if a rifle could shoot another bullet out of the air, i would be pretty
impressed with it, even in a staged arena.
but it's a false analogy.
defensive technology has lagged behind offensive tech since crossbows went
through medieval armor. i for one am impressed and supportive of blowing up
weapons instead of people. nukes are expensive, blowing one up is a big
reduction in enemy asset and potential destruction.
this also strikes me as kind of unconstructive. much as this response is
needless opinion and factless....
