And I thought funding terrorism was illegal-   "The European Court of Human Rights says France violated the rights of Somali pirates who had attacked French ships and has ordered compensation for them over judicial delays. The nine Somali pirates should get thousands of euros because they were not immediately brought before a French judge, the court ruled. One is to get 9,000 euros (£7,000) and the others sums of up to 7,000 euros. The judges faulted France for...
Just read my posts.
 I don't think the so-called "moderate" CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) is helping matters. The first picture is their new leaflet. The second is one of their old ones. They are a disgrace, and yet they are prominent in the US.     ~ http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/11/hamas-linked-terror-org-cair-discourages-muslims-from-talking-to-fbi And now this one too- ~ http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/11/hamas-linked-terror-org-cair-to-muslims-lady-liberty-says-shhhh

  The EU is destroying Europe, but that's another issue. I hope that these major projects, which are a collaboration between nations, will continue and that they help smaller ventures rather than hinder them.  Catalonia hasn't declared independence and the EU, to the best of my knowledge, wouldn't support their independence, mostly because it wants to draw its own new boundaries instead, and it wants to keep its members in the club.  
Europeans themselves haven't achieved that much in space before, so this is their first attempt at something big. These people feel that they are at the cutting edge finally, and that's got be exciting.  Contact is still there. It just dropped out a few times. I think they'll know more in the morning.
 Be nice if it did speed things up. Some people are already getting excited about it- "Following the first successful touchdown on a comet by the European Space Agency’s Philae probe, a NASA director expressed his own excitement by declaring it a big step toward “moving off this planet” and “taking” the entire solar system. The U.S. space agency’s planetary science head, Jim Green, said the successful touchdown on Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko on Wednesday is evidence...
