US Officials Criticize South Korea for Halting Missile Defense System

Recommended Posts

US officials are increasingly critical of South Korea’s President Moon Jae-In for moving to halt the deployment of THAAD launchers as part of the US missile defense system being set up in South Korea, complaining that they are needlessly delaying the installation of the launchers.

Rep. Ed Royce (R – CA) was particularly vocal in criticizing the delays, saying that the system is “critical” to protecting South Korea from North Korean missile attacks. The US already has two launchers installed, and delivered four others.

What I have to ask is very simple.... Why are there those in Washington so opposed to de-escalation moves?
