GPS Backup

Prodded by Congress, the federal government is reexamining its
decision to abandon eLoran, a network of ground stations capable of
supplying essential timing and positioning data to power, phone, and
other critical networks if something happened to GPS.

Sure. Set up a useless, expensive, maintenance heavy ground network and
don't use GLONASS or Galileo as timing sources which are maintained by
the tax bases of other countries.

No wonder the US is $18T in federal government debt. The trough suckers
keep telling Congress to be as stupid as possible and Congress keeps
getting more stupid by the minute.

Setting off two nukes in space will disable them all.
Or imagine a cheap terrorist attack
by smuggling in a lot of jamming equipment
and turning them on all at once all over the place.
or ...
