More on Missile Defenses

Everyone seems to be surprised that the Iranians tried to hide part of their nuclear program, as disclosed last week; the more honest are asking if perhaps additional sections remain to be discovered. It's at moments like these one can't help scratching one's head in perplexion. Israel has been warning the Iranians are trying to achieve nuclear weapons for, what, 10 years? 12? 15? Hello? Anyone out there?

Barry Rubin offers an interesting column about the potential effectiveness of anti-missile defense systems. He'd better be right, because the more convincing they look, the more pause they'll give the Iranians and their proxies, and the fewer people will get killed on all sides.
