Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel will announce to the American people Friday that the U.S. is deploying 14 new ground-based missile interceptors, probably located in Alaska, defense officials made aware to both Fox News as well as NBC News.
The officials did not make mention of exactly why the missile interceptors were being deployed, however the announcement comes as N. Korea has been making relentless threats to both S. Korea as well as the United States. N. Korea has torn up the armistice agreement and vowed to reign down a wall of fire on the United States and its allies.
Despite threat being issued from N. Korea the United States has begun their military drills with S. Korea this week despite the continued threats from the DPRK.
One thing is for sure, between the continued rhetoric coming from the DPRK and Obama deciding to take a stand with Israel against Iran in its pursuit of nuclear arms, you can be assured that within the next several weeks to months our government is going to be ramping up our military in several locations. Question is….
Who is going to be the first to fire!
