All Putin has are his nukes... If US finds a weapon to make nuclear weapons useless, Russia loses all the leverage.
On March 23, 1983, in a nationally televised address on national security, President Ronald Reagan proposed the development of the technology to intercept enemy nuclear missiles. The plan, called the Strategic Defense Initiative, or S.D.I., was dubbed “Star Wars” by its critics.
The New York Times reported: “In effect, Mr. Reagan proposed to make obsolete the current United States policy of relying on massive retaliation by its ballistic missiles to counter the threat of a Soviet nuclear attack.”
The technology proposed by President Reagan was “decades away from reality,” according to The Times. “White House officials said the new program might involve lasers, microwave devices, particle beams and projectile beams. These devices, most of which are in a very early stage of development, in theory could be directed from satellites, airplanes or land-based installations to shoot down missiles in the air.”
Delhommeys right. people who think we have anything actually leftist in this country have never traveled to other countries. In the mid 90s I spent May First watching the Communists have a freaking giant parade down the main street in Frankfurt Germany.
Today we had like 25 protesters at Duke and they were all split on what they wanted to protest, then went back home to watch Dancing with the Stars.
