Remember Liberals Laughing at "Star Wars?"

President Reagan proposed a missile defense system (SDI) during the cold war and the liberals in the media and the Democratic Party couldn't wait to attack it as too expensive and something that would not work. They worked overtime to try to ridicule President Reagan.

Well (as Reagan would say with a tilt of the head), the facts are that liberals were not very good at dealing with the Soviet Union and were perfectly willing to take away any defense advantages that the U.S. might have. As it turned out, Reagan was right and the liberals were wrong, as Reagan's strategy ended the cold war.

Now the left has something else to be unhappy about. Another missile defense test was successful! Why, it must kill them to think that we have been working on Reagan's long-term plan, which offers additional hope for protection against new nuclear threats from Iran and North Korea and, oh yes, China, for whom we have President Clinton to thank for upgrading their missile guidance systems with our secrets to hit us.

Here's the bad news for the left and good news for the intelligent.

U.S. missile defense test successful

VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. - A ground-based missile successfully intercepted a target missile Friday in a test of the nation's defense system, the Missile Defense Agency said.

An intercontinental ballistic missile interceptor blasted out of an underground silo at Vandenberg Air Force Base shortly after 1:15 p.m., and tracked a target missile that had lifted off from the Kodiak Launch Complex in Alaska, the Boeing Co. said in a statement.

The Missile Defense Agency said initial results show the interceptor's rocket motor system and kill vehicle performed as planned. Boeing said the warhead was tracked, intercepted and destroyed.

It seems that the Democrats and liberals have been against a lot of good military ideas in the past. We just keep proving them wrong and will continue to do so. This test is more good news for us.

Awesome! Of course going toe to toe with the Ruskies in will require that THOUSANDS of missles be shot down. Good luck with that...

Moose shows that liberals are still at it. So, let's give up a few cities if we can't protect them all. Too bad for them. And, let's ignore our counter-strike ability against Russia to limit an all-out attack from them. And forget that the defense system also protects us from lesser threats with just as potent but fewer weapons--like Iran. It's no wonder that Americans don't trust the Democrats on matters of national security.

Actually, it would be thousands of warheads, not thousands of missles. What percentage of the missles could be shot down before the multiple warheads are deployed. Who knows? I think we'd be giving them more than a few cities, though. The smart money is still on diplomacy.

Diplomacy works only if backed up with might. So, Moose, should we scrap the missile defense program?
