Posted: March 30, 2013 at 8:20 am

As North Korea has said it’s ready “to settle accounts with the U.S. imperialists in view of the prevailing situation,” Senator Mark Begich emphasized Alaska’s military protection.

Calling the threats ‘dangerous,’ Sen. Begich felt they “further illustrate the importance of Alaska’s missile defense system,” which is currently being upgraded.

said Sen. Begich. “If these words turn out to be more than just chest-thumping, Alaska’s 49th Missile Battalion at Fort Greely stand ready with the resources they need defend us.”
