Technology has always found its greatest consumer in a nation's
war and defense efforts. Since the last attempts at a "Star Wars"
defense system, has technology changed considerably enough to make
the latest Missile Defense initiatives more successful? Can such an
application of science be successful? Is a militarized space
inevitable, necessary or impossible?

End of Secret Plan Outlines the Unthinkable - http://www.latimes.com/news/opinion/la-op-arkinmar10.story
" In recent months, when Bush administration
officials talked about the implications of Sept. 11 for long-term
military policy, they have often focused on "homeland defense" and
the need for an anti-missile shield. In truth, what has evolved
since last year's terror attacks is an integrated, significantly
expanded planning doctrine for nuclear wars. _ _

"It surelly does not compliment the schools thet he attended;)"
President Bush received an MBA from Harvard.
Vice President Gore received an undergraduate degree from Harvard
in Journalism. After spending a short tour in Viet Nam, as an Army
journalist, Vice President Gore succeeded in flunking out of Law
School and Divinity school.
What's your point?

All the information and course notes re the Harvard MBA are said
to be freely available on the net --- the Harvard factor is the
human networking part ... where only the 'rich' may wander !
Bush did his MBA way back in time ... much of what he learnt in
the Sixties has been superceded ... any evidence he's done catch-up

If the world is looked at in terms of American Nuke policy the
areas targeted are closely connected.
If the world is
looked at in curtural ways, then, people with the 'dot' languages
would be known to have migrated to the USA ... leaving family
mAzzA - didn't your buddy Bush migrate into the USA from Germany?
So the world is made up of language.
The language is spoken
Language is culture.
People from all countries
migrate to all other countries.
The world is
The USA nuke policy assumes
The world is not interconnected. So whoever
thought up this January Nuke Policy is a dickwit!
That to pollute and
nuclear waste people and areas has no consequence.
an action would have no repecussions of a physical, psychological,
legal or commercial nature - other things apart.
Whooooops ~ Wasn't you was it mAzzA?

You choose to sling mud. Why aren't you man enough to own up to
it? I didn't raise the issue you did.
I'm amazed at your total lack of intellectual honesty. My flabber

I see that you have the same penchant for name calling as the
other lightweights who waste bandwidth here. Do you practice or does
this low life behavior come naturally?

Mazza, it seems to me that your pattern is almost always to
degrade the dialog - and to defocus anything that might be coherent.
There's plenty of much higher class stuff from others.
And plenty of stuff much more coherent than "mere belief" on the
feasibilty of missile defense.

Almarst tries to be honest - and he accepts points even
when they go against them -- you seldom do more than distract.
You also have a knack, when issues of mass murder are being
discussed, to ignore such "small things" and get indignant about

Two more off topic diversionary posts mAzzA -- if only 'The

Nuclear Arms for Deterrence or Fighting? By MICHAEL R.
"The reaction overseas to the policy shift was
predictably harsh, with a Russian legislator asking if Americans
"have somewhat lost touch with the reality in which they live."
One may question both their sanity and their human decency. I
hope many do.
