If I were a UFO buff, my thinking would be that the "the pentagon" is actually shooting down an incoming threat from outer space. now, what a way to spread a pretty decent conspiracy theory, eh?
Seriously, though. Why is the Pentagon getting involved???

Odd, when China destroyed a weather satellite a few years back it wasn't as much their toying with space weaponry that raised ire. American politicians used the words "disgusting and reprehensible" that the resulting orbital debris could endanger astronauts and other satellites.

So I guess American politicians won't mind if we look at their plan in their own words, disgusting and reprehensible.

We have all this technology, but we have too blow up a broken satellite? We can't fix it? Thing probably cost a billion dollars and we're gonna just blow it out of the sky?! Man, we sure are utilizing the taxpayer dollars in the proper fashion or should we just see it as a form of credit from the "Federal Reserve"?

Condemning the Chinese then doing the exact same thing we once again become the worlds' big-mouthed hypocrite. Why can't the US mind it's own business for awhile?

here let me translate : Maybe it will hit somebody's house. I hope the government has insurance. Garbled text. I'm very worried and can not sleep at night any more because this might happen.
If the Government shoots it down so that it hits some one's house it will probably be the President of Iran's house. Don't worry, be happy .
