There is no nuclear defense system that can completely deter our nuclear capability. It only requires one of ours to hit a country, and then it is gameover. That can be from a submarine or a high altitude drop that has no heat signature to shoot down. This explains why the best defense against an invasion is a nuclear warhead. We have not seen any country that has nuclear capability invaded.

Not far! Solyndra, mayybe gave high hopes to some. (or, mayybe that was a conjob and where DID the money really go, sort of thing.)

Nope--we still have entrepreneurs in this country that would have gotten us further if it were possible, at this time.

Clean energy is like any young science in that it takes many years to become viable and be commonly-applied.

Our military is the reason our shores have not been attacked, en masse. Should we continue to rape the military budgets, decommission more squadrons and commands, and fail to update the equipment, then it will not matter what type of energy we have. The safety of a nation is as important as the health of an individual body. Without quality and the ability to ENJOY what we have, literally nothing else matters.

God bless our troops in every possible way, and thank God, for them.
