Should the real threat of an Asteroid be a defense issue? It would seem to me that Asteroids are a bigger threat to our nation then nuclear war(today), so it kind of makes sense to me that this would be a defense issue. As a defense issue it would be deserving of defense funding...

The Cretaceous–Paleogene (K–Pg) extinction event,[a] formerly known as the Cretaceous–Tertiary (K–T) extinction,[b] was a mass extinction of some three-quarters of plant and animal species on Earth—including all non-avian dinosaurs—that occurred over a geologically short period of time 66 million years (Ma) ago

Of course, this should be a defense issue since it's about defending the welfare of humankind which can be potentially wiped out by an asteroid impacting our planet.

Considering what almost happened a few months back? Yeah!

Yes, I don't think anybody will say "no"..


"Liberterianism is a mental disease. A national health crisis and a threat to the future of this country...Worse than the threat from terrorism, asteroids, disease and yes global warming.
It is mindless anti-government idiocy. If it isn't turned back I predict the end of this country as a world power. Simply put the need to educate our entire population like any sane country is sen as wrong by the cult that practice this foolish idiocy. So is simple workers rights, child labor and every other sane policy of the modern world."
