This is the truest thing said in this discussion.
The adminstration and Democratic congressmen have received enormous amounts of $$$ from Google, Amazon and other anti-net neut corporations. It is either extremely ignorant or extremely dishonest to make the arguments you just made. So - are you idiots or crooks? Just asking.
Yes, I really want the Internet to become more like the phone companies. Idiot. Thankfully the courts and Congress are there to limit the effect of arrogant bureaucrats.
Mesh networking is obviously a bad idea simply from the common sense observations that it would be inefficient and would facilitate crime.
Who supplies the backbone for your "community wide public access points"? The internet is not magic, you know. It requires money to operate.
You are just being cynical. Congress responds to the will of the people as expressed in elections. If you voted for politicians with no morals or ethics, then you probably have none yourself. If you didn't vote, quit whining.
How cynical. How trendy. How blind.
That was really dumb.
So if Confiker owns Windows boxen it's because Windows is awful and shoddy. But if CN owns Linux boxen it's because they are "misconfigured". Grow up,
To both the idiot who wrote this and the idiot who wrote its parent: One of the most compelling arguments for directed energy weapons, a point I have seen made time after time in briefings, is the reduction and/or elimination of "collateral damage" they will enable. In fact, no one I know in the military even uses the phrase "collateral damage" without a visible reaction of repugnance. The US military, as a matter of strategy and of tactical planning, abhors the idea of killing anyone who is not actively engaging in trying to kill us first. So the billions spent on this project reflect a commitment to that principle, which will be achieved both by the precision of the weapon (especially when used in a tactical engagement) and by its speed and range, which are unique and could possibly eliminate the threat of long-range nuclear weapons forever. THAT was the vision that motivated SDI and the ABL from their beginnings.
Reuters is increasingly a hack agency driven by left-wing politics, so their reporting is less and less reliable.
In fact, for multiple-warhead ICBMs (which most if not all are nowadays) you really have to hit them before they deploy the multiple warheads.
A liquid-fueled missile was destroyed. A solid-fueled one was also engaged but the test stopped short of destroying it (probably for safety reasons.) A previous test did destroy a solid-fueled target See: the article at mda.mil.
but maybe a political one. The governments of India and China both have announced intentions of establishing presences on the Moon. I would rather that the US be a participant in that rather than an onlooker - or hitchhiker.
