I doubt this system more than I doubt Bush's IQ. My reasoning behind this is:
1) In order to be an EFFECTIVE anti-missile system, they will have to be more easily produced than a nuke itself. Considering that pic, the size of
the missile alone gives it away that it will not be an effective counter because it will consume valuable resources and may not even take less time to
produce/take less resources than an actual nuke.
2) It must be able to differentiate between a cruise missile, IRBM, and ICBM.
3) It's a missile. It can be flooded. If I launch two nukes and they launch one anti-nuke...well, you get the idea.
4) Supporting the nuke flood theory, so many nukes have already been produced. If anti-nukes are to just now begin production (highly doubtful), there
is likely never going to be enough anti-nukes in dire situations.
Just my thoughts on the matter. I wouldn't trust this at all if I were you. Heck, building a fallout shelter in your backyard is safer than this
. Besides, I don't trust the government
