Facts


Fact: During the past six months, North Korea has launched many test missiles that successfully crashed into the Sea of Japan. Fact: North Korea has recently declared a hostility toward the United States, threatening to sink one of our aircraft carriers. Fact: The US, since the Reagan Administration, has been developing a “Star Wars” technology to defend against missiles from hostile countries. Fact: This past week, the US successfully used a missile to destroy another missile at high speed and high altitude that was described as a ‘bullet hitting another bullet’. Fact: The target missile was launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base, California, and intercepted/destroyed by a US missile launched from a ship at sea in the international waters of the Pacific Ocean. Fact: The target missile approximated a North Korean missile in existence that could reach the US State of Hawaii. Fact: The US target missile was expensive to produce and launch.

Analysis and Conclusion relative to theft:


This may be a nearly complete waste of US taxpayer dollars. Why should we build target missiles for destruction over unoccupied international waters at much cost when a declared enemy, and real threat, provides the same thing for nothing? It would be to our advantage to pay North Korea a token amount of money to provide targets for us to test against. This MOT Ballot weighs the theft from the American people by its own leadership, of its earned, respected, and contributory history to the world by having to build our own target missiles for testing.
