The Reagan Legacy At Work...

Do you remember?

I do.

I remember all of the comedians making fun of "Ronald Ray Gun". I remember the "Star Wars" references, the ridicule directed at the very idea of such a system, and the assertions that it would never work, would cost too much, and could not be done.

I also remember that President Reagan stuck to his guns on it, and as a result, the Soviet Union conceded defeat in the Arms Race.

Thank you President Reagan.

Today, for the first time ever, The Pentagon activated it.

From the Washington Times, via the Drudge Report...

N. Korean threat activates shield
By Bill GertzTHE WASHINGTON TIMESJune 20, 2006

The Pentagon activated its new U.S. ground-based interceptor missile defense system, and officials announced yesterday that any long-range missile launch by North Korea would be considered a "provocative act."

You don't say? Just because they have been announcing for years that they are building a Nuclear Missile with which to attack the U.S. Homeland doesn't mean that their testing a Long Range ICBM is a "Provocative act"...

I mean, maybe the North Koreans want to use their Long Range ICBM for humanitarian purposes...

Like taking out San Francisco, California.

So, North Korea has at last completed assembly of their "Do It yourself Intercontinental Ballistic Nuclear Missile Kit" provided to them by the Clinton Administration.

But do not worry.

President Reagan provided a way for us to protect ourselves from threats like this one.

While the Democrats said in unison that it could not be done.

Just like they always do.
