Now having come to understand that we are all spiritual beings who have chosen to temporarily live a physical existence on this planet, certain musings are inevitable, and shared here.

New Cold War?

The Chinese destroyed one of its aging satellites with an anti-ballistic missile early January 12th. Conceivably, they could now destroy all our military satellites. The White House stated that the “development and testing of such weapons is inconsistent with the spirit of cooperation that both countries aspire to in the civil space area.” The Russians and Chinese have been trying for years to get the US to agree to a ban of space weapons, but we have refused to even consider such a treaty because we wanted to be free to secretly develop a powerful laser to do the same thing. I guess, again, cooperation means let the US do whatever it wants, but the other countries must show restraint.

I guess fighting terrorism isn’t sufficient for keeping us afraid and compliant. Maybe we can fight terrorism and also have a new cold war. Wouldn’t that be fun? [2551]
