    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?

This past weekend there was a program on the Discovery Channel regarding exotic guns. The ABL laser was featured and the photonic impact was demonstrated and displayed. It'll work!

and here's what TIME MAG says about USA intelligence incompetency :

Categorially Jews are arabs .. all DNA'd to Abraham .. blah blah blah blah blah etc

They're ALL PEOPLE, and both need an economy, a job, etc ... but one mob are being subsidised to the tune of $3.6billion a year by the USA ... the others aren't. Much of those billions go on buying superKillingToys to trash Palestinians ... and it's this aspect that wrankles the EU(whatever that is), the ArabWorld (whatever that is), and all fair minded peoples (whoever they are).

What's your point mAzzA?

Putin, likened the struggle against terrorism to the Second World War

What people comment on re WWII was that at the end of it the 'agressors' were given economies.

If Terrorism has parallels to WWII then the need for assistance to economies should be considered. Additionally Islam needs a modern progressive leadership to give a positive spin, and remove redundant dogma.

Note: the FBI is said to be dropping it's regular homeland activities to fight Terrorism ... but doesn't the Terrorism eminate from 'elsewhere' ...


RS : In the seating plan, Russia is now placed alphabetically between Portugal and Spain. (article above)
