    tough

    Commentary

    US forces should leave Afghanistan, even if a deal with the Taliban fails https://www.defensenews.com/opinion...nistan-even-if-a-deal-with-the-taliban-fails/
    by the way I've recently read the NYT story
    U.S. and Taliban Agree in Principle to Peace Framework, Envoy Says https://www.nytimes.com/2019/01/28/world/asia/taliban-peace-deal-afghanistan.html

    time will tell the rest

    ... whatever, I particularly liked the chunk

    "platforms that we then described as game changers"

    but OK here's the complete text (http://aviationweek.com/defense/usaf-may-not-purchase-stealthy-tanker-chief-says):

    this is interesting:
    "The Navy currently ... has plans to convert “all Aegis destroyers to fully missile defense capable” status, meaning 60 ships will be able to perform the missile defense mission by 2023."
    More Missile Defense Ships, New Ground Deployments
    so let's wait and see, but now I go to bed LOL

    Well, if spacex starship will happen, it's outright naive to rule out its military applications.
    This concept already includes in-orbit refuellings...
