    Unfortunately it won't go to R&D, it will go to social programs like all liberal administrations.

    In my view your position about abandoning the missle defense system ( missles/radar) cannot be more wrong. The missle defense was not necessarily as a shield against the Ranting Runts of Ramadan aka Iranians it is a shield against any evil threat to Europe. That includes Russia and it's surrogates. We all understand that the actual number of missles of the shield would not deflect a full frontal assault by the vodka crazed Russians but it is a strong symbolic middle finger aimed at the sons of the Bolsheviks.

    President Obam made a very serious error in judgement by this policy. He will learn probably soon that the vodka swilling Czaristas cannot be trusted to behave as civilized humans and need to be show that we are ready to use the fist in the face.

    The shield could only stop a tiny % of Russian missiles. It really wouldn't provide any defense at all from Russia.
    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.

    Russia's ICBMs would travel north, over the pole. There is no way any of the missiles from Czech or Poland could ever reach them, once launched. The shield was of no threat whatsoever to Russia . . . other than the diplomatic unpleasantness of former Warsaw Pact nations then being firmly behind Western lines.

    It would be like Russia putting S-400 in the Confederacy.

    The above are the type of comments and narrow minded focus that makes you want to pull your hair out!!

    The Cold War ended nearly 30 years ago and yet the Russians are still the threat?

    Radical Islam is the threat of TODAY and yet the opposition argues AGAINST establishing a defensive posture that would act as a deterant to any Middle Eastern threat against our national security interest abroad or against our Eurapean allies!?! Absolutely unbelievable!!!
