On Missile Defense

The San Francisco Chronicle's Aug 12, 2001 edition contains a great article titled On Missile Defense: a pattern of deception. It outlines the Bush administration's plans for the militarization of space. A key paragraph:
Bruce Gagnon, international coordinator of the Global Network Against Weapons and National Power in Space, says that "This whole missile defense program is ultimately a Trojan horse. Pentagon officials understand that they can't come before the American people and say, 'Give us hundreds of billions of dollars so we can have offensive weapons in space.' We are talking about creating a new arms race in space that will make the aerospace corporations richer than one could imagine."
