Kemen COMMENTARIES See MISSILE, Page 7 Money for missile defense is well spentI watched Hardball with Chris Matthews Tuesday night and the discussion concerned military members who have been charged with the alledged rape and murder of a young Iraqi girl and her family. In the segment, the reporter used the words ‘American atrocities’ no fewer than eight times. He was referring to the above mentioned incident, the Haditha ‘massacre’ and other so-called ‘atrocities’ supposedly committed by American troops in Iraq. When I arrived at the Hourglass of ce Wednesday morning, I checked our e-mail. We receive military wire news from which we derive the casualty lists we print and other items pertaining to the services. I felt sick to my stomach when I read a wire story that a video of the horrible slaughter of those two American Soldiers a few weeks ago has surfaced. According to the notice, the video shows the mutilated bodies and the severed head of one of them being held up for the camera. I won’t By Dr. Bill Cantrell Hourglass reader from Ft. Worth, Texas At the start of World War II in 1939, U.S. strategic air power consisted of nineteen poorly equipped heavy bombers. America was still protected by vast oceans which gave her precious time to prepare for war, both materially and psychologically. By late 1945, Gen. Curtis E. LeMay had come to the realization that the next war would be of a totally different nature. Once a war started there would be no time for a military buildup over a period of some years. He realized that a rational aggressor nation would not dare to attack the United States if the country were fully prepared for war at the onset. But he also knew that “No air attack, once it is launched, can be completely stopped.” This was the beginning of deterrence, and later, the arms race during the Cold War. Much has been made of wasteful military spending, especially during the cold war years. No one would argue that the Department of Defense should be wasteful with taxpayer dollars, but much of the argument centers around unrealistic expectations. Although a large budget is involved, the nation’s defense is simply not a commercial enterprise, and it cannot be judged by normal business parameters. As part of military spending on the arms race, the enemy bomber was replaced with a technological leap, the ICBM. And with another leap of technology, we have arrived at the point when it may be possible to completely stop a missile attack launched by today’s evolving threat—a rogue nation or a well-funded terrorist group. Missile defense didn’t happen by accident; it was the result of farsighted and dedicated people working toward No one else can even come close to themeven mention the other details of it. I went on the Internet as I had heard nothing on the news about it. I checked CBS, MSNBC, ABC and even Fox News, which I don’t think anyone could describe as ‘liberal media.’Do you know what I found? Only one small paragraph buried in another story on CNN and a very brief mention by Bill O’Reilly Wednesday night. But I did hear about ‘American atrocities’ eight times on Hardball Tuesday night. We’re supposed to worry about Geneva Convention rights and the rights of the people held at Guantanamo. Millions of reams of paper have been used to write newspaper stories about Abu Graib and Haditha. Countless TV hours have been devoted to hand-wringing and wailing about bad American Marines and Soldiers. I’d like to see a few lines in our newspapers or hear a See NO ONE, Page 7

The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, July 15, 2006 3 While in the neighborhood By J.J. Klein Reporterday after the 29th Engineer Battalion blew up the Paci c Batchelor Quarters they were at it again, this time underwater off the southern coast of Kwajalein. A U.S. Army Deep Sea Dive team from the 7th Engineer Detachment, 29th Engineer Battalion detonated an unexploded ordnance approximately 200 meters off the ocean side of Kwajalein near the area commonly known as the Shark Pit. The 5-inch, World War II round was discovered lying intact on the reef and overgrown with coral by recreational divers 10 feet below the surface. “The fact that it’s shallow is convenient; however it is right where the waves start to break on the reef. so it can have a substantial amount of surge, and you can have 3 to 4 foot depth changes in a hurry,” said 1st Lt. Charles Denike, executive of cer for the 7th Engineer Detachment. The team of nine divers exploded the ordnance by placing 10 pounds of explosives on the charge and running a detonation cord from the charge to the surface of the water. On the surface, the detonation cord was connected to a time fuse, wrapped in bubble wrap to keep it waterproof, and attached to a oat board. Just before igniting the fuse, the dive team cautioned surfers to return to the shore and executed an environmental underwater search. “Underwater we do an immediate area search just to make sure that there doesn’t seem to be hazards to marine life there, like a turtle sleeping under a piece of coral or a shark sleeping under a piece of coral, things like that,” said Denike. Once the time fuse was lit, it burned for ve minutes before the charge was detonated resulting in a 25-foot explosion of water. The battalion was told about the unexploded ordnance from Jim Landgraff, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll engineer, in January when it came to investigate the explosive reduction of the PBQ. The dive team set to work planning the detonation with the help of the Kwajalein Police Department and borrowed dive gear from the commercial dive locker. “We normally do underwater demolitions once or twice a year; this is something that we are capable of doing, that’s in our mission statement but it’s not something that we do very often,” said Denike. “The last time that this unit detonated any underwater explosives was about one year ago; we were in Australia.” The battalion was on the Kwajalein Atoll a few years ago to perform pier inspections and remapping various harbors in the atoll.

