Well, your opinion was the only one I really wanted, so old-style it is.
As far as appealing to the younger crowd.. . . Let me tell you a true story about me that I've never told on ATS, or the internet for that matter.
But you have to promise not to let anybody know about it, and especially don't tell the younger members. Ok? Good.
I'm getting to be older, and I spent some time in my younger days playing with tanks for the Army. It's not very surprising that my hearing is a
bit iffy. I was tested fairly extensively and given results that showed, while one ear was a little better than the other, they both had lost a lot
of ability to hear high-pitched sounds. The doctor told me that I had to especially be careful in some settings because it would be harder for me to
hear women and children. I thought for a moment and said "Why do you think that's a problem?"
Anyway, I'm a little disappointed that this topic isn't being more thoroughly explored. I can't shake the question, "What in the world do they
think they're doing?" Do they want
the world do believe they have nukes? Why? Do they believe that Israel won't shoot first? Why lie to
the UN? That's got to make them look bad to the world. They could just as easily say, "we're cancelling all IAEA and NPT treaties, and we refuse
to talk about nuclear weapons any more."
I'm still desperately trying to come up with some reason for their behavior that isn't "The top levels of government are insane."
