Strange how the Jews and Hindus use that same word, but totally different meanings..Just gives me more to re-search..:}
Wonder if this was a reagan offshoot from when he declared Star Wars after the aliens melted with a beam a 20 megaton warhead and it's silo at Minott
This was in 1983, and it freaked him out...and him and Gorbachev made the same type speeches..see link..
Your link doesn't work. I don't suppose you'd be willing to post excerpts from said link? I'd really like to know when we mounted 20 megaton
warheads on Minuteman missiles. I'd also like some more information on this 'melted silo', particularly since the gentleman who was best man at my
wedding was stationed at Minot AFB during 1983. Not only did he not mention it, but I can't seem to find any other mention of such an incident.
As for why Shiva Star 'suddenly' dropped off the map, from what I can find (which is, by no means, exhaustive), the program ran into a variation on
the problem that plagues Tokamak style fusion research. Plasma doesn't like to be contained, and tends to eddy and disperse in the most ridiculous
ways when you try...the packets that Shiva Star was supposed to fire kept breaking up. The machine itself isn't gone, and isn't even particularly
hidden...it's being used to test fusion reactions now.
