This past Monday after North Korea’s nuclear and missile tests, President Barack Obama said [1], “North Korea is directly and recklessly challenging the international community” and warranted action by the international community.

Since that time North Korea has: restarted its weapons grade nuclear plant [2], disavowed the 1954 armistice that ended the Korean War [3], and threatened military strikes against South Korea is they participated in U.S. efforts to intercept shipping to North Korea [4].

In that same time, President Obama flew to Beverly Hills [5] to raise $4 million for the Democratic National Committee.

The American people deserve better protection. Next Monday, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney will deliver an address at the Navy Memorial Burke Theater assessing the Obama administration’s response to Pyongyang, America’s larger leadership role in the world, and the need to adequately fund America’s national security efforts at no less than 4% of GDP for at least the next decade.

The event is part of Heritage’s Protect America Month, and you can register to attend the event here [6].
