    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?

ultimately TRUTH outs : TRUTH has to be morally forcing : build on TRUTH it's a strong foundation

Despite all that growth in the third quarter, the number of jobs actually fell. Krugman


Bush has to create jobs.

Globalism sees flow of 'jobs' go to India (IT) and China (Manuf).

The 'advanced world' has to 'advance' and create new jobs.


The Red-scheme of military complex ... red as a ref. to the C20 RU ... employs folks .... but in order to maintain the raison d'ętre .... the US has to go outside it's boundary and look for fights ... 72 fights since the end of WWII.

It's interesting that the supposed military historian here hasn't noticed that employment within the military complex is RED-scheme (Communistic style) employment.

If he were a real military historian ... he'd be pointing that out.


The world is getting tired of being both bullied around and attacked by the US ...

Raises the question how will the US employ those falling out of the RED-Scheme when the world moves for peace.


A true capitalist economy has to continually move towards the production of valued/useful goods and services that fit it's evolving culture.


Had the USA vision, then it would be determining where the economy is, and where it should go.

It would look to developing the 'right new industries' and jettisoning redundant.


Bluey asked -- why was i on the board - without explain his presence.

The board is here for those with opinions - 6 billion out there!


The perceived need for MD realtes to 'mind-failures', to communication failures, to separate-ness.

As the world moves and knits together ... the need for MD will lesson.


A question 'the average reader' might ask when reviewing this board is why so much hostility towards opinions that look for an improved future for the World, for the USA, and for the NYT ....

anyone done a street survey in downtown blinggablongga wrt the NYT .... has anyone heard of it, is it effective in changing world opinions ....

It is certainly used as a standard and a reference by those reaching out to blinggablongga ... so indirectly a strong, positive and futuristic NYT is a genuine World Asset ...

Don't check the map for blinggablongga

Cantabb you're way out of line here

Sorry, but I don't quite see it your way. And I've "checked" again.

I don't have any personal gripes.

You're constantly talking about rshow's problems and gripes, which has been THE problem anmd which is what I was referring to. YOU may not bring up or discuss YOUR own problems here, but you do talk about HIS, and have repeatedly gone after those who disagree with rshow Or question his problems.

In fact, you raised the question of "hostility" on this thread (similar to rshow's remarks on "fighting"). And, in a previous post (#16034) in today's series you even refer to what rshow knows he needs, etc.

Rshow has drilled into the board's memory that he and you are a team, and you've always expanded on HIS problems. As if it needed another mention, see Rshow tag-line: "Click "rshow55" for some things Lchic and I have done and worked for on this thread."

I address my comment 'to the board' and it's subject matter.

Average NYT reader includes me.

My post stands up for itself .... get a second opinion from someone with a brain!

Regardless of what you may think about your own posts, I doubt most of them make any sense at all to any one, unless cliches and platitudes are saomething brand new, and faux-Zen has suddenly become plain and simple.

No need for a second opinion. You already have a lot of 'admirers' on the 'board' : my opinion may be a little 'kinder, gentler' !

"You already have a lot of 'admirers' on the 'board' :"

I guess you're right, eh..? Or at least they don't bother "World Asset", the cretinous one must humour her, any more than the Showalter....who is in brief retreat it seems....his idiot camp-follower has unfortunately seen the need to "take up the slack"...

"Russia’s most powerful missiles, 100MUTTH, capable of breaking through any anti-missile defense system."


Do you really believe Russia has the financial capability to both field new BM's and warheads AND have a separate and highly-costly research-and-development Agency for counter-measures..? They don't tell us their so-called "technology"; do you know what it is? And note they say they can break through "any" MD; a foolish statement in light of possible future breakthroughs...
