Our military will not sit by and let our enemies advance.
For generations, the Pentagon has developed and trained the highest quality military. Our troops and weapons are rivaled by few. That’s because when we see a threat, we work overtime to defeat it.
Which is why the Pentagon is making new plans for something big. Something that will put a few of our enemies in their place.
From Daily Caller:
The Pentagon is reportedly planning to practice shooting down long-range intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) like the one that North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un hopes to field.
North Korea’s ballistic missile program is progressing faster than expected, and the Department of Defense is investing in improved missile defense systems, including a first ICBM intercept test, according to Matt Lee from the Associated Press.
The test, which is not being conducted solely because of North Korea’s weapons advances, is scheduled for next Tuesday. While the U.S. has several defense systems in place to counter incoming ballistic missiles, the anti-missile systems designed to bring down an ICBM are the least reliable, the AP introduced.
We’ve had the technology to shoot down long-range missiles for quite some time. Yet this practice is to directly confront the threats posed by North Korea. Just this past week, they had fired missiles into Japan’s waters (again). There is no telling how far their future missiles might go.
Our improved missile systems will be able to intercept and shoot down anything North Korea might fire at us. And the advances the Pentagon make will also be used to protect our allies like Japan and South Korea.
The threats of North Korea might sound scary. There might be Americans worried what is to come. Yet thanks to our brave military and their ingenuity, you can rest easy. Our technology will always beat theirs.
