United Nations Pressure

The United Nations urged President Bush today to keep his plans for a missile shield on earth and preserve outer space for peace. This comes at an interesting time in which China, Japan, and Russia have all shown mild interest in space based weapons systems. "Hitherto outer space has been militarized we concede but not weaponized. There has been no placement of weapons in outer space," said U.N. Under-Secretary General for disarmament affairs Jayantha Dhanapala.
