    Sorry to have gotten my east and west mixed up, George. But you're saying that
    the rotary landfall of the rocks would have the same "thrust" impact on the
    earth as the thrust they've transferred through the people launching them? I
    would have thought there was still a net thrust "that way" as opposed to the
    distributed energies in the landing impacts.
    
    Even if you don't like chinamen and rocks, surely you acknowledge that speeding
    up the earth's rotation, or slowing it down, is simply an application of a
    suitable amount of thrust in the proper direction.
    
    Even the US Military is capable of that. The Chinese are simply numerically
    advantaged.
