Lasers and EMP weapons have come a long ways since. I believe some are even operational now, at least groundside.

U.S.-Israel Davidís Sling Weapon System Intercepts Target During Integrated Flight Test
The Israel Missile Defense Organization and the U.S. Missile Defense Agency completed a successful intercept test today of the Davidís Sling Weapon System.
"This test, designated Davidís Sling Test Ė 2 (DST-2), is the second intercept test of the Stunner interceptor for the Davidís Sling Weapon System, and was conducted at a test range in southern Israel.
A target missile was launched and tracked by the systemís multi-mission radar. The radar transferred flight information to the battle management control system. The Stunner interceptor successfully performed its planned trajectory and destroyed the target."
You are a moron.
FYi, missiles existed BEFORE sdi was even thought of. In fact, they were a development of German war time technology

I still see no space lasers and multiple launch space platforms and no defensive xray lasers and no neutral particle beam weapons etc, etc that were hyped during the heat of the cold war

Yes thatís more or less what I said in ďIt failed in research and developmentĒ

As yet, anything that the US (most advanced technologically) or anyone else has against extra terrestrial threat is about as useful as a monkey p|ssing in the Atlantic

Those are ground based systems, just developed anti aircraft and missiles. Conventional weaponry shooting down incoming. SDI was targeting ICBM's as they rose and before they headed down. Was more difficult because much larger area and distances covered. The difference between shooting a clay pigeon out of the traphouse and one a couple of hundred yards away.

Even so, this system is a result of Reagan's move into missile defense and work on SDI.

Missile Defense Agency, U.S. Department of Defense:

"More than 25 years ago, President Ronald Reagan challenged the U.S. scientific community to develop antiballistic missile technologies that would improve our national security and reduce our reliance on nuclear weapons. Today, the Missile Defense Agency, or MDA, is answering that challenge. The MDA has fielded an initial capability to protect the U.S and our allies against limited ballistic missile attack. The Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) is becoming more integrated, robust, and global every day."

SDI was also a driving force in the technology for space sensors, space communications, and other areas important to the armed forces.

Some successful testing of SDI was done, but the system succumbed to funding concerns.

Thanks, that's a good one.

Now Obamajab can pack the D.C. circuit with hippie radicals.

How did you like the way the "conservative" Chief Justice got around the Constitution on Obamacare?

I bet you liked it. All he had to do was white-out Article I.

That's absurd.
You aren't subsidizing the hamburgers.

If not, you would have to subsidize the burger flipper more.
.. yes, as taxpayers, we subsidize the income of fast-food workers instead of insisting employers pay them a living wage and pass it on to the consumer ..

.. if you go to a dine-in restaurant and order a burger, you probably tip the server. Yes,(s)he's making minimum wage but when you add gratuity, you're paying the true price ..

.. to reduce product cost, fast-food restaurants do not factor in the true value of service. This business model generates profit and demeans the worth of an employee. If anything, it is the ultimate elitist attitude ..

.. if fast-food restaurants paid their employees a livable wage, your burger would cost an additional $1.00. Instead, workers must depend on government handouts to survive ..

.. for me, the picture is wrong. Along with demeaning the value of service people by forcing them to apply for charity, it places an unnecessary tax burden on everyone ..

.. who benefits? The person who likes Big Macs and is too lazy to cook a nutritional meal? How about the restaurant owner? Can't you see anything wrong with the picture ??..

But he can't win.

Did you know Cruz has argued 9 cases before the U.S. Supreme Court? Has a debating medal from Princeton?

But he can't be as smart as Harry Reid, huh?

If Reagan were coming onto the scene now, he couldn't get the nomination.

That's how far left we've moved.

Nothing infinite exists in reality, furthermore, it is impossible for it to exist.

That had been a developing technology since long before. The ABM treaty sought limits on it, officially. Reagan abrogated the treaty, thus starting a new arms race. It violated the MAD doctrine.

You may have noticed Russia has been quite competent in their rockets and space endeavors for quite some time. We rely on them now. Nice and steady versus some grandstanding on our part. Nice that push didn't come to shove.
