Idee Fixe

I am really puzzled as to the conservative obsession with missile defense. The fact that North Korea has proven it can't launch of missile capable of reaching Alaska is a reason to build an expensive shield that doesn't work? Obviously there are a certain number of companies that stand to make a lot of money off this project, but surely there's something less useless we could be building for an equal fee.

It's obviously the defense corporations. They lobby the politicians to produce such things and pay them off with campaign contributions, while the politicians can survive while "KEEPING AMERICA SAFE" (TM)
