NORAD HAS A HELP­FUL RE­MINDER

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS -

There may be con­stant fire­works in Wash­ing­ton, and movies bomb at the box of­fice. Nu­clear weapons are the prob­lem else­where. Some­body’s got Amer­ica’s back, how­ever.

“North Korea’s launch on Fri­day of an in­ter­con­ti­nen­tal bal­lis­tic mis­sile was de­tected, closely tracked and de­ter­mined not to be a dan­ger to North Amer­ica. How­ever, this provoca­tive launch served as yet another re­minder of North Korea’s con­tin­ued threat to the United States and our al­lies with their mis­sile pro­gram,” says Gen­eral Lori Robin­son, com­man­der of the North Amer­i­can Aero­space Defense Com­mand and U.S. North­ern Com­mand — that’s USNORTHCOM in the ver­nac­u­lar.

“I want to as­sure our cit­i­zens that USNORTHCOM re­mains un­wa­ver­ing in our con­fi­dence that we can fully de­fend the United States against this bal­lis­tic mis­sile threat,” she notes. “We stand this watch each and ev­ery day.”
