- China continues to transfer, through its own territory, nuclear weapons technology involving both North Korea and Iran.
- In April, North Korea launched a ballistic missile from a submerged platform. The North Korean underwater launch test was closely related to the further development of a missile-firing submarine capable of hitting the U.S. — “a first step,” according to Uzi Rubin, “in achieving a very serious and dangerous new military capability… it will take many years to build up the missile defenses, so we had better use the time wisely.”
- Although the Chinese profess to be against nuclear proliferation, documented evidence illustrates just the opposite — as a means of asserting Chinese hegemony, complicating American security policy and undermining American influence.
- Unfortunately, no matter how attractive a strategy of diplomatically ending North Korea’s nuclear program might look, it is painfully at odds with China’s established record of supporting nuclear proliferation with such collapsed or rogue states as Iran, Syria, Pakistan, North Korea and Libya.

America took its eyes off the enemy behind the enemy and has been distracted by chasing a never ending supply of terrorists throughout the Middle East brought forth by this same enemy.
Now we see the degrading effects of America’s national suicide in real time, yet the worst is yet to come should it allow for its adversaries to remain three steps ahead of the game. It will one day put itself in a position to capitulate to the Sino-Soviet alliance or risk be invaded on the homeland — and yes, it will come to that point if this continues.
On a good note, at least someone is sounding the alarm in America, albeit one out of a handful that’s willing to risk retaliation from the Obama administration.
As major world powers like Russia and China rapidly develop new weapons systems, the Pentagon has established a new panel with the sole purpose of searching for cracks in the military’s electronic warfare capabilities. Taking its combat technologies for granted, many DoD officials believe the US may be losing its edge.
On Tuesday, Deputy Defense Secretary Robert Work signed the Electronic Warfare Executive Committee into being. Led by Pentagon acquisition chief Frank Kendall and Admiral James Winnefeld, vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the new committee was established to ensure that the United States stays competitive in the electromagnetic spectrum.
