    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?

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.

Wow - 150 + postings since I posted this:

The New York Times on the Web Science Forum

by distinguished anonymous posters and M. Robert Showalter

"I'm off to mill around with, and get ignored by, large numbers of people. The National Conference on Media Reform has 1400 attendants - some who are pretty angry at the mainstream press. If the matter comes up, I'll talk about the towering good faith the mainstream press often show, as well - and the need to preserve the necessary relationships that are in place.

"Probably nobody will be interested. And I have no status whatsoever - and no institutional connections.

"But it'll be fun to go and listen.

- - - - -

It has been fun to go and listen. As just one of a crowd, of course. But it has been pleasant to do a lot of talking with a lot of able, interesting people. My wife and I have invited one guy to dinner after the conference - his plane doesn't leave till Monday.

The keynote session of the National Conference on Media Reform last night was was really wonderful - great speeches by FCC Commisioner Johnathan Adelstein ( who played a mean harmonica at the concert with Billy Bragg later ) - by Senator Russ Feingold , Amy Goodman , Rep Maurice Hinchley, , Rep Louise Slaughter , John Nichols , Studs Terkel , Bill Moyers and Al Franken .

There's a session by the head of PBS in not much more than an hour - have to catch up later.

I think the NYT should have covered the conference.

Looks like you've reduced yourself to a mass of frothing-at-the-mouth incoherence. Not a good vision of a "World Asset" !

The lengths some people go to, to dodge questions they hasve been demaning of others: lchic's employers and their interest in her continued presence here ?

Us (lchic & rshow) against the world -- world divided into NYT employees/"hacks" and CIA operatives ????

Nilihistic-cantabbulations ... no one reads ... you're dead in the water man!

EXCEPT you, rshow55 and remaining few [one of the regulars has also thought fit to Un-"Ignore" me -- a 'timely' gesture]. Did you know that you & rshow55 have also been responding to me and my comments -- or were you too busy spewing nonsense !

lchic - 06:17am Nov 9, 2003 EST (# 16984 of 16987)

? did i omit the prefix 'PETTY'

Talking about "PETTY," may I refer you back to your own posts -- good examples.

lchic - 06:26am Nov 9, 2003 EST (# 16985 of 16987)


Highly 'original' posting: Link to an NYT article ! WOW !

lchic - 06:30am Nov 9, 2003 EST (# 16986 of 16987)

USA have failed to qualify for the Olympics in one of their-culturally-top sports ....

MD connection ...

"How can a country that can't throw and catch a ball run an MD system?"

As I said several time before (you may not remember it in your frenzied responses to them), to you and rshow, everything is and can be made to have relevance to MD, or your idea of it.

You just prove my point here.

rshow55 - 07:47am Nov 9, 2003 EST (# 16987 of 16987)

NOT even a report on the Media conference you attended.

Now that you have made the CDs, I look forward to seeing them ALL over the stores around the world (with able assistance from "World Asset").

As to my name 'written on the subway walls', I've not seen yet. rshow and lchic slipping ? Don't disappoint me !

The idiot lchic, with her hundreds of SPAM posts, and her mentally-ill partner, only have an audience for their collective insanity for...five days or so-that's it for these utter a..holes....what'll the lunatics and morons do next..?? No audience for the insane Showalter in just five days...count 'em good Showalter....this is IT for more World Asset"; no more anything...that is, unless the lunatics are already making plans to infest (like a disease) another innocent Forum.....

klsanford0 - 11:17am Nov 9, 2003 EST (# 16990 of 17017)

We've been trying to tell the insane lunatics to "SHUT UP" for luck of course...but Thank God for the NYT, who is doing our work for us, and getting rid of Showalter and his idiot friend....wonder what he'll do all day w/no audience, no Forum, he obviously has to have one..
