Star Wars II: Bush's Dangerous Missile Shield Plan

More than 20 years ago, Ronald Reagan, already clearly well into the slide into the mental abyss of Alzheimer's Disease (and sadly, I suspect he was incompetent possibly well BEFORE the start of his 2nd term), pushed the Star Wars defense shield program while all the experts said it would not work.

Now, Bush is pushing it - in a measure he started the summer of 9/11 in his first major divide with the rest of the world - in a way that not only costs many, many times more than Reagan's while even less apt to "work", but he's winning whole new enemies. These enemies include, perhaps, nearly every world leader at the G-8 summit.
