    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?

The central fallacy of the pro-war celebrants is the equation between "American values" as understood at home and the exercise of United States economic and especially military power abroad. -

What about Hollywood making a film called Operation Cyclone, telling how the CIA trained Islamic terrorists and starring Bruce Willis as Bush? -

Jenin massacre "It's just like Hiroshima," US reporter said

Glad my comment went in your eye, circled your brain, and
exited via your type-y type-y fingers ...
of course we are all merely HUMAN !

Raises the point then, why does the USA give the wink and the nod to Sharon .... rather than have taken Humaine Action to prevent the latest Holocust ... will Spielburg be finding the cash so the folks of Jenin can record their family links and say ... how the military dozers pushed over houses their folks still inside, how the 80 year old man was told to be out of his house .. and on exiting an Israeli army worker put a bullet into each of the old man's legs ... how people are alive and crying within the dozed heaps .... how Jenin smells of rotting corpses ... and how some of the Israeli military spoke in American voice!

Interesting how NY yelped in September .. and now when it should have empathetic concers, is as cold as a frozen fish on a slab .... and how the NY times hasn't run a leader header related to the truth of the matter in the ME.

The USA tries to con the world into believing that it is Academically an advanced nation ... the basis of the University System is TRUTH --- there's no truth coming out of the USA currently wrt ME ....

Truth is the USA dollar is
F A L L I N G !

Chomsky -

"And I learned in 1999 that the claim that US was bombing Serbia in response to ethnic cleansing and to return its victims to their homes was a complete fabrication." -

Jenin massacre "It's just like Hiroshima," US reporter said

Larsen picked his way through the rubble the size of two football fields

He was taken aback by the size of the devastation and the knowledge that people underneath were buried alive for days

" Decaying corpses are all over the place ......... a horrible scene

2000 people without homes
No water
No power (larsen - audio bbc)"

Growing international outrage

Israel does not care

Armoured Isreali bulldozers pushed over the houses ...

"If you told a lie enough time it becomes the truth - JG - Nazi"

... Israel propagandists are IN DENIAL (no they did not push over civillian homes etc ) .. and that extends into NY ... and right into the NYT! ... right to mAzzA -- isn't that so!

The Internationals will LOOK and REPORT and get to truth!

Jenin massacre "It's just like Hiroshima," US reporter said

    Custer and his men were killed in the worst American military disaster ever.
    Until now .... not morally working for peace equivocates with 'military disaster' ..
