MMM, unproven Missile defense? President Obama I think not. Please do not cut this program, as you can see this is how we will need to protect ourselves if any of these dictators or terrorist complete their Russian led nuclear capabilities. Hopefully Mr. Gates will talk you out of this cut along with the 25% military equipment cut.

Remember when the Democrats and other Liberals ridiculed Reagan for suggesting a missile defense system was feasible?

"Advisers to U.S. President-elect Barack Obama have said he favors missile defense in principle but the program, a flagship policy of the Bush administration, will face more scrutiny after he takes office."

MILITARY: Look Mr. Obama, the missile testing worked! We can now defend the USA and ourselves.(proud look on their faces)

OBAMA: Ummm...(smirky look) good but I have to scrutinize this program. I think you spend a lot of money on this and I need that money right now to spread around. As a start, I will check to make sure that all the missile parts are made from China.

Okay, now stop 19 Saudi Arabians with boxcutters and we'll be impressed.

The Missile Defense System is one of President Bush major successes in his war against the evil enemies including radical Islamic regimes led by Iran.
The new missile defense system is capable of saving the lives of tens of million Americans, Europeans and Jews from the axis of evil of Russia-Iran-Syria that are rushing forward with nukes and dirty bombs against Israel, US troops and NATO.
The great and successful high technology anti-missile system gives huge advantage to US, NATO and Israel over the axis of evil which makes Putin and Ahmadinajad very angry as being such a soar losers.
Ahmadinajad is scared from the possibility that his nukes will be launched from Iran will be destroyed by the US anti-missile systems and will create havoc and destruction in Iran.
However, the new Islamic rooted Messiah Barack Hussein Obama who supports the Islamic terrorists in Gitmo and their right to kill US troops and then walk free is the hope of the socialistic Russian aggressive regime of Putin and the Iranian regime of Ahmadinajad as the pacifist pro-Islamic liberal loser Barack Hussein Obama will ‘kill’ the US anti-missile systems only to show his support of Putin and Ahmadinajad's aggression which proves that he is such as great US president for the Islamic world.
