|After the past 8 years of allowing theft by foreign governments, we need an NMD more than ever. Don't you people wonder WHY China and Russia are against it? It doesn't strike you as odd that some countries don't want us to be able to defend ourselves? It is defensive, not a threat to mankind. Since China has and boasts of having nukes aimed at us, we need something to shoot them down. Patriot isn' designed for this; we are totally vulnerable. If you are against a national defense, you must be pro nuclear attack. And ignorant of world politics.
