US to deploy more ground-based missile interceptors as North Korea steps up threatsOne of the most bitter political battles in the 1980s was over missile defense. Liberals claimed it was impossible. They claimed that "all experts agree" that it is 'impossible to hit a missile with a missile.' Once again, their "experts" were wrong. By deploying missile defense, the Obama administration is tacitly admitting it.
The U.S. is deploying 14 new ground-based missile interceptors in Alaska to counter renewed nuclear threats from North Korea and Iran, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said Friday.
The new interceptors will be based at Fort Greely, an Army launch site about 100 miles southeast of Fairbanks, Alaska, and are projected to be fully deployed by 2017, Hagel said. The additions will bring the U.S.-based ground interceptor deployment from 30 to 44, including four that are based in California.
