American Space Shuttle Lost - 02/01/03 04:09 PM

SPACE CENTER, Houston, Feb. 1 — The space shuttle Columbia exploded over central Texas on Saturday soon after reentering the atmosphere en route to a landing at Kennedy Space Center in Florida, NBC Dallas affiliate KXAS reported. Video images obtained by the station showed the doomed shuttle descending at a severe trajectory and breaking apart as it plummeted to Earth. Officials in Texas dispatched search and rescue teams to the town of Palestine, southwest of Waco, the presumed point of impact. NASA, not yet confirming a disaster, announced it would hold a news conference at 11:30 ET.

MSNBC is showing video footage which shows the space shuttle breaking into peices and streaking across the sky...

So where are the motherfuckers that hate america so vehemently?

Come on out, tell us how we deserve it and you're happy those people are dead.

I hear to much anti-American sentiment on this board, but when things like this happen, none of you seem to want to hate America.

[censored] cowards.

I hate the system. I don't hate all americans or all government employees. Like the scientists, the astronauts. Just because someone that dies and they live in America, doesn't mean I have to hate them.

Plus I probably wouldn't like any of these people, but it sucks when smart people die b/c they actually contributed, especially if astronauts.

Plus, check your facts. One was Isreali and there was another foreign-born person.

And I do hope that alot of troops die in IRAQ, I also hope they attack ppl over here. And I do hope 9-11 looks like a [censored] picnic as Uday said.

Sorry, but when the US resolves to deal with NKorea (openly developed nukes, tested nukes, broke UN sanctions, and warned any country to give them aid) w/0 violence and with cooperation of other countries, you have to wonder what makes IRAQ (we gave them chem weapons, so we know they have them, no evidence they destroyed them), then there has to be ulterior motives.

So yes, I hope we get our [censored] rocked here. I hope we get our [censored] rocked there. Why? BECAUSE IT IS UNJUST OF US.

Is that what you wanted?

If it was me, it would be about image. We tell iraq to do this or that, and they refuse. The U.N. tells iraq to do this or that and they refuse. So that puts the world in a very funny position. Do we just keep on pestering them and look like pussies? We've been doing that for years. That should be encouraging for any other rebellious countries.

The other difference is that if we DON'T clean up iraq, then we risk more terroristical attacks. For instance we don't do anything until they actually use a chemical weapon - so that we have proof. Then we're stuck with another afghanistan where we have dead on our collective consciousnes, and need to find some proof as to who did it. We're not as concerned that NKorea is gonna launch terroristical attacks. Maybe declare war and throw around some nuclear warheads... that wouldn't be cool. But at least they're a solid nation that we are able to deal with. Iraq is less so.

In my speech, I'm not saying that I condone anything. But what I do see, is understand why things happen the way they do. At least I try anyway.

I never hear anti-American sentiment on this board, what I often hear is people disliking the American Govenment, you can love your country and hate your govenment too...

Although some people may not agree with what the govenment does, when a tragedy like this occurs, they put their dissentious feelings aside and show some charector and support/mourn with their fellow Americans...

[censored] cowards.

I love America. I really do, and yes I [censored] all the time about it. When you give up 4 years of your life to defend it you can tell me to shut up. When you spend Xmas in a [censored] snow bank, or thanksgiving in Nicaragua on some mission you can tell me I have no right to [censored] about the government I have served.

When you get up at 06:00 every morning and salute a flag as it is raised up the pole, rain or shine. You will then have the right to tell me not to [censored]. The moment you are willing to loose your life to protect someone elese right to [censored], you can call me a coward. Until that day,

(Scallion I like you, I really do but it is this freedom that makes America great. Tell people they do not have it and it truly dose suck and all hope is lost. It is that bitching that has caused some of our greatest changes and inspired freedom to prevail over opression.)

You shut the [censored] up if you are trying to silence anyone. I was knee deep in Korean mud when some of you were nut stains. I hate to see a soldier used a political tool. It is bound to happen. As far as the astronauts. I don't care. billions more dollars to start polluting new areas. Space station No one I knows will ever see. Mars, yea right.

They were smart, Yea, I am sure they were. But if this was 6 collage professors in a private jet you would not still be hearing about it. Ohhhh lots of government people moving. NEWS NEWS NEWS 

And they do not care about the people. It is coming down to money, How much money just blew up. How can we not lose that much money again.

If the lived how would your life have improved?
None! Ignorant you say? How many space missions have helped anyone on earth? How much money has gone into it?

I mean you guys don't think the concept of flying cars will ever work, and you get all happy about the space program. What do you ever think will come out of it? As far a war... There needs to be one. A big one. I hate to think about it but the world is over populated. Some people need to not re-produce.

Our as in humans, process of elimination is war. That and sexual harassment suits. Bio war, nuclear war, chemical war. all will help lift the world burden. How many places can you go where there are no people?

Some need to die, unless you are looking to space for a safe haven off of earth. lol

Some people need to die? I say we cut $45bil in aid to africa. Give em quarter of a century and we will have an empty continent to spread out too.

Maybe it is natures way of stopping the overpopulation. If United States just butts out and focuses on itself, nature will take its course.

Re: American Space Shuttle Lost - 02/04/03 07:59 AM

True. Currently there are more people on the planet than it can naturally maintain. But now we can create food in factories and turn salt water in to fresh water and so on. I know it sounds sick or cruel, but many people need to die. It is like deer. If they are not hunted or do not have a natural predator they over populate till they exhaust their resources and they all starve.

We on the other hand will pollute the water, land, and air. Eat all the food and animals, kill each other. All this is because we are the top of the food chain. Heh, we are still animals.

I never understood helping other countries when we need the help more...

To better take care of other countries we must first start out at #1, everyone sais this, but they end up helping the little guys...

If we helped ourselves first, we'd be able to do much more good in other countries...

So I ask you this, why bother with their homeless when we have our own?

Re: American Space Shuttle Lost - 02/04/03 09:47 PM

because we as rich american slobs are soposed to feal guilty and many feed off of this soposed guilt to make money for themselves, and think there being good poeple in doing so. ever see one of those save the children in africa comercials? then you should know what i mean.

i disagree with the over population statments. technology suports over population. bigger building can cram more people in less space. better farming methods and/or genetic manipulated foods can feed more people with less space. medicine is slowly curing the world of disease. the quality of life for people and the planet will decrease though. people will continue to have to live in less and less space, with more polution. more species will die, more trees will die. more space will be taken up, the earth might get warmer, the coasts might get smaller. but population around the earth will still rise

I never said a thing about over population, i simply pointed out that we worry about other countries while telling our own to [censored] off...
