Obama Administration “Might Consider” Defending Our Country

March 30, 2009

While North Korea is preparing to break international law by launching a missile (supposedly to put a satellite into orbit), Defense Secretary Robert Gates is saying that we’re just not prepared to do anything about it.  Addressing the possibility of shooting the missile down, Gates had this to say:

“I think if we had an aberrant missile, one that was headed for Hawaii, that looked like it was headed for Hawaii or something like that, we might consider it,” Gates said. “But I don’t think we have any plans to do anything like that at this point.”

Well great!  It’s good to know that the Obama administration might consider shooting the missile down if it was headed for American soil.  But don’t get your hopes or anything.  I guess we’d be demanding too much of them if we expected them to do what is necessary to defend America and protect American lives.
