Obama decides to unilaterally announce secret U.S. missile tests, satellite launches
L.A. Times ^ | 5/21/10 | Andrew Malcolm

Posted on 05/21/2010 9:17:25 AM PDT by Nachum

Obama has decided to pre-announce to the world once-secret American ballistic missile tests and satellite launches.

The Democratic administration's goal is to show a friendlier face to other countries and to coax Russia to do the same.

It's part of a confidence-boosting initiative launched, so to speak, last fall when Obama suddenly abandoned the U.S. missile-defense system in Eastern Europe that had exercised the Russians, though it was aimed at potential future missiles from Iran.

Obama hoped such a unilateral U.S. forfeiture would encourage Russia to put pressure on Iran to halt its nuclear weapons development. So far no good on that.

At some point, he is going to package up our most advanced thermonuclear devices and hand them to Iran — it will be a test to see if we can trust those bastards.

I would hope that the Pentagon, as well as major defense contractors, keep the important secrets of this country away from this idiot.

This guy is a danger to our country. To think we have to live with this guy until 2012. Hopefully we will at least takeover the House in 2010. God help us.

About what you'd expect from the sophomore-in-chief.

Seriously -- take any topic and ask what an idealistic, left-leaning, 19 year old sophomore would do in any given situation ... and you'll accurately predict what Obama will do about it.

2012 can't come soon enough.

He going to coax the Russians to do the same? What is he smoking?

Not only does this not serve a purpose, it makes him look like a rookie.

Is the whole purpose of his administration to make Hillary look good in comparison?

How she can be his SOS is beyond me. Any bets on her staying past December?

Note the tone of the article. It seems that even the LASlimes is a little bothered by this action.They even point out the failure of the haloed one’s gooder outreach to Iran. Maybe people are starting to notice.

This may be one of those ‘watch the other hand’ moments.

The launch of Minuteman and all other strategic deterrents have been advertised since the beginning of missiles. This is done so that other nuclear capable countries don't mistake it for a first strike.

What explanation? He doesn’t take any questions except screened ones.

Aren’t these announced already ? There are frequent threads announcing a launch is about to take place in Florida or Vandenberg, with a “classified cargo”. So what ?

Not only does this not serve a purpose, it makes him look like a rookie.

It makes him look like a total idiot.

He listened too intently to all the communists and revolutionaries with which he has beeen surrounded spout their crackpot ideas of what they would do if they ran things.

Now he's trying to act on them. Vlad the Impaler must laugh himself to sleep at night. Putin understands that his primary responsibility is the protection of Russia; our Prexy doesn't act as if he has the foggiest idea that his primary responsibility is the well-being of the United States.
