Trump Carries On Reagan’s Legacy in Protecting the Homeland

President Trump’s investment in missile defense technology, after a lull during the Obama years, is paying off. Ronald Reagan’s vision of a “Star Wars” missile defense system is coming closer to reality. Financial Express reports:

The US military said Monday it had successfully tested an anti-intercontinental ballistic missile

(ICBM) system, with a target launched from the Marshall Islands shot down by two interceptors based in California.

To protect against the threat from ICBMs, the US has developed the Ground-based Midcourse Defense (GMD) system, which is designed to fire an interceptor missile into space and use kinetic energy to destroy the incoming target.

While it has been tested before, this was the first successful test involving a salvo of interceptor missiles, the military said in a statement.

Missile defense is a critical part of national security, and will deter rogue states like Iran and North Korea without having to resort to nuclear retaliatory bombing.

Yes, But we still need to have just as many Nuclear missiles as the next guy just in case they do hit us with a nuke Right? The Reagan Stare Wars was the actual High powered Energy weapon in Space also having Other types of Anti-Missile Systems also in Space as well I am hoping?

I doubt this will happen. No nukes. As long as we have dictators on earth, they never use intelligence to rule.
