Heritage Foundation Releases Terrifying New Action Film

by Jim Newell

Now that George W. Bush’s war secretary, Robert Gates, is making cuts in missile defense spending, he is officially a San Francisco liberal who wants America to get bombed — nuclear bombed, like on 9/11. Do you want to get 9/11ed again? asks the Heritage Foundation’s new movie, 33 Minutes, where a bunch of old farts say that Iran and North Korea will nuke us with ICBMs in 33 minutes if we make these missile defense spending cuts. The music is scary, very scary, and somewhat Muslin-sounding in the beginning, as we look at New York City. 9/11. [Heritage Foundation via Spencer Ackerman]

Considering that these avaricious dipshits pretty much single-handedly ruined our foreign policy and overextended our military to the point of breaking, I thought a quote from Louise, the black housekeeper in Being There, would be appropriate:

“It’s for sure a white man’s world in America. Look here: I raised that boy since he was the size of a piss-ant. And I’ll say right now, he never learned to read and write. No, sir. Had no brains at all. Was stuffed with rice pudding between th’ ears. Shortchanged by the Lord, and dumb as a jackass. Look at him now! Yes, sir, all you’ve gotta be is white in America, to get whatever you want. Gobbledy-gook!”

Scandinavian Fetus April 8, 2009 at 4:14 pm

Why does the very opening music sound like a Muslim incantation?

Is the Heritage Foundation trying to be multicultural?

“Where do you travel so fast, Chicken Little?” asked Foxy Loxy.
“Ah, Foxy Loxy,” said Chicken Little, “the sky is falling, and we go to tell the king.”
“Do you know the way to the king’s house?” asked Foxy Loxy.
“No,” said Chicken Little.
“No,” said Henny Penny.
“No,” said Ducky Daddles.
“No,” said Goosey Loosey.
“No,” said Turkey Lurkey.
“Then come with me and I will show you,” said Foxy Loxy.
So he took them all to his den, and they were never heard from again.

AngryBlakGuy April 8, 2009 at 4:26 pm

…Unfortunately it seems like they left some stuff out:

1) Iran is 6 years from having ONE nuclear device(not weapon)

2) It will take N.Korea at least 5 years to weaponize their devices

3) Neither country has a viable delivery system for nuclear weapons

4) When and if they do get nukes it will be 1 or 2 every year(if that)

5) They would never use nuclear weapons on the U.S. because they know we would turn their countries into glowing radioactive parking lots.

6) The Heritage Foundation is a bunch of COCK WEASELS!!!

No doubt these old farts get hard-ons fantasizing about the good old days when it was us versus the Reds. And what was it that worked so well (in their eyes) to deter the Russian nucular threat? Our counter threat of an overwhelming response, right? M.A.D., I think was how Dr. Kissinger referred to that strategy. Well that overwhelming response is still sitting in silos and on subs ready to go. Who are the Iranians and Koreans that these Industrial Military Pansies think we need to go and blow another gazillion dollars on sham technology. Why, dear God, won’t any of the Dems take this tactic publicly and call these guys out. They aren’t hawks! They’re afraid of their own shadows. I’m so sick of Republicans getting the upper hand in these debates about military spending. How does being too frightened to risk taking even one little punch make you a fighter?

I really have no idea why SDI isn’t being fully funded, given how spectacular* the tests of the system to date have been.

*by spectacular, I mean all the tests in which they have essentially rigged it in advance to succeed, and have told the system exactly where to shoot, have all still failed.

I’m confused. If defense spending is being cut why is the amount going UP?

Or are they planning on spending the extra money on all the PTSD and TBI soldiers who are not currently allowed to be diagnosed?

So, defense contractors are getting squeezed. Yeah, that’s just awful. Maybe we can tea bag our Congressmen over that atrocity.

So the Heritage Foundation wants us to keep spending billions of dollars a year to keep perennially developing a weapon that would have, at best, a 30 to 1 chance of intercepting the one (1) functional nuclear bomb that Iran or N. Korea might be able to put on ballistic missile with a guidance system that actually works sometime in the next decade or two?

Neilist April 8, 2009 at 5:14 pm

This is Complete And Utter Bullshit.

