    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?

Now, I can ask myself - from where I am right now - looking forward to a time where my best try at accomodation has failed

Sure you CAN analyze all that. You don't need NYT or "average readers of NYT" for all this.

Should I try to sue the NYT ? Setting aside the question of whether or not I have the means - should I try to do so ?

You've to determine that, without forum posters' help.

I think both Eisenhowers would have said yes . I also think that Scottie Reston and C.L. Sulzberger would say yes . I'm doing my damndest to come to a reasonable accomodation.

May be, IF you depend on such approvals.

If I have to fight - then I have to.

As you have been doing already...

If that happens - I hope a lot of people notice - because it will say a lot about how much sophistication and honor the US has lost since the 1950's - ugly as things often were then.

What a threat !

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.

Cantabb , for the record ( repetition often counts ) will you deny that you work for The New York Times - or an organization closely connecte to The New York Times ?

Yes I said let it go to the 14th.

But no, you said shut it down now, we're done.

The best stuff is yet to come. Watch how the creativity and sure laughability crescendos into a hilarious big balloon of hilarity.

See you at the picnic.

Even fascists are invited. And any kindof flag(past or present) waver is also invited.

We do ask that you leave your ridiculous flag waving at home, however. American flags are ofcourse always welcome. Just don't wave them on picnic night. We might have some international guests.

On January 17, 1961, President Dwight D. Eisenhower have his FAREWELL ADRESS

The things Eisenhower warned about have happened - and we need to fix them.

Sometimes, questions of logic do matter


Attack on the Ad Man

After the Ad Man muddles things long enough - it makes sense to clean things up.

The New York Times should support that effort.

Of course if it's pure forum-psychosis you're after, then visit the 'human origins and anthropology' forum.

That place is hilarious too.

In a different way, but nonetheless, still hilarious.
