Obama to Shut Down Southern Air Defense Systems: “It Will Be Open Season for Terrorists Flying In With Nukes, Low Altitude Missiles, Or Even Full Scale Invasion of America”


1a

(SHTFPlan) -As the U.S. government continues to expand surveillance and monitoring systems to the tune of hundreds of billions of dollars within the borders of the United States, a recent announcement regarding the country’s southern air defense systems is raising eyebrows.

Our southern border is, in part, protected by the Tethered Aerostat Radar System (TARS), which utilizes moored balloons hovering at about 15,000 feet to identify low flying aircraft and missiles that may penetrate the border and cross into U.S. airspace.

The system is utilized by the U.S. Air Force, North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD), and U.S. Customs and Border Protection for a number of missions including detection of drug smuggling and preservation of the air sovereignty of the continental United States.

According to Exelis Systems Corporation, the company that built and jointly maintains TARS with the U.S. Air Force, the government has ordered a complete shutdown of Aerostat flight operations:

The government also indicated its intent that aerostat flight operations will cease on March 15, 2013, and that the remainder of the fiscal year will be used to deflate aerostats, disposition equipment, and prepare sites for permanent closure. We are currently reviewing all the details of the RfP and evaluating the possible impacts on the program and our workforce. We continue to communicate with the government on this matter, and we will have more information in the coming days and weeks.

An Exelis employee close to the TARS project had this to say about the closure of the sites:

“Not only will this closure mean hundreds of people will be out of jobs, but it also means our borders will not be safe, especially along the remote U.S. Mexico Border like in Texas.

These defense radars detect low flying aircraft infiltrating our borders.

Without these defense radars, low flying aircraft will go undetected.

It will be open season for any drug/gun/slave smugglers, terrorists flying in with nukes, low altitude missiles, or even a full scale low elevation invasion/attack against America.”

With China actively and openly deploying Russian-made low altitude strategic bombers, designing EMP weapons capable of disabling the country’s power grid infrastructure, and establishing economic zones within the United States, it’s difficult to imagine the motivation behind the move to further weaken U.S. air defenses on the southern border.

If September 11, 2001 was any indication of our air defense capabilities, and considering that any ground invasion of the United States would originate on our southern border, then wouldn’t we want as many early warning systems as possible to be actively protecting our country in these specific areas?

The U.S. government has chosen to shutdown this outward facing surveillance system, and has instead turned the surveillance inward, on the American people.

  2. Perfect system to take the place of balloons. The ratheon .stalled missile system IHAWK. Fielded in 1956 it was the first line of missile defense for the US in Florida, Germany and Korea. Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and Israel also utilized this system. With a 98.6% kill ratio it was rhetorically system that completely destroyed the Egyptian Air Force during the war in the late 60’s. HAWK is the acronym which stands for Homing All the Way Killer. Motto if HAWK UNITS WORLD WIDE FOR OVER 40 YEARS……..IF IT FLIES, IT DIES!!
    The last HAWK UNIT operational in the US was transference from Homestead Air Force Base in Florida and relocated to Ft. Bragg, NC in 1979-80. Ever wonder why no one ever tried to fly across our southern order? That’s why!
    Call me just an old 24C
    IHAWK FIRING SECTION MECHANIC!

  4. This is why Obama won. You people are morons spouting moronic bullshit that you know nothing about and never bother to educate yourselves to see through a bullshit article meant to rile you up. Stop being the reason the republican party is a shadow of its former self. Extremism is not the answer.

    • So we are the reason Obama won? It wasn’t the traditional methods and destructive ways of pushing out a party that endorses liberty? Screwing off the people with core beliefs? Shut up dude. You are an idiot. Come with something.

  5. In regards to impeachment & treason, please. This is all ordained & biblical IMO, not preaching. But if you’re a Christian look at the national evils we have accepted & tolerated in the name of “Political Correctness”. I fear our great nation has been infested with communist & socialist Marxist satanic scum for this very purpose. The road is being paved for the fulfillment of scripture and Obama has “lined” the pockets of the government with his cronies to make this easy. They’re relying & playing on our patience, faith, & trust not only in God, but also in our misplaced trust that the government still has the peoples best interest in mind & that such things as checks and balances still work. Wouldn’t surprise me one bt for him to off all of the Republicans and anyone else on Capitol Hill that is against him. Go on YouTube and search for “Obama Dreams” and see how many people of all races have had disturbing almost prophetic dreams about him. This as nothing else in our existence is not happening by coincidence.

  6. This is perfect warfare strategy. He knows that the south is among the most heavily armed and would pose a great threat and resistance. I.T.E.T. (In The Event Thereof) I foresee a false flag attack of some sort to smokescreen these actions if they happen, We’ll know by 15/03/2013. Those he and his masters know that will be the greatest threat they will take out or attempt to with least casualties on their part, i.e. EMP’s bio/chem, doubtful nuke but not illogical considering their deranged mentality and soullessness.

  7. I constantly hear how congress does nothing. Did you know that the Senate is filled with democrats that will not pass anything congress submits? Seriously people Republicans make up 1/3 of a 1/3 of government. They can’t do shit. We the lemmings need to get off our lazy asses and get involved.

  8. Our house of Republicans is weak. Boehner should have been kicked to the curb. Obama will never compromise on any issue. No budget passed in over 3 yrs. Obama is an illegal serving as our president. GOP allows this & all his criminal acts (which are endless). Obama, is a criminal is every sense of the word. He WILL DESTROY THIS COU NTRY…that is is goal!!

  9. THERE GOES AMERICA AS WE KNOW IT? TIME FOR IMPEACHMENT A.S.A.P………..THIS IS SO WRONG, YET CONGRESS DOES NOTHING………

  10. Tethered balloons?!? Surely this is technology that is ready to be retired anyway, I should hope. The Smithsonian is probably preparing a display at the moment.

    • This action makes sense. Obama has sent 20 F-16 Fighter Jets to Egypt, at taxpayers expense. Why arm the enemy if our detection devises are active? No wonder America is not mentioned in end-time prophecies. . . . .

      • I believe America is mentioned just not by name. Can’t give scripture just a gut feeling u know? Look up “The Harbinger” on YouTube… great correlation btwn OT Israel and America being the only 2 real nations founded and dedicated to & by God. Give the Muslim Brotherhood 20 F-16’s God knows how many Abrams supplied and funneled small arms through Benghazi and now wants ours and then this? Hrmm go figure.

  13. We are witnessing the planned theft of our weapons from citizens, the dismantling of our military, and now the shut down of an important part of our early warning system. What other purpose could there be in these moves if not to leave us incapable of defending America? If this is not treason, then there never will be a case for treason.

    • Mike, it couldn’t have been said any better. The people of American need to united and stop what is going on in our country today.

  14. This action would be An action tantamount to an abject treasonous act. Or so it would seem to me.
    The Constitution sets forth the requirements for charges of treason in any impeachment case.

  15. Get ready for the missals and EMP’s. OBAMA IS TRYING TO KILL US and destroy our country. What is the congress doing about this. It’s time to impeach him and put his ass in jail. He is an enemy of this country.

  16. If that is the case, then the Southern States need to join there
    own union, ASAP. We really do not need Obama or Washington,
    to be successful.
