Really North

Well, yeah.
Like I've been saying.
We have known officially for over 2 years that Russia and China have launched satellite killers and worked on ground based lasers to disrupt or incapacitate satellites.
What I am saying is that a new arms race in space has begun.
Trump announcing a space force thingy without a cohesive plan has accelerated the process.

/Total threadjack.

Do we have a thread somewhere on Fark on the new Epic Rap Battles of History video that dropped today?

Biden v Trump?

It's pretty good.

All apologies, I will return you now to Star Wars already in progress.

/End Threadjack.

Let's at least hope for the Interstellar Alliance.

The article talks about war in space? that's a joke.  Star Wars coolness aside, with our current stone age technology, war in space would be like two guys in dinghies using grenades at point blank range.  Typical that in a space economy - which in the long run would bring a wealth of resources and industrial processes for peaceful expansion - the first thing Americans think of is a new type of gun they can carry in their pants.

A war in space is as easy as shooting up a couple of satellites. We would no longer have 'space' to play and navigate around but some country would say they 'won'

Fortunately, it looks like we might get through 2020 without the US leaving NATO.

So that's how we end up with this:

Could never get past the final mission, that damn ion cannon always targeted me first and foremost, even through a cloak.

If all terrestrial militaries would kindly relocate all operations to far flung space stations and Mars that might not be so bad.
They can fight out in the cold and everyone who doesn't want to play can lead a happy existence here on Earth.

Win/win!

You want evidence of alien life forms? with advanced weaponry? Because this is how you get aliens with advanced weaponry in the Milky Way! They're not going to stand for our shenanigans spreading into space.

In my defense I tried to get the Gif, not the youtube clip, which would've been better in the case. I don't know how to post Gif but should've  just gone with the youtube.

No snark, an honest foul up on my part.

That is rather quaint. It's been going on way longer than that. Trump just wants to wave his dick around about it.

Shhhhh! You can't go around saying things like that out loud. 2020 will hear you.

Well they can rest assured the our ability to leave this solar system is exactly 0 for at least the next several hundred years (based on historical data on speed increase in even minor spacecraft) to ever reach another star. So I expect them to just put a 'out of order' sign on the system and roll up their windows as they cruise by.
