The problem is that she may be "right" about her grandfather. There are many sites where such coexistent "footprints" have been found, All of them have been proven to be false, either accidental or fraud.

So if she has only family legend to go by, then she is actually correct. Only her grandfather's interpretation was incorrect.

Has already been achieved. A eair time ago someone implanted a small silicon covered magnet under the skin of their left pinkie. The article I read said it worked very well.

Not only that, Afghanistan was not invaded to procure Bin Laden either.

It may not have been in the USA news but the Taliban offered to turn Bin Laden over to the UN to tried by international court. They would not turn him over to the US because the US would not supply even the informal required to extradite someone from which the US does have a treaty (such as the UK, Aus, NZ and many, many more (but not Afghanistan). They (the Taliban) asked for the evidence to extradite or if not then they would turn him over to the UN. Despite being a crazed and despotic government they actually did the morally correct thing.

As soon as they did this the invasion began. Bin Ladin was just an excuse. The real reason is wanting to build a pipeline across Afghanistan to carry oil from the far east.

What happened to both countries were, and are, war crimes. Not only that it was a crime against the people of the United States

This is not a conspiracy theory. The evidence is open and clear. It is just being ignored.

Not so much. You would be looking for matching entry and exit times from the logs of your compromised servers. Eventually you will track down your mark. You don't actually need the route.

I think you make a mistake. The extreme right are dishonest assholes too.

And there are some honest leftists and socialists as well as a few rightwingers. There are some with principles. But politics brings out the worst in both sides. Nevertheless I prefer those who at least are forced to maintain the image of having a social conscience rather than those that don't. Government should be "for the people" even if it isn't "by the people".

However anything works that minimises the disparity of wealth. If you look at countries and time and places both the country and the people are are most successful and happy when that disparity of wealth is the least. Despite any politics

Okay, disclosure. I am an Australian as is/was Murdoch. I have been alive through most of his business manipulations. I was once even an infinitesimal part of his empire. Never in my life have I known him to do anything altruistic. Everything is/was based on self interest. I wouldn't consider him liberal in any way. Even when he appears liberal it is based in self interest or maintaining power in both camps. Someone who appears liberal when the wind blows that way is not a liberal to me. A liberal has to be liberal in principle; has to have liberal principles and not switch as the wind blows. Murdoch has never appeared to fit this image. So I cannot see Murdoch as a liberal. Not in any way.

In order to defeat Tor you need to control or have the logs from only 1% of exit points. There is about 3,000 active at anytime. The use of Tor will not protect you from a serious nation state who have the ability to compromise 300 servers. It will protect you from local police authorities but not a national security organisation.

There are means to take it further but they are lengthy, time consuming and expensive. Not something many individuals could accomplish.

That will remain true until that are a couple of orders of magnitude more exit points

Just as a point of interest can you name any countries that transitioned from a barbaric state to a civilised without a dictator or tyrant being involved? The US maybe an exception to this but then there was the tyrant George.

The more usual course was the one that Iraq was following, a tyrannical rule that led eventually to more and greater freedoms for the populace. It takes a tyrant to create order which is then a single point the populace can aim at rather than a group of local warlords that just change over over time.

You got your information wrong. Iraq was not destroyed because it had anything to do with 9/11. Iraq had nothing to do with it. Saddam Hussein was an opponent of Al Quaida. Iraq was destroyed because Hussein presumed to sell oil for Euros thus elimination the world wide requirement to purchase US dollars to buy oil which would decrease the US economy if the use of Euros became widespread.

I don't see how this argument applies.

The use of torture appears to be continuing to this day. The user 1s33c (correct or incorrect) was pointing out current, not ancestral, practices. Nor did the user say anything about his country of origin.

So what exactly did you mean by your post? Was it an attempt to obfuscate the issue?
