In 2005 the Washington Post reported,
In Canada, public opinion polls also have shown overwhelming dislike of President Bush and opposition to his foreign policies, which are seen by many Canadians as overly aggressive. Those polls have left the Parliament deeply divided on the missile defense system, and Martin apparently concluded he could not risk a floor fight on the issue.
BMD will consume vast amounts of taxpayer resources and will force all the superpowers to engage in military build up’s to perceived superiority. This is the real danger because the most logical and intelligent form of attack would be much more covert than firing a missile from one country at another. It’s a lot harder to hide who delivered the attack and a country risks having the rest of the world gang up on them if they choose this route. A bad idea…its time to let it lie.
