No Death Star?

The White House rejects the Death Star petition?!?

The US government has rejected a petition urging it to build a "Death Star", claiming it was too expensive, conceptually flawed and did not fit in with the policy of not blowing up planets. 
[The petition] rationalised that "by focusing our defence resources into a space-superiority platform and weapon system such as a Death Star, the government can spur job creation in the fields of construction, engineering, space exploration and more, and strengthen our national defence". 
[The White House respondent] said the estimated cost of $850 quadrillion would not help deficit reduction plans and asked: "Why would we spend countless taxpayer dollars on a Death Star with a fundamental flaw that can be exploited by a one-man starship?"

With all due respect, I think everyone is missing the bigger picture here.  We will need that Death Star to protect our space platinum!
