We are disappointed and disheartened that a denuclearization deal could not be reached with North Korea and at a significant loss of opportunity that presented itself between the two nations. We endeavor to look forward to a paradigm shift from North Korea in ridding itself of past negotiation history and behavior with the United States in gaining economic sanction relief in exchange for de-escalation but not denuclearization.
Our nation’s focus on developing, delivering and sustaining missile defense systems to negate North Korea’s nuclear ballistic missiles to our homeland, to Hawaii, to Guam and to our allies of Japan and South Korea enables the United States of America to walk away from negotiations with North Korea, when its not in our best interest, without fear and concern of their threat of nuclear ballistic missiles.
North Korea may choose to leverage the departure of the talks with rhetoric to increase its existing missile production, restart its nuclear testing, accelerate its ICBM testing and increase its proliferation of these technologies to directly threaten the United States, Japan, and South Korea.
The United States stands strong with confidence, reliability, readiness, and capability to negate North Korea’s threats, ignore their rhetoric and be receptive in remaining steadfast for the denuclearization of North Korea.
MDAA’s mission is to make the world safer by advocating for the development and deployment of missile defense systems to defend the United States, its armed forces and its allies against missile threats.
MDAA is the only organization in existence whose primary mission is to educate the American public about missile defense issues and to recruit, organize, and mobilize proponents to advocate for the critical need of missile defense. We are a non-partisan membership-based and membership-funded organization that does not advocate on behalf of any specific system, technology, architecture or entity.
