Rude Awakening To Bush's Missile Defense Dreams - Scott Ritter
By Scott Ritter
Christian Science Monitor
1-6-5

DELMAR, NY - On Christmas Eve 2004, the Russian Strategic Missile Force test fired an advanced SS-27 Topol-M road-mobile intercontinental ballistic Missile (ICBM). This test probably invalidated the entire premise and technology used in the National Missile Defense (NMD) system currently being developed and deployed by the Bush administration, and at the same time called into question the validity of the administration's entire approach to arms control and disarmament.

7. Star Wars is the funneling of mucho billions of dollars to a chosen few
and little else IMHO, but there I go being cynical.

3. WHo needs a defense shield when we have Jesus?
Why, all we have to do is get the Presidential Prayer Team to pray the missiles away...

6. I love Scott Ritter
Now if MSM is looking for replacements for shows like Crossfire, give Scott a half hour show to interview people.
THAT would be journalism.
