Boeing's Airborne Laser said to complete key test


uk.reuters.com

WASHINGTON, July 16 (Reuters) - A modified Boeing Co. (BA.N: Quote, Profile, Research) 747 designed to be part of an emerging U.S. antimissile shield has successfully completed an important flight test, the Pentagon's Missile Defense Agency and Boeing said on Monday.

The airborne laser is to be the first warplane relying entirely on a directed energy device as a weapon. It is designed to destroy an enemy ballistic missile shortly after it is launched, in the "boost phase" of its flight path.

So the U.S says to Russia. "We want to put a missle defense shield in your backyard".
Russia says "No your not".
U.S says "Oh yes we are"
Russia says "Put your Missles on platforms in the ocean"
U.S says" No way".
Russia says" Ok..Well just point our missles at Europe".
U.S says " OK.. Check out our new Boeing with laser's.."

Does anyone else see this childish game unfolding?

Except in this case were dealling with the potential for nuclear disaster.
It does seem the rhetoric has escalated.

Russia stoped trying to match the USA money for money, numbers for numbers ages ago. If this is the beginning of a new cold war (or the admitting of a current one) then it will become clear that Russia has been looking for the weakenesses and to devolop around them.

War by proxy anyone? - who brought all them shiny Sunburns wot Russia made? (Iran, China some others, no westerners!!)
