“”criminal negligence” of Obama’s dismantling and defunding of our missile defense systems.”

True, since Obama knows absolutely NOTHING about the military, much less how to command it.

Thank you. My thoughts exactly.
Newt knows one thing, and one thing only, how to promote Newt. We have a congress full of that kind of person. We don’t need more.

I’m sure there is absolutely no danger at all of this happening, otherwise why would Obama have cancelled our “Laser Defense Shield” /sarcasm ...

I too believe and trust Newt ... And he’s right on this.

Oh, I agree with you on the GB bullsh*t.
Ticked me right off.

But for that, Newt is more of an American than every single democrat infesting the government today, and I would vote for him over them every day of the week, and twice on Sunday.

"...any missile aimed towards the United States that is fired by Iran or North Korea"

Given Newt's earlier description of the threat, I don't understand this. It would appear that those countries could just put a satellite bomb in orbit, then position and explode it later.

I agree. Why don’t we just crucify everyone who has done one thing we don’t like. Then we will have NOBODY to speak out except for bloggers on the internet. Eventually they will go away and then we can live under the rule of the evil Kenyan POS dictator for the rest of our lives.

If one nuke can "destroy America", then no defense is going to work anyway (no defense is 100%).

If Newt can't make his blitherings consistent with reality, is it too much to ask that he at least make them internally consistent with themselves?

LOL. Thank you for providing some clarity. There’s a tendency here sometimes to throw someone under a bus over one issue that the masses might disagree with. Unless we exhume Ronald Reagan and display him like King Tut, we’re just not going to find someone with a 100% favorability rating. Newt’s a smart guy, his ideas should at least be considered. He still makes more sense than anyone on the Dim side.

He should come out and apologize an enumerate each and everything he is apologizing for..from his sexual exploits right before he resigned, to his cozying up with the left, on so many issues.

How can he be trusted?

Nice, that was his campaign promise.

I am wondering if the powers that be have convinced him not to end our missile defense, despite his pledge.

I can agree with cutting down defense spending...no reason for the US Military to be in over 100 countries around the world. But missile defense is crucial, considering all the wackjobs who would lob a nuke at us the second they could.

This is NOT reassuring.

“I think if we has an aberrant missile, one that was headed for Hawaii, that looked like it was headed for Hawaii or something like that, we might consider it,” Gates said. “But I don't think we have any plans to do anything like that at this point.”

I think you are wrong. If we have a defense that is only 90%, and an enemy lunches one rocket, we have a 90% chance of survival.

Up that to 99% and we have a 90% chance of surviving a launch of 10 missiles.

This is better than our odds without any defense by a long shot.

Absolutely!

If we only voted for those who agree with us 100% of the time, then we'd be all be writing in our own names every 2 years.

That's not to say we should reign in our own to stick to conservative principles, but you have to pick your battles.

astounded even me that it was said that we basically could not do anything before they have even done it.

What happened to we’re keeping all options on the table even if we knew we were not to do anything.

Anyone noticed that the old enemies are now acting up since this idiot got in, Russia is building up conventional and nuclear as well,

Nailhead, meet Mister Hammer.

I agree. Probably 50% of the critics on FR now are leftist trolls. The below article link from Andrew Breitbart exposes what is going on with the left and their infiltration of Right Wing sites. As observed on FR in the last several months, no matter which conservative leader is put forward in a article, a host of long knives come out. But, these critics claim to be staunch conservatives and patriots. I suspect most are not, most of the others may be well meaning, but are executing a losing strategy for the battle of our time.

Yeah, TF, I was wondering about that myself when I read the attacks on Newt. It's a sort of reverse demagoguery that would suit liberals. Newt is a remarkably effective spokesman for conservative causes. His support of Sarah Palin against the tide of self-declared intellectuals speaks volumes about where his heart is.

Why is everyone worried about North Korea? They can really launch anything and if their rocket does knock out some computers-we would vaporize North Korea with rockets from a submarine or even an old B-52, Even Obama would be forced to act if we are attacked. The N Koreans are just trying to get some bail out money. Nothing to worry about.
