To Help Campaign Contributors, Hanabusa Blocks Missile Defense for Hawaii for 6 Years

Star Adv Nov 20, 2017 (with missing details in parenthesis)

…The $700 billion defense policy bill just passed by Congress states that North Korea nuclear and missile tests “constitute a grave and imminent threat” to Asia-Pacific security and calls for expansion of radar systems and a “sequenced approach” to the defense of Hawaii.

The 2018 National Defense Authorization Act, which lays out resource levels and defense policy for the year, reflects language inserted in the bill by U.S. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa that seeks (blocks) the (immediate deplyment of Ageis Ashore, claiming absurdly that it somehow endangers) protection of testing and training operations at the Pacific Missile Range Facility on Kauai.

The Defense Department also will “assess the siting and functionality of a discrimination radar for homeland defense throughout the Hawaiian Islands before assessing the feasibility of improving the missile defense of Hawaii by using existing missile defense assets that could materially improve the defense of Hawaii,” the bill states.

The existing assets are 44 ground-based interceptors mainly in Alaska but also in California that are intended to protect Hawaii and the mainland from North Korean attack.

The measure was headed to President Donald Trump for approval.

A new missile still in development, the Standard Missile 3 Block IIA, is seen as having the ability to knock out at longer ranges North Korean ballistic missiles and is touted as a possible future defense for Hawaii that would be located in the state…..

The suggestion has been made repeatedly to “operationalize” the Aegis Ashore facility intermittently to provide extra defense for Hawaii, but a split exists between advocates of activating the site and those (such as Hanabusa) who think it would interfere with regular missile testing functions, jobs and community access at the Pacific Missile Range Facility.

A medium-range discrimination radar that could cost $1 billion also is being pursued (by Hanabusa) for Hawaii to aid (her campaign contributors such as Lockheed, builder of the HI-HDR) in identifying North Korean warheads. The Missile Defense Agency said in May that initial radar capability is sought by 2023.

(Its OK, we can trust Fat Un not to nuke us for the next 6 years.)
