    I can see its viability against enemies that only have the resources to fire single missiles such as North Korea or Iran.

    Againt the Russians and Chinese, you are correct.

    However, the NMD is intended to keep screwballs like Iran and North Korea from launching a missle or two (up to 50, in its final form) -- Rogue States who are nowhere as predictable.

This could lead to cheap private schools that don't offer quality education, but are just cheaper than the other schools around (capitalism)
    False choice.

    Not like Russia needs long-range missiles anyway. Apparently a civilian living in Russia could shoot Sarah Palin from his home.
    According to Tina Fey, I guess.

    We shoot down one defenseless missile under controlled conditions. Whoop-dee-do. Considering all of the missions have been controlled before, why don't we have a 100% kill ratio?
    LMAO! Are you serious? Your standard would have us foregoing any new research and development unless testing would prove to be 100% successful.

    Why don't we have a 100% kill ratio? Well, lets see, maybe because shooting a missile at another missile is massively complex operation. Your thinking would have had the US abandon even SAM development knowing that SAM testing didn't result in 100% success.

    If you think you can show that the NMD is intended to protect the US from a Russian resiudal 2nd strike after a pre-empritve US strike, please do.

    Otherwise, you;re just talking out your butt.

    Please make sure you account for Russian SLBM capabilities.

    I never mentioned Russia in this thread, these missiles are currently to subdue any response from the ME.

    I love how you respond with ridiculous statements acting as if I said anything even close to them.

    Of the three misses, 2 came from failures in surrogate stystmes being used as a stand-in for parts of the NMD system that had not yet been installed/produced.

    Never mind that most people know that NO system is 100%.

    You said:

    Yeah, we all know the main reason for the missile defense is to prevent a counter attack.
    Who/what were you taking about, if not preventing a counter-attack from the Russians after a US first-strike?

    Lets say Iran sending a missile towards Israel after they attack Iran's nuclear program.

    How does the NMD affect this?

    Did you even read your own articles before posting them?
