Vice President Biden is loved by the country. He is great. He is also very good at governing.

If the Vice President runs in 2016 for President, he'll seek matching funds without huge private money to legitimately make a statement about where politics should be and that is LOCAL.

The Avenger?

The Avenger to the left.

Below right is an Intercontinental Ballistic Missile.

What is the difference?

The U.S. (click here) may be forced to withdraw troops completely from Afghanistan by the end of the year. That’s bad news if you’re the CIA and your lethal drone flights over neighboring Pakistan rely on the close proximity of Afghan airstrips.
Not surprisingly, the defense industry has already produced a solution: a new jet-powered drone that can range 1,800 miles from the nearest base....

The difference between an ICBM and The Avenger is about 1600 miles.

February 24, 2014
General Atomics-Aeronautical Systems Inc.,(click here)  Poway, Calif., was awarded an $18,109,374 modification (P00014) to contract W58RGZ-12-C-0057 for changes to the Universal Ground Control Station. The company also was awarded a $76, 215, 685 modification (P00015) to the same contract to change the Gray Eagle Portable Ground Control Station to a Mobile Ground Control Station. Army Contracting command, Redstone, Arsenal, Ala., is the contracting activity....

The Avenger is a jet. It can travel 1800 miles without refueling. An ICBM travels up to 3400 miles to deploy it's nuclear warheads.

Supposedly, according to this reporting even after the USA leaves Afghanistan the USA will continue to send Avengers to Pakistan and Afghanistan to kill people. So, we really aren't leaving Afghanistan. The USA will continue it's presence in Afghanistan and run missions but without living and breathing people.

Welcome to the first computer war by the USA. Never say surrender. Never admit the USA does not own the world. With a drone that flies at 500 miles per hour and a full one third into the Stratosphere the world now has a high atmosphere police officer. 

I hope someone shoots it down.

This is called nuclear proliferation. The drone flies nearly half the distance as an ICBM and when stationed in Europe puts it as a direct threat to nations in Asia, including China.

But, why should that be a surprise, the USA now parks missile ships in European waters and star war satellite triangulation hardware within the definition of 'in defiance of the ABM Treaty."

Non-proliferation is suppose to REMOVE the threat of nuclear deployment to Russia. These ships in Europe and this monster breaks that agreement. Just that simple.

Oh, the Avenger doesn't have the capacity for deployment of nuclear missiles? Who is kidding who? 

The distance from Moscow to Athens is 1367 miles.

The distance from Rome to London is 1479 miles.

The distance from Moscow to London is 1589 miles.

The distance from South Korea to China is 1315 miles.

The distance from South Korea to Russia just out of the reach of The Avenger at 2,020 miles.

Non-Proliferation is to REMOVE the threat, not pretend it is not there simply because the vehicle and it's location has a different name.

The ABM Treaty states the atomic/nuclear armed ICBM can't be carried by submarine. Now, aircraft carriers need to be included in the treaty. 

What does Washington and the Pentagon think it is doing? Do they actually believe this is not escalation of a threat to the citizens of the USA? If that is the case, then we need to encourage retirements and restaff the the hierarchy that actually understand what treaties mean and can even read them. 

And a NEW requirement for the military; they have to be able to think. Why? Because if they were thinking I would not have to write this.
