Obligatory link to anti-NMD article at Wired News. Someone quoted in the article compares NMD to the Maginot Line, a comparison that I’ve made before (though unfortunately not on this page). If we bring up the Maginot Line every time someone argues in favor of NMD, maybe this whole nasty idea will go away. Unfortunately, I have a strong feeling that the same aspect of human nature that brought about the arms race insures that NMD will never go away.
