    Missile Defense

Technology has always found its greatest consumer in a nation's war and defense efforts. Since the last attempts at a "Star Wars" defense system, has technology changed considerably enough to make the latest Missile Defense initiatives more successful? Can such an application of science be successful? Is a militarized space inevitable, necessary or impossible?

Read Debates, a new Web-only feature culled from Readers' Opinions, published every Thursday.

Quote Joseph ROTBLAT-- Through education and people interacting with each other through the Internet, through e-mail, mobile telephones and so on. People will feel less a subject of their own nation and more members of humankind. They will interact much more with people of other nations than of their own and gradually the role of nations will come to an end.

  • there's an increasingly hypocritical stance on the parts of both of the US and UK governments

  • Both are ready to go to war to rid others of the kinds of weapons they themselves possess

  • WHAT SORT OF MORALITY IS THIS ?
