Wouldn't you think the deflector under the missile would change its launching trajectory ?

Deactivated within 3 years of activation, not very cost effective.  The government is selling deactivated missile sites pretty cheap but need a lot of work and more $ to fix up.  Plus most of them are still in high priority target areas.

I wonder if 3 years service is standard or if it was decommissioned early?

Who we are

We are a community of concerned patriots who are not overly confident in the current direction of our society, from the wild political climate to what can be summed up as a lack of morals or a complete void of integrity and pretty much a blatant disregard of respect..... Respect for our past, respect for our future and respect for each other. In order to protect our constitution and life as we know it, we decided to not be the silent majority anymore and pull our selves up by the bootstraps and make the world a better place. This website is to unite people like us, people who want to make a difference ... and do it the right way, Little did we know that in doing so we would create the number one militia community online. Here we are. Enjoy.
