  1. NB for those of us here, for whom English might not be a first language and might find it a little difficult to understand the commentary, the following video is shot in Bruxelles the capital of Belgium not in an Arab country. http://tw.youtube.com/watch?v=-inob20I_Y0 Best and Warm Regards Adrian Wainer
  2. Is there a reference on the internet to this jailing of Von Braun? http://www.dw-world.de/dw/article/0,2144,2976091,00.html Best and Warm Regards Adrian Wainer
  3. Hi Roco, Well their position, would not have been very different to most of Europe but then after letting a failed Austrian postcard painter lead them in to a World War on a plan based on a Wagnerian Opera, one might have thought they would have learned something, like how to recognize a bunch of Nazis though they might be called Al-Qaeda this time round rather than the NSDAP. I knew the French were insane, like the Soviet Union post Stalin was no model state but even it had its limits and refused to sell Saddam a nuclear facility, because they would have sold a regular nuclear power plant but the Iraqi specification was for an atomic bomb factory, which the Soviet Union refused to supply Iraq but which the French happily sold him. And as I am sure you are aware one does not need a fancy aircraft or rocket to deliver a nuclear weapon to the target, just pack it under the guise of legitimate cargo in a forty foot container and ship to the target of your choice e.g. a lockup warehouse in London England. http://www.tellthechildrenthetruth.com/ Best and Warm Regards Adrian Wainer
  4. Hi Roco, there were a lot of people living in Germany and it would seem most everybody was against Hitler, so I wonder where this man got his support. The reality is, that when Germany was winning the War the majority of Germans thought Hitler was the greatest thing since sliced bread and quite simply did not care that he was intent on exterminating whole populations. It was only when the War went seriously wrong for Germany, that people started to have less regard for Hitler and by then given the prospect of defeat by the Soviets, with their well deserved reputation for terror and murder and what the Germans had got up to in Russia and for which the Russians would be likely to extract revenge, it was pretty much a case of sticking with the Hitler they knew, than inviting in the Russian bear they didn't. As for Von Braun, well you say that he claimed he was up before a firing squad for his anti-Nazi beliefs, and you say it is in his autobiography, I don't doubt that you are telling the truth, but whether he was telling the truth is an entirely different matter. For start, he would know exactly how things worked at a very high level in Germany or he would never have got the prestigious engineering position that he did, and he would know exactly that a lot of things were done on a understanding that such a thing should be done without any paperwork or official orders being issued, which would fit very well, if somebody wanted to make up a cock and bull story after the War, about being before a firing squad for his anti-Nazi beliefs. Furthermore, there was nothing special about the Nazi scientists, why they were ahead in rocketry was the US government did not fund American rocket engineers and scientists in the 1930s and the Nazis funded their rocket engineers and scientists. The USSR, which was a far less wealthy and technologically advanced country than the US, once they had got hold of the information from the German rocket research projects and used the knowledge they obtained from their captured Nazi scientists, they were able to carry on themselves [ unlike America ] without help from Nazis. As for Germany itself, the reaction of Germany in the aftermath of 9/11 really showed up that when push comes to shove, not a lot had changed. Best and Warm Regards Adrian Wainer
  5. I have 3.6 Mbps HDSPA wireless, I don't know what type of satellite service you are getting but if HSDPA is available in your area it could be an option, if that service was available in your area and you were interested in it, you should check it out very thoroughly before committing yourself to a contract as in Britain and Ireland where this service is available people have had very varied experiences with it, in that for a start 3,600 Kbps is not a speed that consumers will actually experience since the service is contested and the more people who are using a wireless base station the more the available bandwidth has to be shared out between them. But if this service is available in your area and you would have a service provider that would not overload his network, it can be very attractive e.g. the software is pretty much plug and play and the modem fits in any computer USB socket and e.g. one can use the modem with one's laptop during the day when one is out and about and plug the modem in to one's desktop when one gets home. The modem is about the size of packet of Wrigley's chewing gum. Best and Warm Regards Adrian Wainer
  6. Good point, Well when the film comes out they might have an explaination for that issue. I only found out about this film project a short time ago but one thing which is really nice is that they are apparently going to some effort to keeps things as realistic as possible, like there was a big discussion on their forum page about how the motorcycle in the clip could be powered since a normal petrol engine would be defeated by the moon's lack of an atmosphere and they came up with the idea of a hydrogen peroxide fueled motor.

