Remember a few weeks back when a petition started going around asking the White House to construct a Death Star for the U.S.? Well, it got enough signatures that the White House had to issue an official response, and though they had to say no, the way they said it is priceless.
Late last week, the White House denied a public petition to construct a Death Star for the United States with a rather cheeky official statement. Now the official Star Wars blog has fired back with its own, equally cheeky official statement direct from the Galactic Empire.
Fans of the original Star Wars trilogy have long wondered: Why, after having it blown up the first time, did the Empire build another Death Star? Now the Pentagon weighs in on why the would-be ultimate force in the universe was really just the Emperor's folly.
