By that reasoning, it doesn't exist at all. Despite the test this week. Clearly you inhabit a world of your own where if it doesn't protect you at this very second, it doesn't exist.The technology exists, it needs to be assembled in the proper place to do the proper job. Last time the Mayor looked, there are not ABM defenses protecting Los Angeles.
Care to show me one of those? Are you are just as much of a liar as turtle?So, what this means is that you're incapable of arguing relevant issues and have to pretend all refutations of your incorrect statements are due to the better ideology everyone who opposes you possesses.
That is the most hilarious piece of bull**** I have ever heard. GPS was right to call you a fool. You just argued that a missile going several times the speed of sound through a fairly dense atmosphere, releasing multiple MRVs which then come down through the atmosphere will generate less infrared signature then a bird. That such cooling can reduce the heat generated by such friction to less than the body temperature of a duck, which by the way we can track with infrared. Thanks for more basement fodder. I can't make **** this stupid up.How foolish. Gee, there's no one with any knowledge of cooling that can reduce the temperature of the ballistic missile, by pre-cooling it prior to launch, so thermal signature is weak enough, not to mention SMALL enough, that all-sky scans won't pick it up.
Except that upon launch the temperature increases rapidly. Go look up NASA's infrared pictures of shuttle launches. Man you are ignorant.This is a fairly simple task. Heck, almost all spacecraft launches start with an airconitioned environmetally controlled fairing so the mechanical properties of the structure aren't compromised by even a 10 degree shift from the room temperature it was assembled in.
Not enough to hide its thermal signature. Besides, to actually truly mask it from infrared, you need to perfectly match the ambient temperature. Seriously, I know you are making **** up. And GPS knows it too.Using a bit of liquid argon to cool the warhead to reduce it's thermal signature is simple.
And you still think that the warhead going several times the speed of sound will have no different temperature from the ambient air. Yes, you have no idea what the hell stealth actually is.No, you don't. Stealthing is the process of reducing as much signature as possible in the E-M spectrum to minimize detection by the expected detection technology. The ablative shield will have an outermost coating of a radar frequency absorbent material, and the shape of the blunt re-entry face will be angled to reflect incident radar away from the source. Thermally, the thing will be cooled.
No, if you weren't a compulsive liar like Turtledude, you would recognize we should spend our money on actual threats.Yup, which means, according to you, that the United States should just bend over and pull it's cheeks open wide.
It's amazing just how much of a hypocrite you are. It's okay to have industrial welfare, but spending on education?! EVIL.What it really means is that there are areas requiring further research to improve the ABM system's effectiveness.
And that actually addressed my point how? Oh wait. It didn't.Well, the Mayor isn't stupid enough to think that a warhead in re-entry, which means it's less than 30 seconds from it's target, can be stopped. The Mayor kind of figured you'd think that, though.
So you actually do use Google from time to time. Congratulation. You still have failed to actually address my argument (as usual).But, those things are obvious only to persons who can think about the issue clearly.
Indeed, hence why you are becoming the butt of jokes around here.Well, that first part is evident.
More right-left lobe misfiring? You claim it was never tested and then point of a period of time where it was tested. Methinks you need to see a neurologist.MAD worked for one reason. It wasn't put to the test. There were two players at the MAD game, and neither player saw any way in which their first strike could decapitate their enemy's nuclear response.
I see you are ignoring my example proving you wrong eh? Typical hack.MAD won't work in a world where insane jihadists run countries or have access to national resources and assets, as is the perpetual risk in Pakistan and soon Iran.
By the way, cherry picking my post doesn't mean I forgot what I argued.
I see, you like the rest of the cowards, ran away from pointing out an example where the Mullahs actually acted irrational. Typical hack.
Since when did protesting = nuking America? You change your argument so much it's hard to keep track of what you originally argued. Typical hack.Absolutely. It would be our **** landing in their front yard. Only a fool is going to think there won't be third parties, significant third parties, chiming in and protesting US action. Welcome to the real world. It'll bite you in the ass if you ignore it or pretend it isn't what it really is.
You do realize you are arguing that they would defend a nuclear aggressor? WOW. That's a new level of crazy.
So my challenge to you for showing a single example where the Mullahs risked their power is invisible to you? Perhaps you need to change the background color to something different from your font color? Coward.So, what the Mayor said is invisible to you? Perhaps you need to change the background color to something different from your font color?
Nothing which proves you get your facts from crazy land.nd only the president can issue that order.
Still nothing to support the truly asinine (even for this place) argument that Russia would nuke the US for defending itself. Man I'm going to have fun with that argument.
How is it reality that Russia will defend a nuclear aggressor?If you wish. Since the Mayor won't be seeing, have fun. Are all you liberals so blind you can't see reality?
The impurity residue will do it. oh wait. You ignored that part of my earlier post because you can't address it, much like the rest of my post. Pathetic.Someone launches a missile from a tramp freighter in the middle of the Pacific Ocean and abandons the ship to sink, and you think it's guaranteed to be traced to the nation of origin?
Since when did satellite photos of missiles disappear when the missile is used? Oh wait. They don't. That's just inconvenient for you so you ignored that in my post. Pathetic.Funny thing about missiles, too. The rockets are incinerated on re-entry and finding the bits is rather difficult. The bomb, of course, self-destructs.
Seriously. Do you anything of substance or shall I join GPS in laughing at you?
