US to deploy more ground-based missile interceptors as North Korea steps up threats – U.S. News

The new interceptors will be based at Fort Greely, an Army launch site about 100 miles southeast of Fairbanks, Alaska, and are projected to be fully deployed by 2017, Hagel said. The additions will bring the U.S.-based ground interceptor deployment from 30 to 44, including four that are based in California.

That will boost U.S. missile defense capability by 50 percent and "make clear to the world that the United States stands firm against aggression," he said in a briefing at the Pentagon.

Yep. Just like France's Maginot Line "stood firm" against Nazi Germany's aggression.

Maginot Line – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

As such, reference to the Maginot Line is used to recall a strategy or object that people hope will prove effective but instead fails miserably. It is also the best known symbol of the adage that "generals always fight the last war, especially if they have won it".[

Next line to expect: "Who could possibly have imagined…?"

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. WOuld those be the same interceptors that the nitwh chopped out of bush's plan in 2009?

    Why, yes they would.

     

    Can't wait to see the environvental impact statements that come up when "they" decide to put up a couple of sites on the east coast.  The sites will still be in the licensing stage when the missles start flying.
