Why missile defense is important

I've seen video below (out last Feb09) before, but hadn't posted it. Jeff S. over at America's Right has a recent column on it (and this same clip).

Western democratic countries used to be able to count on America as its ally in case of attack. With current PINO? ...Not so much. Just talk to your enemy, they will then love you...

Help other countries in time of warfare? Some would say "oh, it should be the UN's job to help ..." Yep, send in the blue helmet brigade! Really? Did the UN help out in Uganda? ...Not so much.

The UN is corrupt. Hello, remember the "food for oil" and BILLIONS of dollars missing? From the Foundation for Defense of Democracies:

Since joining FDD in 2003, Claudia Rosett, full time director of FDD's Investigative Reporting Project, has generated international headlines with award-winning investigative reporting that revealed the U.N. Oil-for-Food scandal, how the United Nations helps advance North Korea’s nuclear weapons program, the risks of relying on the United Nations to enforce sanctions against Iran for its nuclear bomb program, and a plethora of scandals that have led to a series of convictions of high U.N. officials for bribery, graft, and money laundering schemes.

In 2005, Claudia received the Eric Breindel Award for Excellence in Opinion Journalism. The Breindel Award was established to recognize: "the columnist, editorialist or reporter whose work best reflects the spirit of writings by Eric Breindel: Love of country and its democratic institutions as well as the act of bearing witness to the evils of totalitarianism." Her work has been widely praised.

Rosett revealed how under the Oil-for-Food scandal, a vast program under U.N. supervision, billions in funds intended for humanitarian relief in Iraq ended up in the wallets and secret bank accounts of politicians, businesses, terrorist groups, and Saddam Hussein himself. That is a story that continues to reverberate years after Rosett broke the story.

Yep, the UN is just wonderful...

OK, back to recent missile defense: On Sep 17, 2009 PINO decided to change the missile defense in Poland and Czechoslovakia. Czechs and Poles are nervous though at the prospect of an emboldened Russia. Exerpts from the Atlantic Council:

(PINO) said he was accepting the "unanimous" recommendation of Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates and Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in turning away from the former administration's plan to place interceptor missiles in Poland and a radar system in the Czech Republic.

The former Czech prime minister, Mirek Topolanek, said: "This is not good news for the Czech state, for Czech freedom and independence. It puts us in a position wherein we are not firmly anchored in terms of partnership, security and alliance, and that's a certain threat."

The Polish deputy foreign minister, Andrzej Kremer, saidthat Warsaw had heard from different sources there were "serious chances" the anti-missile system would not be deployed.

Some say Western countries or America should lay down all weapons and sing kumbaya. Where exactly has that worked out well?
Ask protestors who don't have any weapons of their own - ask Iranian civilians how its going over there right NOW without America's help. Instead of promoting freedom and democray across the planet eg in Iran, PINO has decided to SIDE with the A-need-a-job regime and has now even cut off funding for the Iranian human right's watch dog group. Nice! Sorry un-armed Iranians, you lose with PINO in power right now.

Walk tall and carry a big stick so the bullies don't mess with you. That is a better approach, yep. Ask someone who's been bullied. Or... ask a few experts about why missile defense is needed: watch the clip!
