    Missile Defense

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?

"It has crafted a society that gives a large role to the state, which built one of the world's best public health systems and an enviable transport infrastructure, and preserved a rich cultural heritage. France has given its people time not just to work, but to enjoy the fruits of their labor"

PUTIN - Grow the Economy

Growth coming off a low base.

8% pa growth required.

Russians are looking for strong improvements.

Putin has 70% rating from Ru population.

Russia has the advantage of being able to straightaway implement innovative management strategies - seen to work - and necessary to a modern economy. Human capital - appropriately implemented - can maximise growth.

Sharon was happy to bulldozed down all the executive buildings in Palestine - including the HQ for UNIONS ... making Unions world-wide join as a botherhood to ask the question WHY and next impose a blockade and sanctions on Israel .... this is going to cost the US more and more dollars!

Children have readily available all the free food they require. The only possible truth to your statement that 10% of our children are hungry is if they are the fat brood who constantly pronounce their hungry. Please donít deceive regarding our nationís children to further an unrelated agenda you may enjoy, it detracts from their true problems on which we must concentrate.

Jenin camp 'horrific beyond belief'

Terje Roed-Larsen, who toured the West Bank refugee camp on Thursday, said it was "morally repugnant" that Israel had not allowed rescue teams in after the fighting.

It is totally destroyed, it looks like an earthquake has hit it," he said.

Aid agencies now have access to Jenin

"I am watching two brothers pull their father from the ruins, the stench of death is horrible. We are seeing a 12-year-old boy being dug out, totally burned," he said.

"We have expert people here who have been in war zones and earthquakes and they say they have never seen anything like it," he added.

Mr Roed-Larsen, who is the UN's Special Co-ordinator

Wearing boots paid from USA tax payer donations, no doubt :-

    Andira Harab told how her brother had been made to strip to the waist and how other young men were stripped naked before they were bound and made to lie on the road, where Israeli soldiers tormented them by stepping on sensitive parts of their bodies before they were taken away.
