I have good news for readers today! In a largely-unheralded effort, the USA is close to deploying a sophisticated new anti-missile defense system which can be installed on US warplanes and helicopters to make them almost invulnerable to attacking missiles. The new anti-missile system is surprisingly simple in design and is remarkably compact. It is a new defensive laser system which does not shoot down incoming missiles, but rather “blinds” the guidance systems of incoming missiles with lasers so they cannot home in on their targets.
Indeed, the first prototype of this defensive system for warplanes and helicopters was first produced two years ago in 2008 and the final version of the system is due to be ready in 2011 (next year). If this defensive system is deployed and functional in future years, it could make US warplanes much more survivable in wartime missions. Needless to say, this would alter the balance of power in air combat missions and tilt the advantage in favor of America (and its allies to whom it could ship the same units).
I see other important applications for this new defensive technology. It could be used on civilian aircraft as a defense against terrorist missile attacks, and perhaps it can also be placed on US aircraft carriers and surface warships to “blind” incoming supersonic cruise missiles which would be fired at them by Russia, China and their allies in any future war. [I hope the US Navy is aware of this USAF program.] If this new defensive system can be successfully installed on US aircraft carriers, it would be a “game-changer” in US-Chinese confrontations in the future. This defensive system would make it possible for US carrier task force groups to sail close to South Korea, Japan or Taiwan to defend those nations in the event of a Chinese aggressive action against them. This new defensive weapons system would render American/western forces stronger in any confrontation with the Russian-Chinese-Iranian axis called the Gog-Magog alliance in Ezekiel 38-39. Ezekiel 39:3 prophesies that the “arrows'” (long-range weapons–missiles–fired through the air) of the Gog-Magog alliance will not find their targets, this new American anti-missile system could be a way that the prophecy of Ezekiel 39:3 gets fulfilled.
