US plans to bring into combat readiness missile defense system in Hawaii

20
The idea of ​​bringing the missile range with Aegis missile defense systems in Hawaii on alert to the Pentagon received a new impetus due to advances in the development of nuclear weapons in the DPRK and China, reports Look with reference to Reuters.




"The proposal (to bring the site to combat readiness), which has been discussed from time to time for several years, was given a new impetus after the last nuclear test of North Korea last January 6, as well as in connection with recent successes of China in the development of rocket technologies" - A military source told the agency.

According to him, "to transfer the missile range to the combat readiness of the United States, it is necessary to allocate more than 40 million dollars, which will go, in particular, to send an additional number of servicemen and increase the security level of the complex."

In addition, "the test site will also need to be included in the general missile defense system, after which control over it will be transferred from the US Navy to the appropriate agency in the Pentagon."

Such a move by the Americans caused discontent in Beijing. Zhu Haiquan, a representative of the Chinese Embassy in the USA, called the Pentagon’s intentions counterproductive for bilateral relations.

“Any measures to increase the military potential will only exacerbate contradictions, and will not help solve the problem,” the diplomat said. “China hopes that the country in question will act on the basis of peace and stability in the region and take a responsible and prudent position.”

      Another important topic is the S-400 Triumph air defense system. This year, much that relates to this system has been rethought. In fact, over the year we conducted significant improvements to the S-400 Triumph equipment. All these innovations are already implemented in the prototype, which is also located at the Kapustin Yar training ground.

        - In the USArmy air defense units, the hardest battles will probably unfold with the use of boots, chairs, tables and everything that can be lifted. Still, such a place of service! "Where did you serve?" "In Hawaii ... oh brother, you have no idea how hard it was ... tons of cocktails, hundreds of young female bodies available and undressed, hundreds of hours of doing nothing on the beaches ..."

      The fact is that money is not given to the Merikasos later and not with blood, like other countries. Substituting the entire world monetary system for themselves, mattresses are a fraction of any transaction concluded in dollars. A free budget is easy to spend.

    I think that this missile defense base located on a rock in the middle of the ocean can only protect itself and its surroundings. Those missiles that are designed specifically by the continental United States can take north or south of Hawaii! This Obama is defending his homeland! lol hi

    China hopes the country in question will act based on peace and stability in the region, take a responsible and prudent position

    What can you do, the language of a diplomat is different from the language of a person who sees on what basis of "peace and stability" the United States operates. The Americans will only take the position that suits them. But until they get a good answer. Then they immediately become ready to conduct intelligible negotiations. But it's not for me to teach China, he periodically puts the Americans in their place.

    Urgently need to adapt the pro for tourists, both defense and business. For example, you can attach seat racks on both sides of the radar and let the stations whip tourists around in a circle, such a military ferris wheel ...

    To Ping ..... well, with a kind word and affection you won’t get through, this country didn’t, never will never have a simple human conscience. The killers and rapists don’t suffer from this shortcoming, they will understand when they get a sledgehammer on a dumb American head, that people live in other countries and want to live in peace. If they don’t understand, then there is only one way to rid the world of this leprosy, the Stalin Canal.

    Previously, except for the DPRK and Iran, no one else was mentioned. Now China is mentioned, which to the so-called "outcasts"It does not apply in any way. We are waiting for the moment when they finally admit the obvious and say that missile defense is against Russia, that everyone knows very well.
