Skip to comments.Aloha, 'star wars': Obama bluffs on defending Hawaii
Posted on 06/28/2009 10:01:14 PM PDT by Abakumov
The Obama administration seized headlines June 18 when the Defense Department stated that the United States would deploy ground- and sea-based missile-defense assets to protect Hawaii. This was a response to North Korea's threat to launch a long-range missile on July 4 toward the islands. However, new information suggests that the administration is bluffing and our defenses are inadequate to get the job done.

So how would a 49 star flag look anyway?
Of course our defenses (star wars) are inadequate to protect Hawaii or Alaska or anybody else from N.Korea gone mad.
Zero’s Marxist predecessors have managed to slow its development down over the years and HE WANTS missile defense ENDED ANYWAY.
It’s another version of what the Dems like to call “The Securing of America” under their madness. Similar to the Cap and Tax us into oblivion economically and “security” act that 244 House Dems and 8 Traitor Repubs just passed.....ironically on the same day Michael We are the World Jackson died.
Obama has no intention of defending the United States against any enemy - foreign or domestic.
Seriesly. Nobody truly believes North Korea will fire a missile upon Hawaii.
I know, I know, I know. Nobody truly believed Hitler would invade Poland or Japan would bomb Pearl Harbor but, c'mon, those countries actually had war-making capabilities.
Kim Jung Mentally-Il has no such capabilities. He has one bullet. Ubama would HAVE to respond overwhelmingly.
Anybody with me?
Obama Wan Nairobi strikes again!
It’s in his “agreement” isn’t it? Oh, wait, he screwed up the presidential oath at the inauguration and had to do it over again....behind closed doors. God knows what he swore to.
The Coward in Chief couldn’t defend his daughter’s swingset from neighborhood bullies.
If the PRK manages to convert the beautiful Hawaiian Islands into mounds of glowing green glass, then the COLB argument becomes moot.
Would you defend Hawaii? What better way to hide the evidence?
Kenyans take note. You better hide your evidence, or there could be a similar “accident” in your vicinity.
Wanna bet your life on that presumption? Personally, I believe that the First Thug was celebrating in kindred spirit with the Palestinian Animals on 09.11.2001.
Therefore, he has no interest in defending America; he's more interested in becoming King of the World. Remember, he flubbed his Oath Of Office back on 1/20/09.
Daughters’. Both. He couldn’t defend Michelle’s vegetable garden from bunnies.
I can’t put my words of disgust together.
“Justification for the cuts was led by Rep. Ellen O. Tauscher, California Democrat, who is the newly confirmed undersecretary of state for arms control and international security. Ms. Tauscher will play a major role in missile-defense policy.”
Send in the clowns
By the time Menatlly-Il has a missile capable of reaching California we will know whether or not Ubama will respond based on what happens in Hawaii so my life is not immediately in danger.

That may very well be but if NK lobs a missile at Hawaii and Ubama doesn't respond. There is absolutely, positively no way he remains Pres--ent.
Which means we get Biden, but still....
Would you defend Hawaii? What better way to hide the evidence?
That's actually a very interesting point!
Barrack Hussein Obama = The Neville Chamberlain of our time!
This 0 is a traitor and enemy of the USA.
I think the greater question is.. what would happen to a president, that knew of a clear and present danger, not doing everything he could to protect this country?
If he's a DemocRAT he gets re-elected. But not to respond after an attack is simply unthinkable.
Holy cats. Has it only been 5 months???
The list, ping
Has Pres—ent Ubama ordered the Concern-O-Meter to Level Mauve yet?
That isn't to say they couldn't hit Hawaii if they got lucky, managed to squeeze another 10% out of a maximum range that is already mostly speculation, or...or if they got help. Not from the Iranians, who rival them in terms of incompetence, but from the Chinese or Russians, for whom this is a long-stolen technology.
Our own technology is also being hindered by political incompetence of the first order; fortunately it's advanced enough as it is to perhaps survive four years of Idiocy On The Potomac. It will NOT knock out a ballistic missile plummeting at Mach 23.
So the issue is, whose incompetence will triumph? Here's a clue:
The Obama administration's hostility to missile defense is inexplicable.
Not in the least inexplicable. They're caught in a particularly stupid posture that everything without exception that their predecessor did was wrong, and have adjusted their efforts in the two areas of their own supreme incompetence - defense and foreign policy - to reflect a child's fantasy that the opposite of an imaginary boogie-man isn't a real one. But he is, real.
Our best hope is that Kimmie is more incompetent than 0bama, which is a tall order but I think he can do it. We've come a long way from the time that "simpleton" Reagan ended the arms race by winning it.
