Hagel Announces Steps To Improve Missile Defense Against North Korea

3/15/2013 3:20 PM ET

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel announced Friday that the U.S. is taking additional steps to defend itself from a nuclear attack by North Korea.

Hagel said that the U.S. would deploy fourteen additional ground-based missile interceptors, providing a 50 percent increase in the nation’s missile defense capability.

The Defense Secretary said that the U.S. would also deploy additional radar in Japan to provide improved early warning and tracking.

Additionally, Hagel said that the Defense Department is conducting an environmental impact study of a new ground-based interceptor site in the U.S.

The moves come on the heels of a recent nuclear test by North Korea, which has also threatened a pre-emptive attack on South Korea and the U.S.

Let’s see, which is more harmful to the environment?

1) an Anti-Ballistic Missile System or,

2) a nuclear explosion

Sorry Seattle, but we cannot protect your city from a nuclear ballistic missile attack since the protective missile system will harm the environment.

What was the Senate thinking when they confirmed this clown.

    Do you ever plan to add to or take part in a discussion or is your whole purpose just to attack what others say? Time to ante up or take a hike. //Moderator

      So, let’s look at crusty’s logic….

      “Idiot” – Already out of the gate with insults…. Typical and pathetic.

      According to him,”We are not under immediate threat from NK.” Ok, we will take this at face value for the moment…. However, the missile shield on the west coast is not my idea but obAMATEUR’s. He apparently has more information at hand than you crusty (and apparently much smarter than you as well). Obviously he sees a credible threat or he is just playing appeasing politics to the left coast. Which is it?

      Apparently, you can’t even comprehend the first and last sentences in the thread: “Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel announced Friday that the U.S. is taking additional steps to defend itself from a nuclear attack by North Korea.” and “The moves come on the heels of a recent nuclear test by North Korea, which has also threatened a pre-emptive attack on South Korea and the U.S.” Isn’t poor reading comprehension a bitch there crusty? It bites you in the ass once again.

      “Is it your proposal we should compromise our environment for a far distant threat willy nilly like the children’s story “chicken little”?” First off, obAMATEUR is playing the role of “chicken little” he is willy nilly setting up a missile shield for a threat you say is not immediate, despite the threats. Is is your position that we should spend MILLIONS of dollars we do not have for the reason that “We are not under immediate threat from NK.”? So in your view, I am an idiot for bringing this up since “We are not under immediate threat from NK.” But obAMATEUR is not at idiot for spending millions for an UNPROVEN (his words not too long ago) protection we apparently don’t need according to you – regardless of what that little spoiled punk is declaring in North Korea. Wow, clear thinking there crusty.

      “Let the adults handle things, idiot.” Again, with the insults and by the way, repeating lies over and over will not make them truth. An adult would not have let NK get as far as they had in their nuclear and delivery system technology. 2008 candidate obama stated that he would meet with North Korea (among others) without preconditions – and since then he has done NOTHING! An adult would not have let this situation get this far. We are going to compromise our safety and security for an OK from the EPA? What if the EPA says that the environment will be compromised – then no missile shield? Again, if the threats were credible which would have more of a devastating impact on the environment?

      Nice try drone. Your inability to comprehend the written word is astounding. Again, you miss the whole point, as usual.

      • tiredoflibbs March 16, 2013 / 12:03 pm

        Crusty, your simple statement has no bearing. When you cannot argue against facts, you simply dismiss it. You can’t simply dismiss it. Hagel made the statement, which shows that the environment is more important than protecting this country even from an event more harmful than a potential impact on the environment.

        I like the way you cherry-pick. I debunk your entire silly argument earlier. Now you make baseless statements and try and not to look so foolish as before. You can’t.

        First rules of holes crusty. You, like other proggies cannot learn from history and you are destined to repeat it.

      • tiredoflibbs March 16, 2013 / 1:21 pm

        Crusty, you are repeating your baseless dismissal.

        Harming the environment is the common factor in both scenarios (You do know what dichotomy means don’t you?) – one action may harm while the other action will definitely harm it.
        The questions are:
        1) do you want to protect the country from nuclear attack?
        2) Not protect the country for fear of the GBI may have an impact the environment and risk an attack that will definitely cause almost irreparable harm to the environment?

        Harming the environment is the common factor in both cases. If you need to call it false in order to not appear foolish then go right ahead. You just reveal that you are a hack who will go along with anything this administration says and defend it till the end – no matter the cost.

        You do realize that you cannot put these GBIs anywhere? Again, what happens if the study reveals that an endangered species will be harmed? Oh well… too bad.

