‘A reasoned arsenalization’

Seriously, France? You’re planning to put machine guns and laser weapons on your new satellites by 2030, and you’re calling it ‘reasoned arsenalization’? You know, just in case any of those uppity ‘foreign’ satellites start to invade.

According to an article today, on Space.com, this insanity is actually a thing. A thing that is obviously in ‘response’ to the US plans to create a ‘Space Force’ of its very own. (not that anyone would ever admit that, of course)

Given the ‘civilized’ nature of the modern human, I suppose it was inevitable, but calling it ‘reasoned arsenalization’ is just apathetic. Where’s the zealous acronymization of M.A.D. I ask you?

M.A.D. stands for Mutually Assured Destruction. One of the many insanities to come out of the ‘cold war’ between the US and the Soviet Union.

Please note: sarcasm mode has been engaged for most of this post.

  1. I had to check if that story came out on April 1st. No such luck.

    In “other news” today a small television-relay satellite went on the rampage in orbit, shooting down fifty other satellites before the Police Satellite (which had been issuing parking tickets to space junk) was able to stop it. As yet there is no known motive for the spree…

    Seriously, when I stop and actually think about it I often hope that the human species doesn’t make it beyond our own moon. Dogs maybe, I’d let dogs off the planet in a heartbeat, but not humans.

    I hope the aliens fly past and turn the bloody things off. The world’s men in power have gone mad, note I said, men. The world should be run by women. xxx

    In ancient Egypt many long periods were matriarchal, and evidently they did very well during those times. So, yeah….good idea!
