to disconnect Russia from the world wide web if he starts filling low earth orbit space with satellite debris, or if he fires chemical weapons or any tactical nuke artillery shell.

Shut off the country's internet and the people should go crazy and hopefully kill him.

Despite what I think about Musk (he is a nutcase)... These satellites are an innovation and important for bringing broadband to many people without internet infrastructure.

If this threat were come to pass... I would think this is a major escalation by Russia... depriving people of communications and links to the outside world. It's a dangerous line to cross, and I would think the US would respond in-kind... knocking out Russian satellites.
