SPACE WIZARDRY AT ANNUAL SPACE SYMPOSIUM IN COLORADO

This 3-minute video by Global Network board member Loring Wirbel shows a bit of the razzle-dazzle at the annual corporate Space Symposium in Colorado Springs. Each year thousands of folks (7,500 this year) from the aerospace industry, military, academia, politicians, and media gather for this huge celebration of high-tech glory gee-wiz US space "control and domination."

This video gives you an idea of how proud they are of their space wizardry. But they know it is getting more and more expensive, and our economy is in crisis, so one of the key goals of this "Symposium" is to use the event to build the public relations case that they are protecting us from the bad guys. The classic sales job - 21st century empire style.

You are paying for it.
