An issue of scale

The US is in a bit of a spat with the rest of the world over . But I saw an article on space weapons that made me laugh

From the article:

The White House is due to announce a new space policy this month, the first overhaul in a decade. Some U.S. experts have said it will underscore the Pentagon's determination to protect its existing space assets and maintain dominance of outer space.

For some reason that strikes me as a statement that is going to be sublimely funny someday. I wonder if my cats are vying for dominance of that one clean litter box in the back of the basement.
