This is coming from the member which made ATS history by getting the most consecutive warnings.....

How were you going to "articulate" yourself again?





And is there any reason why your choosing to post with your second account Rogue1?

The Soviet Union and the US inspected each others arsenals to insure that each other were decommissioning nuclear and strategic assets as part of nuclear disarmament.


But those SALT treaties where compromises from each party involving a much more important issue than interceptor missiles which may or may not be getting upgraded. I'm fairly sure that the Soviets decommissioned a few missiles and later hide them in underground complexes, although I never went to confirm the story


The free skies agreement could easily be used to determine accurately the number of interceptors stays at the agreed levels.


The Open Sky treaties aren't particularly useful if those times are hidden underground or in silos skin the model and the number of missiles can be hidden from the cameras. Spy satellites which be more useful but I believe its more of a good will gesture between the America and Russia since both sides could easily use other methods.

There is a need to give a few days notice which gives each side to shuffle or hide there equipment which defeats the whole purpose of having these free flights

I'm not sure those east European countries such as Poland have ratified the treaty which only permits limited numbers of flights per year

EDIT: Poland did ratify it

You are under the false guidance of a controlled media. The particle beam cannon was successfully tested by Russia in 1972. It is a simple design providing there is a nuclear generator of the particle source. Now the "Y" beam is another matter completely, that is a ways off. I know people on the original program it can be done but would take about 6 to 8 years of non interrupted funding. Of course politicians can not control particle beams as they can lasers (sell off defeating information) so the particle beam became "very complicated" and oh the recordable fall out is unacceptable no, my no, like a thermo nuclear device blowing over head would be better?
The THEL was successfully tested by Israel in taking down various missiles and was to be tested on artillery next before the funding was halted.
I have worked on our nuclear defense program and MAD is just plain STUPID. Russia has 500 megaton warheads that could affect the wobble of our planet. NO matter where they go off (they are pointed at China now). Global warming hell it could be Global ignition.
MAD is like saying a bee will not sting you unless you upset it. Of course it is up to what the bee considers upsetting. With new members coming onboard the nuclear brotherhood this concept grows feebler as each day passes.
I will stand with Nikoli Tesla and push for a "machine" such as THEL to end all large scale wars.
I encourage everyone to look at the THEL program and call their congressman to push for funding. It would save an awful lot of American troops.
PS been in war zones the Patriots can't hit S*@t.

Ahh...now I understand. Your position is so morally correct and so intellectually impregnable that anyone who dares disagree with your position is either a brainwashed robot, or a paid 'disinfo' agent? The picture becomes much clearer now.


Nope, and that’s precisely why I pointed this out;


But the six scientists, whose backgrounds include elite American universities, research labs and high levels of government, said in interviews that Russia's concerns were justified


The disagreement would not be with ME, but with the sources listed ABOVE!

That is why I made my statements!


My position? Sitting in my comfortable chair with a glass of tea on a coaster beside my mouse. That's my usual position when discussing anything on the internet. If you want my opinion on colonial expansion and / or slavery, start a thread on the subject.


I too like tea. I get my shipped mail order, I can’t drink the usual mass processed swill.

“Diplomacy with out arms is like music with out instruments.” Diplomacy of colonialism requires an entire orchestra of arms, and anti-missile defense is the brass section. If you’d prefer sticking to less figurative analogies, I’ll be more then happy to abide.


I was under the impression that this particular thread was about the impact of the U.S. deploying an anti-missile defense system in western Europe. Did I miss something, or are you just building straw men in honor of the upcoming Hallow'een holiday?


It is about the impact ON Europe, and American taxpayer. Straw men? My wife does most of the decorations, and she likes more gothic then country.


It's 'bear', as in carry...not 'bare' as in naked. If you're going to rant at me, make an attempt to do it right. In the spirit of your 'colonialism and slavery' snipe above, I feel obligated to ask if you are a sexist pig, since you seem to think only the words of a "GUY" would have any credibility. I happen to be at least enlightened enough to think that women can speak to technical or political subjects.


