Whew, I thought the missle was destroyed in space.
(tip o' the hat to Moe Howard)
And JUST WHEN do you think the Red Chinese Communists give a tinkers damned about international law. That has NEVER stopped a communist before!!! International law?????? What a freaking joke. Like the Red Chinese give a $*&#!!!!
Will America's "Star Wars" missile defense program need satellites for it to work?
Call me cynical but I believe the Chinese knew exactly what they were doing and have just sent a message to the U.S.
There's cocoa butter and mineral oil scattered all over the place now...

HEY,did they use the missle technology Bill Clinton gave to them to shoot it down ? Just wondering !!!
Reputable establishments have rules against this.
Especially since Russia released a statement early this morning stating this was a hoax.
Here is the statement I referenced:
Russia - Reports that China missile hits satellite are rumors - Ivanov
Ah. Very interesting.
Britain has joined the US, Japan and Australia's condemnation of China after the communist country destroyed a satellite in space using a ballistic missile.
EVERYTHING we use depends on satellites... all our new GPS-guided munitions, some of the Star Wars stuff, most of our current navigational and communications equipment... everything.
The Chinese don't give a damn what a bunch of hand-wringing politicians have to say, and they don't care wheteher they sent us a message or not. What they care about is developing weapons systems that work when they need something destroyed... rather than sending a message of compassion and dialogue.
Looks like they got what they paid for.
But...but....China is our friend....aren't they?
The Russians are only a tiny bit less anti-America than the Chinese. They have joint military excercises and non-aggression pacts, and the Russians sell the Chinese weapons and weapons technology. I think we would do well to consider the fact that it may someday be to Russia's benefit if we underestimate Chinese military capabilities.
The Chinese are the only military in the world with a fully active anti-satellite weapons program.
hopefullly they didn't interrupt someone's massage or body scrub, that would be truly unfortunate!
