Actually…working on the verification side during the SALT treaties, there were all kinds of issues.
Everyone hemmed and hawed on what constitutes a weapon,
wether a mirv was a space weapon.
Technically it is, but it goes up, then down, instead of being stationed ‘in space’
ready for a moments notice attack.
If it was stationed in space it was a violation.
As to the hunter satellites…yeah, they are there, but so what if you loose a satellite
to another satellite, not the same as a having a targetable missile head ready to drop on you.
Response times get all SHORT for that scenario.
In the end, the USAF already has a Space Command, I don’t think the Orange Pit knows,
and there are enough BAD things already up there, we don’t need any more.
I thought Presi-dent-in-the-head was pretty good.
