U.S. Scores Missile Defense Success - 10-15-2002 |
Re: Missile Defense = Maginot Line

We could probably use a missile defense now that Bush has p+ssed off just about every nation in the world. Problem is the thing will never work and makes the strategy of any enemy the same as Bush's - first strike - all-out with everything they can throw at the US. Now how many enemies is Bush making for the US in the world with his NWO of America first and only? The "axis of evil" is growing bigger in his mind all the time, and all the Muslims don't like the US much either. Now he's begging Russia and China to help us convince NKorea to dismantle its WMD. I'd be surprised if they didn't laugh in the faces of his representatives he sends to try and get them to get tough with NKorea. Is the US going to back down on Iraq now that NKorea has nuclear missiles pointed at our troops? Or do we go ahead with war on Iraq, Iran, Arabia, NKorea, and China? Better get ready for being drafted to fight the whole world American boys and girls.

Re: The Biggest Threat To Peace
"In the multitude of people is the king's honour: but in the want of people is the destruction of the prince." - Proverbs 14:28
It's not too hard to conquer, but to occupy you need the consensus of the people. But, maybe you think that the Orwellian "War is Peace" slogan is correct.

Re: N Korea on Satellite Pay-for-view
Bush gave the whole world his ultimatum that they should submit to US hegemony or face war and calls the UN irrelevant. He cut off the agreements made by the Clinton administration with N. Korea and forced them into further poverty and starvation. He wants to make examples of Iraq, Iran, and N. Korea. And, the "hit list" is much longer, including China and Russia as well as many other smaller nations. Full-fledged world war seems to be right around the corner, and nothing would surprise me now - not even the sinking of the entire US fleet. The following war is brought to you by America's military/industrial complex, oil companies and corporate interests....

About Challenger and Columbia:
Strange and weird, but still true.
Truth is stranger than fiction.
I'll probably be ridiculed for this, but so what?
I was on the Challenger too, in spirit, when it met its demise. I was asleep that morning and had a dream. I was the astronaut at the throttle of Challenger. We were all eager and ready, but had not gotten a go signal. We were glad when we got a somewhat hesitant go. I was in the second row of seats and on the right of Judith Resnick; that would be the fourth seat counting from the top left to the bottom right. I was flying by the seat of my pants, knowing what the G-forces felt like that we needed to get into orbit and the thrill of lift-off. I moved the throttle steadily forward. It seemed I was pushing ahead a little too fast, but the G's felt right. But it felt to me that the fuel wasn't burning in a clean, efficient manner as I pushed the throttle even further forward. By the time mission control finished saying "throttle up," it was already there. Judith pushed the abort button. As I watched her, I started to say "No!" But, we all realized then that it was already too late and that she had done what was right. Those of us in command had realized and the rest of the crew understood that it was a fuel leak, and the astronaut in the seat in front of me confirmed it with the reading on his gauge. As we flew onwards toward the ocean through the fiery flames, in my dream we all stood and bravely looking out through the windows greeted our fate. As a wave of the heat from the flames overwhelmed the cabin, they all fainted. I felt it go through me, while I being spirit was not affected. And after all, it was just a dream. But maybe if it weren't for the impact, they possibly could have survived.
I woke up hearing my great aunt screaming "O my God, no!" I got up and walked to the family room where she was watching TV, and she said that the shuttle had exploded. I said, "I know." She said, "What?" I said "I heard it on the TV after you yelled," which I had, but I didn't say anything about the dream. This is a true story.
I was asleep too when Columbia was destroyed. But, I didn't dream about it. I have always prayerfully wished them well as I watch them lift off into space, but this time I did not - largely due to bad feelings from here at Space.com forums. This time I had a bad premonition myself as I watched Columbia head for orbit. And, that's another reason why I avoided posting in the STS thread. I still think it is a spiritual world in which we live.
The fact is we've lost some true heroes. And, NASA needs to get their act together.

"Humanity Caught Up in the Matrix of Lies"
Humanity caught up in the lies and deception, a paradox.
I've gotten a little drunk and maybe I've said enough already, maybe a little too much.
But, if the Muslims say kill every Christian, it would seem the Christians might ought to say kill every Muslim.
And, if the U.S. makes preemptory strikes, so shouldn't others also make preemptive strikes?
And, who cares who or what is right?
Love is forgotten and mankind destroys itself - no big loss - and maybe even a sense of justice.
Think about it.
And right now, I'd be extra vigilant if I lived in New York City.

Maybe that was his plan also - to start the last world war, muslims against infidels, drawing the US into a fight on all fronts. Or maybe, it was the CIA's idea also and they compliment each other's strategy.

Re: Coalition of the Willing [re:
... I think the UN was a good idea for diplomacy and democracy in world affairs. In that, I disagree with Bush and the Republicans who don't care and don't want to be limited by what other people on the planet think. The UN was shown up as a farce because the US thinks it has the power and can do whatever it wants without them. It's a farce because this administration chose to make it so. And, what of all the other alliances and treaties? It's the US military might that this administration is counting on - the biggest budget and the most advanced weapons. Mostly, the rich depend on their money and the privileges it brings.

