Our Newest Op Ed
- By R.A. Hawkins
There are quite a few people who think that our world is far more dangerous now than it ever was. They are wrong, but fifth column thinking makes it seem so and tends to perpetuate the foolishness that makes the world dangerous. We no longer see things clearly or deal with them directly. I always liked the way Einstein said it: "In my opinion, only two things are infinite. The universe and human stupidity, but I'm not sure about the first."
On November 1st the Russians tested a new re-entry vehicle that is designed to dodge one of our ABMs. I would like to add as a side note that it was Bill Clinton that decided our ABM system had to be a bullet hitting a bullet. That made it easier for the enemy to get around our system once it was created. We'll be able to fix that little problem without too much trouble however.
Many see this new re-entry vehicle as a return to the cold war. I'm not one of them; I never did buy into the mantra about the peace dividend, and the only thing that really happened is that the enemy put a smiley face on their dark empire. One of the problems with tyranny is that it's a lot like getting a rash. It takes a long time to get rid of it. The Soviet Union had a lot to do with creating Hitler and they also helped to create Red China. Don't forget that Hitler turned on Russia and the Red Chinese will eventually turn on Russia too..............
