Why consider US missile program cuts now? AK military program helps secure US. Now is NOT time to cut our defense.
This is a good point, albeit an unfortunately obvious one to have to make. Since it’s likely that all we can expect in the form of direct action from President Obama’s beloved “international community” (which is why we elected an “international community organizer”) is the obligatory “strongly worded letter,” the only thing that might save us is missile defense, which Obama wants to cut.
Obama has proven to be pragmatic for selfish political reasons on Gitmo, CIA files, detainee photos and other issues, so my guess is he ultimately flip-flops on missile defense and nukes.
As soon as Obama realizes that his exclusive national defense policy of “unclenching the fists of those who disagree with America” was a bad idea (mainly because it could get millions of registered Democrat voters killed before the next election), we may get a shield — if it’s not too late already.
But maybe we won’t get a shield, even if the president wants one — we’re out of money.
