Governor Palin Stresses Need for Strong Missile Defense Capability

Responding to the missile test by North Korea, Governor Sarah Palin today reaffirmed                       Alaska’s commitment to protecting America from rogue nation missile attacks.

“I am deeply concerned with North Korea’s development and testing program which has clear      potential of impacting Alaska, a sovereign state of the United States, with a potentially nuclear         armed warhead,” Governor Palin said. “I can’t emphasize enough how important it is that we         continue to develop and perfect the global missile defense network. Alaska’s strategic location               and the system in place here have proven invaluable in defending the nation.”

Governor Palin stressed the importance of Fort Greely and the need for continued funding for the  Missile Defense Agency. The governor is firmly against U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates’   proposed $1.4 billion reduction of the Missile Defense Agency. Greely’s isolated location in               Alaska as well as its strategic location in the Pacific allows for maximum security and development         of the country’s only ground-based missile defense complex.

“Our early opposition to reduced funding for the Missile Defense Agency is proving to be             well-founded during this turbulent time,” Governor Palin said. “I continue to support the            development and implementation of a defensive missile shield based in Alaska. We are                   strategically placed to defend the critical assets of the United States and our allies in the Pacific  Theater.”

Governor Palin also requested stimulus funding for the Kodiak Launch Complex. The Kodiak                 Launch Complex is a commercial rocket launch facility for sub-orbital and orbital space launch          vehicles owned and operated by the Alaska Aerospace Development Corporation, a public              corporation of the State of Alaska.

A breath of common sense. While N. Korea and Iran are increasing their long range missle       and nuclear capabilities Washington politicians are at the Mad Hatters tea party drinking           his kool-aid in an Alice in Wonderland setting. The Obammunistic government of B. Hussein    will destroy this republic from within.
