New Provocation by North Korea

Statement

North Korea on Wednesday successfully fired into orbit a long-range rocket carrying a satellite. Many experts believe this feat is a major advance in the nation's weapons program.

The long-range missile launch threatens the U.S. and its allies, undermines stability in the Pacific and violates multiple international accords. This provocative act is heightened by the regime's ongoing development of new nuclear weapons.

As the Congress and the Administration consider deep spending cuts in our national security budget, they must be mindful that rogue regimes like Iran and North Korea and accelerating instability in the Middle East require us to maintain and enhance our military capabilities.
