I’M SURE OBAMA AND HAGEL ARE ALL OVER THIS: A New Arms Race In Space. “In the age of communications and information technology, the safety of satellites is crucial. As an arms race in space begins to look a little more likely, it is important to remember that the cost of establishing missile defense for satellites would be yet another burden for the already overstretched U.S. defense budget. Anyone hoping that the U.S. will enjoy a ‘peace dividend’ after the end of the war in Afghanistan may be sorely disappointed.” It seems as if people who hoped for peace dividends over the last century either didn’t get them, or later wish they hadn’t.