        Just keep repeating it to yourself, that you are correct. It is the only way for you to feel better and protect your dainty ego. Just keep digging yourself deeper and deeper while ignoring what you said before and how I easily refuted it.

      • tiredoflibbs March 16, 2013 / 1:38 pm

        Where are the events mutually exclusive? In order for it to be a dichotomy, they have to be. (Damn, I just gave him the answer to my earlier question. Show me where a positive environmental impact study will not prevent the construction of the site to go ahead anyway.)

        And I showed they were not. I expect too much from you – first you have dismal reading comprehension and second extremely poor to non-existent reasoning skills. You provide no explanation or reasoning – you repeat yourself and just simply dismiss it.

        Again, you do realize that you cannot put these GBIs just anywhere and expect them to protect as effectively than the optimal environmentally sensitive area, don’t you?

        Keep digging crusty.

      • Amazona March 16, 2013 / 3:37 pm

        There was a time when there was no imminent threat from Japan. Or Germany. Or Russia. There was a time when there was no imminent threat to Jews, Catholics or gypsies from the German government. There was a time when there was no imminent threat to……but I don’t need to go on, do I?

        Intelligence includes the ability to understand changes in attitudes, patterns and behaviors to anticipate the building of threats before they become “imminent”. And of course one has to define “imminent”. Is it within a day? A week? A month? A year?

        How could one determine if a threat is developing? Perhaps statements to the effect that a nation or government will act against a group when they become powerful enough, or have the necessary weaponry, would be a clue.

        Of course, to the clueless this is incomprehensible. The mindless minions of the Left are so busy finding racial threats coded in normal everyday speech, threats to all women in simple awareness of religious freedom (Mitt Romney wants to DENY ACCESS TO HEALTH CARE !!!!!!!! for women!!!) and other ephemeral “threats” they can blame on that wicked Right, to bother with statements of actual threats from nations in the process of arming themselves with what they would need to make those threats reality.

        Why worry about developing nuclear arms in the hands of people who have stated a desire and intent to wipe the United States off the map when there is the horrifying specter of a fair trial for a white man in Florida to obsess over? Why give a thought to what it would be like to have cities bombed by a nation with the capability to deliver nuclear weapons when they finish their development of same, when faced with the terrifying THREAT of gay couples not being able to use a single word to describe their unions?

    • M. Noonan March 16, 2013 / 1:09 am

      And the Magical Mystery Obama just snapped his fingers and got a working SDI….my goodness that is amazing. Glad we listened to you liberals and didn’t put any effort in to it at all between 1983 and 2009 ’cause then we got our Special Prez who can just whistle up SDI programs at need.

      • tiredoflibbs March 16, 2013 / 6:53 am

        Mark, obAMATEUR believed in SDI so much that when he became pResident, he cut the program 15% in his 2010 budget.

        Also, If you listened to his “state of the union speech”, he snapped his fingers and created millions of jobs, revitalized our manufacturing industry, cut the deficit, introduced new spending all paid for 100% etc. etc – despite facts to the contrary and drones like crusty will believe them. I want some of his magical fairy dust! I’ll cast it out and whatever I say mindless people will follow without question.

    I have to admit though Kim Un reminds me a lot of Obama. Completely unprepared for the job, other people hold his hand through most of the day, and he blames others when things go wrong. Our final step to officially becoming a banana republic would then be to elect Hillary. Liberals really must be proud.

    Obama’s government at work:

    –$27 million to the country of Morocco to teach the folks over there how to make pottery. I guess the Moroccan government is not capable of pottery instruction. This con is courtesy of the U.S. Agency for International Development, which now has the nerve to tell us that the pottery project is “not on track to achieve its goals.” Translation, the dollars we sent were likely stolen.

    –$1.5 million to the Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston to study why many American lesbians are overweight. The National Institutes of Health calls the situation “an issue of high public-health significance.”

    –$947,000 to research a “Mars menu.” This would determine what astronauts could eat on the planet Mars if they ever get there. NASA says it will send six volunteers into a barren Hawaiian landscape to eat stuff so it can figure out what tastes good on Mars.

    –$325,000 to develop a robotic squirrel. The National Science Foundation wants the robots to scare rattlesnakes. The agency also says the robosquirrels will help in “public outreach.”

    –The National Science Foundation strikes again by funding a New York City theater company called The Civilians. They got nearly $700,000 in tax money to put on a play about “climate change and biodiversity.”

