Bolton: China Is One Reason US ‘Looking at Strengthening National Missile Defense’

The U.S. advisor to the president on national security affairs, John Bolton, has been a mainstay on American Sunday shows since the February 28 summit in Hanoi, Vietnam, with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Bolton’s been making the most of these appearances to underscore the administration’s continued maximalist unilateral disarmament demands of North Korea — the very reason the summit fell apart.
But it doesn’t stop there for Bolton. This past Sunday, on a New York radio show, he confirmed China’s worst fears about U.S. intentions regarding the Ground-based Midcourse Defense (GMD) system — the U.S. national missile defense system, designed to protect the country from intercontinental-range ballistic missiles (ICBMs).
