Why Is The Public Not Outraged About Russian Nuclear Weapons In Cuba?
Exelis Systems Corp., the company that built and maintains the system, the
government has requested the program be shut down on March 15. Following is the

to continue to provide the outstanding TARS support that has become the Exelis
hallmark, while allowing the company and the government time to continue
discussions on how to best support the customer, the program, and our
workforce. We will provide regular updates as we know more. Should you have a
specific question, please address them to Tim Green, Program Manager.
“(T)he system is capable of detecting low altitude aircraft at the radar’s
maximum range by mitigating curvature of the earth and terrain masking
limitations. TARS provides a detection and monitoring capability along the
United States-Mexico border, the Florida Straits, and a portion of the
Caribbean in support of the Department of Defense Counterdrug Program… In
addition to its counterdrug mission, TARS surveillance data also supports North
American Aerospace Defense Command’s air sovereignty mission for the
continental United States.”
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.”
“In 2001 I, as the President of the Russian Federation and the supreme commander, deemed it advantageous to withdraw the radio-electronic center Lourdes from Cuba. In exchange for this, George Bush, the then U.S. president, has assured me that this decision would become the final confirmation that the Cold War was over and both of our states, getting rid of the relics of the Cold War, will start building a new relationship based on cooperation and transparency. In particular, Bush has convinced me that the U.S. missile defense system will never be deployed in Eastern Europe.
The Russian Federation has fulfilled all terms of the agreement. And even more. I shut down not only the Cuban Lourdes but also Kamran in Vietnam. I shut them down because I gave my word of honor. I, like a man, has kept my word. What have the Americans done? The Americans are not responsible for their own words. It is no secret that in recent years, the U.S. created a buffer zone around Russia, involving in this process not only the countries of Central Europe, but also the Baltic states, Ukraine and the Caucasus. The only response to this could be an asymmetric expansion of the Russian military presence abroad, particularly in Cuba. In Cuba, there are convenient bays for our reconnaissance and warships, a network of the so-called “jump airfields.” With the full consent of the Cuban leadership, on May 11 of this year, our country has not only resumed work in the electronic center of Lourdes, but also placed the latest mobile strategic nuclear missiles “Oak” on the island. They did not want to do it the amicable way, now let them deal with this,” Putin said. Source: http://english.pravda.ru/russia/politics/01-08-2012/121804-russia_army_base-0/
