It has been so long since we have done any nuclear testing that so many Americans have lost sight of the power of nuclear weapons. The consequences are terrifying. Just think about the loss of even one American city held hostage to nuclear blackmail by terrorists. We have to face the fact that there are countries and ideologies that hate America and want to destroy us. Have we really faced the fact that there are nations in the world run by very evil dictators who would like to kill Americans and destroy our country? We need a President who is proud of America and wants to maintain the peace of the world, and U.S. military superiority is the best road to achieve that. The tragic events that took place in Libya, where our U.S. Ambassador was viciously murdered, as well as the attacks on our embassies in several other countries, was the consequence of weak U.S. leadership and lack of respect for America.
President Ronald Reagan was terribly harassed by the Soviets and even by our own State Department trying to get him to abandon plans to build an effective anti-missile defense system. Reagan resisted all those pressures, and we hope and pray our President will be as steadfast as Reagan in standing for the principle that America must have a workable system to shoot down nuclear missiles before they hit American cities.
