If the United States gets attacked by North Korea and American lives are lost, blame former failed President Barack Obama.
As North Korea continues testing missiles it says can reach the United States, while simultaneously working to build nuclear warheads small enough to mount atop them, America’s plan to shoot down the ICBMs is nowhere near a sure bet, Politico reported.
The U.S. plan includes various sensors, radars, and interceptor missiles based in Alaska and California. But testing has been far from 100 percent. In fact, three of five tests have failed. And the two that succeeded were “heavily scripted,” Politico quoted military leaders.
“If the North Koreans fired everything they had at us, and we fired at all of the missiles, we’d probably get most of them,” Jeffrey Lewis, director of the East Asia nonproliferation program at the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies, told Politico. “But is ‘probably get most’ a good day or a bad day?”
The Pentagon on Wednesday said its Ground-based Midcourse Defense system can take down missiles flying through the atmosphere, but that optimistic view is not widely shared.
“Partly we are failing because it is the hardest thing the Pentagon has tried to do,” Phil Coyle, former Pentagon chief weapons tester, said.

Obama completely decimated the U.S. military and its ability to protect and defend America from nations like North Korea.
In fact, thank Bill Clinton for paving the way for North Korea to have nuclear weapons!
