    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?

Things are being demonstrated here that every professional diplomat should know. Things they don't know now.

What things are "being demonstrated" here that "every professional diplomat should know" and does NOT ? What are they? Some things nebulous ? Probably, things that they or "average NYT reader" anyone can't divine from your posts on this forum ?

I wish I could move faster - but I'm building a record - and it is a record that many at the New York Times should be glad and proud to see built.

AGAIN, your record is ONLY YOUR own record -- building or not building it YOUR business, no one else's ! The record I see being built by you here is one of claims, accomplishments, theories and conspiracies absolutely without any verifiable evidence, despite numerous reminders. And, a record of extreme confusion and redundancies !

"Can we [rshow + lchic] do a better job of finding truth?" Doubt it ! Even with the "syrup" and from your nearest "Truth Dispenser" ! That's how I see it from your & lchic's postings so far !

"concerned Eisenhower - problems of negotiating stable peace agreements. It isn't a lot harder than teaching kids how to tie their shoes - but it takes a while."

Since you know so much about Eisenhower's Nuclear Policy; please explain, EXACTLY, Eisenhower's policy of "massive retaliation" and what it meant at the time...what does "New Look" Strategy mean..? How does Eisenhower's strategy compare with "flexible response" strategy...? Answer me, Showalter...!

Can we do a better job of finding truth? YES. Click "rshow55" for some things Lchic and I have done and worked for on this thread.

Seven postings in a very few minutes - all from people who assure me that they do not work for The New York Times.

If they don't - that's interesting. If they do - that's interesting, too.

Some things need to be clarified - and if that can't be done - there can be no closure that works.

That's a basic fact about stability in all sorts of complex circumstances.

Cantabb - I'm taking my time - and since you don't work for the New York Times - and since your work is mainly to "muddy the water" - I have other interests besides answering you instantly.

Like taking my dog out, just now.

"Like taking my dog out, just now."

You absolute little COWARD, Showalter......gets asked questions, then runs off quickly, with his tail between his legs in fear and paranoia...

Well, we've WON the day so far, Cantabb....the heat's on the gruesome twosome, and they can't escape....look at them running and twisting and hiding and evading...