    Yet, Obama wanted us all to believe that slowing the rate of growth after the sequester would result in American children not getting vaccines. The Moroccan pottery classes will not be affected though.

    I don’t know why liberals are so angry all the time. They are living the dream right now. They have high gas prices, high unemployment, higher taxes, more entitlements, a slower economy, less rich people and an ever expanding, bloated incompetent government. What more do they want?

    • neocon01 March 16, 2013 / 11:26 am

        Just ask the ghosts of the 35k officers of the soviet union that stalin murdered. Just ask the millions that stalin murdered in the great purge. Just ask the 60 million or so that perished for mao’s cultural revolution. Just ask the million or so “intelligentsia” that pol murdered in cambodia.

        a police state where only the police are armed and conservatives dead.

        Just what I was thinking the other day on my way out of town.

        It’s okay to liberals if conservatives side with them. They say, “well, that’s fine.” But all in all, in general, liberals want to eliminate conservatives altogether. I mean, actually physically destroy/murder us. A liberal won’t admit to it, but of course not. Their main objective at the moment is to relegate conservatives. As is seen in Mitche’s posts calling conservatives “crazy, irrelevant” so forth and so on.

        Only thing keeping us alive right now is our 2nd Amendment right. Thank the Lord for that!

        But more concerning, and another way the liberals have around our 2nd Amendment right to eliminate us is through the monetary situation, if they continue destroying jobs, and putting more people on the government assistance programs, and effectively collapse our economy, and the stores close their doors to those seeking groceries, then most in the country will go hungry, which causes weakness, and therefore the inability to fight to stay alive. Then the government can send in their henchmen whether we have guns or no guns, and take out whomever they please with ease.

        When I speak of liberals in the sense above, it mostly refers to our government. But the liberals who voted for this administration are also included. Many of these voters will not go unaffected by who they voted for. Many of them will go hungry, and be offed by the government, as well.

      • Jeremiah March 17, 2013 / 12:50 am

        Really, the question bears asking…

        Do we wanna wait til the government collapses our economy, and weakens us to the point that we can’t fight to keep ourselves alive and prospering before we try to mount a defense for our sacred right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness?

      • Jeremiah March 17, 2013 / 12:57 am

        Do we wanna put faith in another election to secure our right to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness?

        Seriously???

        Like Rush said a few weeks ago, we have been outnumbered by the liberals in this country, because of the mind control on succeeding generations from way back, starting a long time ago. Education is where it all started. And it took our liberal educational system to get enough people to take over the media, entertainment so forth and so on. And it spans many millions of people that have been trained from little children by educational system. And the educational system’s goal is communism – and has been from way back, a long, long time ago when they took over it.

        So no, I don’t think it’s possible to put blind faith in another election. Gonna have to make change by other means,.

      • Jeremiah March 17, 2013 / 1:12 am

        No, zero!

        Geraldo Rivera, I don’t know why on earth Fox News gave him a job there, or why in the heck they allow Juan Williams on there, or that Alan Colmes. I don’t know why they ever allowed those idiots on Fox News! Gimminee Christmas!

      Some of the most beautiful pottery in the world was made by aboriginal peoples all over the world, hundreds or even thousands of years ago. Are the people of Morocco somehow inherently inferior to the rest of the world, unable to figure out what the most primitive of people have known for so long?

      On the other hand, LOVE the robotic squirrel. If it is successful in scaring rattlesnakes, can they make a robotic rattlesnake to scare prairie dogs? As for “public outreach” if a robotic squirrel reaches out to me, I will probably be pretty unhappy.

    We might want to check and see if hell has frozen over. From last nights Bill Maher show:

    Pointing at Virginia’s former Republican Congressman Tom Davis, Maher said, “You know what? Rich people – I’m sure you’d agree with this – actually do pay the freight in this country.” “I just saw these statistics,” he continued, “I mean, something like 70 percent. And here in California, I just want to say liberals – you could actually lose me. It’s outrageous what we’re paying – over 50 percent. I’m willing to pay my share, but yeah, it’s ridiculous.”

