    U.S. Places Missile Shield Obama Doesn’t Want on Heightened Alert


    From Patterico:

    Obama is going to let Iran get the bomb. Never fear. Bill Clinton let North Korea get the bomb, and that’s working out just fine:

    The Pentagon has placed its national missile defense shield on heightened alert amid reports that North Korea is preparing a missile flight test, according to defense officials.

    The higher alert status includes moving two Aegis-equipped missile defense ships to waters near North Korea and readying long-range ground-based interceptors in Alaska and California, said officials familiar with the status.

    “I will cut investments in unproven missile defense systems,” Obama told us. Maybe he just wanted to be the one to test them in a real-life situation.

    The increased readiness of the missile shield followed harsh threats by the communist regime in North Korea to conduct nuclear missile attacks against the United States.

    Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said following a speech yesterday that North Korea has a “nuclear capacity now,” along with missiles.

    Obama had planned a show of strength, which has been withdrawn because they’re worried about North Korea’s response. You don’t feel reassured?
