Oh Thank You, Great Government (Lew Rockwell)

Lew Rockwell on the upcoming satellite shootdown attempt:

The feds and their media are cheering the forthcoming hyperexpensive shootdown of a hyperexpensive spy satellite in the Pacific. How many billions of other people's money are involved? That's classified, to keep it secret from the Russkies, who might get a laugh out of the spending. But be of good cheer. This will demonstrate the quadrillion dollar missile defense system, which so far has only been able to shoot down vehicle[s] with homing devices in them, which this monstrous bus-sized satellite presumably has. However, it turns out the Navy can only fire the missile when the sea is calm.
