Missle Defense update

Matt Drudge has an unlinked headline on his Website (as of October 2 at 11:45 p.m.), that states, “MISSILE DEFENSE SYSTEM IS UP AND RUNNING, MILITARY SAYS…”

Russia is still opposed, as are other nations. While reading through Dutch: A Memoir (a biography on President Ronald Reagan, mention is made of Reagan’s meeting in Iceland with Soviet Union premier Mikhail Gorbachev in 1986. The Strategic Defense Initiative, a.k.a. SDI, (or “Star Wars” by its critics) was a sensitive topic of discussion. At one point during their debates, Gorbachev told Reagan that his scientists in Russia told him that the missle defense system was a scientific impossibility.

Reagan’s response: if it’s impossible, why are you so against America pursuing it?

I don’t know what Gorbachev’s response, but Reagan’s question was very relevant. If you think it’s so useless, why are you so against us trying to develop it?

Just wondering…
