  7. LETTER: Iran threat calls for missile defense systemRead the original story w/Photo

    Wednesday | Richmond County Daily Journal

    Robert Lee's otherwise compelling op-ed on the sorry state of nuclear disarmament negotiations with Iran , missed one essential point: what should the U.S. do if these negotiations do in fact produce an unacceptably weak agreement? Part of this answer is, and can only be, the full funding of the GMD missile defense program; it's our only real defense against a missile launched at the U.S. homeland by Iran.