    From what I understand, she uses a vacuum pump to inflate and deflate. Depending on the audience. Maybe you have to use one as well??
    BTW, she got a whopping 3% of the straw poll. Right behind Coulter, Geller, Taitz and Schafly. A real enlightened group there! Good luck with having a social conservative become President. With this group, the rest of the country should just quit (like Palin did) now and avoid being humiliated in 4 yrs.
    BTW, look up the physics of flight. Vacuum is a difference in pressure. But in conservative physics, I guess not. After all, you guys have your own conservative weather channel don’t you?
    However, with the commitment to civility I made last weekend, let me ask you this GMB.
    What is it about Palin’s personality, character, temperament and intellect that causes you to think she’s qualified for a position of national and world leadership. There is a meme on her that is the result of her own creation. Just as there are birthers, there are those who claim she faked a pregnancy. She’s never released her college records or her medical records other than a poorly typed letter on the day before the 2008 election. She was the mayor of a very small town and left it 20 million dollars in debt. She was the governor of a state that is the most dependent on the Fed for income in the country that has a population of city the size of Memphis. She quit as governor in order to pursue personal ambition, she has adult children, none of whom have attended college, one got pregnant at 16 and parlayed that into a semi-career, her husband has never challenged the claims that he is a pimp and she has spent that past 4+ yrs on a tirade of resentment.
    So in all sincerity, why do you think she’s qualified? I mean, some might be able to relate to her; which is fine. But I don’t think it’s in the best interest of the country to have as a leader, someone whose greatest qualification is that they excel at being snarky. It might be good for a few laughs, but laughs are not enough.
    I personally do not want someone “like me” in that position. I want someone who is smarter and has more experience. She had all the “open doors” given to by god the doorman, and she did nothing with them except enrich herself. Not very Christian to be so selfish, is it?
    And now she’s reaping what she sowed. Galatianes 6.7

    • tiredoflibbs March 16, 2013 / 7:43 pm

      Time to give mitchie ANOTHER physics lesson. It seems the one he had before did not sink in. He is still regurgitating the same nonsense as before.

      The EFFECT you are looking for is the Bernouli Principile. This principle was discovered by Daniel Bernoulli, a Swiss scientist, who experimented with fluids in the 18th century. He found a relationship between fluid and pressure. This relationaship is that with an increase in a fluid’s speed, a fluid’s pressure decreases. Also, when the speed of a fluid decreases the pressure of the fluid increases.

      Bernoulli’s Principle is the principle on which the airfoil is based. The airfoil has a curved upper part and a flat lower part. Air travels faster over the upper portion of the wing compared to the speed it travels below the wing. Therefore, there is low pressure above the wing and high pressure below it. The difference in air pressure creates upward net force and lift (not a vacuum). The resulting net force is an example of Newton’s 2nd Law of Motion.

      A difference in pressure is not a vacuum. A difference in pressure is just that a difference in pressure. A VACUUM is space that is empty of matter. The word stems from the Latin adjective vacuus for “empty” or “void”.

      For an airplane to fly it needs air flow over the top of the wing to create lift. If there was a vacuum or void either above or below the wing there would be no airflow over the top of the wing therefore no lift.

      Kindly educate yourself in CONSERVATIVE physics. Since CONSERVATION OF ENERGY is a LAW in physics. Your progressive physics is no where near the truth and you embarrass yourself every time you regurgitate it.

      • tiredoflibbs March 16, 2013 / 10:09 pm

        You fly aircraft for a living but are ignorant of its principles. You may know how to fly, but you don’t know WHY you are flying. I gave you the physicist definition of a vacuum, which is accurate. There is no vacuum anywhere near the airfoil just as you have stated without realizing it:
        “A vacuum is a space that is empty of matter????? Really? What about the molecules that comprise the air that has a lower density above than below on an airfoil?” Actually, I know several pilots that accurately state the actual effect, the Bernoulli’s Principle rather than the dumbed down version you have regurgitated time and again.

        As I said, “For an airplane to fly it needs air flow over the top of the wing to create lift. If there was a vacuum or void either above or below the wing there would be no airflow over the top of the wing therefore no lift.” Do you have a reading comprehension deficiency as well? Obviously. I never said that there was a vacuum above or below the foil as you did. Actually, you claimed a “vacuum below the wing” oh, so many months ago, as GMB so accurately reminded us.

        If you are going to use the terms, at least use them correctly. Once more for the slow witted:
        Bernoulli’s Principle is the principle on which the airfoil is based. The airfoil has a curved upper part and a flat lower part. Air travels faster over the upper portion of the wing compared to the speed it travels below the wing. Therefore, there is low pressure above the wing and high pressure below it. The difference in air pressure creates upward net force and lift (not a vacuum). The resulting net force is an example of Newton’s 2nd Law of Motion.

        You have been educated once more. You should learn the correct terms and the actual physical mechanics behind the airfoil and its affect on airflow and the resulting lift. You don’t want to reveal to your fellow pilots your version of flight mechanics. You will just show your ignorance more and more and prove you are of the “Imbecilic left”.
