Thirty-nine years ago today, my old boss, President Ronald Reagan launched the Strategic Defense Initiative. It was intended to enable the United States to protect its people from nuclear armed missiles, not avenge their mass murder after the fact.
Tragically, unbeknownst to most Americans, we still have no comprehensive defense against the vast, and recently upgraded, missile arsenals of enemies like Russia’s Vladimir Putin and China’s Xi Jinping.
Worse yet, the American people are largely ignorant of an another, ominous fact: We are relying on an obsolescent nuclear arsenal almost entirely put into place by Mr. Reagan and his predecessors even to avenge an attack on them.
In light of Putin’s Ukraine-driven nuclear threats, we’ll be holding an urgent webinar today on “Preventing Nuclear War: This is No Drill.” Please join us at PresentDangerChina.org to learn how we do that.
