Skip to comments.New Obama Missile Defense Logo Includes a Crescent

The Obama administrations determined effort to reduce Americas missile defense capabilities initially seemed to be just standard Leftist fare of a piece with the Democratic bases visceral hostility to the idea of protecting us against ballistic missile threats. A just-unveiled symbolic action suggests, however, that something even more nefarious is afoot.
The former would be bad enough, starting with Candidate Obamas pledge to block unproven missile defenses. Once in office, he cut over a billion dollars from the Missile Defense Agencys budget. He cancelled the deployment of interceptors and radars in Eastern Europe designed to defend this country, as well as our allies over there.
Among other reprehensible actions, Team Obama terminated the nations only program capable of providing a near-term ability to intercept ballistic missiles early in their flight (i.e., the boost-phase). This Airborne Laser Program nonetheless was successfully tested earlier this month destroying not one but two missiles similar to those arrayed against us and our friends today and making the case that such systems should be operationalized and deployed as a matter of the utmost urgency.
Then, there are the persistent reports that President Obama is going to accede to Russian demands to reinstitute bilateral restrictions on missile defenses as part of the new START follow-on treaty now being finalized with the Kremlin. Moscow lost its effective veto over such U.S. systems when George W. Bush withdrew from the 1972 Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty in 2001 and the Russians have been as anxious as its American fellow-travelers to be able to exercise it again.
Now, thanks to an astute observation by Christopher Logan of the Logans Warning blog, we have another possible explanation for behavior that in the face of rapidly growing threats posed by North Korean, Iranian, Russian, Chinese and others ballistic missiles can only be described as treacherous and malfeasant: Team Obamas anti-anti-missile initiatives are not simply acts of unilateral disarmament of the sort to be expected from an Alinsky acolyte. They seem to fit an increasingly obvious and worrying pattern of official U.S. submission to Islam and the theo-political-legal program the latters authorities call Shariah.
What could be code-breaking evidence of the latter explanation is to be found in the newly-disclosed redesign of the Missile Defense Agency logo (above). As Logan helpfully shows, the new MDA shield appears ominously to reflect a morphing of the Islamic crescent and star with the Obama campaign logo. (For a comparison, the previous logo is below.)
Even as the administration has lately made a show of rushing less capable sea- and land-based short-range (theater) missile defenses into the Persian Gulf in the face of rising panic there about Irans actual/incipient ballistic missile and nuclear capabilities, Team Obama is behaving in a way that as the new MDA logo suggests is all about accommodating that Islamic Republic and its ever-more aggressive stance.
Kinda looks like it’s shooting down a crescent.
...everyday - it keeps getting more and more worst with this “Siege of the Republic” by this illegal president...
what the bloody hell
This piece of excrement can’t be gone soon enough.
This has to stop. Dear reader wants to be a king. Do they think we don’t notice?
I have read several articles on this, but have yet to read who designed it. Was it someone on the Pentagon’s staff? I assume the Pentagon has an in-house graphics group. Or did they farm it out to a contractor? If so, who or what? If it was farmed out, how much did it cost? What was wrong with the old one? Inquiring minds want to know.
lots of action on this...
Missile Defense Agency says the person to call about this is Rick Lehner. 703-697-8997; email@example.com.
Good point. Repeat often: Who designed this thing?
Up on Drudge too.
In most military organizations, they get a committee together, solicit suggestions from members (sometimes they make it a fun contest), and then the committee gets some designs from the graphics shop or they outsource that part, then everyone votes on which one they like best.
That said, MDA is far from what I'd call a "fun" organization and it wouldn't surprise me at all if it is rife with obamabots.
Who commissioned a redesign?
I would think we have better things do with our taxpayer dollars than retrofit a logo.
I’ve been looking at this for the past couple of days and it sort of reminds me of the picture where the sun was coming up ove the earth’s horizon and it was taken from the shuttle .... but then, it sure does look very Islamic though ...
I want more threads on the Islamification of Space Emblems!!!!
I want more threads about whales eating people!!!!
I want more threads about Arizona requiring proof of citizenship (sic) for Federal Candidates!!!
Logos are redesigned all the time to bring them more in line with current morays.
“Logos are redesigned all the time to bring them more in line with current MORONS”.
Sorry couldn’t resist.
You mean Frank Gaffney? I agree.
Best I’ve heard is that it is signifying a nuclear missile hitting the “heart of the crescent”, Mecca.
(Of course, Muslims would find this deeply offensive, so would demand that the logo be changed. heh.)
Mrs. Prince of Space
and how much did it cost and who got the contract???
prolly a cool mil tooo...
Mores (English pronunciation: /ˈmɔreɪz, -iz, ˈmoʊr-/, singular mos) is the Latin term for societal norms, customs, virtues or values. Mores derive from the established practices of a society rather than its written laws. They consist of shared understandings about the kinds of behavior likely to evoke approval, disapproval, toleration or sanction, within particular contexts.
I’ll bet the Muslims will bitch about mocking their symbol.
