Yep. Or in the game of interplanetary billiards, that the object ball doesn't break into pieces with trajectories of their own. Not without risks, is it?

OTOH mankind spends trillions for weaponry on hair-trigger alerts, sufficient for total self-annihilation.

It's important that we protect ourselves from external threats, so we can maintain that ability ;)

Meteor strike injures hundreds in central Russia

' A meteor crashing in Russia's Ural mountains has injured at least 950 people, as the shockwave blew out windows and rocked buildings.

[...] Vladimir Zhirinovsky, the leader of the ultra-nationalist Liberal Democratic Party, was quoted as saying: "Meteors are falling. Those are not meteors, it is Americans testing their new weapon."'
