I don't think so:
From 2001: A Space Odyssey: a human discovers that an animal bone can be used as a weapon. While fighting for possession of a waterhole, he uses the bone to kill. In exaltation, he tosses the bone into the air. It slowly spins end-over-end and morphs into a spaceship. Kubrick's visualization of weapons as a human engine of technological advancement is not analogy or allegory; it is fact. The rockets we ride into space are weapons. GPS is a JDAM and cruise missile system component. Weapons are already in space. Will America or some other country command the high ground? In addition to satellite defense, the US is developing offensive anti-satellite weapons. They will be deployed.
My feeling, we are way ahead on this. So too, we've 'owned the night' for quite awhile now, I'm sure others have caught up; we control the seas. Never look back, move forward.
The best rule of war is, always seek the advantage. There's no country I can think of which ever won a war by making sure its enemy had the same technology...by being 'fair'.
I know, it's like there's this giant conspiracy to help the other nations 'improve their self-esteem.' Crap.
i just had a thought....if we kill them they won't feel so bad.... :alco:
