'Star Wars': The sequel

The Boston Globe had a good editorial piece on the Star Wars project, worth a look.

Instead of directing finite resources toward protecting America against likely threats, he is lavishing billions of dollars on a system that has not been tested under the realistic conditions that would obtain in the unlikely event America came under attack from ballistic missiles launched by North Korea. Instead of funding research that might one day make possible an effective defense against ballistic missiles, Bush is spending $10.2 billion this year – the single biggest item in the defense budget – on a system whose flaws independent scientists regard as insurmountable.
