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?

Note: Which ever side he joins he will be a 'terrorist' ...

Italy renaged - because they said they had
not been consulted (by UK USA) re people in the church.

Every time an Arab country has attacked Israel they've gotten
their clock cleaned.
Isn't interesting that, in the case of Egypt, a peace initiative
was pursued, a treaty signed, and peace has prevailed for almost 20
years. The extremist Arab reponse was to kill Sadat. Do you see the
I would love to see "General" Arafat conduct a traditional, by
the rules of war, exercise against the Israelis. He'd be squealing
like the pig that he is within 72 hours.
But hey, lchic and manjumicha2001 have the right idea. kill the
innocents. Don't let anyone misinterpret the slime we are/can be.
Say lchic, why are you burning synagogues. Isn't that dangerous.
Wouldn't it be more appropriate for you to attack maternity wards?
Heck, you can kill more Jews per square meter if you go after
pregnant women and babies. Your kinda warfare. Kill the weak and
helpless. Yep, MINNEA PLO IS!
Have a nice day baby killers.

That's right, Lou
Since we are all baby-killers, except a self-righteous bigot such
as yourself, I don't have to presume moral superiority when speaking
to Ichic (although I do disagree with his/her softy angles most of
the time). But you.....do stink to high heavens (everyone can smell
it except yourself, such olfactory disruption being the primary side
effects of being a self-righteous bigot) and I just love to burst
your bubbles as much as I can. So tell me, you fake-warrier, how
many baby-killers did you cheer on this morning besides us?

oops, let me rephrase the question...how many "traditional, by
the rules of war, exercise" did you cheer on this morning? Now I
happen to believe in the usefulness of warfare so don;t be shy about
it (I wouldn;t condemn the war-cheering like Ichic does)

Because arab babies don;t count as babies in your sick mind, they
are just mere ghosts screaming in your dreams to be chased away by a
good shot of whisky. So enjoy your kosher baby killings (and
occasionally, moms too as a bonus).

IDF special, that is !

"So tell me, you fake-warrier, how many baby-killers did you
cheer on this morning besides us?"
Big time Freudian Slip HUH?
All Babies count. You choose to put words in my mouth which in
all likelyhood actually displays your prejudices. Isn't that the
human way? When you can get past the mine yours muck which colors
all human relations and learn to compromise then maybe negotiated
rapproachment can be obtained. It worked with Egypt.
It's time for the Arab League to straigten up this mess, stop
teaching hate and find accomodation.

You wouldn't know Freud if he slapped you in the face. So please
refrain from using a big word like Freudian slip for Freud's sake.
So please explain, Mr. Warrier, when is the killing of babies
kosher in your proper war-by the-book? How about when IDF shoots
missiles at a house or a bilding that it "knows" houses womem and
children and that it "thinks" might also harbor so-called terrorists
(or as more objective observers call, armed men fighting IDF
invasion of their hood) and it blows up everything in it, is that a
baby killing? or kosher baby-killing that can be excused by the
likes of you?
Please enlighten me, Mr. Mazza
PS: To prevent your diversion, let me state that I think any arab
goons blowing up jewish babies are just that, baby-killers (whether
kosher or not in their books). So don;t pull "how about arabs this
and that" kind of "bovine-excretion" tricks....
