The Pentagon is taking a victory lap after President Donald Trump signed off on $700 billion in defense spending.
Touting the bill as a "matter of national security," Trump noted big-ticket defense procurements as well as the significant increase in spending for missile defense.
However, even that massive amount of spending may not be enough to full modernize U.S. missile defense systems.
The military's massive funding hike allocates $11.5 billion for the Missile Defense Agency, the largest amount ever. But there are brewing threats even greater than North Korea, particularly from other countries' outer space capabilities.
