To deny access to Space to anyone hostile to U.S. interests

#1
President Bush has signed a new National Space Policy that rejects future arms-control agreements that might limit U.S. flexibility in space and asserts a right to deny access to space to anyone "hostile to U.S. interests."

The document, the first full revision of overall space policy in 10 years, emphasizes security issues, encourages private enterprise in space, and characterizes the role of U.S. space diplomacy largely in terms of persuading other nations to support U.S. policy.

"Freedom of action in space is as important to the United States as air power and sea power," the policy asserts in its introduction.

Hmmm, they're not too keen on the proposed European version of GPS, either.

Does that mean they'll shoot them down, too?

Wouldn't take a lot to b*gger them up, just a cloud of small lead shot ejected into their orbits... No 7s or No 8s ought to do it! :wink:

One good reason for 'Q' branch to remain hush hush, the last thing we need is for them to break the asteroid belt 8O

It's hardly proposed. The finished and launched the first few satellites already!

Why? Were you missing me then?

Anyway, When the Yanks managed to get to the Moon this was all done in the name of exploration, rather than domination. What Bush seems to want to do is control everyone's usage of Space. I think that is a measure of the man and his stupidity. But I've always regarded Rumsfeldt as a Dalek...

Exploration and domination seem historically fairly close. It's just that plonking your flag on the next solar (terran?) satellite reached stands as a general statement of intent...

Well it may be that one leads to the other, but they are very different - as some young ladies will tell you.

Mind you, I've yet to find any woman who would accept me plonking a flag upon her person. The search continues...

So are they intending to arrest or shoot down Lt. Col Yang Liwei next time he goes for a look around up there?

Have the "Rooskis" suddenly become bestest buddies and have the best interest of the US in mind.

More blather, bullshite and sabre rattling from the Shrub.
