Anti-Missile Defenses For Commercial Jets

Omeger Omeger writes  |  about 8 years ago The AP reports that http://www.cnn.com/2007/TECH/01/16/airline.anti.missile.ap/index.htmlcommercial jets with anti-missle defense systems. Sen. Barbara Baxter (D-California) is one of the supporters of the system. She, and other members of Congress are hoping to equip all US commercial passenger liners with this system in 20 years, which will cost billions of dollars. Is this good common sense or the costly future of a society based around fear of terrorism? Please fix the HTML in this.
