28. I remember a news story years ago
just after the inauguration of the Bush Junta and before 9-11.
The Junta was agreeing not to make any noise about China increasing its nuclear arsenal, provided that the Junta could spend billions pursuing Star Wars in violation of the ABM Treaty.

Their number one priority at the time was the Star Wars boondoggle. The outgoing Clinton administration had warned them that their top priority should be anti-terrorism, but of course, anything Clinton was for they were against.
