    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

"Wouldn't you "defame" Hitler - whose Name and Number were in the Munich Telephone Directory" " says Bluestar

Bluestar Hiltler was out of it before ' I '


I don't think of that guy as a credit to Austria .. and yet that one man didn't act alone .. did he now?

So what's your point Blue-y ?

You seem to be saying that Showalter and Hitler are comparable ?

That Showalter is Hitler?

Doesn't Showalter advocate a shift away from the Nazi Psycho techniques of repressing the people?

Aren't the ideas of, for example:

    moving towards world peace; shuffling engineers away from products and processes that are used to destroy mankind towards products that actual benefit all
... aren't these ideas and thoughts slightly different from those of Hitler?

Showalter advocates peace and progress through changes in mindsets and re=allocation of resources towards styles of thinking and production/products/services that Americans can be proud and happy to deliver.

The question I'm interested in is 'WHY' the thought processes, ideas, innventions, innovations and processes discussed by Showalter are 'shot down' by the current bunch of posters on this thread?

Why are these posters HERE?

Why are others, let's call them readers, by-standers rather than participants?


I speak with Showalter on a daily basis and this is the fourth year.

I've triangulated and mentally mapped the information and facts he speaks of .... and believe his story to be true. I've researched and discussed with him these matters in depth and at length - and not found his story in any way wanting.


How does the story go ...

Showalter, an outstanding achiever, was super-selected and placed on the Cornell Program (set up by Eisenhower to hot-house a national intellectual elite), finding the challenges interesting he follows through with the aims of the program. He's supertutored by American-expert-NAMES in specific zones that will give him insight and familiarity with methodolgies and tools to later assist him in solving the problems handed on to him by Eisenhower.

The need to solve specific problems was to advance America - as against other nations.

Showalter is partnered by the late Emeritus Professor 'Steve Kline' who 'BELIEVES in the work' Showalter is undertaking.

Showalter is encouraged to establish a further company that looks for the stand-out optimal solution ... Showalter is not allowed to say who he is, who's backing him (CIA boss William Casey), Casey pulls the deal re Government money and tells Showalter to solve the longstanding maths problem ... pulled and pushed in a stressor situation working to extremes Government and/versus investors ... his health suffers - once, twice and three times ....

Showalter has to let the company go ... investors local to him don't understand what's been happening and why ... Showalter can't say. Showalter sowly powers back to health, takes and passes the Professional Engineers exam.

Casey tells Showalter to 'come in' with worked solutions via various channels ...

He undertakes studies at Madison --- one of the channels Casey advocates ---- the last resort being the New York Times.

Showalter follows through with the life-work entrusted to him.

BUT ..... the doors that should open .... are reluctant to open.

Which raises the question - WHY isn't the 'support' there to enable Showalter to fulfil the tasks entrusted to him ?


A further thought is ... How many significant others are there in this type of situation ... have worked for government yet 'when push comes to shove' are denied proper acknowledgement?

Are bullets or MINDS

    shooting down helicopters in Iraq?
If MINDS how can Iraqi-mindsets be brought on board?
