A (Very) Brief Note About Missile Defense
Next Thursday, the Navy will attempt to shoot down a malfunctioning satellite. Of course, this sort of challenge is almost identical to the difficulties in hitting an inbound missile. For years, Democrats have ridiculed the Republican enthusiasm for missile defense, saying that such measures are over-expensive (when have the Democrats ever worried about expense?) and ineffective. Now that our missile defense system will get some use, one wonders if any liberals are reconsidering their opposition to this program.
