    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.

I've been working on this thread since September 25, 2000 rshow55 4/21/02 3:11pm where I had an all-day meeting on the web with an authoritative figure.

A recounting of what this Missile Defense thread has done since then is set out in Psychwarfare, Casablanca - - and terror from #151 on. Links before March 1, 2002 are no longer on the web, but are available on CD. Discussion of this thread continues from #265

PSYCHWARFARE, CASABLANCA. . . AND TERROR , which tells a key story about the Cold War, keyed to the move Casablanca , has interested many people.

Especially the core story part, from posting 13 to posting 26 .

If you want a sense of how good this thread is -- sample lchic's work ! - (search lchic ) - - . You'll find a wealth of thoughtful, wide-ranging citations. I think she's the most valuable mind I've ever encountered. Search lchic on other NYT threads and on the Guardian Talk threads, too. You'll be impressed. Lchic and I are partners on this thread - and she is much the better half.

I think we're both proud of the accomplishments described and put in context in MD1999 rshow55 5/4/02 10:39am

That work involved great contributions from "stand-ins" who have taken the role of senior Russian and American officials - - a role that has continued since March 1, 2000 207

The fact is, I think progress is being made, and the world, ugly as it is - is getting safer. Maybe I'm misjudging that - - but it keeps me working. From where things are, if some leaders asked to get some facts straight - a lot of things might get much better.

Your bothersome blather is not"working on this thread"? It works on everyone's patience who see you for what you really are, a self centered egotist. Your opinions regarding other participants are just that. lchic, is a fellow traveler. why are we not surprised at mutual back scratching. Isn't that what chimps do?
