How I have missed the cold war...
Looks like the cold war is back.
President Vladimir Putin said Wednesday that Russia is developing a new form of nuclear missile unlike those held by other countries, news agencies reported.
Earlier this year, a senior Defense Ministry official was quoted as telling news agencies that Russia had developed a weapon that could make the United States' proposed missile-defense system useless. Details were not given, but military analysts said the claimed new weapon could be a hypersonic cruise missile or maneuverable ballistic missile warheads.
So... this "missile shield" bush is so keen to deploy has never proven that its effective even against missile technology we know about now, and the Russians reportedly already have new evasion techniques. Let me tell you, I'm feeling all warm and comfortable now!
Too bad no one mentioned that building a "missile shield" would mostly just be effective at resparking an arms race. Oh wait, they did.
