...Senior military leaders, including Gen. John Hyten, the vice-chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, have been discussing for more than a year whether to reveal a secret space weapon by providing a demonstration of its capabilities, the report says.

I don't see a need for this type of thing to become public, what is the justification?

If the rumored capabilities are what people say they are, it's fascinating to see how far along we've come in weaponizing laser tech. Once again, sci-fi becoming sci-non-fi.

Deterrence.

And a minimal risk that moving it outside of SAP channels would compromise it's effectiveness.

#10 I agree with that too.

I hope its a little bit more than just trying to distract from Afghanistan. But I can't say what other purpose this serves.

China is either doubling or quadrupling their ICBM stockpile. We are in the middle of making a show about missile defense, testing Iron Dome in .. I think Arizona? This month.

I can't help but think about this funny scene in Space Force where the US puts this rather pathetic new advanced warfare satellite in orbit and the Chinese already had a far more advanced one that came through and basically neutered the US satellite.

#8 - Yup. Russia has it's satellite hunter-killer satellite so we need some kind of deterrence.

True. Right now it is a -thing- being tracked. A limited public display capabilities makes sense if the intention is deterrence. Idk, I prefer not NTK things being kept NTK, and eventually made public decades down the line, or made public through surprise. This is a cool and bespoke piece of tech, and why potentially fill in knowledge gaps of near-peers,
