Protecting America in the New Missile Age
While this film, which was produced by the folks at the Heritage Foundation, has been out since February of this year, this is the first I’ve heard about it. I’m guessing that many of you are seeing this for the first time as well. And this is just an extended trailer.
The official description from the Heritage site:
33 Minutes: Protecting America in the New Missile Age is a one-hour documentary produced by The Heritage Foundation that tells the story of the very real threat foreign enemies pose to every one us. The truth is brutal – no matter where on Earth a missile is launched from it would take 33 Minutes or less to hit the U.S. target it was programmed to destroy.
Nuclear proliferation around the world, and the threat of a ballistic missile attack of some kind is mounting as more and more countries obtain nuclear technology. The ongoing threat toward America is also accelerating due to the fact that there are many rogue nations and terrorist organizations who either have or are seeking ballistic missiles and nuclear technology.
The challenges of protecting America and its citizens for President Obama’s administration are great. Featuring rare footage and in-depth interviews with leading experts in the field, 33 Minutes is the definitive documentary exposing the untold vulnerability we all face and the action plan necessary to revive a strategic missile defense system that America uniquely can develop, maintain, and employ for its own defense and the peace-loving world’s security.
Regardless of whether you’ve seen the extended trailer before, whether you’ve seen the entire thing, or whether you–like me–are seeing it for the first time, consider it alongside what we saw last year with regard to our president’s goals of disarmament:
