Imagine the US without their satelite comunication system, it seems the US just lost its 2nd eye... the 1st eye they lost long time ago cause of ignorance... Now we see how fargile the US weapon system is... its getting darker now... we just do an easy exchange: satelites for peace... take em down for the sake of peace... you've got my vote... lez roll!!!

US tells China concerned by satellite-killer test

WASHINGTON, Jan 18 (Reuters) - The United States, Australia and Canada have voiced concerns to China over a test in space of a satellite-killing weapon last week, the White House said on Thursday.

"The U.S. believes China's development and testing of such weapons is inconsistent with the spirit of cooperation that both countries aspire to in the civil space area," National Security Council spokesman Gordon Johndroe said. "We and other countries have expressed our concern regarding this action to the Chinese."

Using a ground-based medium-range ballistic missile, the test knocked out an aging Chinese weather satellite about 537 miles (865 km) above the earth on Jan. 11 through "kinetic impact," or by slamming into it, Johndroe said.

Canada and Australia had joined in voicing concern, he said.

Britain, South Korea and Japan were expected to follow suit, an administration official added.

A key concern is debris that could interfere with civilian and military satellite operations on which the West increasingly relies.

On the day of the test, a U.S. defense official said the United States was unable to communicate with an experimental spy satellite launched last year by the Pentagon's National Reconnaissance Office. But there was no immediate indication that this was a result of the Chinese test.

No such publicized destruction of a satellite in space has occurred in at least 15 years, said Marco Caceres, a space expert at the Teal Group, an aerospace consulting firm in Fairfax, Virginia.

SATELLITE-KILLING CAPABILITY

Aviation Week & Space Technology, the first to report the test, cited space sources as saying a Chinese Feng Yun 1C polar orbit weather satellite, launched in 1999, was destroyed by an antisatellite system launched from or near China's Xichang Space Center in Sichuan Province.

The satellite-killing capability demonstrated by China was no surprise to the Bush administration, which revised U.S. national space policy in October with an eye on boosting protection of U.S. civilian and military satellites.

In a major speech about the policy last month, Robert Joseph, the State Department's point man for arms control and international security, said other nations and possibly terrorist groups were "acquiring capabilities to counter, attack and defeat U.S. space systems."

"No nation, no non-state actor, should be under the illusion that the United States will tolerate a denial of our right to the use of space for peaceful purposes," Joseph said on Dec. 13.

In classified projects shielded from public debate, the United States has been widely reported to be developing satellite-killers of its own, using more advanced technologies, including lasers.

Caceres said he expected the test to strengthen the Pentagon's hand in seeking funds from Congress to press a host of costly military space programs, almost all of which are over budget and behind schedule.

"They are going to use this for as much as they can," he said, referring to Pentagon officials. Major corporate beneficiaries could be Lockheed Martin Corp. , Boeing Co. and Northrop Grumman Corp. , which build U.S. communications, surveillance and early-warning satellites, Caceres added.

Let's see. America invades Iraq without just cause, strikes us on 911, suppresses and threatens people all over the world, and when these countries attempt to protect themselves, we see this as a threat to our national security or would it be our inability to attack them?

Who is more of a threat to the United States of America?

Her leaders?

or

China?

I'm really on the fence about this one!

In Peace,

With Asia'a huge electronics base they will very soon if they haven't already surpassed American technological superiority. As far as China taking out our spy satellites, Go for it Dudes!
Please!

It is one thing to disagree. But to wish it to fail is something completely distastefull.
