: : In case you were wondering, Frenchy's link basically showed a bunch of aerial pictures. They showed vague pictures that could have been anything and then gave them scarey subtitles like 'Cuban Barracks'. It's similar to what Casey of the CIA came up with in teh '80s. Casey looked at a picture of a dirt field in Nicaragua and came up with teh following:
: : "Dirt field ----> baseball field. A baseball field means Cubans, because Nicaraguans dont play baseball. (never mind Dennis Martinez and the Nicaraguan Olympic team). Cubans means Soviet agents. Therefore, a dirt field proves the existence of Soviets in Nicaragua."
: You have to tell me where you got this Casey bit w/the baseball field. I try to keep up on these things, but this is classic.

Looks pretty well researched to me, a quality that I know people here at this board value. Unless, that is, the research happens to show that they don't have a clue.
Anyhow, instead of pretending to know something you don't, instead of remaining willfully ignorant, try clicking here.
