November 7, 2017—Stop North Korea!

“U.S. missile defense against North Korea are not postured to shoot down North Korean missile tests . . . Shooting down North Korean missiles that fall within the defended areas of these systems, such as the Japanese and U.S. homelands, would be challenging enough.”~ Kingston Reif, director of Disarmament and Threat Reduction policy at the Arms Control Association On Fox News, September 18, 2017 . . .

September 19, 2017—Ditch the Iran Deal!

September 19, 2017—Ditch the Iran Deal!

The terrible Iran Deal has been and is little to no help in preventing metastasizing of Iran’s nuclear threat. Indeed it has become a shield behind which Iran is gaining confidence in the deliverable nuclear weapon capability it has pursued for many years in conjunction with its ally North Korea, i.e., via a deliberate path toward nuclear weapons and the means to deliver them—to attack the “Little Satan” Israel and the “Great Satan” America.

August 15, 2017—Hill Action Items!

The past couple of weeks, I joined several other contributors to The Hill, which delivers the daily news focused on the interest of Capitol Hill, to discuss the implications of North Korea entering the ranks of deliverable nuclear weapons by ballistic missiles, particularly intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) that can reach cities in the Continental United States. If you visit congressional offices as well as many other offices around Washington, you will find this daily newspaper on their coffee tables.
