IF THEY SHOULD BAR WARS... The battle over Missile Defense rages over at Transterrestrial Musings ... but the pro-shield crowd seems utterly uninterested in addressing the obvious logical failing of any system we could possibly erect:

Whether we're proposing to hit a bullet with a bullet, or repel incoming missiles with a magical force-shield, it would make not a whit of difference to a truly determined terrorist or rogue nation. When future Osamas and Saddams are convinced that we can transmute their incoming missiles into daisies with 100% accuracy, isn't it patently obvious that they would instead seek to deliver warheads by some other means? They could render our $150 billion investment useless with a fleet of barges and Cessnas!

You don't have to be a chess grandmaster to play out this game one move ahead.
