God I love the US
Giant Mirrors Could Light Up the Skies
In the hope of building a worldwide network of laser weapons, the United States Defense Department appears to be pondering a fleet of mirror-toting blimps. Defense Tech reports that the Office of Force Transformation, which spends its days dreaming up bizarre new ways to spend all of the country's money, has spent a few years planning this mirror network, which it calls the Tactical Relay Mirror System. At present, there is no known laser efficient enough to support such a global optical weapons system, but at least the blimps will give satellite spotters something new to look at.

Sure you do, you live there! What about us humble asians, what would happen to us the moment Bush decides to turn those weapons against us? *sob*sob*
Get me a green card
Seriously though, how can a blimp fly outside the atmosphere? Doesn't it use the same principle as the balloons?
It appears that the US intends to have martial control of the whole world (but we already knew that), however, for this idea to be implemented, the US would have to violate other countries airspace (which is further evidence that bush intends to take over the world).

As an American, I don't really think that's a bad idea. XD
And 98abaile stop all the hating. He may be stupid and badly advised, but I doubt he's evil.
yeah, nobody is saying its a bad idea. i mean.
blimps. international laser system. thats HARDCORE!
its even cooler than we dont have the laser technology.
America will not succeed in dominating the world as long as the Japanese country still exists, so if I were anyone who was hoping for that, I would forget it.

*Inserts pinky into mouth*
I totally agree about the thing of getting Bush out, though I wouldn't joke about the Lee Harvey Oswold thing. You literally can get arrested for that. The real question is how can we pool together some money for another Oswold. Hmmm....
