NIMBYist. What is it? Do I look like one? [img]/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif[/img]. Sighing is a common reaction of who encounters a silly argument. Do you regard my concern for (American) civilians as silly, or futile? Well, maybe Iīm too heart-bleeding...
God forbid a taxpayer in another country suffers, eh? Better yet, who cares what really happened, we can just dump the wreckage in the ocean and wash our hands of it. Very selfish...
Iīm not a selfish. Iīm talking from a universal point of vantage. I think iīm expressing a very reasonable concern. As you know, ISS is an international project(*) suject to an international agreement. The spanish "tax-payer" is part of the process. The burden should be equally distributed. And no matter where the "tax-payer" or human being lives. The risks must be reduced at any cost. Spain should be less risky for everyone.
The shuttle is an American bird, she has every right to land here.
NO discussion, sir. I hope the worst case scenario I consider never turns into fact.
(*) I just donīt know if Spain is part of the deal.