Maybe, at least part way. The Norks are showmen, albeit as low grade street theater. A lot of this stuff they're doing is just chest thumping to get more “treats” from those that can be shaken down. Well, it worked in the past with the Clinton/Albright circus. Why not with the Obama/Clinton rerun?
They don't have to actually drop a nuke on HI. All they have to do is get one of their missiles to hold together long enough, and put the warhead (probably concrete ballast) into the general vicinity of the islands. It's all just a demonstration anyway. If they can pop an underground nuke (even if it's a “lab device” that couldn't be launched), at about the same time they deliver an inert warhead into the region they've got a bit more street cred than they had before
The US will quite likely cough up some fuel and food to buy them off for a bit longer, and it'll probably work....for a while.
I'm just telling you what I think is going to happen. Personally, my opinion is that it's best to ignore them entirely so that there's no reinforcement of their sociopathic behavior. If they actually did load a nuke on the missile, and really got close enough to do some damage (wouldn't be much given their low yields), the nuclear response would knock them back further than the primitive state they exist in now. Do you suppose anyone over there would notice?
God bless the US Navy ... eye of the tiger, guys and gals!
Are you hearing any military-type scuttlebutt?
Bombing N. Korea to The Stone Age would represent a move FORWARD in time.
Nancy and Harry would throw a party for Zero.
“So how would a 49 star flag look anyway?”
We’ve already had a 49 star flag, when Alaska (Go Sarah) was admitted to the Union.
It would consist of 7 rows with 7 stars.
BTW, I understand your rhetorical question, and it’s implications, but Obama will not defend our (former) country.
He's not our CIC. He's a pantywaist usurper occupying the "office" of the President. The rest of the dictators in the world have figured that out. They will be happy to strike at the U.S. with the firm knowledge that Zero is impotent to deal with them.
Anyone who believes Obama will defend America has poi for brains anyway.
Conspiracy Theory for Today:
The Usurper wants the NKs to launch on Hawai’i. He further wants them to succeed.
He will claim that all our anti-missile efforts failed, that no more money should be spent on advanced military systems and, at the same time, the conflagration will destroy a nasty little piece of incriminating evidence that’s locked away in Hawai’i’s official records.
“Birth Certificate lost in nuclear explosion” beats “The dog ate my homework” everytime.
Great ... ! Prayers for our awesome military,
sworn to protect the USA from enemies from
without and WITHIN! If you catch any new info,
please ping me ... thank you, salty sleuth .. ;)
He could also point out that a nuclear explosion has a small carbon footprint. Just trying to help.
Scares the hell out of me! My son is moving to Hawaii to his new Navy base on July 3. Just the threat of a missle strike on Hawaii should have been meet with an extreme response, a “go ahead make my day” response. I will hold Obama and the Obamabots resposible.
Where are the other eight stars?
FWIW, COBRA DANE, (1 MW average power, 95’ diameter apeture) in the western Aleutians, does a pretty fair job of surveillance on approachs from Korea to mainland Alaska, where there is an interceptor farm in Fort Greeley, near Fairbanks. (Some “vacations”).
There’s nothing comparable in Hawaii.
If he is a Democrat, nothing. The propganda machine, a/k/a the mainstream media will cpver for him. A Republican that does that is a horse of a different color.
He didn’t flub it, Roberts flubbed the recital. Zero can’t string an intelligent sentence together without the TOTUS and at the Oath, Roberts was simply a standin for it. If I had been in Zero’s position, I would have been practicing the entire oath for weeks just to make sure it didn’t get screwed up even if the Chief Justice managed to do it.
If the New York Times had published a similar article during the previous administration, I would be angry — upset about it spilling yet another Gov’t secret.
But this is the equivalent of pulling O’s pants down, and he needs it bigtime. How many times has he talked of shutting off money for ‘advanced weapons systems that don’t work’? How have the Dems in Congress railed against defense spending when the money could be ‘better spent in this country, providing healthcare for the poor’??
Your mouth is bigger than your a**hole, and you’ve been exposed, Obama. NOBODY WITH EVEN HALF A BRAIN BELIEVES A WORD YOU SAY!
I suppose your dad can beat up my dad, too, eh?
Gates is O’s tool.
Nobody thought 9/11 would happen. As long as our enemies believe the we have a weak leader and with dems in power, they’ll be emboldened. Once NK has the capability to hit Hawaii, they will.
Seven rows of seven stars each, staggered half a space alternating each row...just like it did between Hawaii and Alaska...I remember it well.
Obama looks on an attack by Korea as an ally coming to the rescue to help him in his attack on the American way of life.
