ARC's 1st Law: As a "progressive" online discussion grows longer, the probability of a nefarious reference to Karl Rove approaches one

Kossacks scared by the big bad military

Plutonium Page has a post on Daily Kos about how the military is looking at their options for Space based combat. All the talk looks preliminary at the moment, but PP decides that this is just scary and too much like the Death Star in Star Wars

I'd be more scared if our military wasn't exploring our options in space. There's nothing magical about space. It's not a magical peaceful place with unicorns and faeries. Surely our enemies, current and future, would deploy weapons in space in a hearbeat if they could.

Complain about the cost, fine, although we might find that space based weapon systems are cheaper than traditional systems both in money and lives, but don't complain about space being weaponized.
