    Americans Demand Military Response After Chinese Shoot Down DirecTV Satellite

    Americans Demand Military Response After Chinese Shoot Down DirecTV Satellite
    January 29, 2007 | Issue 43•05

    WASHINGTON, DC—A citizens' group presented a petition signed by nearly 75 million Americans to key members of Congress Monday, demanding the United States take immediate military action against China after the Communist nation shot down a DirecTV satellite last week. "This is a blatant attack on the American way of life," said the group's founder Abe Saloom. "Some of us lost a DirecTV signal that day, but all of us lost the freedom to feel secure in our DirecTV connections for the future." The statement urged the American military to move swiftly, asserting that many Americans do not know "how they would go on" without the NFL Sunday Ticket package.

    Let's take on the world because our TV is down for an hour or a day.

    I understand that this is a humorous article, but isn't it a bit disturbing that this is possible? (Obviously not DirecTV, but Satellites in general) It seems like all of our communications are through satellites now days. It’s something that the military is taking into account, I hope.