It’s along shot but why not, I like to think things though, it tends to work - “bare credibility”;


Elisabeth Eaves was born and raised in Vancouver. She has a master's degree in international affairs from Columbia University and has worked as a journalist for Reuters.



Bare : The Naked Truth About Stripping (Live Girls)
by Elisabeth Eaves


www.enotalone.com...

Did I mention that I’m a tea drinker as well? Coffee is a good stimulator for activities, but tea is really good for reading, I find…

I am a sexist pig? I just asked my wife that, and she said “sometimes”. Hey, at least I never cheated on her, we got together “sometime” in the 20th century, and I sure as hell deserve a little leeway when I discuss feminism, its origins, its “mission”, who paid for the movement and what the effects are.

Here’s an example;



The term "feminist stripper" may be ironic, but it's "not an oxymoron," journalist Eaves explains, as she looks back on her own experiences working naked.


I’m just funny that way.

Here’s the cherry on top;

“Stiffed: The Betrayal of the American Man (Paperback)”

Personally, I have a hard copy.

Just a heads up, the racial card would not make a play on me either – Gil Scott Heron.

Keep trying though.



Care to point out a time when the U.S. protested the deployment of Soviet anti-aircraft missiles (as opposed to IRBMs) in Cuba? I'm wondering if you remember the Cuban Missile Crisis. It wasn't touched off by SAM sites.


It was touched off by offensive American posturing, simple as that. Anti-missile system in Russian back yard is also offensive posturing, just as US admitted creation, funding and support of so called “orange revolutions”.

Remember when Condoleezza Rice openly stated that Pentagon has an entire office dedicated to overthrow of Putin and his cabinet? That was a good one.


You might ask the people of Czechoslovakia, Poland, and Hungary about those 'war mongering Ruskies'. Oh, I forgot, only the U.S. invades countries and kills people.





Primarily because the graph you're demanding would be a waste of free time that I really don't have.


That’s a shame, because it already exists, even in wiki.


For one thing, the 'action-reaction' cycle that you so badly want to see isn't clear cut thanks to little items like the need for research and development.


Sorry, it is as clear cut as it gets and has been for a LONG time, its called “generational development.” Did you mention a long term paper?


GenDev concept description is easily gogled, but for a more in depth glance, this is a good read;

Arms Diffusion: The Spread of Military Innovation in the International System (Issues in Globalization) (Hardcover)


Your rather simplistic action-reaction motivation for the arms race during the Cold War also leaves out one of the primary drivers behind the West's push for tactical and theater range weaponry...the immense Soviet conventional force in Europe.


I’m sure you’ll agree that on order to reach depth, one has to get through simplistic action-reactions, and I’m glad we’re getting there.

“immense Soviet conventional force in Europe” Reason?

Here’s my question, “to the victor go the spoils”, 1945 Yalta Conference, the Big Three, what were the spoils Stalin was there to negotiate given that Soviet forces accounted for over 80% of German losses, while taking the heaviest casualties of all allied forces combined?

Was there an economic (reconstruction) aspect involved, including the conditions of Soviet pull out from contested territories?

I hope you’ll have some free time to answer those simple questions, I’d love to discuss their relevance to the current anti-missile concept.


You've already read it. The U.S. plans to install one (1) radar, and 10-12 interceptors. It's right there in the description of the system. Plain English is hard, sometimes. Now, take a look at the budget authorizations, and you'll see that there's funding for exactly one (1) radar, and 10-12 interceptor missiles.


That issue was covered in the articles we’re discussing, and you are simply repeating the position of Mr. Baker Spring, an NCA at the Heritage Foundation, it being a conservative think tank.

Shall we stop here or go into what kind of work such think tanks actually do?

“So we already learned on the mistakes of our past, and there is a law somewhere that guarantees that American people will not be threatened by retaliatory actions from another nation?”


Not sure where this came from, but 'probably not', and 'no, but I really wish there was', to answer your questions in order.


Personally I don’t particularly enjoy discussing disappearing principals of law, so I’ll just summaries;

casus belli verses habeas corpus, or how provocation and justification of illegal war jeopardizes individual freedom.


