I came across an interesting issue, one I'd be curious to hear comment on 
from the supporters of NMD. In discussing the mechanics of responding to a 
missile attack, especially in light of a missile defense, the problem of 
human - and then civilian - control of the system came into question. It 
appears that the time frames projected in a scenario preclude the 
intervention of the National Command Authority. That is, machines and 
technicians will be making the big decisions.

The question of sovereignty has always been framed in the international 
arena, with respect to other states or actors. But technology seems to 
present us with another sovereignty conundrum.

Personally, I am more squeamish about giving over control to a machine than 
to another group or person.
