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?

I believe the free world, if we make up our mind to, can
disarm this man peacefully, but if not we have the will and

reporters at the White House. .

demands ``that in itself would signal that the regime has
changed.'' Plenty of the past is ugly . . and we can't