Anyone who knows anything about “interceptor missile” based ABM technology — which is what they are talking about — knows that (1) it has never worked under even simulated “battle” conditions; (2) it cannot be tested under battle conditions due to the ballastic tracks involved, and other factors that cannot be duplicated; (3) it is inherently on the “wrong” side of the “measures vs. countermeasures” problem; and (4) it is the Mother Of All Boondoggles in terms of paying billions/trillons of dollars for technology that doesn’t, and cannot, work as advertised.

The easiest way to “prove” the above would be to: (1) bar any military officers from working, on retirement, for any contractor, directly or indirectly, with whom they had any pre-retirement involvment; (2) talk only to scientists and/or those who are not economically invested in whatever they are trying to sell.

The list goes on and on and on. The F-22 (another airplane in search of a mission) recently was written about favorably in The Atlantic by a reporter who clearly was utterly ignorant of the subject, and/or wanted to give blowjobs to the “fighter jocks” he was interviewing. James Fallows, The Altantic reporter who usually writes about military matters, and who knows of which he speaks, gave it the most “backhanded” review I have ever read. (“Well, my colleague spells well . . . .”)

Gesh. These people think we’re stupid. The problem is that they are correct.

My, what an AMAZING coincidence: General Obering was in charge of the very program he is now flogging, via something called the “Missile Defense Advocacy Alliance” (MDAA):

Lt. Gen. Henry A. “Trey” Obering (ret.) is the former Director of the Missile Defense Agency, Office of the Secretary of Defense, Washington, D.C. The MDA is Presidentially-chartered and mandated by Congress to acquire highly effective ballistic missile defense systems for forward-deployed and expeditionary elements of the U.S. armed forces. Additionally, the agency will develop options and, if directed, acquire systems for ballistic missile defense of the United States. As the former Director, General Obering was the Acquisition Executive for all Ballistic missile defense systems and programs.

Lt. Gen. Henry A. “Trey” Obering (ret.), a native of Birmingham, Ala., entered the Air Force in 1973 after completing the University of Notre Dame’s ROTC program as a distinguished graduate. He received his pilot wings in 1975 and flew operational assignments in the F-4E. The general was later assigned to the Space Shuttle program and participated in 15 space shuttle launches as a NASA orbiter project engineer and was responsible for integrating firing room launch operations. Other assignments include tours with the Air Force Inspector General, the Defense Mapping Agency and Electronic Systems Center.

Prior to his assignment at MDA, the general planned and programmed 68 joint, Air Force and international programs with a $28 billion budget as Mission Area Director for Information Dominance on the Air Staff.

loudmouthredhead April 8, 2009 at 5:25 pm

[re=284361]Neilist[/re]: If they were even remotely serious about ABM defense, they would use directed energy (i.e. laser/microwave) systems to do it, like Boeing’s airborne laser platform. Someone in the contractor community slept with the right people to convince anyone that bullet-with-a-bullet was the best tech. Now the whole idea sounds stupid thanks to these people.

Origami April 8, 2009 at 5:26 pm

The fact that North Korea can’t even launch a rocket over Japan isn’t really helping these crybabies’ case.

Sometimes I wonder if these people have brains in their oddly-shaped old man heads. Yes, Iran or North Korea will launch a nuclear missile that they don’t have at the US, without warning and for no real reason. Because a small, poor country bombing a great world power is 1. plausible and 2. not going to cause every other country ON EARTH to bomb the shit out of that tiny attacker country. These guys are so with it and rational they should be running the nation’s newspapers.

loudmouthredhead April 8, 2009 at 5:31 pm

[re=284389]Origami[/re]: Maybe just having such paranoid, insane people in our country’s defense community is enough to deter people from launching attacks on us?

[re=284346]loudmouthredhead[/re]: This is the real reason that Republicans will not “negotiate” with other countries. They WANT liberal New York destroyed. Building up nuclear weapons is the ultimately defensive smokescreen alibi that will allow “us” to retaliate once Cosmopolitanism is destroyed.

But no one is claiming that there is anything close to a workable, deployable energy system (because there isn’t). Those missiles in the ground in Alaska are just wasted money. A LOT of wasted money.

If you know anything about the history of high-tech weapons development, you know that there are example after example after example of some “Gee Whiz!” device or system that Simply Never Worked As Advertised.

But so far, the current ABM system is the all-time winner . . . .

(Boy howdy, but this kind of this pisses me off. It always amazes me that the military brass and the contractors can keep a straight face . . . .)
