JEFFHEAD.COM ^ | 19 May 2012 | Jef Head

Posted on 05/20/2012 7:18:07 AM PDT by Jeff Head

Proposed US Military buildup under a conservative U.S. Administration circa 2012-2024

CLICK HERE FOR THE FULL ARTICLE

The following plan is based on a major US economic turnaround based on sound Free Market principles geared to US interests, energy independendece, a balanced budget, stabilization of Social Security & Medicare & eliminating unessary and wasteful entitlements & entire federal agencies. It is also based,under a conservative leadership in Washington, on adopting lower corporate and individual income taxes so the revenue to the treasury expands and increases significantly which will fuel the buildup necessary to remain technologically superior by two generations to any potential enemy on earth, and to be in a position to contain and defeat any outbreaks of agression on a minimum of two major theaters, and one minor theater simultaneously. Follow the links below to each specific area of this far reaching proposal.

[US FOREIGN POLICY] - [US NAVY] - [US AIR FORCE] - [US ARMY] - [US MARINES] - [US COAST GUARD] - [LINKS]

FORIEGN POLICY & NATIONAL SECUIRTY INITIATIVES 2014-2024: [BACK TO START]

No nuclear weapons for Iran by whatever means necessary as quickly as possible. Make officill US Policy the regime change in Iran with the express goal to a secular republican principled representative government in Iran, friendly to the US within five years. Offer whatever aide necessary to secular, republican based citizens in Iran to achieve this goal, including intelligence, reconnaisence, logistics, supplies, weapons, and special forces and air support as necessary.
Develop a land based AEGIS BMD capability using land installed 48 cell SM-3 VLS missile units to deploy, with security forces, to whichever European and Asian or other allies who desire them and are willing to pay for them and their security and upkeep, including Japan, Korea and the Republic of China (Taiwan).
Urge the UK to build both of its new carriers in the CATOBAR configuration, assisting them finanacially if necessary so that F-18, F-35, E-2D and other aircraft crossdecking can occur.
Assist the Republic of China in building eight AIP SS vessels of their own to a similar design as the US NAvy will start building (see below).
Ensure that China is aware that the US Navy will enforce freedom of the seas and right of passage, right through the critical sea lanes in the China and South China Seas to our allies and will brook no bullying of Taiwan, the Philipines, South Korea, Japan or any other US ally in the region. On the other hand, ensure that the Chinese Navy (PLAN) and the PRC understand that we will cooperate with them on mutual interst against pirates, other rogue nations, and on humanitarian endeavors.
Upgrade and expand Guam's docking, repair, air field capacity, and self defense capabilities (its air defense, ballistic missile defense, and sea defenses). Forward deply a full squadron of F-22s, a full squardron of attack submarines and guided missiles destroyers and the necessary logistical assets to support them.
Become completely energy independent by 2020, and grow to be the largest next exporter of oil and energy in the world by 2025. Then inform the Middle Eastern (OPEC) and other nations who have held the US hostage to oil production whose governmental policies are an enigma to US policy that they can drink their own oil for tea and suppplant them as the oil provider to our allies for cheaper proces, and through more secure sea lane delivery.
Forge closer economic and military ties with India, assisting them to convert from older Soviet block equipment to newer western (US) technologies. Work with them on Free Trade economic initiatives with the idea of a future alliance with them, perhaps inviting them into ASEAN.
Ensure that Pakistan knows that its relationship with the US is dependent upon strengthening its civil liberties, secular republican principles, and engagement of the radcial islamics operating within its borders, helping the US achieve its goal of the elimination of Al Quida and Taliban influence there. Continuously update plans for taking down and neutralizing Pakistan's nuclear weapons should any fundamental islamic regime appear emminent.
Ensure that the Israeli government and people understand that the US policy is the protection of Israeli soveriegnty and defensible borders. That no peace with the Palestinians will be possible until the Palestinians completely repudiate Islamic terror and the destruction of Israel and until other Arabic nations (ie. Jordan, Egyt and Syria) agree to swap Gaza territories particularly for lands adjoining the West bank with their own and resettling Palestinians away from Gaza which would become soveriegn Israeli territory. In addition, Jeruselam would become the Israeli capital with the West Bank territories moved back at least 20 km away from Jerusalem.
Bring home regular US troops from foreign bases in nations that will not pay for their support and upkeep and where there is no over-riding strategic US interest in maintaining them there. For allied nations wanting our forces and willing to pay for their upkeep and stationing, and where there is a vested US interest, ensure that said basing is top notch for military and their families, and well secured with strong ROEs to ensure force and basing protection.
Station National Guard forces along the Southern US border to act in a over watch capacity, doing recon, intelligence, and, where necessary, direct interdiction of illegal aliens, and particularly drug trafficers in support of the US Border Patrol which will be strengthened, tooled up with pradator drones abd global hawk drones, and will have a double fence, with periodic observation posts and staging areas for equipment and personnel all along the border to close down illegal entry into this nation. Committ one or two divisions of troops to this activity.
Develop and build two US geosynchronous US Space stations that are joint NASA and US Military stations, with self-defense capabilities, and capable of BMD. Also capable of staging for inter-system missions to the Moon, Mars, the asteroid belts, and ultimately beyond to Saturn and Jupiter's moons. Target the completion of the 1st station by 2024 and the second by 2028. Target a permanent base on the Moon by 2028, and the first manned mission to mars by 2032.

