33 Minutes: Protecting America in the New Missile Age will be presented in Colorado Springs Thursday, followed by a panel discussion in which you'll have an opportunity to ask questions. The Panel includes: Major General Bentley Rayburn, USAF (Ret.), Commander Andy Pico, USN (Ret.) and Col. Tim Murphy, USAF (Ret.).
The film is presented by The Heritage Foundation. Here is the premise:
"A ballistic missile from a foreign enemy would take 33 minutes to reach the United States.
With each passing day, this becomes a growing danger to America, yet our government has failed to build the missile defense systems capable of defending us against such attacks. Our enemies are attempting to stockpile arsenals that threaten our freedom and prosperity. North Korea and Iran are the most prominent, but this also includes Russia, China, and other nations that have missiles capable of killing Americans in very large numbers and threatening our allies. The time has come to revive the strategic missile defense system that America uniquely can develop, maintain, and employ for its own defense and the peace-loving world's security. The 33 Minutes documentary aims to do just that by highlighting the disastrous consequences of a nuclear explosion on American soil - one that could happen in just 33 minutes."
The Colorado Springs screening is Thursday, April 1. Doors open at 5:30 with the screening at 6:30. The screening will take place at Stargazers Theatre, 10 South Parkside Dr. in Colorado Springs.
Tickets are $4 for singles or $6 for couples. Purchase at Stargazers Theatre, KVOR, The Mason Jar Restaurants, The Airplane Restaurant, SkiHawk Financial or Trans Tech Auto & Truck. Cash only for tickets--please being exact change.
