Congressman Trent Franks (R-Ariz.), the chairman of both the Congressional Missile Defense Caucus and the Subcommittee on the Constitution, commented on Thursday morning’s Fox and Friends on the Fox News Channel about the successful missile test by the North Korean military.

“One of the most dangerous police states in the world has taken one giant step forward in its capability to reach the United States with a nuclear or electromagnetic pulse weapon under the unwatchful eye of President Obama,” said the five-term U.S. Representative.

“And as if to taunt an Administration neither country has any reason to fear, reports indicate North Korea utilized Iranian scientists in today’s successful launch,” he added.

While the United States has attempted to take a backseat to the Chinese in multi-lateral talks with the North Koreans, there continues to be a lack of direction in the U.S. policy regarding nuclear weapons in the hands of rogue nations such as Iran and North Korea.

“Both Iran and North Korea have certain grave things in common: both are unstable, oppressive, violent regimes; and both are pursuing a nuclear weapons capability under an unconvincing guise,” Rep. Franks said.

The conservative congressman noted that North Korea is claiming that it’s developing a space, not weapons, program — one that just so happens to produce intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of carrying nuclear payloads.

He also pointed out on Wednesday that Iran claims it seeks only a nuclear power program — one that apparently requires the pursuit of weapons-grade uranium.

“[B]ased on this Administration’s utter lack of leadership, it would seem both nations have successfully duped this President into sitting on the sidelines while they complete nuclear programs with which they can threaten the entire world,” laments Rep. Franks, who won a sixth term to the U.S. House of Representatives in November.