Technical capability for missile defense has existed in demonstrable form since June 3, 1960, when a Hercules scored a contact kill vs a Corporal rocket over White Sands.


SALT treaty rings a bell? Actually, my very ATS name has a coincidental association with the topic, particularly OKA. Look into that one.


Your 'example' has little, if anything, to do with missile defense (which makes it fit in with a depressing amount of your post).


I’ll fairly say that both of our examples are wrong. I make silly examples in order to get through and avoid a waste of time.


A better analogy would be "We can't give our Police officers bulletproof vests! That will just provoke an arms race on the streets! Criminals will just get bigger guns, and feel threatened by those armored officers!"


There is a clearly documented arms race chronology here as well.

High capacity semi-auto pistols kicked of the arms race and forced police department to retire revolvers in favor of semi-autos. Trust me, I’m well informed on this issue and you analogy is completely incorrect. To sum it up prior to 9/11 and Patriot act, it is the North Hollywood shootout that allowed local police departments to purchase military surplus M-16 assault rifles to be used by street officers.

In case of US anti-missile shield plans for Europe, both NATO and Russia are pointing guns at each other, but it’s NATO that’s putting on the vest. I’m not sure if you’re familiar with the concept of strategic advantage, but when one party enjoys a higher degree of protection from an equally armed opponent, it increases the first strike capability against the opponent with lesser degree of protection.


As for the rest of your post, I snipped it. I'll let the authors of the other parts speak for themselves.


All the power to you, no skin of my back.

You should really stop making up things about yourself, your credibility suffers. People here are stupid, they see straight through these fantasies as well.

I'm going to just ignore the rest of your post, as this owns all of your credibility. Nuclear fusion may be powerful, but the teller-ulam design would still need a pretty bloody heavy warhead to reach 500 megatons. What would they launch it with? 20 copied Saturn-V rockets strapped together?

Even a 100-megaton warhead (aka the largest that ACTUALY exists) takes a heavy bomber to lug around, and even that is pretty much a suicide mission; even if you successfully got undamaged by the bomb (a feat which probably only a tu-160 could pull), your fuel would likely be just about gone from traveling around with a 27-ton warhead (the weight could be reduced some due to modern equipment and useage of a more efficient fuel, probably down to like 15 tons).
I mean really, the Tsar Bomba was a political move and way higher yield than Russia would consider for something practical, and those were the days when people started miniaturizing and yield-reducing to work for the newer missile tech which was far better for delivery.

500 megatons? ROFL.

That is the point no one but Russia will ever have war heads of such a magnitude as their 500's. They also have a payload of "Red Rain" gas a bio-fungal agent.

Erm so what is your point ? Where do you get this information ? All you give us is your word, which doesn't seem to carry much weight with anyone ine here.

You talk about about 500MT warheads but give no specs, no inormation on delivery, NOTHING. Why ? beause you are making it up.

The US has already tested teh THEL on artillery rounds a few years ago. Nothing new there. I thought you were implying they were going to mount THEL type lasers on artillery.

ONce again MR I have a wild imagination show me some information, if you're so in the know LMAO.

They are called doomsday devices. Nuclear weapons big enough to destroy the earth or salted with cobalt or other extremely reactive material to kill any living thing.

Might not be true but you cant put it past the Russians to design something like that

Well according to the person who suggested they have these 500MT, they are pointed at China and there are 5 of them. He also claimed that these could affect the wobble of the planet, which is complete BS. It would need a far far larger relaese of energy to do that. He doesn't say they are salted with cobalt or any other material that could casue long term radiation. Actually he doesn't say anythng execpt Russia supposedly have 5 of them. For a person who claims to be personally aquainted with people who work on top secret projects and to have been involved somehow in America's nucear defence, he sounds remarkably childlike.

The 500MT bomb sounds vaguely familiar to a ficiton book I read a long time ago. Wouldn't surprise me if that's where his information came from.

The story is that Russians tested a 250 megaton device. It made the cover of NY times. Radiation was said to circle the earth three times.

Here’s the thing, doomsday retaliation MEGA bombs don’t need to be TAKEN anywhere.

