One wonders if Putin and Musk will fairly soon cooperate in a business venture, one that includes his moving to Russia and running their space program. Russian money is clearly behind Trump's reelection attempt. Musk screwed up Twitter for Trump, and I suppose Putin. Putin also has been saying adoring things about Trump as well.

Putrid should polish his knob for the crap he pulled with Starlink.

Turds of a feather and such.

So many Russian fueled lies about this. A civilian Internet company in America directly providing offensive missile targeting support to Ukraine without US government as the intermediary is a no-go. No corporate lawyer will approve that because it's a violation of arms control export laws.

Starlink then spun up Starshield, specifically a defense contractor, contracted to the Pentagon, to provide that service lawfully.

"A civilian Internet company in America directly providing offensive missile targeting support to Ukraine without US government as the intermediary is a no-go."

Since activation, SpaceX's service has been used by civilians and military officials alike. By May 2022, over 150,000 Ukrainians were using Starlink on a daily basis.[3] In fact, Federov publicly claimed that Starlink "is crucial support for Ukraine's infrastructure and restoring the destroyed territories." And as the technology was rapidly integrated into the communications infrastructure of the country, Kyiv's military began applying it creatively in the battlefield, such as using it to control unmanned surveillance and reconnaissance aerial vehicles and unmanned combat aerial vehicles (aka drones).

One can only hope that Putin's praise will cause Musk's head to explode and reassemble itself on Mars.

Why would Putin not gush over Elon Musk? Unlike Biden and many on the left Musk is smart and has common sense. There is not a rabid radical Democrat worth anything anywhere in our government. Democrats gush over the fool New Mexico governor Grisham, and destroyer of California Gov "the French Laundry $350 per person" Newsom. Even the NM Dem AG told his own governor he is not defending her. Democrats need a common sense and brain transplant. We will not survive with Democrats.

Well, to be honest, it was just a single gush. But it's the thought that counts.

#9 for a guy that had common sense, he literally broke Twitter moving a data center without bothering to check code. The code has 70,000 hard coded references to that data center because of how badly it was engineered (hint: most comp sci students aren't production ready). It's still not fixed 9 months later.

If you have Pooty Pants, who is a murderer and a war criminal, "gushing" over you then you obviously need to re- evaluate your life choices.
