So let’s talk about how The Last Jedi is a profound treatise on the follies slashing your defense budget.
Spoiler warning and don’t you @ me. You asked for this, Twitter.
Planet sized lasers and 37 mile long Star Destroyers, you hopeless dopes, that’s what!
What the hell did you blow the Republic discretionary budget on? Sullustian poetry slams?
And those bombers, in an era of light speed travel, moved like a Ford Pinto and relied on gravity to drop their bombs for some reason! In space.
Meanwhile one of your dopey NCOs is in some space casino blathering about an evil military space industrial complex
In the military, we have a term for some who commands 400 troops. A Captain.
Sure, Space Lockheed would call that $900 fix a 20-character name and charge you 400% for it.
But at least you could hide and maybe have more than 13 troops to cover the entire galaxy by the credits
‘the Soviet Union ahem *Empire* is gone. They’ll never come back! No need for a big military anymore! Let’s dump all the money into Space Pell Grants!’
Like maybe a Space War College where you remind your Resistance officers that a frontal assault on AT-ATs was tried at Hoth and failed miserably.
You have an agility edge you dorks! Even the Egyptians understood how to flank!
But we know what The Last Jedi’s message *really* was — a powerful treatise in support of rebuilding the US military. I salute you!🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
