I was reading Victor Davis Hanson
over at NRO
this morning about the problems on the Korean peninsula. One of the points he makes is that we should increase our efforts on developing a ballistic missile defense. The standard argument against this is that any enemy would not use a missle but smuggle the nuclear weapon into the US. If that's the case, however, why are North Korea and Iraq working so hard on missiles and why are other rogue nations buying those missiles? Apparently the people running rogue nations believe that using missiles to deliver weapons is a good choice, which makes working on a ballistic missile defense a good choice for us. I'll believe the buying habits of rogue nations over the theories of western pundits.
