    Well, if you've got a cheaper bullet that can hit and totally destroy a bus-size target dead on 130 miles straight up that is moving 17,000 miles an hour, then the Pentagon wants to hear from you. :D

    That was amazing, hitting a bus sized target in outer space from the ocean.
    and I get jazzed when I hit a bulls eye on a paper target from 25 feet.

    I loved the part when I heard that China and the other countries didn't like it. Guess what, try and mess with us, we just showed you what we can do. :D

    China just shot down one of their own weather satellites not too long ago.

    I personaly think that the satalite posed no real threat to anyone on land. The Pentagon just wanted to say look at us we can shoot down a tweety bird in space from the ocean DO NOT PISS US OFF....

    We think that the satalite is a rather large target. They keep saying this thing is the size of a school bus. Yet if you look at the size of the sky this is just a speck of sand on the ocean floor if you really think about it.

    I'm with you there. I think it mostly penis waving at China, just so we coould show them that we have the capability with off the shelf defense products.

    "Congrats on your accomplishments in anti-satellite warfare China, nut, we just did it with a missile that was first fielded 6 years ago. Thanks for playing though guys. Oh, did we mention that we can "Babe Ruth" the satellite that we're trying to hit? That's tight *****es, we can shoot parts off with these things, but seriously, congratulations. I'm just sayin'..."
