How to use missile in a sentence?

  1. Ronald Reagan:

    The vote on the Peacekeeper is also a vote on Geneva. Rejecting the Peacekeeper will knock the legs out from under the negotiating table. (On importance of the MX missile)

  2. Jim Mattis:

    ( AP Photo/Jacquelyn Martin) The news followedremarks from Defense Secretary Jim Mattis on Monday that the U.S. military would take out any North Korean missile spotted heading for American soil, including Guam. Jim Mattis said the U.S. would detect a missile of that nature heading towards Guam within moments. If North Korea fires at the U.S., North Korea could escalate into war very quickly.

  3. Paul Ryan:

    As the president himself has acknowledged, Iran is likely to use this cash infusion -- more than $100 billion in total -- to finance terrorists, this comes just weeks after Tehran's most recent illegal ballistic missile test, and just days after the (Iran Revolutionary Guard Corps) detained 10 American sailors. A bipartisan majority in the House voted to reject this deal in the first place, and we will continue to do everything possible to prevent a nuclear Iran.

  4. Antony Blinken:

    Every engagement in diplomacy has been designed to further the nuclear program, not to find a way out... I just urge people not to let the tactical ambiguity obstruct the strategic clarity about North Korea that we have, so we should not be overly encouraged if suddenly (North Korea leader Kim Jong Un) proposes dialogue tomorrow, nor should we be overly surprised, or discouraged, if there’s an ICBM (intercontinental ballistic missile) launch by Sunday.

  5. Igor Ivanov:

    It can be assured that once the U.S. deploys its missile defense system in Poland, Russia would respond by deploying its own missile defense system in Kaliningrad.
