Before the election Pres. Obama was overhead with Russian President Medvedev saying that on missile defense, he would have more "flexibility" on that issue after his election.
Gov. Romney brought the point of Obama's posturing to cave on missile defense up in the debates but the media ignored it like they are ignoring Obama's promise that the Sequester wouldn't happen.
Last week before Pres. Obama's visit to Israel, it was announced that the US is capitulating to Russia and is withdrawing missile defense from Europe.
Interesting that LDS Church President George Albert Smith was shown a vision of WW3 recorded by my childhood neighbor Bro. David Horne. A major detail in the vision leading up to nuclear war by Russia and China on the US is that the US would withdraw our missiles from Europe.
Also, as we debate whether North Korea has missile technology to reach the US, the Sequester has caused significant reductions in port security. As I see it, why does North Korea need missiles when they could just FedEx us a surprise?
In 2008, Presidential Candidate Obama said: "We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we've set. We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded."
As I see it, I think the US is very vulnerable to another 9/11-like attack. If such an terrorist or false-flag event were to occur, we would likely see the "civilian national security force" that Pres. was promising, and we would likely see was against Syria, Iran, and North Korea. I am sure the US would make a strong case that rogue nations who support terrorism can no longer be tolerated. Then after the US avenges itself upon these nations, Russia and China will strike as they have threatened nations that violate sovereignty of other nations.
