The Case for Missile Defense:
The film 33 Minutes: Protecting America in the New Missile Age (2009) awakens Americans to the sobering truth that in 33 minutes or less—the time it takes to play a few innings of baseball—a ballistic missile fired at the United States could reach its target. If that missile came tipped with a nuclear warhead, it would change the nation irrevocably, forever.
Americans know very little about this grave threat and what their government needs to do to protect and defend the United States and its friends and allies from the proliferation of the deadly duet: ballistic missiles and nuclear weapons.
The plain-spoken, nonpartisan documentary 33 Minutes explains the danger, the role of missile defense, and the next steps for building the kinds of defenses that will keep the United States a safe, free, and prosperous nation in the face of one of the 21st century’s greatest challenges: the threat of missile attack.
In 60 minutes, 33 Minutes asks and answers the vital questions that Americans have about the necessity and efficacy of missile defenses. Behind the production of this documentary, however, stands decades of research by The Heritage Foundation, a nonprofit, nonpartisan, Washington-based public policy institution, working in conjunction with partners and advocates for national defense in academia, government, Congress, and the private sector.
This coalition of concerned Americans has done much to advance the science and policy that could enable the United States to build comprehensive missile systems capable of safeguarding the nation for decades to come.
The collection of readings presented here brings together some of the nation’s premier experts on this issue. In these concise essays, national security specialists, foreign policy experts, scientists, and historians explain the complicated issues behind the case for missile defense in a clear, direct manner and offer Americans straightforward answers to such vital questions as:
- What is the threat?
- Why does America need missile defenses?
- What do we have?
- What do we require?
- Will missile defenses work?
- Can they be defeated?
- What are the costs and consequences of failing to act?
The authors bring their own unique experiences and expertise to the task of making the case for missile defense. Many have extensive academic credentials and a wealth of real-world operational experience. All contributed their time and talents without compensation to advance the cause of protecting America in the new missile age.

About 33 Minutes Protecting America in the New Missile Age:
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 of 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.

Would China’s Secret Missile Blast U.S. Back To The Dark Ages?–Posted on Western Journalism-By FLOYD BROWN-On March 3, 2014:
Lately, we’ve been focusing on threats to security and global hot spots. And that means the week would be incomplete without a discussion of China’s so-called “carrier killer.”
You see, China has developed a missile that travels at Mach 10 and is intended to stymie America’s ability to project forward her naval forces around the globe. The carrier killer is part of the latest strategic thinking in China’s anti-access area-denial, or A2-AD, strategy.
Whenever the United States senses a threat, it sends a flotilla of ships to the area. The navy typically deploys a Carrier Strike Group (CSG) consisting of one aircraft carrier, one guided missile cruiser (for air defense), two Light Airborne Multipurpose System (LAMPS) capable warships, and one or two anti-submarine destroyers or frigates.
The aircraft carrier basically functions as a fully movable airfield. With an entire air wing on board, it can use the advanced fighters to project force thousands of miles inland from nearly any body of water.
But the carrier killer, officially known as the Dong Feng 21D (DF-21D), changes all of that. This ground-based missile is intended to thwart all of the United States’ current missile defenses.
Unfortunately for us, the DF-21D would threaten a U.S. carrier battle group while on its way to a region… and long before it was ever in position to fight.
Bats to the Rescue
So how can the United States possibly combat such a strategy?
This is where bats come into play. A company called Prime Solutions Group, in Goodyear, Arizona, is building models for the Missile Defense Agency based on the echolocation system employed by bats.
Using mathematical models of a group of bats flying into a swarm of mosquitoes, this firm is building algorithms that deal with the probabilities of incoming ballistic missiles.
Intelligent agents scan the sky for objects of interest and then interact with each other, sharing the data they’ve gathered. The combined data allows the defensive agents to converge on the missile just like a swarm of bats converging on their prey.
This technology is critical to the future of the U.S. military. Without it, the United States would be denied access to certain critical theaters and would likely be faced with the prospect of mass casualties.
And that’s the very last thing any American wants. Our sailors and Marines are an extraordinary group of young people. Several years ago, I was flown to and landed on the deck of the USS Ronald Reagan, one of our modern carriers based out of San Diego, California. I spent 24 hours with the young sailors and Marines on board.
They deal with multi-billion-dollar weapons systems and aircraft with incredible ease. To watch jet aircraft land on a carrier at night in almost complete darkness is beyond amazing.
The aircraft carrier has become the symbol of American power across the continents. Our enemies fear them, and our allies welcome them. But without focused and original thinking, they will be relegated to the history books by China’s newest missile.
And this is just one of many challenges facing America today. We live in a changing and dangerous world. The question most prevalent in my mind is: Are the leaders in the Capitol up to the task of protecting and enhancing our military capabilities going forward?
