China now has the capability to destroy satellites in Space ! The vehicle was launched and successfully destroyed a target, an aging Chinese weather satellite, in space. The United States (who along with Russia have the same capabilities) has filed a formal protest. This means China could destroy satellites, that drive computers, that run our government, stock markets, armies and navy, traffic lights, hospitals.......where's that damn red button?
Didn't we file formal protests in World wars I and II, the Korean War (my bad, Police action), Viet Nam, etc.? I would call Chinese President Hu Jintao or Mental-e-ill or Wun-hung-lo or whatever that inbred little bastard's name is and advise him he's wading into some deep shit!
