[UPDATE] Eric Cantor Dreads an Iranian Attack on Poland
Rep. Eric Cantor’s (R-Va.) spokesman Brad Dayspring has responded to Vice President Joe Biden’s remark that he’s “less concerned” about a long-term threat from Iranian missiles.
Allies including Poland, the Czech Republic and Israel stand on the front line of an Iranian missile threat and should never doubt the United States’ commitment to their security.
Update: Dayspring responded to me and sent out a follow-up press release on this, citing President Obama’s April 2009 speech in Prague where he set the goal of ridding the world of nuclear weapons.
Iran’s nuclear and ballistic missile activity poses a real threat, not just to the United States, but to Iran’s neighbors and our allies. The Czech Republic and Poland have been courageous in agreeing to host a defense against these missiles. As long as the threat from Iran persists, we will go forward with a missile defense system that is cost-effective and proven.
That’s the source for this criticism.
