    Default Only in America.

    Well where else could you buy a "Titan 1 ICBM Missile Complex"? Wonder how much comission Ebay gets from this?

    Sorry it isn't hi-res, but since most of it is underground I guess you wouldn't see it anyway!

    Is it better to be told to "Have a Nice Day" by someone who doesn't mean it, or to be told to "Eff-OFF" by someone who does?

    Out of all the things I have ever seen for sale on the internet that is the only thing I really really really... want!

    I am going to dive down the back of all my sofas to find the money!

    This item is slightly, how would you say it, dangerous if a terrorist purchased it
    I know there is no missle, but I mean they could most definetly use it to mount an Anti-Air gun in side and we'd never see it

    Certainly is an eye opener. Makes you think how the guy got his hands on it in the first place to be able to sell it on Ebay. Then why is he selling on Ebay? Clearly little interest from other more appropriate parties than everyone on the planet.

    I don't really get the comments about Ruby Ridge and Waco, though I do know what happened there & I also know they have gone down in history as 2 major FBI balls-ups.

    & without being rude, I think the terrorist comment is verging on freakish paranioa. Despite what we are being told (inculding here in the UK where Blair used the word terrorist 14 times in a single conference speech), it really shouldn't be the first thought when we encounter something like this. I can't express enough how complicated terrorism might be. But for its irradication we must firstly look at ourselves & quit the preemtive strikes.
    Thats enough politics, I know it's not generally welcome here, and rightly so.

    Peace, M
    All of us here are fascinated by something. So what is it?
