The obstructionists were wrong (again)

I wonder if the obstructionists on Capitol Hill ever get sick of being wrong? W.C. Varones, writing at PoliPundit, remarks:

Are you thinking what I’m thinking? … that today’s missile tests by North Korea are an excellent illustration of the necessity of missile defense? And that all those Democrats who limited funding for and tried to block development of Ronald Reagan’s “Star Wars” program were dangerously, irresponsibly wrong?

he argument was that missile defense would somehow upset the Mutual Assured Destruction balance and escalate the arms race with the Soviet Union. Well, now the Soviet Union is long gone. We now have rogue states with missiles, and a missile defense seems like a pretty good idea...
