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?

mAzzA the preceeding post was about LEADERSHIP - where is it? Try
tuning into radio - that's where the 'real truth' is being
broadcast. The EU is looking at Israel's trashing of the
Infrastructure the EU has just paid for and installed -- that's
water, sewage, power .... all deliberately trashed by tanks ..
there's even a new super bulldozer tank that smashes down whole
streets with one blow!
People will boil over with anger, with the information flow that
can't be censored by Israel, perculates through!
... that people wanting medical attention can't get inside the
hospital gates without waiting for 4hours until Israeli troups give
... that the hospitals have no power or water!
... that there's unjustified and senseless civillian carnage!
mAzzA - why don't you take a sojourn
into this zone, this little cosy home-from-home - and get real!
Security measures are being co-ordinated by the Community
Security Trust, a charity set up to protect British Jews and train
them in defensive techniques. A spokeswoman for the trust said
she was concerned that attacks on Jews in Europe could "spill over
on to the streets of Britain".
"In view of current events in the Middle East and incidents in
France and Belgium in the last week, the Jewish community has been
asked to increase its level of awareness of security issues," she

Powell should not travel so slowly to the scene of a fire.
makes him look like an arsonist.
The New York Times often confuses its mandate with that of the
State Department. And who can blame them considering that The
State Department often confuses its mandate with placating the
Yiddish supremacist press.
... The United States has sanctioned this Israeli aggression
as clearly as the Reagan administration sanctioned Sharon's
invasion of Lebanon in 1982. The record of the invasion of Lebanon
is already a twenty year old 'chapter' in the history books. For
this chapter, all we have to do is turn to the fresh ink of the
last two weeks. This is a rare repeat act in history. In 1982,
Alexander Haig gave sanction to Israeli aggression against the
people of Lebanon. Twenty years later, the Bush administration is
fully implicated in Sharon's new mission to 'defeat the
Palestinian people.' What a farce it is that Sharon is holding the
Bush administration hostage

I abhor illogical behavior. I guess too much Spock!
I didn't like it when, in 1968, a Palestinian Terrorist decided
to "effect" the American Presidential Race. So now Sirhan rots in
jail and the question remain, "What might the world be like had
Robert Kennedy lived?" We'll never know.

!! he did live !!
An 'old money' son a puppet of his father's dream
Had he 'lived longer' he may have ........
Yet he didn't live .. and the muddle of his death ... suggests he
may have been eliminated by The Shadow - that same 'The Shadow'
that's stalked so many Presidents -- who ought to know to sign off
their powers back to 'the people' and let Congress Function
sufficiently to SEE 'The Shadow' and hunt it down!

Ther was/is no excuse for solving problems in that fashion.
Were/are RFK's orphans any less human? Does the amount of money a
person has mitigate the sorrow of their passing?
The Queen Mum was laid to rest today and from the sounds of it
you disapprove of the adulation and respect shown to her. I guess
all good Marxist Leninists abhor the rich and famous and you're no
different. Say, wasn't Marx English? Might he have aspired to...Oh

mAzza Is this from the MD thread ... ? She wasn't nuked out of
existance ... she perished!
Have you got copies of her correspondence with JFK .. their
discourse on NUKES, Cuba, and imperial rebukes?
Back in Sixty-One,two,three ... I bet she had him out to tea!
Had he lived ... and gone to lunch at Clarence ... as an older
wiser guy ... there would undoubtedly have been discussion on how to
do the world some GOOD!
In some ways CLINTON might be compared to JFK - both Lawyers
avec la chimie - people oriented!
So how to do the world some good - over the widest population; at
the lowest cost; provision of the basics of survival. The basics are
WATER SEWAGE POWER/ENERGY HEALTH&SAFETY(noNukes).

Not big on Jewish history but - On Marx the last i heard he
resided at 'Highgate' March 14, 1883 onwards ...
The jew Karl Heinrich Marx was born on May 5, 1818, in the
city of Trier in the Rhine Province of Prussia (now Germany). His
mother, Herietta Pressburg, was from Holland and like Karl's
father, was Jewish and was the descendentof a long line of
On today's timeline he'd be regarded as a quaint conservative :)
