Russia now joins China in soon having an indigenous ‘Star Wars” missile system. America, in the meantime, has nothing to show for itself and has chosen suicide over self defense. President Reagan’s vision of a star wars space-based defense system was destroyed one to two administrations down the road. He realized the threat from enemies and was ahead of the curve — by decades.
Russia’s defence ministry plans to deploy in 2017 a sophisticated new air missile defence system that can hit targets in space, a senior ministry source told Russian news agencies on Friday.
“The promising S-500 air defence missile system is at the development stage. It’s planned to be deployed in 2017,” the source was quoted as saying by the Interfax news agency.
The long-range system will be able to destroy targets even if they are in space and cover the whole Russian territory, the source added.
Russia is developing more and more effective missile defence systems for use as a deterrent while opposing plans by the United States to build a missile defence shield in Europe.
