I think the plan is still on..but its a modified one from the star wars plan. The new one is the National Missile Defence shield  in which incomming missile would be shot down by laser mounted 747's, More powerful Patriot missiles or SAM's..there are a few other options in development. However in a recent article it was reported that..Russia has started to develop a new kind of ICBM which can be mannouverd in mid flight to such an extant..that any kind of missile shield would be ineffective against it.
Then again...for some wierd reason if russia decides to launch over 100 missiles(which it can)..shield or no shield..Usa is doomed. ph34r.gif

I think the US should construct a kind of 'Death star' utilising a 'Laser'.

If they're going to start shooting missles at each other, I wish they'd do it and get it over with. Decrease the surplus population and make the planet a wasteland just so they can prove a point.

The space based anti-missle program is still in the works at Lockheed Skunk works and EG&G in Nevada/Utah

We could live like they did in fallout  grin2.gif
Did you know that the 3rd fallout was almost finished when BIS was shutdown by Interplay?

Don't you think it would be even more dangerous to leave America as the soul possessor of WMDs as seems to be their objective.

The monkey has been their most stable and effective leader in recent years..infact the russian economy has started to improve abit. Eitherways, the russians seem far less trigger happy than their american counterparts, who always seem to be looking for an excuse to fight wars and use weapons of mass destruction.

Did you know...the russians or ertswhile USSR had offered a complete removal of nuclear weapons from their armoury, if the US reciprocated..however, The US government did not agree to it. Imagine..a world without Nuclear war heads and bombs...scary aint it ph34r.gif

I agree..but i was talking about a time..when such baddies werent created. But then again, a world without nuclear weapons would be a utopian world, which ofcourse is not a possibilty, atleast in the near future.

The chances of a nuclear weapon ever being used again are very slight,
I doubt their removal would lead to a "Utopian" world, there'd still be fighting, attrocities, slaughther, etc.
