Meanwhile, the Trudeau government does nothing to protect Canadians from a potential missile attack.
As tensions with North Korea draw the world closer to a potential war, the United States is reportedly considering new missile defence sites on the West Coast.
According to Reuters, “West Coast defenses would likely include Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) anti-ballistic missiles, similar to those deployed in South Korea to protect against a potential North Korean attack.”
The report notes, “The accelerated pace of North Korea’s ballistic missile testing program in 2017 and the likelihood the North Korean military could hit the U.S. mainland with a nuclear payload in the next few years has raised the pressure on the United States government to build-up missile defenses.”
The additional steps come as North Korea shows increasingly advanced missile capabilities, and may now have missiles capable of reaching all of North America.
Meanwhile, the Trudeau government continues denying Canadians the security of a missile defence system.
This denial is all the more egregious considering that the government is re-opening two Cold War nuclear bunkers to protect the federal cabinet in the case of a nuclear strike on Canada.
At this point, the government seems willing to enhance their own protections from danger, while refusing to protect Canadians.
