Missile defence

The Pentagon just announced a successful trial of a new missile defence system. Does anybody know whether this could be a viable option for the UK, cost-wise or risk-wise? How much could we guarantee that no cruise missile could enter our airspace? And should I see this as the initial step to total disarmament?

  • Has to be 100% successful every time to convince any country to disarm.

    I do miss the arcades and the old games.
  • Sorry @Leuth - it seems like I have turned your serious thread into one about the Atari 2600.
  • Labour want everyone to be tolerant of any nuclear attack, it won't break us! and so there's no point in a defense system. Love wins over nuclear warfare
  • Can't help thinking it might be helpful in a world where Iran and N Korea are developing nuclear weapons (and Russia have them) that an ability to have an offensive threat would be as useful as a defence system.
  • This is the best form of defence..
