Russian military leaders have expressed concern about US plans
for a national missile defense system. Will defense technology be
limited by possibilities for a strategic imbalance? Is this just SDI
all over again?

Let's hope Bwsh doesn't fall off his charger (as per Superman)
... cloning re stem cells has just been outlawed curtesy of The
Pope! Another dark shadow running the USA.

Pavalov had a reward system : !
Take the time to read those verses - i think i'd be looking for a
NEW anthem more suited to a C21 Outlook ... some of those
conservative lyrics seem dated!

The "Washington Times" in the news...
Propaganda's Triumph - http://www.consortiumnews.com/2001/053001a.html
RUSSIAN DEFENCE MINISTRY: WE DO NOT HAVE ANY MISSILES! - http://english.pravda.ru/main/2001/07/31/11382.html
All the training starts of intercontinental ballistic missiles
are declared between Russia and the USA. That is why it would be
absurd to inform referring to CIA about secret testing by Russia a
new intercontinental ballistic missile, Russian Defence Ministry
official commented today the article in ‘Washington Times’. If a
missile’s training start was realized by Russia, the USA would be
officially informed about it. Let us remember, that yesterday
‘Washington Times’ reported a new intercontinental missile had been
tested in Russia, built on a completely new principle: as an oxidant
outboard oxygen is used here, due to this principle missile’s flight
range and speed become much bigger. Any official comments of US
authorities have not appeared yet, though Russian Defence Ministry
reacted ‘Washington Times’ publication only today, completely
refuting the reported fact.
I would suggest the new discussion topic: "Is there a need for a
propaganda in a democratic society?";)

UNMIK SUSPECTS 900 SERBS WERE BURIED IN SUVA REKA MASS GRAVE - http://english.pravda.ru/main/2001/07/31/11364.html
"UNMIK (United Nations Mission in Kosovo) suspects that 900 Serbs
and non-Albanians, killed after the deployment of KFOR troops in
Kosovo, were buried in a mass grave in Suva Reka near Prizren"
After the deployment of KFOR troops in Kosovo.
And, as all know, the KLA was "disarmed".

12:24 VATICAN WARTIME RECORDS COVER UP IN RESPONSE TO NAZI
GOLD LAWSUIT - http://english.pravda.ru/main/2001/07/31/11362.html
"The Vatican yesterday refused requests from its own Catholic
Jewish Historical Commission and major Jewish organizations to
release World War II records so that scholars could learn exactly
what the Vatican knew about the Holocaust. More detail... "
And I wonder what the British and Americans knew as well. For
example, why the rail-roads to the concentration camps where never
even attempted to be destroyed or bombed?

On the POPE. The strong Catholics i know in Australia tell me
that they listen to what the church says ... and then - turn it
around and do exactly the opposite, or what they like. This is where
Bwsh fell down - re stem cells, he doesn't realise that for sanity
it is necessary to do what pleases the American people. 70% of
American Catholics wanted stem cell research - as did Christopher
Using the above scatty logic, if the Vatican say they have no
plundered treasures - it's a sure bet they do! They're from the 'old
school' of landlordship!

7/31/01 11:42am Reading the first article here one notes that
Rumsfield likes to tinker around with Volvos. Sweedish engineering.
Made by teams rather than conveyor belt approaches to division of
labour with an emphasis on quality production.
Applying a little psychology here, it's obvious that the type of
'engineering' that R. likes is simple, functional and powered for
the job in hand.
This makes him a potential supporter of green engineering. Were
the USA turning out beautiful technology designed to run
efficiently, then America could effectively change, for the better,
and upgrade the standards for those 'villages' in the world that
have unfortunate postcodes. Making Rumsfield one very PROUD American
wonder if he sees the problem with the National Anthem
all those multimillion dollared lyric writers in the USA and
one totally inadequate anthem!
