Chair Force Engineer

After reading Bill White's comments on Transterrestrial Musings, in reference to my proposed moon mission, I get the impression that he thinks I advocate a military takeover of L1. In fact, nothing could be farther from the truth. Given the current geopolitical climate, I believe that a military moon outpost is an absurd idea.

I just want to remind my readers that anything I post here is my own opinion and not an official one espoused by the US Air Force or any defense contractor. If anything, I live in constant fear that Air Force people are being rubbed the wrong way by this blog (or have already been rubbed the wrong way) and want to pull the plug on it.

To give Mr. White credit, his plan for an L1 takeover by a "helpful billionaire" under the cover of Greenpeace sounds like a great plan for James Bond's next nemesis. After all, "why make billions when we can make... millions?"
