NATO endorses missile shield

NATO leaders agreed to extend our missile defense system to cover Europe by installing a radar in the Czech Republic and interceptors in Poland.

Missile defense is now official policy not only of the United States, but of NATO as well. Hopefully this will make it hard for the Democrats to shut down a system that is already installed and working. Honestly, I don’t understand why they continue to oppose it. The system is built and has passed 28 of 29 tests since it was deployed. Reagan, their nemesis, has passed away. It simply goes beyond reason now.

BONUS: An interesting video on the state-of-the-art in missile defense. (Via Instapundit.) It’s half an hour long, but well worth it if you’re interested in missile defense. (Bear with it, they do eventually point the camera at the screen.)

UPDATE (6/17): Sigh, the testing record link is stale now. I assemble my own chronology here. With my conservative methodology, I calculated a 23-2 record.
