Global Ballistic Missile Defense Test?

The United States military Kinetic Energy Interceptor [KEI] [video] capability is being put to the test next week [video] when the White House [video] ordered shootdown of a malfunctioning top secret military satellite known as NROL-21 or USA-193 last January and made public a few weeks ago.

Military planners [video] have created a scenario called "Global Ballistic Missile Defense Planning 2017" [video] to adeptly provide a wide range of new and very technologically precise missile defense technologies to meet threats. Stay tuned for the US Navy to set its sights on the very next step in global missile defense.

is not amused [video]. Some international observers believe the planned shootdown of NRO-21 is America's answer to China [video] for its January 2007 downing of an orbiting weather satellite [video].

putin is a killer and a thug. china is run by killers and thugs. I would rather upset a thug who wishes me harm AND have a shiel then put down my shield so the killer/thug carps less to weak minded reporters. Its the chiken-egg question. WE make BMD because THEY have nukes and want to harm us, not the other way around.

So, how much is a city worth? not as much as BMD
