From The Indie: The full story is here. How to incite the mob in 3 easy stages: 1. Refer back to the cold war. 2. Make vague reference to the 'weaponisation of space'. 3. Include reportage about 'spy satellites' and 'secret missions'. $1.5Bn? This is a chickenfeed project by any reasonable comparison - they spent 10 times that amount on digital radios for NTC. 300lbs of plutonium over 30 years is barely sufficient for 2 small warheads per year - hardly cause for significant concern in the current world climate IMHO!
