Bush Starts New Arms Race While Claiming Otherwise

Today the Bush administration selected a design for the world’s first new nuclear weapon since the end of the Cold War. Despite their assertions of “not igniting an arms race”, numerous data points show President Bush’s sprint-like pursuit of new nuclear and space based weapons. Any country paying attention might not want the gap to grow too large, thus adding new nuclear and space capabilities themselves. Then the world can argue which are “offensive” and “defensive”.

Clearly they are all a waste, especially when swords could be beaten into plowshares and people train in ways of war no more…
