But…free health care!!

The U.S. Defense Department plans to ask Congress for $4.5 billion in extra missile defense funding over the next five years as part of the fiscal 2015 budget request, say congressional sources and an expert.

Nearly $1 billion of that sum will pay for a new homeland defense radar to be placed in Alaska, with an additional $560 million to fund work on a new interceptor after several failed flight tests, said Riki Ellison, founder of the nonprofit Missile Defense Advocacy Alliance, and two of the congressional sources, who were not authorized to speak publicly.

The Pentagon’s request for added funding comes despite continued pressure on military spending and cuts in other arms programs, a sign of Washington’s growing concern about missile development efforts by North Korea and Iran, the sources said.

Wait, is this administration allowed to acknowledge that NoKo and the Iranians are kind of creepy?

Stay tuned…

Working together jointly with Israel on missile defense is the obvious solution.

The threat is not North Korea.

The threat is China. A real threat.

Their stuff, including now a hypersonic missile for which the Navy says we have no defense, is a result of decades of industrial and military espionage in the US and outright thievery from Russia. They are wanting more. They see military force, including nuclear weapons delivery, as a path to more.

Power vacuum, meet the new renter. China.
