The American Security Council has had a profound impact on foreign policy and national security through its strategy of Peace Through Strength, which was referenced by VP Pence during his recent visit with Japans Prime Minister when he stated “the U.S. knows peace comes through strength”. There are several pieces that make up the Peace Through Strength model one of which is energy independence. Recently the white house released the Presidents energy independence policy which was a much needed reform. The executive order signed by President Trump reverses severe regulations previously placed on American Jobs and energy production. The overreach of the government must be scaled back to let capitalism and growth strive. With the U.S. now poised to seek more development of our Nation’s vast energy resources we will subsequently reduce our oil imports from hostile nations thus limiting their ability to support and finance ISIS and other terrorist regimes. This new energy independence policy puts us one step closer to achieving Peace Through Strength. Let’s make sure our elected officials in Washington continue to focus on the importance of energy independence.

As the world awaits North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's next military move, a secretive U.S. Air Force complex on the other side of the planet continues to monitor the isolated nation for nuclear bomb tests.
Headquartered at Patrick Air Force Base, the Air Force Technical Applications Center operates and maintains the U.S. Atomic Energy Detection System. Operating on all seven continents, this $3 billion surveillance network of more than 3,600 high-tech sensors — including seismic sensors, ocean hydrophones and gamma detectors — identifies nuclear detonations underground, underwater, and in the Earth’s atmosphere and space.

Despite speculation that the United States might launch a pre-emptive strike against North Korea if it conducted another nuclear test, the chance it could happen appears slim, former U.S. officials say.
While the Trump administration insists it does not want to divulge what it will do to counter the regime's nuclear threat, it is unlikely that the U.S. "will do anything unless it sees what North Korea does," said David Gompert, former acting director of national intelligence in the Obama administration.