PROPOSED US NAVY BUILDUP 2014-2024: [BACK TO START]

Thanks Jeff Head. Haven't read much of the rest yet, but like this:
Ensure that the Israeli government and people understand that the US policy is the protection of Israeli soveriegnty and defensible borders. That no peace with the Palestinians will be possible until the Palestinians completely repudiate Islamic terror and the destruction of Israel and until other Arabic nations (ie. Jordan, Egyt and Syria) agree to swap Gaza territories particularly for lands adjoining the West bank with their own and resettling Palestinians away from Gaza which would become soveriegn Israeli territory.

This has got to be one of your greatest posts in a history of great posts, Jeff Head. Well-thought, well reasoned based on realities of a history of a cruel forces/ideologies operating on planet earth. Tremendously detailed. Thank you, sir.

BTTT!

How about ending NATO, or at least scaling-back NATO drastically? Why the US is guaranteeing security for 35 EU nations is beyond me. NATO’s Mission ended 20 years ago.

Replace it with bilateral security agreements with UK and Germany only.

We have to support Israel and make it the beacon for republican government in the area. Then, read the Iran initiative. The Persian [people by and large want a secular government, it is the radical Arabs amongst them that support and hold up the mullahs. We need to help them bring it down and work with those people to create another secular, free nation there which is well disposed towards us. Those topw things, solve the Mid East problem, because together, the two would be unassailable...along with what Bush accomplished in Iraq, which these initiatives would solidify.

The Army also needs to replace the M-109A6 Paladin Self Propelled 155mm Artillery system. The Paladin cannot be upgraded an further. We used to have a replacement in the pipeline until Barry was elected. Had Obama not cancelled te NLOS Cannon program we would be going to production next spring.

IMHO, we can, with a Reagan-like turnaround, fix social securityy and medicare, balance the budget, get rid of the rediculous programs and agencies, and defend this nation in this manner.

I pray we will because there is more trouble on the horizon.

No, EV, Mitt Romney is not “my” candidate. He is what we are left with to go against Obama with any chances of defeating the Kenyan Marxist. Sarah, Cain, Santorum, and Newt were all “my” candidates in that order.

But, he is what we are left with, so I will vote for him against Obama...and he has indicated rather strongly that he intends to build the US military back up so that it is unassaiable by any existing or projected power. If elected then, there is the chance that he will do at least some of these types of things.

With Obama, there is none.

I may be a little biased when it comes to the NLOS system because I was part of the test team for 3 years. But the Paladin needs to be replaced soon.

He is what we are left with

Zero minus zero equals zero.

Mitt Romney is not “my” candidate

Well, Jeff, if you are supporting him he is your candidate. That's just reality.

If elected then, there is the chance that he will do at least some of these types of things.

To believe that you have to ignore the entire history of the Neville Chamberlainesque elite faction that Mitt Romney represents.

As you the rest of your wish list, can you point me some examples of liberal Republicans working to get spending, and entitlements, and the size and scope of government under any kind of control?

EV, we have posted back and forth for several years. You know my positions.

