No. It'll be at Singapore.

Stop trying to make space war happen where there are perfectly fine simmering conflicts down here already. No pudding until you finish your meat.

maldinero: Blow shiat up in orbit, and let the pieces fall where they may.
Makes perfect sense to me.
What could possibly go wrong?


Milly's not wrong. Most people seem to equate space warfare to Space Marines and bullshiat like that. Honestly it will be more like an enemy state taking out a few satellites in LEO and GEO creating a Kessler syndrome making those orbits useless to satellites for decades. If you can't picture the devastating impact if that, then you're focusing on the wrong aspect of the Space Force's mission. Just because it was created under Trump doesn't make it invalid.

The Air Force was handling that fine.  Space Force is a useless waste of resources and should be folded back into the AF come January.


The Air Force was handling it fine for the Air Force and AF assets, which is their MO. Not for the other branches that also depend on space, nor for the American commercial interests.

I got this:

The next Pearl Harbor will be at Pearl Harbor. Otherwise it would be called something else.

Sooo... Space Japan is going to attack our starport on the far side of the moon? Is that what's going to happen?

I'm having trouble with the analogy.

From everything I can tell, he is an honorable man and a good flag officer. But, I do have to agree. Biden should definitely wipe the deck and the General should go be on the board of Raytheon, Boeing, or/and some private equity thingy.
