green Fish good to see you again, interesting, I think the amount of money spend to do this for a military advancement it would be a waist of money and time, being that this technology would provide military superiority, but given that the global unity is a bigger movement between the super powers of our planet.
I agree with a poster on the link you provided, I feel the same way,
Now, if it was for human exploration of the universe, I am for it with one disappointment, the same as it is on earth to build roads and highways gets very expensive, the same in space the cost is astronomical, for such a small advancement in space travel.

That is a great looking piece of kit and no doubt highly advanced. It's also a complete waste of money. This technology is only of use in a war with a major power such as China and Russia, and such a war is simply not going to happen because the costs of such a war would be catastrophic for all parties. Even the most fanatical Republican knows this.
Luckily, I don't live in the US, so I'm not paying for this with my tax dollars. If you do live in the US, make sure you have stocks in the companies that make money out of these projects, so you at least get some of your money back. The industrial military complex - alive and well.
