Just saw it myself. Loved it until the end. They should have left it the way it was in the original.

I am so lost here.

FEMA sales 10,000 trailers from LA for $6000+ each.
Turns out the trailers are contanimated.
FEMA says bring us back the trailers and we will give you your money back.
FEMA loses even more money. The government looks even worse in the eyes of everyone.

I can't see anything fishy here no matter how I twist it. Explain to me what the scary "Oh my god Bush did it!" thing is coming from?

Yep, you are the expert Unbreakable. Hell I am going to start asking you questions.

We changed the policy to include modern threats after the cold war. The mission is still peace through deterrence. You don't even know what you are posting, you just see key words to get alarmed about. None of these documents are talking about B-52s flying alerts with nukes, ICBMs all pointing at Egypt, or subs just waiting for a call from Bush. They included post cold war threats and made plans to deal with them. You can't be so naive to think they don't plan for everything can you?

Honestly what is the wrong doing here? FEMA screwed up bad, but who made any money off this?

I'm a bit of a conspiracy theorist, and think that the manipulations of the power elite go far beyond what most people want to imagine, but even I think you're overreaching on this one Unbreakable.

Yeah, I am not even sure what he is getting at really. No one made money off it since the article said that FEMA bought them back for the price they were sold. In fact FEMA is losing a ton of money, which makes Bush look even worse.

I'd love this but not enough to pay $40 for it...looks really cool though.

It's also gimped, you only get the tracks for the country you live in. Each regional release only has 4 tracks and the trains associated with them. So you don't get the European routes and trains for instance.

Actually hes right, I saw some trailers in the GSA catalog the other day, but there was a little note at the bottom of the page saying you could only buy them if you were friends of Bush. I thought that was kind of weird, but it all makes sense now. Thanks Unbreakable!

Just not feeling it for the stop loss guys, they should have done some research before they signed up during a war.

You're right, they should have done some research or actually read the contract when enlisting.  I was "stop-loss" in 2002 for another tour and this is after I already did 8 years of service.  My drill instructor once said, "the fastest way out of boot, is to finish it."  It's the same way with another tour, finish it or risk having the government ruin your civilian life.

Well I wouldn't go that far, I am on my 5th enlistment and I don't think I have ever read the contract smile, but the possibility of stop loss was always pretty clear if you talked to people or read CNN/FOX etc.

I hear the sequel to this movie is going to be about Reserve guys pissed off because they joined for college money and then actually had to deploy.

While I have no idea what spurred this post, I have to say it's quite annoying. I can come here and see 10 new posts from Daehawk, and then I go to OO and see the exact same posts there. smile (Joking!! I don't really care, it kind of amuses me.)

You posted a link of a proposed plan, that did not claim that we were pointing anything at Iran.

You know so little on how nukes work and the policies surrounding them, it would be better if you just didn't comment on them because you are making yourself look like a fool.

Well I'm glad you said that!  Since you know so much more than me, I'm sure you can easily show how and why I'm wrong, citing all your sources, etc.

I look forward to reading it!

Cite sources? I don't need to, it's what I do for a living, and something I am not going to talk about on an internet forum beyond what I have said already. I am not getting up here fear mongering by throwing around ideas with no backing or basis, I am just pointing out to you that you literally know nothing about the subject, nor do you care to learn. I am also not the one telling everyone here that they are uneducated about everything under the sun like you are. Except on one subject, but in that subject, I do have a bit more knowledge than you.

You cannot say things here Unbreakable without any credible support and declare everything you say as fact and then expect us all to believe you because you tell us you are more knowledgeable than us. In fact you are doing what the government does, but even more extreme.

In the end I think you have issues, I don't mean that as an insult, but you say such absurd things, its hard to believe that a sane person could come up with such ideas. But at the same time you don't research anything out of your bubble, you read what you want to and ignore everything else.

I am done responding to you, it only encourages you to get on your soap box and spew more tripe.

converted MMIII to one warhead instead of 3?
and i still think there has been a less than subtle shift in how cavalier those within government, and those attempting to become government, view the "usability" of nuclear weapons.  my one consolation is, again, the high ranking military officials who will hopefully be screaming in their ears to tone down the rhetoric

Despite what certain people will have you believe, there hasn't been any big changes in the mission. It is still peace through deterrence. The DoD makes "just in case plans" for everything, when the media gets a hold it they freak out and claim that we are now doing things differently. It's just not the case. The idea of us just going around using nukes because we can is absurd and is the equivalent to Bush's saber rattling. Unbreakable can scream all day that we have nukes aimed at Iran and Bush has been given permission to use them, but its the same as Bush going up there and saying if we don't remove Saddam from power the world is going to end. It's all just talk with no basis in reality.

