Given that we can watch fighting (in wars) from satellite video in real time, how do countries prevent their troops positions from being given away, and weapons shipments from being destroyed?

  • While this is an interesting question it really isn't about politics and they have dealt with similar issues in the past as it was possible to see large troop build ups by having people on the ground report in with phones or radios.

    I was trying to see if there was a military strategy on stack exchange but could not find anything. This seemed to be the most relevant site. Apr 28 at 21:09

    Also, ¿do we actually have "satellite video in real time"? I am a bit skeptical about that, since you can control much of the orbit of a satellite in real time.