Saturday, July 15, 2006 The Kwajalein Hourglass 4 R e l a x a t i o n d r i v e s K w a j c o u p l e ’ s v a c a t i o n Relaxation drives Kwaj couple’s vacation By Jeff Halliday Kwajalein resident and intrepid travelerIf you are going to Bali, hire a driver. First, it’s a bargain. Paying a driver, which includes the costs of his car and gasoline, is cheaper than renting a car. Second, it’s safer. Not only do the Balinese drive on the ‘wrong’ side of the road, they defy our driving expectations in a variety of other ways. The dashed line painted on the center of the road is considered mainly decorative. Motor scooters buzz all around like swarming bees. Dogs amble across the lanes. Approaching an intersection you may nd a driver on a motor scooter coming at you head on – in your lane – only to make a turn at the last instant. All this happens at normal roadway speeds, and without anxiety, anger or mishap that we could see. Even if you are not worried about the high-speed ballet of Bali driving, a skilled driver can save you both money and precious hours wasted on false starts. It’s like having a guidebook that automatically opens to the correct page every time. You don’t get enough time off Kwaj. Use it wisely! Our driver, Ketut, was really extraordinary. Kwaj visitors are a regular part of his clientele, and he wore a different Kwaj T-shirt every day of the week. Dealing with so many Kwaj visitors, he knows what we tend to like. At the same time, he is sensitive to the kind of experience you want, and has a variety of options for you. If you are not interested in riding an elephant (we weren’t), he’ll recommend something else. Maybe you’d rather hike up a volcano? Or stroll through the tropical bird park? Visit the monkey forest? Watch a traditional Balinese dance or play? Visit Tanalot, the temple that’s inaccessible at high tide? Would you prefer scuba diving or snorkeling? Cooking school? Watching the batik artists at work? A visit to a traditional Balinese village? Want to take a dip in a hot spring? Visit a waterfall? There are plenty of things to keep you busy on Bali for a couple of weeks at least. And if your idea of a vacation is to be not busy, Ketut can help you arrange that too. We stayed three nights in a marvelous resort in Permuteran in northwest Bali. Imagine your own little villa amid well

For example, the cost of your lunch, though very modest by western standards, will usually include lunch for your driver with the staff of the restaurant. Drivers will often get a commission on what you purchase at a shop they take you to. The best advice: Don’t worry about it. Everything is still marvelously inexpensive by our standards. Indeed, one of the best selling items in Bali is the duffel bag for tourists taking home quite a bit more than they arrived with. Editor’s note: If you would like speci cs on the Halliday’s vacation, contact them at 54228. items for one-fourth the original asking price. You probably never should pay much more than half. Without a little help, you may not know where to start. Your driver can give you an approximation of what things should cost. Don’t expect to do as well as he would though. He is a repeat customer and deserves a better price. Enjoy the haggling, and don’t sweat the last 5,000 rupiah (about 50 cents). Your driver can also help you avoid some dodgy dealings, like vendors who will ‘sell’ you one item, but send you away with an inferior version of the same thing. There is a lot of mutual backgroomed lawns, punctuated with tropical owers and trees. Full breakfast included. The beach about 100 feet from your front door. A little arti cial brook runs around your villa, and the access is by stepping stones across the Koi pond. There is an outdoor daybed with a mosquito netting drapery (not that we were ever bothered with mosquitoes) – perfect for working crossword puzzles to the quiet music of the surf. A massage studio on the grounds will reduce you to mush for $10 an hour. All this for less per night than you spend at that ugly airport hotel in Honolulu. If you are willing to accept a smaller unit that shares a wall with another unit, the price goes down even further. Ketut made all the arrangements for us based on e-mail we exchanged in the weeks before our trip. Ketut grew up as a farm boy, so he knows all about rural farm life which is so important on Bali. He showed us all the various crops in the elds and explained how they are grown and harvested. Most importantly this included several different varieties of rice, but he can also show you coffee, cocoa, cloves, banana, papaya, foot-long string beans, breadfruit, mahogany, peppers, snake fruit, and grapes all ‘on the vine’ so to speak. It has been said that everybody on Bali is an artist. Ketut’s art is in giving his clients a great Bali experience. If there is a shopper in your group, your driver can save you the daily cost of his services with his helpful advice. Although some stores operate on xed prices, most items in the market are sold through haggling. We bought some Villagers take offerings to the local temple.

