Another Really Expensive Dumb Idea
BBC News is reporting that the first test in almost two years of the planned multi-billion dollar US anti-missile shield has failed. According to the report, the Pentagon is spending $10 billion a year on the missile system, meant to be operational by the end of 2004. The Missile Defense Agency said an "unknown anomaly" caused the failure. The Peach sees this as yet another sign of how this administration is attempting to float the economy by pumping loads of money into the Pentagon for yet another really stupid idea.
