Im a college student. What more do you want me to say? I blame it on the peer pressure
When one does research you normally read things and when you engage in discussion with ignorant vain people sometimes such source material can give them a moments pause before they indulge in more character attacks...
I am sure there are at least a few people who actually appreciate the fact that they investigate my claims as thoroughly as they may be interested to.
But subjecting these ppl to your views by literally forcing them to believe it or else they be called ignorant is appreciated by these ppl? If anything that makes you very hypocritical.
I am most certainly not here to 'prove' 'others' ( you , i presume) wrong as much as i am here to introduce some new material into the discussion. If you think i am here to prove you, and not your current beliefs, inaccurate you need to grow up as i would not care about your opinions if you did not attempt to post them as facts. This is not about you or me but about establishing based on the best information we have available to us.
By twisting the facts to form your opinion as if it is fact and nothing but! Nice one buddy.
I only expect those who want to engage in discussion to familiarize themselves with the source material. If the discussion does not interest you don't bother but if it does and you want to defend a certain point of view you simply must understand some of the material in question.
And thats fine. But dont force your views upon other ppl who dont agree with them by calling them ignorant. Its very childish. Just thought Id throw that out there for future reference.
Thanks for the advice....
Its only good advice if you take it.
Why do you insist on making this vapid propaganda announcement? If you believe that to be true say that is your opinion but do not come here and tell us 'how it is' while laughing at anyone who attempts disagreement by employing factual material disputing your 'perceptions'.
So the US being lone top dog for the past ohh 15 years is propaganda? Get real.
I don't think the US have caught up and if they have it does not seem that they have been able to employ these new technologies to ward off environmental warfair as practiced by Russia.
Lets get down to brass tacts here. Did you yourself personally work for the USSR? No! More then likely you didnt. You know what your problem is? Your problem is you are a very gullible person who believes anything he reads on the net. So with the same logic applied, the US must have a secret fleet of intergalatic space ships then.
"Q: Let me ask you specifically about last week's scare here in Washington, and what we might have learned from how prepared we are to deal with that (inaudible), at B'nai Brith.
A: Well, it points out the nature of the threat. It turned out to be a false threat under the circumstances. But as we've learned in the intelligence community, we had something called -- and we have James Woolsey here to perhaps even address this question about phantom moles. The mere fear that there is a mole within an agency can set off a chain reaction and a hunt for that particular mole which can paralyze the agency for weeks and months and years even, in a search. The same thing is true about just the false scare of a threat of using some kind of a chemical weapon or a biological one. There are some reports, for example, that some countries have been trying to construct something like an Ebola Virus, and that would be a very dangerous phenomenon, to say the least. Alvin Toeffler has written about this in terms of some scientists in their laboratories trying to devise certain types of pathogens that would be ethnic specific so that they could just eliminate certain ethnic groups and races; and others are designing some sort of engineering, some sort of insects that can destroy specific crops. Others are engaging even in an eco- type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves."
So there are plenty of ingenious minds out there that are at work finding ways in which they can wreak terror upon other nations. It's real, and that's the reason why we have to intensify our efforts, and that's why this is so important.
Did I already mention that the US has a fleet of intergalatic space ships with weather control devices???? And thats a joke for some of you ppl who dont have a sense a humor.
That is a smart thing to do so why do you believe them when they keep pronouncing to western audiences that the USSR fell and that they are now a third world state posing no threat to anyone? Do you often seem them acting the the militaristic US ways?
But it did fall. It spent itself into a collapse. The threat of the USSR is long gone.
And if you believe this you are as misinformed , or plain ignorant, as one can be about these issues.
I don't forgive ignorance when it's chosen over the reality that even a little bit of research would expose.
Right before the collapse of the USSR, the ruskies lied about their current economic state saying that it was on par, or about to surpass the americans when in reality everything was going crummy in the russian economy. This, the year before it collapsed. Face it, russia was full of mass deception. Now this doesnt mean russia wasnt powerful in its own right, because it clearly was. But russia wasnt as powerful as they tryed to make it seem they were.
One example out of many was stories about the USSR haveing a new long-range bomber powered by atomic engines called the "bounder". America, in response to this news, was actually developing a nuclear powered long range bomber itself. But later back in 1958, it was later found out to be filled with Soviet mis- and dis-information the US discovered the russians had no such bomber that was in the works with those capabilities. It was just soviet propaganda. Which became the USSRs best weapon against america. Deception. Thats what the USSR was all about, smoke and mirrors.
