Marco Rubio on North Korea

Rubio wants to put North Korea back on the list of state sponsors of terror, add additional sanctions, rebuild military alliances in the Asia-Pacific region and recommit to missile defense.

AUDIENCE MEMBER: Senator Rubio you brought up North Korea. What (and of course we still have to verify it) what specifically would you do with the North Korean problem?

MARCO RUBIO: At least four things: number one North Korea needs to be back on the list of state sponsors of terror. They should never have been removed to begin with. They need to be put back on that list. Number two additional sanctions, especially on their leadership who hold significant assets overseas. They need to be punished individually because while that country has no economy their leaders are very wealthy. Number three is we need to rebuild our military alliances in the Asia pacific region, and that includes with the Japanese and others. It goes back to the point I made about our navy. Our navy is technologically very capable but our ships still cannot be in two places at once. And so you cannot provide the level of security we need in the Asia pacific region with the smallest navy in 100 years. Not to mention the issues we have with China and the South China Sea, So rebuilding our military especially our navy and the Asia pacific region in particular is critically important. And number four we need to recommit to missile defense. North Korea already possesses intercontinental missiles capable of reaching Hawaii and Guam and maybe even the west coast of the United States. We need a comprehensive missile defense system for the entire continental United States both west coast and east coast to guard against the Iranian threat but also to guard against the North Korea threat. And that’s a multi-faceted defense system. It involves naval assets near and theater and includes working with the Japanese that have a very capable navy but it also includes missile defense units deployed both on the east coast and west coast of the United States. Because if trends continue this lunatic in North Korea will possess a missile and a warhead capable of reaching the U.S and we better be capable of shooting it down before it gets anywhere near us and we need to invest and recommit to that again.
