    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?

Change is a continual process. The redneck-backlash in France relates to people believing in the myth of a past Utopia ... rather than looking to the challenge of integrating and bedding into their community those new peoples - they need - to assist the progress of their economy.

Renewal and change are continuous:

VISION - the long term planning of a Nation or Organisational Entity (subject to change with changing environments) Usually secret planning (competitive advantages aren't if competitor knows too much - dependant on circumstances)

Lunarchic.

Your suggestions look correct. But not too many examples of success can be shown.

BTW. Sorry for the new identity. It's not my own choice;)

2020 - is VISIONary .. looking to the future with eyes focused; looking to 2020 over these coming decades - with the implicit promise that you are moving fowards/onwards/upwards via excellent strategic planning.

The idea was to put 'models' up .. the success relates to context via implementation almarst2020 4/23/02 10:41pm

    What Day Is It?
    By THOMAS L. FRIEDMAN
Isn't it April 24, 2002?

But do we all understand the meaning of 'when' http://www.nytimes.com/2002/04/24/opinion/24FRIE.html

    ""Someone should tell the European fools who now rush to protect Mr. Arafat that when this intifada started it was directed partly at his corrupt leadership, but he redirected it all onto Israel ""
Isn't when actually june67 ?

Does Friedman understand the meaning of 'when' !

FISK

    The first body was hanging upside down, one grey left foot tied to the electricity pylon with wire, his right leg hanging at an obscene angle, his head lolling below what remained of a black shirt.
    This was Moussa Arjoub of Doura village. The second body was infinitely more terrible, a butcher's carcass; again, hanging by a left leg, but this time his almost naked torso was riven with stab marks and holes ...

You can always find more context -- in an endless regress. Questions of "what matters?" are important -- but to use them, the question "and how much do the things involved matter?" has to be answered, too. Language alone can't judge weights, because language, standing alone, isn't quantitative. A time comes where there has to be judgement.
