Oh, polish your missiles to a mirror shine. Reflect lasers, don't absorb them !!!

Walk softly and carry a big stick!
Warn aggressor nations, if they don't heed the warning use overwhelming numbers of sticks. ;)
If your timing is right a solar storm will coincide.
Also a war should only be fought to win, not to teach.
GOOD LUCK , Earth will need it.

Reminds me of a certain leader's obsession with "sharks with laser beams"... Mentality of these people is about the same.

Honest men with good intentions wouldn't accpet SECRETS nor do they need them

Knowledge is power-
Imagine a nation prepared for a revolution - not knowing that any ICBM launched against any country can be destroyed (OR NOT).
Imagine NOT KNOWING the space based weapons of Raytheon or Westinghouse for example.

This technology is space based- but far more powerful.
No missile cannot be destroyed before during or after launching- from space- anytime-anyplace-any weather.
But never waste FEAR- politics uses it exclusively to (steer) the public-where they want them to think- viz ICBM's.

Oh yay, more drones, terror weapon of the coward. Drones are for suppression of internal dissent. Once you have a totally automated military you can never be challenged.

Until I actually see any of this in verified images or video I would say the US is doing what it does best...Fear Mongering when it's not War Mongering....its all about keeping everyone guessing and afraid and it's all HOT AIR!

if their humanity matched their proficiency at killing people, what a wonderful world it would be


john 30.10.2013 10:24

ahhm i was wondering.. have they also invented some kind of laser that you cannot defend your self against with a simple good quality clean mirror?


漢陰陽 30.10.2013 08:04

do they realize that China is the technological leader in drones, and developing these weapons now is already too late?


gtcr5h 30.10.2013 07:26

They already have that on drones.. that is old.


Terry 30.10.2013 05:10

Put all of them in a FEMA Camp!!!!


Carlos Gomez 30.10.2013 01:30

Really this gets better and better, they spy on everyone and now they have a new toy that supposed to shoot down missiles an whatever else they can target! America's tax dollars at work for the world. Unbelievable.

All the technology and they just can't win fights they start....
More profit for the largest arms sales companies in the US
