Heard him, was as good (and scary) as you'ld expect.
Quote from Senator Imhoffe on 4/13/99: " If the American people knew how thin our defences are there would be hysteria in the streets." (NBS nightly news - believe it or not!)
There should be, but people apparently not intertested in their own survival.

Art is a late night radio person. You can start by trying 1100- WTAM one of those 50KW "blowtorches" which reach "38 states and half of Canada" (reasonably audibly as I've listened in Central NY as well as much of Ohio and some other states), or you can go to his website and listen live or in the archives (website is www.artbell.com ).

He brought up two points of info I think are extremely important, and I was unaware of. First the new Topol mobile ICBM the Russians have started deploying is an offensive first strike weapon. It has the capability of hitting the U.S. coming from a southern trajectory, that is to be fired over the South Pole, instead of the North. Almost all of our defensive radars face North watching the Artic pole. Some smaller radars do watch the coast for incoming submarine launched missiles missiles, but they lack the power and range to detect high speed orbital re-entry warheads. By laser blinding our spy sats or loading these mobile missiles onto ships they can achieve complete tactical surprise in a first strike.
Second the Russians have ringed their country with between ten and twelve thousand anti missile missile sites. The missiles use two different warheads and are proximity burst, not hit to kill. The warheads are nuclear with the first salvo engaging while incoming missiles are still in low orbit using x-ray burst to disable. Secondary missiles use nuclear burst in the atmosphere to take out incoming warheads. these weapons coupled with their civil defense shelters and ultra secure command and control bunkers as deep as 1000 ft. virtually assure the Russian government, military, and population would survive a nuclear exchange almost unscathed if they launch first.
