Governor Palin’s Nuclear Experience Vs Obama

Has President Obama ever stepped foot on a missle defense base or even seen an interceptor? Here are some interesting facts that you can add to Governor Palin's expertise. Knowing these facts and keeping them in a folder of Palin's accomplishments will be good for the upcoming 2012 election.
Governor Palin and the 50th Law
"It's unbelievable. Unbelievable. No administration in America's history would, I think, ever have considered such a step that we just found out President Obama is supporting today. It's kind of like getting out there on a playground, a bunch of kids, getting ready to fight, and one of the kids saying, 'Go ahead, punch me in the face and I'm not going to retaliate. Go ahead and do what you want to with me.' –Sarah Palin, April 7, 2010, on “Hannity”
Have you read The 50th Law, by Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and Robert Greene? Released in 2009, it is among the best nonfiction books I read that were released last year. The 50th law, if you’re curious, is fear nothing. It’s been my contention that Gov. Palin either intuitively understands the lessons taught in Robert Greene’s series on strategy, or she’s running a parallel set and has become, without knowing it, his most gifted student.
Quote from The 50th Law…The way I learned it, the kid in the school yard who doesn’t want to fight always leaves with a black eye. If you indicate you’ll do anything to avoid trouble, that’s when you get trouble. –Curtis

th Law (HarperStudio 2009)
Educated in Classics, Robert Greene has written four book about strategy: The 48 Laws of Power, The 33 Strategies of War, The Art of Seduction and The 50th Law, the most recent co-written by Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, best known as a rapper whose albums you’ve probably tried to keep out of your children’s hands. They are, among other things, a treasure-trove for geeks like me. 
Governor Palin’s Nuclear Experience:
Alaska is home to the 49th Missile Defense Battalion at Fort Greely which has 26 missilie interceptors, maintained by members of the Alaskan National Guard. All of whom served directly under Governor Sarah Palin’s command. She was in charge of that facility, therefore I’m pretty sure she knows a thing or two about “nuclear issues.”
Then there is A.B. Culvahouse, former counsel to President Reagan, told an audience of Republicans that for McCain, selecting a vice president came down to three questions:
1. Why do you want to be vice president? 
2. Are you prepared to use nuclear weapons? 
3. And the CIA has identified Osama bin Laden, but if you take the shot there will be multiple civilian casualties. Do you take the shot?
“She knocked those questions out of the park,” he said at an event held at the National Press Club by the Republican National Lawyers Association. “We came away impressed", said Culvahouse
It seems the seasoned and knowledgeable Culvahouse thought Governor Palin had the right temperament and enough ‘expertise’ to make important nuclear related judgments.

“I am deeply concerned with North Korea’s development and testing program which has clear potential of impacting Alaska, a sovereign state of the United States, with a potentially nuclear armed warhead,” Governor Palin said. “I can’t emphasize enough how important it is that we continue to develop and perfect the global missile defense network. Alaska’s strategic location and the system in place here have proven invaluable in defending the nation.”

We are reminded of the fact Ft Greely, Alaska is the site of our nation’s only ground based missile defense complex and the fact Sarah Palin has bi-partisan concern for Obama’s reckless attempt to cut funding for the facility by $1.4 billion:
“Our early opposition to reduced funding for the Missile Defense Agency is proving to be well-founded during this turbulent time,” Governor Palin said. “I continue to support the development and implementation of a defensive missile shield based in Alaska. We are strategically placed to defend the critical assets of the United States and our allies in the Pacific Theater.”
Then there is the Kodiak Launch Complex which is a commercial rocket launch facility for sub-orbital and orbital space launch vehicles owned and operated by the Alaska Aerospace Development Corporation, a public corporation of the State of Alaska.

  1. The Kodiak Launch Complex has not had a launch since December 2008. Sarah Palin had nothing to do with its construction or launches. She did tour it once. And no nuclear warheads are stored there or launched from there.

  2. You know, nothing in this post actually gives concrete examples of Palin's experience with nuclear weapons. You have some nice quotes and it is true those facilities are in Alaska, but she has no connection with them otherwise.

  3. Bob Park has written several articles about this system. Google: site: missile
    Here is one from March 21, 2003:
    Undersecretary of Defense Pete Aldridge assured the Senate Armed Services Committee on Tuesday that a rudimentary missile defense in Ft. Greely Alaska would be 90 percent effective in stopping North Korean ballistic missiles. Senators were openly skeptical, and the ranking Democrat, Carl Levin (D-MI), suggested Aldridge go back and look at the numbers. The most notable success of the missile defense was to destroy the ABM Treaty (WN 14 Jun 02), but against ballistic missiles its success rate is only 62% - and that was with homing beacons on the missiles. The Pentagon plans to go ahead and deploy 10 interceptors near Ft. Greely anyway. A 1983 law prohibits deployment of systems that have not been shown to work, but Secretary Rumsfeld argues that missile defense is so important we should deploy while we're testing (WN 28 Feb 03).

  4. FYI, the Kodiak Launch Complex will not be associated with missile defense after Aug 31 2010.

  5. What does she mean by:
    "Alaska, a sovereign state of the United States"?
