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?

Showalter - pleased to hear 'The Poster' say he's
nominating you for the Nobel!?

would make you jump 20foot into the air - forget f=ma ... as
did the Ffffff

On UN Resolutions.
It is quite obvious to the rest of the World outside the US
that those resolutions are not quite impartial and honest.
Giving the extream pressure applied by US using its financial
and military mights. It controls the OIL supply for Europe and
Japan. It controls IMF and WB funds. And it openly stated that
unless accepted, the US will act along leaving the rest of the
nations out of the loop. It used to be called the BLACKMAIL.
Now it is called the UNANIMOUS DECISION.
And I don't even raise the fact that the Security Consule
represents a tiny minority of the World's population. Not to
mention the Permanent Members of. This is as far from so
charished DEMOCRACY as one can imagine.
On "No Fligh Zones" to be used as a reason for war.
Those where never explicitly approved by UN. And, in fact,
are going stright against the Charter and International Law.
But, being a self-appointed SHERIF, JUDGE and EXECUTER and
having the greatest GUN in a village, why to care about LAW?
In my hamble view, it will be a very hard for US to
convince most of the World that its real intentions are well
being of the ME region and its population rather then Control
the World OIL supply including the only major independent
provider for the Europe which Iraq used to be.

"Quae cum ita sunt" Caesar's Gallic
Loonie chick. Can't you read? I might nominate Robert for
the Darwin award. I did not say or imply that I would nominate
him for anything in that post. Isn't it amazing. You and
Robert are just like those losers in the cave allegory. You
see what you want to see in the shadows on the wall. Your
reality is as fleeting and etherial as those shadows. Getta

Earth vs <^> <^>
Soooooo......the Demon is IN The Details?!?!?
Well, you're right about THAT!!!
Look, Rshow...this is why I keep pressing you on the
subject. Yes, I know most peoples' eyes glaze over when it
comes to electronics, and that, therefore, it isn't necessary
to buttress an argument with impressive but ultimately
meaningless equations (given a selected audience).
The point is that Understanding leads to Conviction and The
Will to crush ALL obstacles in the Path to Success!!! Nikola
Tesla's Vision blazed a Trail a century ago which WE still
follow. The timid may quibble and quail from his
"idiosyncracies" to their detriment. "Others", in the
meantime(over a period of many decades) have picked up His
Baton (rudely and pragmatically knocked from his fingers by JP
Morgan) and are on the verge of delivering a Shield. I can't
say very much about HAARP and its promise here, but suffice it
to say that (as I feebly understand it) RF standing waves can
create "plaques" in the "upper" atmosphere of dense "regions"
of charged particles such that incoming warheads will, in
effect, run into a brick wall.
Treat the previous with derision if you will...I don't
care...there's nothing I've said which may incriminate
me......it's "in the record".
Shut up, Lunarchick, and screw J. Edgar He's dead and you