Using the common sense tips supplied by Pest Management, Roi has seen a noticeable decrease in y infestation islandwide. “We haven’t had to go up there and spray the island in almost a year; before it was almost every two to three weeks,” said Nicholson. “Floyd [Corder, Roi-Namur operation’s manager] and his gang have stepped up to the plate…because they are a small community, they proved that prevention is 100 percent effective. Everything going into garbage cans is tied up and sealed.” Killing off flies by chemical means will only reduce infestations for a short time. Eliminating access to food and garbage will signi cantly reduce the y population, and perhaps elimin ating t h e ve ngere d y swat a t Emon Beac h a l toget h er “It’s simple,” said Nicholson explaining his bottom-line for fly infestation management. “Prevent the y from getting on to your food, we won’t have ies. It’s that easy.” 6Take action with these simple steps Proper sanitation is key to controlling pests, y population By J.J. Klein ReporterEfforts to control the fly population on Kwajalein u sua ll y start wit h a p h one ca ll to Kwajalein Range Services Installation Pest Management; however, the rst line of defense, pest prevention, begins with you, especially during the rainy season. It is a common misconception that the start of the May to December rainy season brings an i ncrease in t h e fly p opu l ation. T h e t ruth, accordin g to nst a ll a t i o n P est Man agement Supervisor Michael Nicholson, is that there is a decrease in the effectiveness of the pest control arsenal of chemicals, sprays and bait used due to rain and wind. “I can throw y bait down but as soon as it hits the ground, the ground is wet, it melts a n d g oes awa y ” sai d N ic h o l son. “ I can spra y u n d the ar e a an d i t’s r oll ing off with the rain… if there is a chance or threat of any kind of rainy weather, we have to stop.” The hot Kwajalein weather is a perfect incubator for breeding ies, speeding the egg to adult y cycle from the typical two weeks to four days. Flies lay their eggs in moist or decaying matter such as discarded food, dead animals, or rotting vegetation. One female house y will lay ve to six batches of eggs with 75-150 eggs per batch. Twelve hours later the eggs hatch into larvae or maggots which continue to feed on the moist or decaying matter. After feeding, maggots will cocoon and hatch into an adult y continuing the cycle. “Ninety-eight percent of all the ies that we have here are grown by us due to poor sanitation,” said Ni cholso n. Fly infestation management c enters on a two-prong p l an. F irst t h ere is pest prevention, which calls for reducing the breeding and larvae food sources. Second is pest control, which means using all resources possible to attack the problem. Hindered by rain, pest control takes a backseat to prevention. Prevention is never hampered by rain or wind. According to Nicholson, efforts to reduce access to the source of the y infestation rest squarely on the shoulders of the Kwajalein community. “Because we live in such close quarters, everyone can be doing their part except for two people and they’re sharing that same black dumpster … that becomes a problem because one can ruin it for Seal garbage bags tightly. Use twist ties or zip ties to seal bags, do not tie up the ends of the garbage bag into bunny ears as a way to seal the bag. Do not over ll trash bags to the point of bursting. Keep garbage can lids on tight, and routinely wash out the receptacle. Avoid over owing trash receptacles at the beach and other public areas. If a can is full, nd another receptacle in which to dump trash. Pick up after your pet; feces become a source problem. Clean sh at the marina, keeping infestation contained to one area. Pick up decomposed vegetation such as grass clippings, pandanus leaves and rotting fruit.

