Re: ... US military operations [slightly OT]

LIGHTEN UP!  Just a reminder, if it wasn't for the United States Military, 
there wouldn't be a Satellite
program on this hemisphere, nor would AMSAT-NA exist.  If you had done your 
homework, you would know that it was the USAF that put up many of the 
earliest Amateur Radio Satellites, I don't see Canada putting up any money 
to support space exploration. Your right, this BB isn't moderated so all 
dissenting views can be expressed.

Get a life dude!
