Aero-News Quote of the Day
"I think that people remember a time some years ago when
missile defense was extremely controversial and a lot of people
questioned whether it would work or not, and there was always a
struggle in the Congress to get money for missile defense. One of
the significant changes that has taken place in Washington over the
past few years has been a general recognition that the development
of the system has proceeded, that it does have capability, and that
it is increasingly sophisticated in terms of the kind of challenges
that it may be able to beat -- although it still (is) very much
designed for a very limited kind of threat."
