Every serious nation knows that we cannot have war among major nations ever again. If we go with that level of warfare, in today's age of technology, the whole planet is finished. So what we do, is we go to space. We look at defense of the planet from the top down, and we take the threats from space, from extreme weather, and from silly nations playing war games, and incorporate them into one system, which will defend mankind as a whole. That is the intention behind the latest Russian proposal for a Strategic Defense of the Earth, a space-based system which would guard against missiles – as well as asteroids and other threats from space.
