And the missile that can beat the defense system is a joke...
it's one of Many defense systems we have in place
Our first thing was screwing them over on the Missile reduction treaty, we droped the numbers of nukes from like 26,000 to around 10,000 BUT the ones
we have we upgraded to include heavier warheads, smart guidance technology and bunker busting capacity
Most of our ICBMs are designed now to penetrate and actually are capable of destroying Russian Nukes in silo so they can't be launched
But meanwhile, the United States steadily improved its “counterforce” capabilities—those nuclear weapons most effective at targeting an
enemy’s nuclear arsenal. Even as it reduced the number of weapons in its nuclear arsenal, the U.S. made its remaining weapons more lethal and
accurate. The result today is a global nuclear imbalance unseen in 50 years.
articles about China but the point is clear
#2 our first Missile defense is Hydrogen Warheads specifically designed to blow an EMP surge, Sub launched these Missiles would target the atmosphere
high above Russia as their Missiles were sub orbital, the resulting emp would fry their circuts and make both the detonation timers and guidance
Russia did a few years back design and test shielded missiles but could have at best currently deployed 20-30 of them and it is those 20-30 misiles
that the actual intercept systems are designed to target
this is why Russia Fears the missile shield, because it knows in a single volley it would loose 99% of it's missiles to this tactic
and if they just tested a missile that can evade a missile shield ... how many do they have deployed offering both those features atm... ZERO
By the late 1960s, a nuclear-tipped interceptor missile dubbed Sentinel had been developed. Sentinel was designed to destroy incoming warheads by
detonating near them, and was intended for deployment around major cities to protect them against accidental launch of one or several Soviet missiles
or against a limited strike by China. The system was never deployed, however, and in 1969 President Richard Nixon announced that Sentinel would be
renamed Safeguard and reassigned to protecting "our land-based retaliatory forces [i.e., nuclear-tipped ICBMs based in the American Midwest] against
a direct attack by the Soviet Union." At this time, however, the United States and Soviet Union were nearing agreement that ballistic-missile defense
(BMD) is inherently destabilizing.
This system was actually invented in the 60's but "not deployed" in forward fashion because of the ABM
as you all should know we have essentially discarded the ABM at this time
So 99% of Russian Nukes are Useless
Add to this we have deployed Haarp which can use microwaves to have the same effect, except that it is capable of working over a much greater range
with far less colateral damge to friendly nations and us warships at sea from EMP blasts which have no limits, further Haarp technology can be and
surely has been implemented from innocuous looking antennas hundreds of miles apart which can not be identified or targeted given numbers and mean
distance from one another, there could be one on the building your living in now and you'd never know it is anything other than a cell phone
Then for the handful of Missiles both shielded and capable of evasion, before hitting the continental US they will have to pass through, several
layers of these as they approach our shores, Traditional combat jets launched as interceptors with air to air missiles, and:
Whatever we have in "testing" stateside that is available for use... which includes Lazer systems that are in working use (I have seen the new
mexico tests light the sky as far away as san diego) and that was years ago
All Russia has is it's subs and we have ringed the heck out of both coasts with sonar and can tell when they approach and have a far superior Navy at
this point and time... and coastal missile defense systems in place too
Russia has it's back up against the wall
"This is not 1969" was a very grave message, the Pentagon believes it can win an all out Nuclear confrontation with Russia with the loss of only a
few cities at worst and they are for the MOMENT correct
The Poland shield is... for Europe we are already in position and Europe is partially shielded already via a haarp clone project in greenland
and I have said it before.
China is the other end of the US Axis, there are 30 Million plus Chinese migrants in Siberia already
China has blatantly stated it wants a return to it's territories of the Middle Kingdom
I heard not that long ago a chinese General asked "when you refer to China as the middle Kingdom Which Dynasty do you see that being the Sung?" and
he smiled and responded in English " No Post Sung Dynasty "
Wish I had the video of that...
That was our deal, this is why we acknowledge a one china policy and let them handle Korea and are building 2 super highways to import tons of Chinese
The Spy Plane that went down in China on April of 2001 was not an accident it was an offering by the Bush administration to the Dragon prior to
This is why China did not back Russia this week, this is why they put the sub base in the South Pacific, This is why we want a war with Iran... and
don't care that we are overextended, this is why we have bases in Khazakstan and Uzbekistan and they have a base now in Iran, This is why we hit
Afghanastan first, because it opens the door to the midle east to China and this is why all the oil we took is going to them not us, this is what
Georgia is being wrecked for.
it's all forward deployment and softening the region up
