    Thanks for keeping up with the latest developments in the so-called “missile defense”, an unending drain of taxpayers’ money.

    It is a great work for worldwide peace.
    As we would be able to understand the performance and capability of the missile defence system to prevent any potential danger from the ballistic missile system.

    My research on the missile defence in the context of the international security and the strategic studies would be much more difficult without Your work, George. Keep it up, please!
    All the Best
