Gates: More missile defense spending possible

Defense Secretary Robert Gates isn’t ruling out spending more on missile defense than what he’s asked for in next year’s budget if North Korea or other nations increase threats against the United States.

Gates said the missile tests by North Korea over the past week appear to have attracted more support on Capitol Hill for missile interceptors.

If the neighborhood continues to deteriorate, I might consider buying a higher caliber, more accurate gun, and then practice using it more, but I’m going to wait for a few more murders and muggings in the neighborhood first.

What does he mean, IF “North Korea or other nations increase threats”?  What do Obama and Gates need?  An announcement of a launch date on Honolulu?  Or San Francisco?

    Yes, then we will know how long we have to “talk” them out of it. I mean they could get really tough and stop all shipments of California wine to them, this would really hurt North Korea and bring them to their knees.

    Or we could just embargo all porn shipments to N.K. That would really bother ‘ole Kimmy.
