    "The administration also plans to study the idea of basing interceptors in space, so the U.S. can strike incoming enemy missiles during the first minutes of flight when the booster engines are still burning."

    But isn't there an international treaty in place that bans weapons of any kind in space?

    So are we looking at yet another trumpian unilateral treaty busting tweet that may place everyone on earth in even greater danger?

    While this may be an idea that should be explored, it is something that should be done with extreme caution, careful diplomacy, and above all WISDOM.

    All three of those qualities are sorely missing in America these days . . . .
