On the other hand, the Navy totally lost out on space launched NSA spy satellites to NRO. It's a lesson we all learned when we were young. Let those who care, look after the things that matter to them. The Navy has demonstrated that it can kill satellites at will in NEO. GEO is beyond the reach of all but 3 countries. We'll know who did it when they launch.
There is only one power that can kill things in NEO and falling. We call it ABM . It used to be against the rules.
The very first principle of fire control is target acquisition. Try to imagine how long aircraft last in a domain that has the means to search things out in orbit and destroy them.
Except for us and those like us.
