Stop acting so surprised, the Star Wars program has been running for over twenty years.
And your point is...?
Notice how NASA gets its budget cut and how its the Air Force developing a new orbiter. No new arms race, eh?
And if you now tell me, the X-37 project would be about replacing the space shuttle and resupplying the ISS then I am sorry to tell you, nope, thats what the Falcon 9 is for:
Notice how NASA does not keep the project a secret and notice that the flights to the ISS are scheduled allready.
You see the differences now?
