"From their point of view, missile "defense" is the perfect weapon system: it is unnecessary; it doesn't have to work as defense; it generates hundreds of billions of dollars in direct revenue; and the cherry on top of the sundae is that since it invites retaliation by China and Russia, it delivers a new, built-in global arms race, a vast new opportunity to arm all sides of all new global conflicts for the next half century. It is the Mother of All Self Licking Ice Cream Cones."

Eventually all militaristic societies have crumbled due to the hands of greed. The United States continues to follow this trend. The true failing of the United States in the past century and so far in this one will be found in the foolish amount of money spent on weapons. In the future our society will be studied thoughtfully with constant reminders of a path which you should not take.