Romney’s stances on the issues, which he is runnong on now, are far, far better than Obama’s so it is not a zero sum game at all.

If we can elect a Tea Party oriented majority in the House and Seante (or clearly be heading in that direction), which is what we have to do in any case, then we will be able to have the environment where they serve up the Acts and legislation that will cause Romney to keep his campaign stances and commitments. That’s how we have to do it.

We may not get nearly all we want...but if we do that, the economy and many things will turn around.

With Obama there is no chance of that.

Have a great day EV...even though we see differently on how to react to the GOP putting Romney up there, which is surely not what I wanted, we can work together on the House and Seant which is something we have to do in any case.

God’s speed.

Certainly laudable goals Jeff, but in an era where the debt service alone equals the total FedGov revenue, and our credit has assumed ‘imaginary’ status, how will we achieve it?

The more I reflect on your post, the more appalled I am.

By your own apt partial description of what it will take to have the basis to defend the country, under Romney or Obama no such defense is possible. Because it is a certainty that neither one will do the things you describe. No chance. None at all.

The idea of Romney eliminating departments, or reining in entitlements, or even reducing the size and scope of government at all, just doesn't pass the laugh test.

I cannot help but think about the Iowa class of battleships,of the four all should be kept in a ready to go to war footing, all should have ammunition especially the 16 inch shells.

Maybe its my overtime imagination but sometimes simple stuff works better than high tech. Sort of like paper, rock and scissor.

If someone like myself cannot get elected it is because too many of those whose views I represent are busy supporting someone they admit they hate, who does not represent them. So, don't blame me. All I'm doing is raising the standard.

"If, to please the people, we offer what we ourselves disprove, how can we afterwards defend our work? Let us raise a standard to which the wise and the honest can repair. The event is in the hand of God."

Jeff, good work, but a couple quibbles -

Run spellcheck and edit. In one place you use the word “enigma” when I’m pretty sure you meant “anathema.”

Second, the Army needs to look in a whole new direction. The Infantry always bears the brunt of the casualties but little is done to enhance the infantry’s capability or survivability. It’s time to look into powered armor for the infantry.

Whoops, sorry for the double tap. It’s what I get for posting from my phone sometimes.

“stabilization of Social Security & Medicare”

Meaningless piffle revealing nothing. Instead of bland semantics, deal with the reality. Just to put those programs on a solid footing you will need to either cut benefits, raise taxes or do both. With the coming tsunami of Boomers along with a war weary public, you have a better chance of winning the lottery than witnessing your dream turn into a reality.

Build 24 each of the two LCS class vessels (Freedom and Independence) and upgrade them in a Flight II version that adds more multi-mission capability to them by adding a 16 cell MK-41 launcher, two eight cannister Harpoon launchers, and a 2nd RAM launcher to each vessel.
These ships traded too much for thier 50 knot speed, and the Freedom class get hull cracks at full speed.

The plan is a military and national security plan. It is not a medicare or social security plan. However, for it to work, the economic situation not only has to become stable, it must improve significantly.

So, it states that those programs (among quite a few other statements) have to be stabilized and not threaten budgetary consideration. I believe they can be...but that is not what this particlar initiative and plan are about...it simply presumes it.

>> “If someone like myself cannot get elected it is because too many of those whose views I represent are busy supporting someone they admit they hate, who does not represent them. So, don’t blame me. All I’m doing is raising the standard.” <<

.
That comment is utterly invidious of the structure and realities of the American political system. Can’t say whether its just ignorant, or if its deliberately deceptive, but it offers nothing of use to the debate for those honestly seeking solutions.

“Certainly laudable goals Jeff, but in an era where the debt service alone equals the total FedGov revenue, and our credit has assumed ‘imaginary’ status, how will we achieve it?”

The theory says grow the economy.

But military buildup is not capable of growing the economy. It’s just as much a drag on the economy as any welfare check is. It rides the back of those that can grow the economy.

The following plan is based on a major US economic turnaround based on sound Free Market principles geared to US interests, energy independendece, a balanced budget, stabilization of Social Security & Medicare & eliminating unessary and wasteful entitlements & entire federal agencies.

Well, in that case, there's no point in reading it, at least not until Harry Reid and John Boehner are deposed from leadership.
