Obama to Shut Down Southern Air Defense Systems: “It Will Be Open Season for Terrorists Flying In With Nukes, Low Altitude Missiles, Or Even Full Scale Invasion of America”

air defense systemsSHTF Plan – by Mac Slavo

As the U.S. government continues to expand surveillance and monitoring systems to the tune of hundreds of billions of dollars within the borders of the United States, a recent announcement regarding the country’s southern air defense systems is raising eyebrows.

Our southern border is, in part, protected by the Tethered Aerostat Radar System (TARS), which utilizes moored balloons hovering at about 15,000 feet to identify low flying aircraft and missiles that may penetrate the border and cross into U.S. airspace.

The system is utilized by the U.S. Air Force, North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD),  and U.S. Customs and Border Protection for a number of missions including detection of drug smuggling and preservation of the air sovereignty of the continental United States.

According to Exelis Systems Corporation, the company that built and jointly maintains TARS with the U.S. Air Force, the government has ordered a complete shutdown of Aerostat flight operations:

The government also indicated its intent that aerostat flight operations will cease on March 15, 2013, and that the remainder of the fiscal year will be used to deflate aerostats, disposition equipment, and prepare sites for permanent closure. We are currently reviewing all the details of the RfP and evaluating the possible impacts on the program and our workforce. We continue to communicate with the government on this matter, and we will have more information in the coming days and weeks.

An Exelis employee close to the TARS project had this to say about the closure of the sites:

“Not only will this closure mean hundreds of people will be out of jobs, but it also means our borders will not be safe, especially along the remote U.S. Mexico Border like in Texas.

These defense radars detect low flying aircraft infiltrating our borders.

Without these defense radars, low flying aircraft will go undetected.

It will be open season for any drug/gun/slave smugglers, terrorists flying in with nukes, low altitude missiles, or even a full scale low elevation invasion/attack against America.”

With China actively and openly deploying Russian-made low altitude strategic bombers, designing EMP weapons capable of disabling the country’s power grid infrastructure, and establishing economic zones within the United States, it’s difficult to imagine the motivation behind the move to further weaken U.S. air defenses on the southern border.

If September 11, 2001 was any indication of our air defense capabilities, and considering that any ground invasion of the United States would originate on our southern border, then wouldn’t we want as many early warning systems as possible to be actively protecting our country in these specific areas?

The U.S. government has chosen to shutdown this outward facing surveillance system, and has instead turned the surveillance inward, on the American people.

  1. Makes perfect sense…How else will the mexican drug lords with all of the fast and furious weapons supposed to make it to the states?

  2. Look at the bright side. When they shut down air defense in the northeast, we got an idea where 9/11 was going to happen.

  3. Living near the “remote border” of Mexico in Texas I won’t miss Aerostat one bit, but it is necessary to bring down these balloons so that the Chinese troops inside Mexico (at bases in Chihuahuan and Sonora and Mojave deserts…according to stuff I read in the late 90s put out by various patriot groups) can invade, if indeed this stuff is true. If not, then it’ll just make it easier for Fast & Furious, illegal aliens, and the rest of the criminals to go back and forth accross the border. Maybe, though, it’s to save money…

  4. Again, as I always say, “A warrior who only knows one side, leaves himself open for destruction”. Meaning you throw all of the U.S. military into useless wars overseas (on the offensive) in which the soldiers have no idea what they are fighting for (other than drugs and oil) and leaving the U.S. defenseless and open for invasion in which we are already being invaded with UN Troops, Mexicans, Chinese, Russians and so on and that is the overall plan that our King Obama is trying to implement. The sheeple are just in denial and our country is being taken over and destroyed. There is no more U.S. There is no government. Only patriots hoping to restore what’s left of our God given rights and our God given country.

    This country is going to be swarming with illegals and outlaws like an army of bees that it will be known as the Land of the Lost and the big New World Order base will be at the Denver International Airport where they will be operating their world government underground like a hive. Like another commenter said on another post, I see a “Book of Eli” or “The Road” happening in the near future and even a possible “Terminator” thing going with the drones and their very own, “Skynet” AKA “Stuxnet”.

  5. As they say in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, “Our communications disruption can mean only one thing: INVASION.”

  6. This comes as know shock. talk about a Trojan Horse, was it not last year that Russia sailed one of its Nuclear attack submarines in the Gulf of Mexico totally undetected . This was in Mid 2012 .


    It was not until the Russian vessel left that the U S Navy realized what had happened, now this shutting down of the Southern Air defenses, Dose not anyone see a connection ? Just recently Russian officials Issued a critical ALERT as billions . this ALERT is in response to what Russian Officials believe is a possible terror attack . Russian is advising all its diplomats to leave the U S . before February 12th . As a former Intelligence officer this is a cause for possible alarm …. What is it that the U S Government dose not understand ?
