Missile Defense Holds North Korea's Kim Jong-un Threats Harmless

ALEXANDRIA, Va., April 1, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Riki Ellison, Chairman and Founder of the Missile Defense Advocacy Alliance (MDAA),, comments on the recent North Korea Nuclear threats against the United States,  Ellison is one of the top lay experts in missile defense in the world. His comments:

" The United States has no intention to strike first against a nuclear armed nation such as North Korea, largely because the United States can defend against a long range North Korean nuclear missile attack. The United States' intention and policy is to prevent South Korea and Japan from striking first against a North Korean nuclear power that will provoke and threaten. Having joint military exercises such as what is taking place and joint deployed missile defense capability in South Korea, Japan and the United States, defeats the threatening government of North Korea, and significantly reduces South Korean and Japan's consideration of preemptive or striking back at North Korea and lighting the fuse to a devastating war.

"The massive display of offensive capability along with missile defense, in and around the Korean Peninsula, including the flights of nuclear capable B-2 stealth bombers, is an absolute necessity for South Korea, Japan, and United States as we work to assure that millions of innocent lives are defended and that this offensive capability is able to survive a first strike by North Korea. This joint capability will further deter North Korea as they decide if they should rationally strike or not strike, and defend if they irrationally decide to strike.

"Having a combination of joint defensive and offensive forces is much more lethal and sound to deter and prevent conflict than relying on offensive forces alone. Defensive capability provides more flexibility in response as well as more assurance as is demonstrated today by the use of missile defense in this region.
