Yeah, whatever. I guess we should give up GPS and all the other military satellites that led to things we use to make you happy. Will that satisfy you, or should we give up all the things we use that started for the military too?
How exactly does launching the same unarmed satellites that commercial companies launch "destroy space"? Oh wait, let me guess, as soon as the word "military" is included it's Evil and Wrong, and if we just got rid if them the world would instantly become a better place, right?
