Back in the 80s, when Reagan proposed his space defense program, the Democrats ridiculed the plan and dubbed it "Star Wars." Now, 30+ years later, we're scrambling to develop and deploy the very kinds of technology that we might have had by now if the idea had been taken seriously. And the stakes couldn't be much higher. As usual, our politicians have been shown in retrospect to be the same lazy, greedy, short-sighted shit sacks they are today.

F117 first flew 40 years ago. The US had the best tank of the 80s and 90s.

But the general tenor of the above comment is truthful. Too much coasting going on.

There are too few engineering and and other STEM graduates. The Chinese have more STEM graduates and since we have been stolen blind maybe we should and need to steal from the Chinese?
