US Ballistic Missile Defense Systems Were Set Up In Alaska To Intercept Possible Attack By 'North Korea or Iran'

The US Missile Defense Agency (MDA) reported completing the installation of the anti-missile systems in Alaska, according to RIA.

“MDA and Boeing installed the 44th interceptor in the mine of the anti-missile system at Fort Greely,” said the director of the agency lieutenant general Sam Greaves.

The interceptor was installed on November 2. The anti-missile systems are set up in the region in order to intercept possible ballistic attack by North Korea or Iran.

Russian experts are doubtful though. According to colonel general Leonid Ivashov, the interceptors in Fort Greely are set up there in order to intercept Russian and Chinese ballistic missiles.

“Iranian missiles won’t fly over Alaska, the same goes for North Korean ones. But the bulk of Russian and Chinese missile trajectories go across the North Pole with Alaska in range,” Ivashov said. He also added that Russia had been developing new winged missiles and methods of overcoming anti-missile systems.

    Iran is half-way around the world from the U.S, instead of hitting the West Coast they can hit the East Coast, or instead fly close to the equator away from Alaska.

  • Garga

    Even IF Iran had ballistic missiles with a range of more than 10,000km and IF Iran was willing to hit the US mainland with no logical or realistic gains, their flight path (as the article says) won’t be over Alaska, even if Iran launches from NE Iran and targets LA.
    This is of course, given the earth is not flat! ;)

    Are they running out of excuses? Hire some creative feminists.

    • Langaniso Mhlobo

      Mr Bird sorry the earth is flat NASA lie and hold every scientist not to reveal the truth including me.

      • Garga

        A very easy way to find out, is to fly directly from let’s say Santiago, Chile or Buenos Aires, Argentina into Auckland, Au or Wellington, NZ.

        Apparently such flight exists by Latam Airlines Group. Their ticket sales system says the trip takes about 12:40′ (11:50′ for return) which seems right for the distance. I guess a trip by that flight can solve this once and for all.

        This is another flight I found. Again, no idea if it’s true. I guess it’s up to FES to evaluate it.

          Thank you but it is really confusing i am having globe but no let me leave that one for you.

          • Garga

            I too have a globe somewhere, the kind with a snowman inside. ;)
            FE is not really my cup of tea.

      Why feminists? That is so old style, the new fad is LGBTQ, feel free to P for pedophiles and Z for zoophiles

      • Garga

        Old style…
        Sigh… I guess old age is becoming more apparent by every passing day… :(

        PS. I still don’t know what does Q stand for.

        • Gary Sellars

          Qataris?

          • Garga

            What a relief… I feared it stands for queer.

          • Boris Kazlov

            It does, also an old term for “gay” degenerates.

      • Ace

        And N for necrophiles.

        • Boris Kazlov

          Zionazimurikans sure love to kill, but not so much die to die for their ridiculous propaganda slogans.

    • Solomon Krupacek

      you are wrong. look at rusian ICNMs. they can hit usa also via south pole. jesus is onanizing on this issue here in this forum. :)))

      • Garga

        Namana?
        What’s an ICNM?

        • Solomon Krupacek

          if you want read my comments, you mast learn to decifre my text :D check the naighbour keys :P

          • Garga

            You kill me Solomon. The question is, is it intentional?

            That’s exactly I invited you to Siberia. I want you to decipher!

          • Solomon Krupacek

            in summer i will go in teheran. i have no fear from you, ayatollah.

          • Garga

            And why should you fear me? I’m your friend, I love you!
            I have an uncontrollable urge to kiss the middle of your bald head. Is it weird?

            You always promise but don’t deliver. Yesterday you promised to go to Siberia with NATO. How can I trust you like that?

      • Boris Kazlov

        Jesus only did that when he was a kid, not after they crucified and he rose from his tomb, his hand just doesn’t fold so well after cuciifixion.

    “Iranian missiles won’t fly over Alaska, the same goes for North Korean
    ones. But the bulk of Russian and Chinese missile trajectories go across
    the North Pole with Alaska in range,” Ivashov said.

    this is typoical socet propaganda. everybody knows, the trajectory will not interfere with alaska. but! alaska is the best place for interceptor weapons against north korean missiles. moscpw wpuld do the same thing.

    better would be to change kim. the world will accept NK nuclear weapons, if there will be normal government. only russia and china can do such changes without destroying of NK.

    • Garga

      Yes! I heard about socet propaganda.
      It’s awful!!

      • Solomon Krupacek

        corrected, ayatollah

    • Garga

      You’re not so bright, are you?

      The best place to intercept a ballistic missile is BEFORE it reaches it’s apoapsis (or apogee, if you prefer that term) not after that which it gains insane velocity.
      That means the logical place to intercept it would be as close as possible to launch site.

      • Solomon Krupacek

        i am enough smart, ayatollah. in iran you did not learn, the defense system has different components, responsible for destroyment of missile in any phase of flight.

        • Garga

          You’re a weird one. Destroyment? Really?
          Truly you are smart. I rest my case.

      • Boris Kazlov

        Correct, that is why NATo is surrounding Russia with anti-missile batteries, in the wet dream of neutralizing a retaliatory strike to a “preventive” first strike

  • John Mason

    Russia and China should consider setting up missile bases in Cuba to protect their territory from possible attacks from Mexico!!!
