    Hi Richard,
    
    as stated by Mr. Ronald Reagan in 1989 - if I can remember well the right
    year - we should not consider the concept of WAR simply an our homeworld
    one; I fully subscribe this point of view; we should not expect to be
    threatened only from Chinese rockets or, in the future, from the ones
    probably could come from a Pan-Islamic alliance; we must reasonably consider
    other issues, I mean - please do not laugh - not coming only from Earth
    but - why not? - from the outer space.
    
    It is not important that you believe in UFOs:  they can exist as alien
    spacecrafts or not - my opinion is YES but it makes not difference in this
    subject - but we cannot assert that the danger to be attacked in the future
    (in one minute or in one century) from alien military forces is not a valid
    topic.
    
    So, in my opinion, having something like laser battlestations in space is
    not a matter of proud but simply a matter of security; well, I do not
    believe they could be effective against UFOs, but they could be a starting
    point to have something useful for the future in order to try to defend us
    from eventual alien threats.
    
    Sincerely,
    
    Fabio Siciliano (Italy).
