Criminal nonsense! The models "prove" what happened. We have a graph shaped like a hockey stick that shows the heavy bombardment started 4 BYA. It's proven science, 97.36% of scientists agree. These cheese-heads are true deniers! If there was more money and power involved in this research I'm sure they would be publicly disgraced and banned from further grant money.
I like Halderman and Heinlen but this nonsense about prime troops in direct contact is sad. Clearly, proxies are what you will use to fight, whether they are remotely controlled or AI's or blockades or cheap meat from some place it doesn't matter. I actually like Ender's Game for that reason even if not done all that well. I hope I didn't spoil anything.
"We also have the right to pay a price if we knowing[ly] say false and reckless things that hurt others." WTF! You just made that up.
At the very least it's called satire and it's not illegal and it's OK to make a profit from such speech. In fact, the more outrageous and the more often you say it the better.

What I really want to know is what kind of toilet paper they use.
