“The proliferation of deadly weapons remains a serious danger. The enemies of freedom are not idle.”
– President George W. Bush in a speech aboard the USS Abraham Lincoln, May 2, 2003
Members, Supporters and Friends:
This past week, Kim Myong Choi, the Executive Director of the Center for Korea-American Peace, told an Australian news network that it is obvious that North Korea has a minimum of 100 nuclear weapons. All of these weapons are locked onto U.S. cities. Kim claims that North Korea will use the weapons that it has if it is attacked by the United States as well or if an economic embargo was imposed.
Hostile nations possessing and proliferating possible nuclear weapons, further proves that we are living in an unstable nuclear time and it further bolsters the need to have the necessary protection from an attack from a rogue nation or terrorist organization.
We would like to commend the state of Georgia for recognizing the unrelenting threat to our shores and it has recently passed a senate resolution that supports the creation and deployment of a missile defense system. This bipartisan resolution passed with an astounding vote count of 46 to 1.
