Barack Obama became President spouting the typical leftwing anti-defense policy and dreaming of the fantasy of a nuclear-free world. He seems to think diplomatic talks and his personal charm can replace peace through strength, but it can't. He started unilaterally reducing our nuclear deterrent in the hope our enemies would follow suit, which, of course, they didn't. Obama even used his State of the Union speech this year to breathe new life into his effort to reduce nuclear weapons around the world. He said he wants to cut our nuclear forces by about a third, but Communist North Korea is not responsive to these overtures.
North Korea's new boss, Kim Jong Un, is the 30-year-old grandson of the Communist tyrant who started the Korean War in 1950. Kim has now put our 28,000 U.S. troops at risk by declaring that the 1953 Armistice suspending the Korean War is null and void, so North and South Korea are in a "state of war." Now we need an anti-missile defense system more than ever.
