What is your opinion regarding the Son of Star Wars Missile Defense System

President George W. Bush and outgoing President Valdimir Putin met recently and apparently got along together well even though there is still disagreement about the Son of Star Wars -- Missile Defense system that this Administration would like to expand. Putin is opposed to the placement of 10 missile intercepers in Poland and forward facing radar systems in the Czech Republic. Bush has stated that these are not a threat to Russia as they are too close to Russian ICBM sites to target those missiles but are instead geared toward deflecting possible attacks from North Korea and from Iran who are both said to be developing nuclear weapons. This system is said to also have a space based detection and defense system which is why it has been classed Star Wars. I am wondering what you think about such a system, if you think it will work, and if you think such a system is worth risking relations with other nations, and if you think that there are other reasons why this system is being developed that are perhaps not being mentioned... What is your opinion on this?

That is a scary thought... I would rather prepare for the next world peace but that would not make anyone any money... It though would save a lot of it and a lot of people too. It is sad that some value life so little that they wage war against anyone else.

not sure byut I do beleive we have one in place here and have for along time but the rockets arent that long ranged where it could save Russia from an attck they do need something close to keep the threats away form all countries!

I must admit that I am not in agreement with the star wars plan because it means militarizing space... and will add to the arms race.

am not sure about space they can hardly get any people up there for very long but then our skies are full of spy satalites as it is no telling where they are spying at.
