A general Twilight War coupled with the syndrome helps quite a bit.
The problem is that Kessler Syndrome requires a lot more density to be assured to eliminate the comm-nets and map-nets. While there are nearly a million bits and bobs up there (ISTR 300K being trackably large), the actual hit rate is pretty darned low at present.

How do you get the Kessler syndrome going?
