“They are leading political leaders to believe that they have a military capability that they don’t, in fact, have” a comment by David Wright who is co-director of the Global Security Program at the Union of Concerned Scientists, concerning the missile defense system of the United States of America.
The technology in this field is urged to hold up to the current threats posed by North Korea and Iran regarding their animus nuclear program towards the Western states.
As escalations between the leader of “the free world” and Pyongyang have reached critical levels in the recent weeks, leading the attention of the American public to be directed at their defensive capabilities in case of a nuclear strike by their decades long foe.
Pyongyang on the way
North Korea has reached a far stage in their nuclear capabilities regarding its production and the Nano capacity of its implementation, aiming to structure the atomic missile as small as possible to fit on a ballistic missile that can reach the shores of the United States of America and cause tremendous damage.
The American public is in a state of paranoia and is scrutinizing the pentagon to get clear sense of the protective capacity of their armed forces as well as the contingency plans in case of a nuclear disasters.
A spokesperson for the Pentagon’s Missile Defense Agency, Chris Johnson, attempting to promulgate confidence into the masses, stated that he: “is confident in our ability to defend the homeland against ballistic missile threats.
While the program had reliability challenges early in its development, we have made significant improvements over the last several years to ensure the system is able to operate as designed”
Known as Ground-based Midcourse Defense system, it turned out under several watchdog and media investigation to lack the efficiency promoted by officials.
The system that was deployed in 2004 has failed to intercept 6 out of 9 missiles that were launched under far less challenging conditions then a real-life situation would require.
Panic and fear is floating in the American experts minds on to how the country should be able to sleep and rest, knowing that a they could be hit by a nuclear missile anytime and not be able to protect its territories.
