With North Korea threatening the world with nuclear missiles, some concerns are being raised about our ability to intercept all those missiles. If even one gets through, it could be catastrophic with a death toll in the millions, and the most likely American target would be the solidly Democratic West Coast states.
That would not only be tragic but also ironic, because as Mark Thiessen recently reminded us in the Washington Post, Republican Presidents ever since Reagan have been trying to improve and expand missile defense, while every Democrat who got elected immediate set to worth trying to defund and dismantle the effort.
Before you swallow the media narrative that all of our problems with North Korea and rogue nuclear regimes started the second Trump was sworn in, read this for a detailed refresher course on how smug, Ivy League liberal leaders mocked the very idea of missile defense and made sure that we don’t yet have an advanced, reliable system to protect ourselves and our allies.
Also always worth a reminder, as Hillary Clinton makes the talk show rounds to blast the way Trump is handling the North Korean nuclear threat: it was her husband who allowed North Korea to build modern nuclear reactors, for “peaceful energy-generating purposes.” UN inspectors were going to make sure they kept their promise never to build bombs. That deal worked out so well, Obama repeated it in Iran.
We not only need a missile defense system, we need a Democratic President defense system.
