London 2012: Missiles may be placed at residential flats

The Ministry of Defence is considering placing surface-to-air missiles on residential flats during the Olympics.

An east London estate, where 700 people live, has received leaflets saying a “Higher Velocity Missile System” could be placed on a water tower.

If the Brits are entertaining such ideas, I hate to imagine what sorts of artillery would be mounted atop buildings in NYC to defend the games.