Well, I don't see how this war of Bush's can be anything but a big bloody mess, taking in all who enter it. The Sunnis hate the Shias, and the Kurds hate the Turks. It was Saddam who kept those factions from each others' throats by terror and punishment. And if the Muslims sects don't unite to fight the Americans and the British and Israel, they would be killing each other if they had the chance. The same goes here too. Everyone wants to unite to overcome a common threat, or they would just go on killing each other anyway. Osama bin Laden gave this administration that gift of an undeniable threat and Bush transferred that to Saddam. Violence is the way of the world, or seems to be, until the end. It's a "dog eat dog world." "And you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction," is some of the lyrics of a song which is a little old now but even more closely tied to the truth.

The parallels between Hitler and Bush are so great, I don't know why everyone thinks they must ignore them and follow like sheep. Both were deluded and dreamed beyond their reach. But of the two, Hitler had the better plan, though both would undoubtedly come to share the same fate.

All the war planners left all the peace planners in the dust. IMHO. I guess the planners of these wars figured that it had to be, sometime, inescapably, in any case. Everyone knows that mankind doesn't seem to be able to find a way to live together in peace. And, the US had to try to take the lead early and try to keep an upper hand. And as they lumber forward, across those ancient and foreign desert sands that are the birthplace of most of modern western civilization and culture and "empire" and of the Biblical patriarch Abraham, they are exposed as both a hunter and a prey in the eyes of their enemies also.
Now, there's just too many people on the planet anyway because they won't stop abusing and destroying the earth and every creature. The demand for oil increases daily, and the limited reserves are quickly running out.

From the viewpoint of my own mind, it was in the national interests of our country to try to find peace with our neighbors on this planet, and not to wage war for oil. Also, that we should try to find peaceful solutions to world problems through organizations representing the nations such as the UN. But, there is another agenda or way also and that includes war as the main influence on politics and the doctrine that might equals right. And the option was yours, people of the USA. Who am I to say you're wrong? Sounds like things are coming along fairly nicely so far, according to the plans made before Bush was even appointed president. Can it all be a coincidence, these events of the last few years? I doubt it. It appears to me to have been orchestrated, though I still don't think their plan will work. It's overall acceptance seems guaranteed in this nation for some reason, probably the gullibility of the herd. The plan was world domination as stated by this administration.

re: Floridians still not 'over it' by Amy Oakes
Senator Bob Graham was the one person who had the key opportunity to stop the illegal electoral votes of Florida from putting George W. Bush into the presidential office, if he had only objected along with Representative Corrine Brown to the unprincipled actions of the Supreme Court and the Republican party. He did not object to the loss of Floridians' right to vote and have their votes counted at the time that counted the most, when he should have had both that opportunity and the motive to act. Now that we have reaped the whirlwind, what credibility does he retain? He may also now complain about the Homeland Security Act, but wasn't he one of its authors? And, if he knows, being a member of Congress and of the Intelligence committee about the irregularities of the conditions surrounding the 9/11 attacks, why is he so soft-spoken about it? Bob Graham has lost my respect, my confidence, and my vote.
Posted by: James Patrick Holmes at August 11, 2003 11:19 PM
I must take issue here, because we were fighting for all we were worth to have our votes counted. The takeover was engineered by a finely oiled machine, involving a level of detail in the network of Bush operatives that we will probably never fully uncover.
It will take the efforts of many, many people to stop this steep descent. Governor Jeb Bush has the power to restore the many thousands of Floridians to the voting rolls who were illegally included on a list of felons created with the foreknowledge of Katherine Harris, our former Secretary of State. As of last November's election, it hadn't happened. What about it, Jeb?
Senator Graham co-authored a portion of the USA Patriot Act. His sections dealt with foreign intelligence and not the language that weakens our civil rights. John Ashcroft is your man there.
Regarding what he is privy to about 9-11, much of it is classified information. He is not allowed to divulge it publicly. He has said that he doesn't particularly want to take a detour to the federal penitentiary during his campaign.
Sure hope you will change your mind, James, as Senator Graham is as honorable as they come.

Which is worse, to be a traitor to a corrupt political machine, or to be a traitor to the American people?
Posted by: James Patrick Holmes at August 12, 2003 12:55 AM
Your point taken, James, but keep in mind that Senator Graham can do much more for us outside of prison. Senator Graham respects the rule of law, for which it is now painfully obvious the Bush administration has nothing but contempt.
This whole coverup surrounding 9-11 is starting to leak out around the edges, so we all need to sit tight and maintain patience here. There are too many incensed people who are not taking this lying down.

I feel like I'm a passenger on a big rig whose driver is drunk, reckless, dangerous, and out of control. I'm saying stop this truck and let me off, and most everyone else is telling me to shut up and let the man drive. They're all happy with the situation and think it's party-time. But it's not just the person at the wheel who's to blame, but the majority of this nation who have been hornswaggled by big business interests. When are they going to shake off their stupor, or when will I awake from this nightmare trip? Maybe the cosmic traffic cops will come and arrest the driver, take away his truck, and handcuff his drunken friends before a big wreck happens once again. Few other riders seem to care, it seems.

If you can still open this page, if it still works, I would like to say that I think that this may be about the end of my involvement with the internet. What a waste of time, effort, and money it's been so far! And, I also think that all hell may be about to break loose on earth very soon.

"Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man."
- Jesus from Luke 21:36 KJV
" ... all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? ... And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. ... And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast ... And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is
Six hundred threescore and six. ...
And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name...."
