This might be the election, right here. In some manner it could be a weapon but not the firing kind. If it was a weapon, it is there with the approval of rump and Glen and Joe and the other cons here.

A mysterious Russian satellite displaying "very abnormal behaviour" has raised alarm in the US, according to a State Department official.

"We don't know for certain what it is and there is no way to verify it," said assistant secretary Yleem Poblete at a conference in Switzerland on 14 August.

She voiced fears that it was impossible to say if the object may be a weapon.

Russia has dismissed the comments as "unfounded, slanderous accusations based on suspicions".

The satellite in question was launched in October last year.

"[The satellite's] behaviour on-orbit was inconsistent with anything seen before from on-orbit inspection or space situational awareness capabilities, including other Russian inspection satellite activities," Ms Poblete told the conference on disarmament in Switzerland.

"Russian intentions with respect to this satellite are unclear and are obviously a very troubling development," she added, citing recent comments made by the commander of Russia's Space Forces, who said adopting "new prototypes of weapons" was a key objective for the force.

You can fire different things at satellites besides bullets and bombs, though those are very effective at close range. Farther out, RF and laser light can work quite nicely. Russia's alarming satellite isn't anything we don't already have. Neither is the Space Force. Already in our current command structure. Thing is, Russia calls theirs that, so of course drumpf had to have one too.
