The Russians and the Communist Chinese have been working on space weapons and the US Air Force is looking for ways to launch micro satellites into orbit.  Space weapons are difficult to deploy and hard to get them to works.

Launching micro satellites is a great way to overwhelm them or to replace satellites that have been destroyed or otherwise failed.  Micro satellites are also a great way to be able to deploy a capability that was not needed until an emergency required a satellite for that particular orbit.

Space is the high ground and in war the high ground is important.  It allows communication and reconnaissance.   The US needs to continue to develop our advanced weapons because it is the only advantage we have over our potential enemies; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
