Gates: U.S. Not Prepared to Respond to North Korea Missile Launch
The defense secretary told "FOX News Sunday" that the United States can do nothing to stop North Korea from thumbing its nose at the international community by test-firing a long-range missile.

Sunday, March 29, 2009


The United States can do nothing to stop North Korea from breaking international law in the next 10 days by firing a missile that is unlikely to be shot down by the U.S. or its allies, Defense Secretary Robert Gates said Sunday.

Appearing on "FOX News Sunday," Gates said North Korea "probably will" fire the missile, prompting host Chris Wallace to ask: "And there's nothing we can do about it?"

"No," Gates answered, adding, "I would say we're not prepared to do anything about it."

Last week, Admiral Timothy Keating, commander of U.S. forces in the Pacific, said the U.S. is "fully prepared" to shoot down the missile. But Gates said such a response is unlikely.

"I think if we had an aberrant missile, one that was headed for Hawaii, that looked like it was headed for Hawaii or something like that, we might consider it," Gates said. "But I don't think we have any plans to do anything like that at this point."

North Korea has moved a missile onto a launch pad and says it will be fired by April 8. Pyonyang insists the missile is designed for carrying a communications satellite, not a nuclear warhead that the secretive nation appears bent on developing.

Gates said while he doesn't think North Korea has the capability yet to shoot off a long-range nuclear-tipped missile, "I don't know anyone at a senior level in the American government who does not believe this technology is intended as a mask for the development of an intercontinental ballistic missile."

Gates conceded that North Korea will likely get away with thumbing its nose at the international community by test-firing the missile. He also said that six-party talks aimed at curbing Pyongyang's nuclear ambitions have been largely fruitless.

"It's very troubling," Gates said. "The reality is that the six-party talks really have not made any headway anytime recently."

Gates also lamented that the missile launch planned by dictator Kim Jong-Il comes just two months after President Obama took office.

"If this is Kim Jong-Il's welcoming present to a new president, launching a missile like this and threatening to have a nuclear test, I think it says a lot about the imperviousness of this regime in North Korea to any kind of diplomatic overtures," he said.

Gates also said Japan is unlikely to shoot down a North Korean missile unless it drops debris on the island nation.

The Obama administration has signaled it wants to scale back the deployment of a missile defense system that was initiated by former President George W. Bush. The White House is also talking about dropping plans for missile defense facilities in Poland and the Czech Republic.

Gates lamented the futility of diplomatic efforts toward North Korea and Iran, another nation with nuclear ambitions. Despite the Obama administration's talk of ramping up diplomatic overtures toward Tehran, Gates was pessimistic about that strategy.

"Frankly, from my perspective, the opportunity for success is probably more in economic sanctions in both places than it is in diplomacy," Gates said. "What gets them to the table is economic sanctions."


Oh and this is my favorite part out of this article.

Shouldn't you be writing a paper, you fucking slacker?

If you're just going to sit there and not do work, come this way and lets go ride.

What really gets me is the statement made by Gates. Well, I guess if it heads toward Hawaii, we might consider it, mmm maybe not. Who the hell cares really?!

There is too short a time frame to prepare for what N. Korea may do if we shot down their missile. There are give or take 20,000 troops within range of Kims artillery. So say we shoot down the missle and immedietly following Kim gives the go to fire (their already aimed) long range artillery. There is not enough bunkers in the world to shield our soldiers from the fallout, let alone the Millions of south Koreans that would be killed instantly, if our missile intercept was the cause of Kim pulling the trigger on S. Korea. There is alot more on the table than just, "we have the capability, were pussies if we don't do it" South Korea would take the brunt of the repurcussions if we make that choice. Just my .02

plausible deniability

Maybe the US "isn't prepared"... but some fluke 'weather phenomena' or 'solar activity' or 'operator error'... or the dreaded 'swamp gas' will take it down

I got $1 that says DARPA uses everything they launch as real life target practice for whatever super secret area 51 style shit they are cooking up.

I really do think that North Korea is the Diet Coke of evil. If they weren't, Bush would have steamrolled their asses years ago.

Actually I think Japan is going to act as a surrogate for us on this one. Word is that Japan is making preparations to try and shoot it down. They have missile interceptors as well. If Japan shoots it down, what is North Korea going to do? Try to invade Japan? Maybe they can do it on a million bass boats.

If Japan is successful, it scares the shit out of NK and China because Japan has the ability to shoot down missiles. It also gives Japan more stature in world defense matters which is something the US and Japan's current Prime Minister have wanted.

The next seven days are going to be fun to watch..

good stuff right here

http://www.missilethreat.com/missile...tem_detail.asp

In December 2005, Japan announced that it would pay one third to one half of the cost of the joint missile defense shield, $1-1.5 billion of the estimated $3 billion total cost.(4) Shortly thereafter, U.S. State Department released an official statement that Japan had become the U.S.ís most significant missile defense partner.(5)



Japanís current BMD role includes the Aegis sea-based missile defense system; land-based Patriot Advanced Capability-3 interceptor missiles; and the new mobile land-based X-band radar.



Aegis Sea-Based Missile Defense


Japan is currently working with the U.S. to develop and deploy the Aegis sea-based missile defense system, which features Standard Missile-3 interceptor missiles deployed on Aegis-equipped cruisers and destroyers. Japan plans to deploy 36 SM-3 missiles bewteen 2007 and 2010 on four Aegis-equipped destroyers: Kongo, Chokai, Myoko, and Kirishima. Japan may also install the missile defense system on two new destroyers that are being built in Nagasaki.

Patriot Advanced Capability-3 Interceptors


Japan plans to deploy 124 Patriot Advanced Capability-3 interceptor missiles by 2010. The first 32 interceptors will be purchased from the United States, designed to be deployed at the military air bases perhaps as early as next year, and the remainder domestically produced in Japan.(8) Japan has 24 air defense artilleries nationwide, and requires at least 30 PAC-3s to provide a basic defense of its airspace. However, to defend against limited, short-range attacks, such as those from North Korea, it requires more than 30 interceptors.(9)



The initial Japanese deployment plan includes Tokyo and six other major urban centers, as well as four military bases in Saitama, Shizuoka, Gifu and Fukuoka prefectures. Sources indicate that each base will each receive four PAC-3 launch systems between 2006 and 2010. There will also be a total of two backup units overall. Of these 18 systems, 15 of them will have eight missiles each.

LMFAO! Who here really believes that the US "isn't ready" to handle a N. Korea missle launch? Please. We'd be on it like white on rice (pun intended). Do you honestly think N. Korea's last missle launches were just failures?
