    Europe....

    Fortunately Germany and France have something to check the bollocks that the Yanks and the Russkies tell the world:

    But I am sure Merkin-Sucker LP knows why this device is so much less capable than SuperMerkinaAntenna(TM).

    Uncle Sam .... Late to the Gate and the Party again.

    "it might be difficult or impossible for the USA to know who had done it - or even if anything had actually been done."

    Lewis, Hi,

    What do you think are the Chances of Conficker Chappies being au fait with Space Superiority Programs for Projection of Invisible and Intangible Might which can Disrupt Nations Sublimely ...... to Foreign Order*?

    And what of Blighty's CyberCom Service for InterNetional Provisional Command and Control of IntelAIgent Space Waves? Hush, hush or a non starter, with there being no bods and boffins at the Real SMART Control? That of course, leaves the nation as vulnerable as a virgin in a brothel to wanton abuse and would be a scandal, as well as a crying shame.

    * And man, is that a Lucrative Invisible Export Earner for the Public Purse or is that a Lucrative Invisible Export Earner for the Private Sector.

    Nice to know that our white knight on a horse -

    the US Air Force Space Superiority Wing - is there to protect us all from the dastardly bad guys, who might, for example, use their space and satellite capabilites to start illegal wars of aggression in, say, Southwest, Central, and South Asia. The 95 % of the planet's population who don't happen to reside in the US of A are no doubt delirious with joy after hearing this news - just as we were when we first heard of Echelon, etc....

    Actually No, I am not delirious with joy

    As difficult as it is to believe from our newspapers which I limit to NYT, I suspect that global corporates including European firms have already developed plans to mine the under sea for minerals.........noticed today internet postings of 'rare minerals in scare supply' which of course would indicate that the ruling powers are claiming the necessity of obtaining these 'minerals.'

    Joint US/Canada sea exercise lost 4 of its remotes (7 inches) and sent trained dolphins after them. Naturally satellites would be deployed to replace the aging fleet up there and 'beef up' (how I have come to hate that term) our 'defenses.'

    Where are the posts for the disappearance of Saturn's cloud layers and the new visitor McNaught?
