Am I the only one who thinks yesterday's shooting down of a dead spy satellite was intended to show off U.S. weaponry? Experts claim there was only a very slight chance the craft would land in a populated area or cause some kind of toxic cloud, so I have to think this was a case of a $40 million dollar "look what we can do" and a little bit of "beware" sprinkled in.
Have you seen the video? It's sweet. It looks like the Death Star blowing up.
