The U.S. will be spending less, in the coming months and years, on defending itself from missile attacks. As Tony Capaccio of Bloomberg reports:

The Pentagon will request $9.16 billion for missile defense programs for the 2014 fiscal year that begins Oct. 1, about $550 million less than this year’s $9.71 billion, according to internal budget figures ...

Meanwhile, as Sangwon Yoon reports, also on Bloomberg, North Korea “may detonate a nuclear device and carry out a missile test together as early as this week, South Korea’s government said, as the totalitarian regime defies international concern.”
