North Korea

"Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said 14 more interceptors would be stationed in Alaska by 2017..."

The North Koreans have threatened the United States with a nuclear missile attack.  So the Obama Administration is putting more missile interceptors in place, in four years.  Four years!  Let's hope the North Koreans are willing to wait that long to attack us.  Decades of cuts to our conventional forces have left us without the means to defend the nation from missile attack.

The ineffectual response of the Obama Administration will not bother the North Koreans.  The dispatch of two aircraft carriers to the region and the overflight of aircraft of North Korea would impress them more, along with a couple hundred tanks.  Weakness brings opportunity for tyrants like North Korea; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