It was due in large part to the dedicated professionals at the Reagan Test Site on Kwajalein Atoll. In past decades the detractors of missile defense have included a few highly respected scientists. They have a right to their opinions, and they have a right to be wrong; but thank goodness they didn’t have their way when it came to defense appropriations, for the world now has its share of irrational aggressors in search of martyrdom for which deterrence is a meaningless concept. Who wouldn’t sleep better at night knowing that a missile shield was part of the defensive arsenal? A glance at today’s headlines should be all the proof needed to conclude that this is money well spent. The motivation is as clear today as it was in 1945 when LeMay highlighted the stark differences between our untouched communities and the ruin visited upon nations overseas. He summed it up by saying, “If you love America, do everything you can to make sure that what happened to Germany and Japan will never happen to our country.” few words on TV about how videos of American Soldiers and Marines being blown up by roadside bombs or dying by sniper re are being sold in stores and markets throughout Iraq and the Middle East. I would imagine this latest one will be a best seller. Not only doesn’t the media show any outrage over this, I haven’t heard much from our elected of cials about it either. Why not? I don’t understand. Can someone enlighten me? I wonder what our troops think when they see those videos for sale while they’re out on patrol trying to protect the very people who are selling and buying them. It seems our troops are not only under attack on the ground but are also under attack from a news media bent on doing its best to stain their honor. If American troops commit a criminal act, then by all means, they should be prosecuted and punished. If indeed, the allegations of the rape and murders are true, then there is no excuse, war or no war. It’s criminal behavior, period. But it seems to me that the media goes after such allegations with what almost borders on glee. Most of the troops in Iraq were never in a combat situation before being sent there. They were never trained to do what they are trying to do. They are forced to be policemen, lawyers and diplomats and yet have to be ready to kill in an instant. Death could be in the very next piece of dirt they step on, the very next house they walk in front of or the very next car that drives by. They endure 130-degree heat with 90 pounds of equipment, sti ing ak jackets and try to drink bottles of water that are as hot as the desert sands. They sweat their uniforms through a dozen times a day. They deal with swarms of ies, unsanitary conditions and local diseases. They’ve had to deal with faulty body armor, vehicles without enough protection and other equipment problems. They miss their wives, husbands and children desperately. I suspect they spend most of their day being afraid and yet they go out in those deadly streets, drive in deadly convoys and do their duty. They might give candy to children and then endure seeing those same children killed by a car bomb the next day. They are trained to kill the enemy, but they are also kind and compassionate. Not because they are trained to be or have to be, but because they are good and caring people. They give of themselves to serve you and me in peacetime boredom or in deadly war, popular or unpopular. They ask for and seek nothing except the support of their country and their countrymen. They want us to be proud of them. I’ve heard some people sneeringly say, “Well, they volunteered for it.” Aren’t we a lucky bunch they did? Given the stress they have been under for more than three years, the nature of the enemy they face, and the seemingly impossible and never ending situation they nd themselves in, I don’t believe any troops of any army of any country in the world would have performed with as much dignity and honor as American troops have in Iraq. Above all, they’re human beings, and while they might not be perfect, let’s see anyone else even come close. NO ONE, from Page 2 Patio sales on Saturday will be advertised in Wednesday’s issue.
