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?

lchic's link machine is resting while your's seem now on.
More of the same re-hash.
. . . ultimately the many tribes that
inhabit this earth are going to have to figure out a way to
forge some workable agreements on how we treat one another.
No revelation !
Some patterns cantabb and bluestar are
showing stand in the way of that - and many, many "tribes"
need to get clearer about that.
Forget the "tribes" -- See if YOU can get clear about
what's posted here, including some by me !
... some points long made on this thread
bear repeating. There are plenty of jobs that are
impossible. We need to find things that work.
NOT really. Your endlessly circular "Loop Test" not needed.
You can't move an inch forward, and you have NOT.
If you think you & lchic "can do a better job of
finding truth," you have NOT done that yet. Even after
over-16,000 posts, plus thousands before.
Rather, a pertinent question is: "Can you and lchic
continue to abuse the forum posting privileges?" YES !
Apparently, without any restriuctions or reprisals -- but
NOT without accusations against the provider of this
opportunity: NYT !

You poor, pathetic little fool, Showalter....if you'd just
stop your generalized babbling, and mention SPECIFICALLY what
your "work" is and why and EXACTLY WHAT FOR you're contacting
the NYT, etc.....Cantabb and I would leave you alone....

ultimately TRUTH outs : TRUTH has

'Selling is what politicians always do, but never before
has an administration been blessed with such willing
buyers,' he added in a recent column for the Palestine
Today, over the ruins of this 'fourth estate', its main
landlords - the CNN, Fox TV and the BBC - are all accusing
one another of the destruction of its credibility.
In late April, addressing a London media conference,
BBC's director general Greg Dyke criticised the American
media for its 'gung-ho patriotism' and slammed the coverage
of the Iraq war in the US media for being unquestioningly
patriotic and lacking in impartiality. He singled out the
Rupert Murdoch-owned Fox TV channel and Clear Channel
Communications Inc, the owner of over 1,200 radio stations
in the US, for special criticism. 'We are still surprised
when we see Fox News with such a committed political
position,' he observed.
Throughout the war, Fox TV's coverage carried the
on-screen headline 'Operation Iraqi Freedom', the same name
given for the campaign by the Pentagon. Clear Channel radio
stations in Atlanta, Cleveland, San Antonio, Cincinnati and
a number of other cities around the US have organised
pro-war rallies attended by up to 20,000 people.
While this did not violate any of the US broadcasting
laws, former Federal Communications Commission (FCC) member
Glen Robinson described this action as 'borderline
manufacturing of news'. http://www.reportage.uts.edu.au/stories/2003/media/fourthestate.html

For some reason, an old Glen Campbell song comes to mind:
"By the time I get to Phoenix, she'll be rising...."
By the time he gets too tired, she'll will be rising ...
(Sorry for this lame attempt at levity; sorry I don't like
country-western or Campbell either)
