B4 THE HAYS DAILY NEWS THURSDAY, JUNE 22,2006 U.S. turns away from talks of pre-emptive strike Officials say North Korea should halt missile plans By TERENCE HUNT ASSOCIATED PRESS BUDAPEST, Hungary — The United States said today that a U.S. missile-defense system under development has "limited operational capability" to protect against weapons such as the long- range missile North Korea is said to be near firing. National Security Adviser Stephen Hadley underscored U.S. calls for North Korea to abandon any plans for testing the ballistic missile believed capable of reaching U.S. soil. Hadley, who briefed reporters while traveling with President George Bush in Europe, also spurned a suggestion by former Defense Secretary William Perry that the United States launch a pre-emptive strike against the North Korean missile. "We think diplomacy is the right answer, and that is what we are pursuing," Hadley said when asked about Perry's recommendation in an opinion article pub- lished today in The Washington Post. "The way out of this is for North Korea to decide not to test this missile," Hadley said. The United States has spent hundreds of millions of dollars on missile defense systems during the past few decades. "We have a missile defense system ... what we call a long-range missile defense system that is basically a research, development, training, test kind of system," Hadley said. "It does... have some limited operational capability. And the purpose, of course, of a missile defense system is to defend .... the territory of the United States from attack." Hadley said it was hard to say what North Korea would do. "In terms of North Korean intentions, you know this is a very opaque society, and very hard to read," he said. "What we need to do is look at their capabilities and that's what we're trying to do," Hadley said. He said a missile test would disrupt the stalled six-party talks about North Korea's nuclear program. In the op-ed, Perry said the Bush administration should strike and destroy the missile before it can be launched. Perry noted the Bush administration's doctrine of pre-emption, which it used as the basis for sending U.S. troops into Iraq in 2003. "Therefore, if North Korea persists in its launch preparations, the United States should immediately make clear its intention to strike and destroy the North Korean Taepodong missile before it can be launched," Perry said in the piece, co-written with Ashton B. Carter, Perry's assistant at the Pentagon. Taepodong-2 missile Tensions in the Pacific region have increased over North Korea's apparent plans to test- fire a long-range missile.