The fact that the goverment is loosening the trigger on the nukes for a broadser set of use, specifically non nuclear threats, is terrifying!

i find it scary too.  and its not just the the government, the politicians running for president on both sides of the isle have lobbed around more than enough hypothetical nukes as well.  the last three or four years have made incredible strides backwards in the field of nonproliferation

I am guessing you don't know how we recently got rid of the Peacekeeper weapon system and converted MMIII to one warhead instead of 3? We also got rid of a ACMs and have converted some other missiles.

Honestly you guys, as far as nukes go, don't believe anything you read. The government doesn't make any of this information public knowledge and the media guesses to fill in the holes. One base I was at the press reported that we shipped our nukes to England. We didn't even have nukes. They just saw bombers land empty and take off with missiles.

Now you are just being silly. Please post links comparing the GOP to the mob, that should be good for a laugh.

You say you know more than anyone else here about things, but you already admitted you don't know anything about Hezbollah (nor do you care to know anything), and then you claim something as fact about weapons you obviously don't know anything about. Please post about something you do know, and then please give legitimate links and not just the insane rantings you seem to like.

Unbreakable, I have spent 15 years in the nuclear weapon business (ICBM and ALCM) and I can say without a doubt, you do not know what you are talking about. You don't know where nuclear weapons are, you don't know how they work, you don't know where they are aimed (or anything about how that works), you don't even know the policies on them are. You are stating your opinion, which is completely wrong. Even what the press tells you is usually completely wrong. I have been involved in various things that the press reported on and they almost always get the story completely wrong.

You are not more knowledgeable on anything, you spout your opinions and then back them up with articles that don't really prove your point. So quit stating your opinion as fact, because it is not.

Literally everyone?  I don't say it, so it can't be literally everyone.

Also... just because Hezbollah "reveres" Iran doesn't make them an affiliate (and that seems like a horribly vacuous claim anyway.  What is that supposed to mean, exactly?).  There are terrorist groups attacking Turkey who "revere" the USA.  So does that mean we are attacking Turkey?  In fact, they are indirectly getting funding from the USA, and using some US-made weapons.

So I guess America is at war with Turkey.  Why do we hate Turkey?

Anyone who knows anything about the situation. Do a search for Hezbollah funding. Really you need to do some reading on Hezbollah because your denial really makes it sound like you haven't.

Reveres in that it follows an Islamist Shi'a ideology developed by Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, leader of the Islamic Revolution in Iran. It wants the same things as Iran. Destruction of Israel which they both readily admit.

Who said anything about being at war? I am saying Iran is a threat to Israel and ME peace.

The US is not funding Kurds to attack Turkey. We are not calling for the destruction of Turkey. But yes I am sure Turkey is not happy with us for helping the Kurds, even though we are funding them for other reasons. But then again Turkey wants to wipe out the Kurds, so we are helping them defend themselves. Really doesn't compare to the Iran/Hezbollah thing.

And really Unbreakable, we are the same wave length here, I am definitely not trusting of the government at times, nor the press, and I don't think Iran is as a huge problem to US as Bush would like us to think. But to say they are just some harmless nation just isn't true. They are very much a threat to Israel and their actions re-enforce that. Israel is a close ally of ours, so we are involved.

That's not true, it's meant as a travel computer. This is for people want an ultra mobile laptop who want to surf the net, listen to music and write email from their hotel room. I literally never use my laptops DVD drive when I travel, unless I am gaming, but who buys a Mac to game?

If you do want a DVD drive you just pay $100 more and carry it with you. Its still smaller than your average laptop. Jobs also mentions that you can transfer stuff from your PC or Mac through the wireless.

The price is high because of the technology, it will come down as always, but right now its new, and small is expensive. This thing isn't replacing the other Macs, it's a supplement for people who want the basics in a very thin, light package.

Believe people who have been correct in the past.  That doesn't sound too difficult.

Well literally everyone says Hezbollah is funded and reveres Iran. Hezbollah doesn't deny attacking Israel, in fact they use Iranian weapons. I am not sure how you can ignore Iran calling for the destruction of Israel and then claim that they have nothing to do with attacks on them. Again they attack them directly, that doesn't mean they aren't involved.
