The US has cancelled or postponed the plan to emplace missiles in Poland. This is good news. Increasing the volume of armaments is a ludicrous policy in a world where people are dying of malnutrition and thirst and where a gun has no practical purpose except to kill another person. The resources would be better spent on investing in education, housing, agriculture, roads etc in developing countries including Iran. If people have food, homes, jobs and friends they become uninterested in fighting.