You see, the very POINT of a doomsday bomb is to destroy ENTIRE earth. It takes 500 megaton bomb to thrown earth out of its orbit.

Are we seeing the point that such a bomb will not have to be transported anywhere, since it destroys the GLOBE?

How’s that for a public relations “difficulty”.

That was kind of the Soviet version of MAD, the one that literary assures that EVERYBODY goes tittts up if things go sour.

Is it all a myth, hearsay, science fiction? I sure as hell tell that to my self every chance I get, because ignorance is truly bliss…

The Cobalt warhead is at K reactor in the US. If you can’t read have someone read my postings to you. As for proof if I had enough proof I would have several public “servants” behind bars where they belong. In particular Ted Kennedy.
Know that the one you are addressing served with Richard Wilson a special agent of Dick Thornburg. We could arrest FBI. Look up the MOVE in Philly, and then look up wind shear in New Orleans and Illinois. Then all those planes cut in half on run ways. Oh that all stopped after the MOVE burned out.
I also spared with Don the Dragon Wilson why don't you have your big brother tell you who that is. That is why I was pulled into protecting children from abductors (If you have read my posts you know what I am saying, do you think I would make up such horror?)
Look THEL was not tested by the US on artillery. The funding was stopped and just as critical components of the C-130 have gone to Israel so has testing of the THEL!
I've been in Iraq and I know how bad our leaders are doing their job. I also know what need to be done to keep the public safe. I’ve been doing it for over thirty years.
We should be on the same side if you could take the truth. By the way only two of the five where maintained and they are pointed at China. You want proof you will have it when the Red Rain is release from India over Pakistan.
I know most of the US nuclear warheads are at most 20 megaton multiples. And yes even the two 500’s with bio fungal agent Red Rain will only destroy most of China. It will also rise over all temperature by about 30 to 40 degrees but Moscow and a couple of little spots in the US would survive. It is not a global doomsday. Gees settle down will you? I’m an old man facing a really dangerous surgery and am trying to get the things I really do know out, just in case.
My point is a THEL type defense with orbital defense intercepting satellites would be best over the US. Particularly over the northern east area in particular y-12 at Oakridge. Much better to do this than surrounding Russia with non-effective missile interceptors that will never work. Bush and company sucks big time.

The Russian Doomsday Device is referred to as the Dead/Death Hand. It works nothing like this.

Furthermore, as Earth has been hit by asteroids before, which produce far more power than a mere 'nuclear weapon' and managed to survive, something tells me '500 MT' would do nothing. It's subtle, but something tells me.

i. Why would they keep a warhead at a reactor? There are far more secure areas, without any civilian involvement.
ii. Yes, we're sure you have an extensive background with the federal government, especially given your typing skills. Something which is generally mandatory to be at-least satisfactory in most government desk or field jobs.
iii. Is it me, or does he speak like some bad anime character? This user reminds me of the kid on the Vassago thread who claims a demon had a 'Naruto' symbol on his forhead.
iv. I like how you give us back story into how 'big' a person you are.
Little do you know you're talking to the DIRECTOR OF AREA 51.
See? It doesn't work. And I still managed to spell better than you.
v. Not only was THEL tested on artillery, but satellites.

en.wikipedia.org...
www.spacewar.com...
www.missilethreat.com...
www.israeli-weapons.com...
www.fas.org...
www.robins.ball.com...
findarticles.com...
vi. You tend to know someone is full of themselves, and telling a fictitious story when there's several sentences in the row of, literally, 'I did this, I did that.'
vii. Most nuclear warheads range from the tens of kilotons, to hundreds..
At-least give us the respect to look at any reference sites before posting something to obvious.
viii. Are you telling me there are two 500MT warheads with biological weapons? You realize those are mutually exclusive right? Even if it did work, I'm pretty sure a 500MT warhead would annihilate any living organism.
ix. Not only do nuclear warheads have biological components, but those biological components can raise global temperature and kill nearly everyone!
Why?
Who knows.
Not as though the U.S. would, in any capability, survive with no one else left.
x. This is a good example of what I had roleplayers.
