Initially six interceptor rockets would be based at Fort Greely, Alaska by the end of 2004, and four would be at Vandenberg Air Force Base, California. Twenty Standard Missile-3 interceptors would be aboard three Navy ships, and hundreds of Patriot PAC-3 missiles would be deployed around the world to knock down shorter-range missiles. The new Missile Defense System will use spiral and evolutionary development models. This means there is no final or fixed system architecture.
The image of a skeleton was over the USA. Part of the skeleton over Florida was the image of an elephant. An elephant represents a demon Commander, such as Baal.
President Bush approved the Missile Defense System. The System will use an evolutionary development plan, which means the final architecture is not defined. The plans for the System, which have been in work for years, were approved on December 17th, for lawlessness. It was Day 351, for arrogance.
God is opposed to the arrogant, but gives grace to the humble (James 4:6b)Only a bare bones system will be deployed at first. The image on the weather map resembled a skeleton. The part of the skeleton over Florida was a weather elephant, which represents a demon Commander, such as Baal. Florida was under cursing because it symbolizes the part of the Client Nation responsible for the air defense of a missile system.
