A Spanking about Space Weapons

Dwayne Day is a man that I have interacted in the past online. He's quite an intelligent man and he's graduated to pundit for space related topics. He wrote an interesting article about the NY Times response to the 'weaponization of space'. All I can say is ouch. He's got an extremely good point: milspace does have serious issues with cost overruns. I happen to believe that it has more to do with the culture perpetuated by the defense contractors and their related teet, ahem, procurement system, but c'est la vie.

I'll stick to my guns though that you don't slow down so others can catch up technologically nor militarily. You do your damnest to increase that lead in an intelligent manner.
