US National Security & Military Enhancement Proposal 2012-2024

The following plan is meant to enhance US national Security and the US Military posture for the 21st Century. It is based on a major US economic turnaround based on sound Free Market principles geared to US interests, energy independence, a balanced budget, stabilization of Social Security & Medicare & eliminating un-nessecary and wasteful entitlements & entire federal agencies. It is also based,under a conservative leadership in Washington, on adopting lower corporate and individual income taxes so the revenue to the treasury expands and increases significantly which will fuel the funding necessary to remain technologically superior by two generations to any potential enemy on earth, and to be in a position to contain and defeat any outbreaks of agression on a minimum of two major theaters, and one minor theater simultaneously. Follow the links below to each specific area of this far reaching proposal.



No nuclear weapons for Iran by whatever means necessary as quickly as possible. Make officill US Policy the regime change in Iran with the express goal of a secular republican principled representative government in Iran, friendly to the US within five years. Offer whatever aide necessary to secular, republican based citizens in Iran to achieve this goal, including intelligence, recon, logistics, supplies, weapons, and special forces and air support as necessary.
Develop a land based AEGIS Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD) capability using land based, 48 cell, SM-3 VLS missile units to deploy, with security forces, to whichever European and Asian or other allies who desire them and are willing to pay for them and their security and upkeep, including Japan, Korea and the Republic of China (Taiwan).
Urge the UK to build both of its new carriers in the catapault take-off and barrier assisted landing (CATOBAR) configuration, assisting them financially if necessary so that F-18, F-35, E-2D and other aircraft crossdecking can occur.
Assist the Republic of China in building eight modern AIP SS submarines of their own to a similar design as the US Navy will start building (see below).
Ensure that China is aware that the US Navy will enforce freedom of the seas and right of passage through the critical sea lanes in the China and South China Seas to our allies and will brook no bullying of Taiwan, the Philipines, South Korea, Japan or any other US ally in the region. On the other hand, ensure that the Chinese Navy (PLAN) and the PRC understand that we will cooperate with them on mutual interst against pirates, other rogue nations, and on humanitarian endeavors.
Upgrade and expand Guam's docking, repair, air field capacity, and self defense capabilities (its air defense, ballistic missile defense, and sea defenses). Forward deply a full squadron of F-22s, a full squardron of attack submarines and guided missiles destroyers and the necessary logistical assets to support them.
Become completely energy independent by 2020, and grow to be the largest net exporter of oil and energy in the world by 2025. Then inform the Middle Eastern (OPEC) and other nations who have held the US hostage to oil production whose governmental policies are an anathema to US policy, that they can drink their own oil for tea and suppplant them as the oil provider to our allies for cheaper prices, and through more secure sea lane delivery.
Forge closer economic and military ties with India, assisting them to convert from older Soviet block equipment to newer western (US) technologies. Work with them on Free Trade economic initiatives with the idea of a future alliance with them, perhaps inviting them into ASEAN.
Ensure that Pakistan knows that its relationship with the US is dependent upon strengthening its civil liberties, secular republican principles, engagement of the radcial islamics operating within its borders, and helping the US achieve its goal of the elimination of Al Quida and Taliban influence there. Continuously update plans for taking down and neutralizing Pakistan's nuclear weapons should any fundamental islamic regime appear emminent.
Ensure that the Israeli government and people understand that US policy is the protection of Israeli soveriegnty and defensible borders. That no peace with the Palestinians will be possible until the Palestinians completely repudiate Islamic terror and the destruction of Israel and until other Arabic nations (ie. Jordan, Egyt and Syria) agree to swap Gaza territories particularly for lands adjoining the West bank with their own and resettling Palestinians away from Gaza which would become soveriegn Israeli territory. In addition, Jeruselam would become the Israeli capital with the West Bank territories moved back at least 20 km away from Jerusalem.
Bring home regular US troops from foreign bases in nations that will not pay for their support and upkeep and where there is no over-riding strategic US interest in maintaining them there. For allied nations wanting our forces and willing to pay for their upkeep and stationing, and where there is a vested US interest, ensure that said basing is top notch for military and their families, and well secured with strong ROEs to ensure force and base protection.
Station National Guard forces along the Southern US border to act in a over watch capacity, doing recon, intelligence, and, where necessary, direct interdiction of illegal aliens, and particularly drug trafficers in support of the US Border Patrol which will be strengthened, tooled up with more Predator and Global Hawk drones, and will have a double fence, with periodic observation posts and staging areas for equipment and personnel all along the border to close down illegal entry into this nation. Committ one or two divisions of troops to this endeavor.
Develop and build two geosynchronous US Space stations that are joint NASA and US Military stations, with self-defense capabilities, and capable of BMD. Also capable of staging for inter-system missions to the Moon, Mars, the asteroid belts, and ultimately beyond, to Saturn and Jupiter's moons. Target the completion of the 1st station by 2024 and the second by 2028. Target a permanent base on the Moon by 2028, and the first manned mission to mars by 2032.
