Missle Defense

Pacific Ocean - July 30, 2009
The Aegis-class destroyer USS Hopper (DDG 70) launches a standard missile (SM) 3 Blk IA during exercise Stellar Avenger, successfully intercepting a sub-scale short-range ballistic missile launched from the Kauai Test Facility at the Pacific Missile Range Facility, Barking Sans, Kauai, Hawaii. This was the 19th successful intercept for the Aegis BMD program in 23 at-sea firings, including the February 2008 destruction of a malfunctioning satellite above the earth's atmosphere.

And, the current administration is cutting funding for this successful program,
which is necessary to our defense.
Write your Congressman/Senators now.

I happen to see a piece on the airborne laser (ABL)this weekend... a program that was due to go into initial flight testing early next year... until the 0 admin cut the funding back to "R&D" only status. More stupidity...
