ahh well I don't know much about the civil war, but one of the reasons of the war was slaves, and most of the slaves came from africa and there is sand in africa.(assuming that is what you mean by north/south)

The brits what about them? although I am sure they use oil

and hitler wanted more oil.. but both of his plans to capture more (middle eastern and north african) oil failed.

so then wars are started over sand and oil... then if we are american, we put a Sadam into power, sell him WoMD then accuse him of having them and kick him out of power...

Yeah, you're right, I mean, what are the chances of an alien using a Mac anyways? He's gonna be on a Linux box ;)

actually they are still using the commodore 64 platform, they are after all stealing our technology. The problem is they are light years away. Maybe we can strike a deal with them for info on the 286? We will even through in OS/2

War, what is it good for? For one it gives me something to do then sit around here and fix broken gear. It affords me the opportunity to visit a country I probably wouldn't on my own and while I am visiting it allows me to kill people without going to jail. Also, I get extra money for being there. So all in all I think it is good for a lot of reasons. Hmmm, I wonder what kind of pay I would get if I had to go into space and destroy the pong playing aliens? Don't know how an M-16 would react on another planet, something to ponder.

that depends on the density of the planet. If it is a large planet, say the size of jupiter, you would have to shoot at a short distance. If it was the size of mercury, you could shoot accurately much further and the velocity of the bullet would not slow as much.

Now if you shot in space, the bullet would travel at the maximum velocity till gravity from some large object pulled it into its orbit.

Jupiter would be difficult considering it is made of gas. Mercury would suck because it is extremely hot there. Iraq has nothing on Mercury. Plus just because Jupiter is large does not mean it has more density. Sorry, I'm kind of a space nerd.

there is no terminal velocity in space... it would continue with the velocity it was fired with untill it gets gravitated toward an object

We don't want to <i>win</i> the war with the Pongs, we just want it to stretch on for a looong loong time. Perhaps we could arrange a sort of a cold war, like the American/Russian one. So we are all so scared of the Pongs that we get all together and big technological advances and stuff, but not too many people die. And it never ends. Because as soon as you actually win a war the country always goes to hell.

The Pongs? We're on the side of the Pings in this particular war example I guess?

What exactly are "Pongs"? People who smell?

Guns we use today, hmmmmm. We still use the tried and true M16A2 service rifle. Some units use M4 carbines. M2 .50cal machine gun, M249G Squad Automatic Weapon, M240 machine gun, M198 Howitzer, M1A1/A2 battle tank, Light Armored Vehicles, Amphibious Assault Vehicles, M9 9mm Pistol, TOW II guided missile system, the JAVELIN guided missile system, several jets with an assortment of missiles, the list goes on and on. Hope that answers your questions some.

I read plenty. I just have better things to do with my time than learn about fictional alien races. I'd rather further my knowledge of something a little more realistic that actually helps me improve my abilities. Try it sometime, it's good for you.
