"A Vision of the Future, Which Offers Hope"

Real missile defense.

The 49th Missile Defense Battalion, Ft. Greely, Alaska.

It's a little old, but I hadn't seen the Nightline episode on this. Nor the stunningly insightful Keef analysis of the concept!

He's brainy. You can tell from the glasses. He kinda doesn't get it that Poland intercepts might be intercepting things aimed past Poland.

incidentally, cheap Dave in Texas observation, his tie is most often dimpled in the center.


All seriousness aside, I had no idea we had deployed these things I thought we were testing.

Not. Complaining.

also, a noteworthy note worth noting:

the critics that in one breath say that our enemies are too inept to even get an ICBM to our shores also say in the very next breath that these same enemies have the technological prowess to cap their primitive rockets with the most advanced countermeasures in the world.

We can't count on them being dopes forever, but we can ride that a bit until we have Poland missiled up, can't we?

thanks to Cuffy, an imaginary thug from some book I did not read.

UPDATE: duh. even as I try to catch up, he posts Part Three.

This is the difference between a rocket scientist and a Cowboys fan.
