent Obama or the DNC
for a nanosecond.
I thought this just had to be a hoax, just had to be.
So I went to their home page that you linked, I also double checked that this is the actual home page of MDA and sadly, confirmed what you said. This is indeed their new logo.
It is beyond belief. Ordering NASA to do “outreach to Muslims”, having MDA change their logo from one that shows intercepting an enemy missile to one reminding one of Muslim symbols and Obama campaign logo... it shows Obama’s priorities.
And they don’t include defense or wellbeing of the American people.

If they get more funding as a result of this I really don’t care.

you wont believe this
It is definitely shaped like a crescent and I am at a loss for words. I am truly sad for my country and pray every day for divine intervention to remove this obamanation from office. Someone has to have the goods on this guy and it’s just a matter of time before something is revealed. IMO, his shady use of the re-paid TARP money as his own personal slush fund should be enough to remove him from office.
The description on that page for "Managing Diversity" is the most incomprehensible drivel I've ever read. Behind which lies the worst kind of race-centered, gender-centered, quota-oriented, hiring.
EEO refers to the laws and governing principles that prohibit discrimination on the bases of gender, color, race, religion, pregnancy, national origin, age, disability, and reprisal.
OK. WTF is "reprisal"??
Responsibilities of affirmative employment include collecting and analyzing data on the agency's employment activities and accomplishments. Defense agencies and organizations, including the Missile Defense Agency, are encouraged to periodically review their demographic profiles.
There's your govt. efficiency. Tell me this is not a quota-driven hiring practice. What do they compare this 'data' to? The census maybe? Makes you wonder if this trumps all other qualifications when hiring.
Too bad there's no "Managing Efficiency" philosophy here. wow.
Islamic Crescent with the ‘sickle’.
