#4 Usually we wait for an actual war to break out before declaring somewhere a war zone. That said, space will be a battleground if near-peer festivities break out. Remember that ChiCom ASAT test that left a *bleep*load of debris in low orbit? Satellite surveillance and comms is an essential part of our warfighting ability. An enemy would be foolish to ignore it. And we would be foolish not to prepare for it.

#5 And we would be foolish not to prepare for it.

Remember the 2 year robot shuttle mission?
