On Sept. 1, the Missile Defense Agency released the Ballistic Missile Defense System Draft Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement. Those who made written or oral comments on the BMDS last year should receive a CD in the mail from the Missile Defense Agency...I guess spending most of our money on better, more efficient ways to kill people is a good thing...Much better than, say, trying to improve conditions for human life.
...While people were distracted with the presidential election, the Missile Defense Agency quietly, and still is, preparing to launch lasers and interceptors into space orbit (if there is not a nationwide public outcry). Imagine lasers and interceptors aimed at targets anywhere on Earth!
Since the Kodiak Launch Complex is a research and development test-site location under the Intermediate Nuclear Forces Treaty Memorandum of Understanding, it is highly probable some of the technology hardware, payloads and hazardous materials associated with this “Star Wars” come-to-life program, will be launched from Kodiak. Local residents must get involved and insist a site-specific environmental impact statement is done for Narrow Cape by the Missile Defense Agency.
Also, residents should be very concerned as to what is going to be launched on future missile payloads from Narrow Cape, which requires restricting the public from being within viewing range of the launch complex or using binoculars from a distance.