  7. Hi Tommy, yes it's a film alright and it looks better so far than some of rubbish Tinsel town has foisted on SF and WW2 cinema goers in recent years. http://blog.starwreck.com/2008/06/30/iron-sky-signal-episode-1/ and this is part one of a fifteen part Japanese documentary about UFOs sorry no translation but the animations are pretty cool. http://br.youtube.com/watch?v=PD2S3J401lI Best and Warm Regards Adrian Wainer
  8. Is that an orbiting communication satellite downlink with a telephone connection upload link you have? http://www.satsig.net/satellite-internet/satellite-internet-canada.htm Best and Warm Regards Adrian Wainer
  9. Well at least, it works when you can get a decent wireless link, I was just listening to a technology Journalist with the British magazine PC PRO saying how it took him couple of hours to send an email from a phone/electronic portable device that was using a Microsoft based system, and that he only found out at the end what he needed to do by accident.

  10. Frankly, I am glad that somebody is taking the the Technology companies to task for over selling their products, I have a HSDPA internet modem and Three the service provider refer to a 3.6 Mbps speed, yet I get a full strength signal and most of the time it operates at around 800 Kbps which is way off 3600 Kbps and when there are a lot of people using the service it can drop down to unuseability. And don't even get me started about SLI and Crossfire. http://www.three.com/ Three Hutchinson Whampoa It's an Internet Cultural Revolution. Best and Warm Regards Adrian Wainer

  12. Like I don't have a problem with abortion, not that I am gung ho for it, but realistically what you are saying is that one should be able to kill a baby at full term, I can't see that makes sense it that e.g. I would hardly think you would be for allowing cat and dog owners to pour petrol over their pets and set them on fire, and it just does not make sense to me that a baby is nothing till it comes out of the Womb.

  13. Hi didn't realize you were a Mod, would have PMed you instead if I had, the status logos are a bit hard to read so I hope that explains why I did not pick up on you being a Mod. fixed your quote, ket me know if thats not right.
  14. I am only pretty new here, and I am sure Tommy can speak for himself.............but I rather suspect he was being ironic..........and I am genuinely sorry if you were upset. Hi didn't realize you were a Mod, would have PMed you instead I had, the status logos are a bit hard to read so I hope that explains why I did not pick up on you being a Mod.

  15. Hi Tommie. I thought China [ well apart from Mao's outfit who were only a bunch of Communist bandits ] were on our side during World War 2? And it is useful to remember that if it was wasn't for the Chinese bogging the Japanese forces down in China all those troops would have been available to fight against the US in the pacific Islands and elsewhere, on the other hand I know you weren't being 100 per cent serious so no offence taken and none given on my part I hope, just thought I should put down a marker that there is a lot more to China than its rather nasty Government. Really Enjoying the forum lots of Good old fashioned fun Best and Warm Regards Adrian Wainer
  16. Yep the whole affirmative action idea is bonkers, there can be a place for such a thing when people have been oppressed for years and they need a help but to keep the thing going for a decades is just nuts, in that it must lead to situations like where are e.g. a poor white kid whose parents are druggies or something like that, is working 3 jobs to put himself through college and getting no help from the Government and a black guy whose parents are lawyers or doctors and who have promised him a Porsche for his 18th Birthday is also getting preferential treatment as an oppressed minority by the College authorities, Best and Warm Regards Adrian Wainer

  20. Thanks folks for your replies much appreciated. Best and Warm Regards Adrian Wainer
  21. Hi after a while one's posts seem to go in to a mode that so they can't be edited, am I right about this and if so what causes them to do this, is it a timer from when the post is first posted or based on the number of edits one has done or some combination of those two or something else entirely I have not thought of? Best and Warm Regards Adrian Wainer
  22. Wow would I be right in thinking that Mr Manning does not like Barak Obama very much? Whilst I could agree with much of what Mr Manning is saying l think it might overstating the case somewhat to compare Mr Obama to Adolf Hitler, not because I would think Mr Obama is such a nice person but to get around to doing the things that Hitler did one would have to have very particular skills none of which he has displayed to me so far, from what I have seen of him which I eadily confess is not a lot. In respect of the Oprah Winfrey show anybody who would criticize it would certainly attract a sympathetic hearing from me, in fact somebody proposing a strike with a thermonuclear weapon, provided it was done in a constitutional and legal manner and could guarantee the elimination of the Oprah Winfrey show would attract a sympathetic hearing from me. One issue on which I would strong disagree with Mr Manning is his use of the term Liberal, frankly many of people who call themselves Liberals are quite simply nothing of the sort, they are crypto-Fascists or crypto-Nazis or crypto-Communists or suchlike such as e.g. Islamist Arab racial supremacists who assume a posture of supposedly advocating liberal values for the simple reason it is neither politically expedient, rewarding, fashionable nor respectable to be going around openly voicing one's allegiance to Adolph Hitler or Uncle Joe Stalin political ideology or openly saying that all people who are non Muslims and who would not submit to Islam either by conversion to Islam or accepting Dhimmi status should be exterminated and that all non Arab Muslims are racially inferior to Arab Muslims.
