“The United States is beset by enemies who mean to destroy us at all costs. We cannot wage war against everyone at once. But, we can keep these forces at bay by making it impossible for them effectively to reach us through an ICBM or other nuclear strike. It’s time to deploy space-based missile defense.”
“The United States needs space-based weapons to protect against nuclear-armed and aggressive Rogue States, such as Iran and North Korea.”
