Unhappy U.S. Government will not build a Death Star

OFFICIAL WHITE HOUSE RESPONSE TO

Secure resources and funding, and begin construction of a Death Star by 2016.

Quote:
The Administration shares your desire for job creation and a strong national defense, but a Death Star isn't on the horizon. Here are a few reasons:
  • The construction of the Death Star has been estimated to cost more than $850,000,000,000,000,000. We're working hard to reduce the deficit, not expand it.
  • The Administration does not support blowing up planets.
  • Why would we spend countless taxpayer dollars on a Death Star with a fundamental flaw that can be exploited by a one-man starship?
Response by Paul Shawcross - Chief of the Science and Space Branch at the White House Office of Management and Budget

Thanks a lot elected officials!

re: U.S. Government will not build a Death Star

I still think America should just build a nuke platform in space if they want to maintain superiority on China in the future.

It seems feasible, and if there's any arguments in the coming years, all America has to says is the 3 magic words to end it.

"Space nukes, bro."

I would much rather see us construct the U.S.S Enterprise.

Re: U.S. Government will not build a Death Star

To which I counter that point with "leave out the fundamental flaw."

Oh well, the Outer Space Treaty means that a Death Star would be illegal anyway...
