    The destabilizing paradox of missile defense

    There is a strange paradox when it comes to anti-missile defense: while in theory seeming to increase stability by providing a shield against incoming missiles launched by an adversary, in practice an anti-missile system tends to be destabilizing and increase tension.  The reason is that such a missile “defense” reinforces the second strike capability of the deploying nation and could thus increase the likelihood of a pre-emptive first strike by the nation against which the system is deployed.

    TEHRAN - For those misguided individuals who think there exists a democratic process in the United States to elect the president, think again.  Aside from the reality that the popular vote for the U.S. leader is at best an election to determine the votes of the ethereal elite who will actually vote for the president in December, there is the issue of just who counts the votes, how they are counted and who owns the voting machines.
