He also claims to have run a gauntlet of 1200 yards with automatic weaps and sniper fire from two directions and somehow his boat didn’t suffer any damage...

The U.S. should use missile defense to render any enemy’s weapons useless, or as close to useless as our technical capability allows.

On the other hand, why we have been intent since the end of the Cold War on making the Russian Federation our enemy when they are natural allies against both politicized Islam (at least of the Salafist variety) and China is beyond me. If we hadn’t been doing this since Clinton’s Balkan adventurism, they might not be trying to use the Iranian lunatics as a pawn in a balance of power game against us.

Obama Pledges Cuts in Missile Defense, Space, and Nuclear Weapons Programs

February 29, 2008 :: News
MissileThreat.com

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."

Skerry isn't the problem, its the hoards of ignorant liberal entitlement zombie parasites that keep voting for the traitor.
God forbid that we ever suffer a nuclear strike, but if we do, I just hope bean town is ground zero. They deserve it.

Imagine having a job where you are able to make a bloody jackass of yourself in public, and nearly be assured of never getting fired.

“That was shrapnel from his own rounds...”

No, that was scrape #1...I’m talking about when he did his “Old Yellowstain” Impersonation, gunned his boat and left three other boats behind...dumped a guy overboard bugging out and went half a mile down river before turning around...he screwed because he was “taking fire” but their was no repair record in the after action report.

John F....ing Kerry strikes again. It is like the time before he became a senator and spoke before a Commission in DC about the reason america needs to withdraw from Vietnam. JFK is just another name for a horse’s behind.

Kerry is a communist. Nobody in Russia is communist anymore. But, Kerry is still a communist. For him, the Cold War never ended and he’s still fighting the “bad guy.”

Plus, he's married to a GOP Senator's widow with zillions of $$$. This guy knows how to screw over the system...

Militarily speaking, 40 years later and he still has his head up his rear end? The people of MA gotta be idiots to let his guy stay in Congress. It could have been worse, he could have stayed in the Navy and eventually become an Admiral. His political connections would have gotten him an 0-9 slot at the Pentagon. WPOS.
