You are not "anti war" if you give someone else the weapons to start a war...
You STILL increased the chance and scale of war by selling or giving away weapons..
"Anti War" would be if he cut weapons manufacturing, not increase it..

If Israel does all the bombing and fighting
in Iran, then hasn't Obama saved American
lives by keeping them out of harms' s way?
That's anti-war for American soldiers.

lol, but is it "anti war" as you suggested he is??
And I doubt whether the US would stay out of it anyway..
They are surrounding Iran with forces ATM..

in this case if that is true, I'm thinking the chinese are talking direct to the people
not the government...

I know I am just a nobody but here's
my thoughts.

if it truly was a plane, then the Elites
are after Obama's impeachment.

if it truly was a missile, then the Chinese
are sending the American Populace a message.

that would be the motive for either/or
IMHO

but as of right now, I'm still going
with the plane theory.

ATM???
bro, they have been in Afgh for 9 yrs
and Iraq for 8 yrs and they have not
bombed them yet.

Just because it looks good on paper
doesn't mean it is an easy task or
even a wanted objective.

you have been in the thick of this one for sometime so i'll defer to your opinion
The optics of it aren't my forte, I'm a sound man
The controversy is what is weird because Rence's other "EXPERT" Charles Martin Smith "Softwars.net"
said plane too, and he usually seems to know the technology, thats his expertise...

I'm not one for war talk, but its just being tactical.

Certain measures have to be taken to continue to provide safety to Western Nations against the threat of attack.

When there is a lack of funding bad things happen.

Spy agency to shut six branches

Oh and the Fighter Jets that are going to be built will I'm sure be far more advanced that what the US will sell to other countries, I dont think they are stupid ?

For every piece of weaponry that the United States sells to other countries i.e Bombs, Planes - they already have counter measures in place.

Dan, I just want you to make your own
judgments based on reliable intel.
And reliable intel is something that
is very scarce at the moment.
It seems there are 2 factions at odds
and each has an agenda. Don't take
my word for it, u do your own investigation
and make your own decision. All I'm saying
is beware of whom you get your intel from.
Military decisions made on the fly by false
intel gets a lot of people killed. We do not
want that to happen again.

I don't think it is a funding issue.
I think it is a loyalty issue.

Lots of secret agents are going private contractor routes
including the CIA. Working in the private sector, they are
not bond to a flag or the Geneva Convention and can operate
like pirates on the high seas. How do you think that Afgh
has 96,000 private contractors and only 50,000 military?
Where do you think all those private contractors came from?
Former military and former spies !!!

please provide the forum with ANY source
that shows Obama responsible for sending
contractors to either Afgh or Iraq???
These folks are sent by the companies
that employ them, not Obama.

And also, please provide any source which
shows Obama was responsible for those
private contractor/security contracts?

Getting back on Topic here, I do think that it was a missile but I still have a sneaking suspicion that it had the flag of the good old U.S of A slapped across it.

It may have been a test or maybe it was a smoke screen for something.

And I also have a suspicion that the US used a very good P.R team to kind of shift the blame China's way and let the conspiracy theorists have a fun time with it.

Then a Fighter Jet just suddenly malfunctions in Alaska out of all places (Plenty of potential witnesses there) *Sarcasm*

Now they announce two days later that they will build these new fighter jets that they have been speculating about for years which can almost defy the laws of gravity.

My alarm bells rang when this all happend in quick succession thats all im saying

No contractor goes to Iraq/Afghanistan without a Federal Contract. Obama IS making the call to send in contractors...they all work for HIM.

Presidents enjoy the luxury of putting appointees in charge of those Executive Departments, managing those Contractors.

I asked for sources to show Obama SENT them there.
These contracts that put private armies owned by
private companies like Xe were put in place by Bush
Administration. Obama is just honoring the contracts.
And by the way, Xe no longer operates in Iraq. Their
license was revoked by the Iraqi Gov in Jan of 2009
and the last Xe contractor left in Sept of 2009.

en.wikipedia.org...

And Karzai and his regime is trying to pass laws
to restrict them out of Afgh as well. Xe is a private
company that had contracts with the US Gov State Dept.
That does not mean Obama sent them there, they were
already there when Obama got into office.

I believe that it is all just a ploy to get us to be afraid so that we spend more on the military and give up freedoms all in the name of security.

I dont see what is offensive about that video, what do you find so offensive about it?

So are you changing your mind then boondock?

You set out a convincing analysis of the missile, together with flight plans and positions of the jet's supposedly responsible for the trail, but now you are saying you think it's all created propaganda to get Obama out of office?

Perhaps if this is a plot to discredit Obama, it really was a missile, but an American missile, launched from an American Sub...designed to look like the Chinese are playing dangerous games, and Obama hasn't said a word.

Possible.

But i'm curious as to why you appear to have done a complete U turn in only a few days?

LA plane theory is blown out of sky by boondock-saint.


yes he deserves at least a pat on the back.


although i must admit the first place i heard that theory from was the crazy plaedian blonde lady with the big ____'s


You mean the Plaedian woman who everyone was sceaming HOAX at because of the rubbish she was spewing??? Now if she got this right, what else has she got right??? Again if she is right, maybe those who scream HOAX at her are the ones with their eyes wide shut!!!

Maybe


yes, well..... i can only agree with you.

her information always seemed legit to me. it was her character and that big house that arouse doubt....

Yes it was a plane. My name is Tim Brummer, I am an aerospace engineer BSAE Northrop University 1978. I worked on the B-1 bomber program, and was later a rocket launch engineer at Vandenberg Air Force Base working for Martin Marietta on the Titan and Space Shuttle programs from 1981 to 1992. You can Google my name along with "Northrop University" or "Martin Marietta".

I have watched at least 100 rocket launches from Vandenberg AFB up close in person. This General has apparently never seen a rocket launch in person. It's a lot different seeing them in person as compared to a video.

At first glance the trail looks like a rocket launch, but it falls apart under scrutiny.
1. When you closely watch the video, the object creating the trail is moving very slowly, a rocket at this altitude would be going 5000 to 10,000 MPH.
2. The trail is too wide, rocket smoke trails are much narrower.
3. There is no flame shooting out of the object, rockets have a bright yellow flame at least as long as the rocket itself shooting out (it shows up as white on film).
4. After a few minutes a rocket exhaust trail zigzags all over the sky, due to high speed winds coming from different directions, this trail maintains it's shape.
5. You can HEAR a rocket launch at least 30 miles away, they have a very distinctive low cackling rumble caused by the supersonic exhaust, a Titan IV would really rattle the windows on my house 15 miles away, did anyone in the LA beach area or out on a boat HEAR it? No.

When I saw the closeup video shot, for I instantly knew it was a contrail coming off a jet aircraft because or reasons #1 thru #3 above. Further viewing confirms it's an aircraft by #4.

If nobody believes the above reasons I can post actual rocket videos.



could you provide examples of contrails forming in this manner well below 5000 feet?
