    Missile Defense

Russian military leaders have expressed concern about US plans for a national missile defense system. Will defense technology be limited by possibilities for a strategic imbalance? Is this just SDI all over again?

Process model's enable feedback. The value of feedback is that the provider can help ensure that s/he is meeting the real NEEDS of clients.

How many leaders have a feedback model regarding the wishes of their electorate with respect to the advocation by the Political Strategist to murder 'Others' ?

Hello and greetings from the south pacific,where last week the missle defence system was tested,and according to propaganda sources was a "success".The pig headed arrogance of the Bush administration,in pursuing this so stubbornly,is a total disaster in progress,on a global level,let alone an american one.Unfortunately the Bush dynasty has continued, in the form of a demon spawn,placed there by the people who pushed the "star wars" concept nearly 20 years ago.Now we have an American President,who arguably,won his mandate thanks to sharp lawyers,and "old money",about to re-boot the cold war,and put worldwide opinion even further than it already is,against George w Bush, and the American public who apparently voted for him.I love America and it's people,but it appears that,someone ,anyone, has got to wake up and let the people know about the madness.-Mark Williams New Zealand

The arrogant attitude re MD is

'if it's off shore there is no law'

Notice how the major powers select and bully the smaller nations in the Pacific to 'test' out MD and nuclear horrors!

The further attitude, that those not in the home country are 'other' and have no human-rights, can be killed or let live, at the whim of the major power is very disconcerting.

All human beings from all countries have a right to RIGHTS ?

    The president praised Mr Blair's willingness to hear his case on missile defence - which he has already rehearsed when they met at Camp David in February. "The thing I appreciate about the prime minister is that he is willing to think anew as we move into the future. It is hard for countries to commit to vague notions. But there are some leaders who just out of hand reject any willingness to think anew about security. The prime minister is not that way.",7369,524590,00.html

I'll be away tending to a family matter for three days (perhaps a little less).

With the ingenuity the Bush administration is now devoting to making its case for missile defense (and you have to credit them with ingenuity and initiative on this) they could accomplish so much useful !

What they are doing now is making a mess much worse, rather than fixing it.

With the facts that apply on missile defense - there isn't any question what the proper Harvard Business School approach shoud be. Assets in a hopeless program, human and institutional, should be redeployed to where they can do some good.

President Bush made shift to pass through HBS with an MBA - and he should know what leadership takes in a case like this.
