The Bleeding Obvious: We do not need the Son of Star Wars
Date: Sunday, June 27 2004
People of the planet, we need to stop all governments that are not listening to reason. What's the catch? Why are governments going along with this? The U.S. has lost all credibility leaving it well, powerless, (as shown by the security council rejecting it's request for sanctioned torture), is so in debt it's ready to collapse, could be taken over by Cuba it's so vulnerable and yet some government leaders are still kissing below the belt. What is going on?

On September 11, 2001, 19 men armed only with box cutters and white-hot hate managed to fell the World Trade Center towers in New York and change the world. But now there's a new danger abroad, you see. A danger so old it's new again. Intercontinental ballistic missiles.
We all thought that with the end of the Cold War that was as much ancient history as Ronald Reagan's Star Wars program to knock ICBMs out of the skies but, if you can believe it, it's on again.
Not only is the Bush Administration pushing a son of Star Wars program, but we Australians believe in it so much, we're going to sign up for it. True!
