Hagel Announces Steps To Improve Missile Defense Against North Korea
Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel announced Friday that the U.S. is taking additional steps to defend itself from a nuclear attack by North Korea.
Hagel said that the U.S. would deploy fourteen additional ground-based missile interceptors, providing a 50 percent increase in the nation’s missile defense capability.
The Defense Secretary said that the U.S. would also deploy additional radar in Japan to provide improved early warning and tracking.
Additionally, Hagel said that the Defense Department is conducting an environmental impact study of a new ground-based interceptor site in the U.S.
The moves come on the heels of a recent nuclear test by North Korea, which has also threatened a pre-emptive attack on South Korea and the U.S.
Let’s see, which is more harmful to the environment?
1) an Anti-Ballistic Missile System or,
2) a nuclear explosion
Sorry Seattle, but we cannot protect your city from a nuclear ballistic missile attack since the protective missile system will harm the environment.
What was the Senate thinking when they confirmed this clown.
