I bet the Pentagon absolutely hated having to reveal their missile technology to do this. Shooting satellites out of orbit? Who'd have thought it?? No wonder China (and a few others) are curious for more details. We were told that the so-called Star Wars technology was a Ronald Reagan pipe dream and would never happen. Apparently it did. Wake up America! Your Government is LYING to you yet again. This is what your tax dollars are being spent on.
BTW and off topic - the 'liberation' of Iraq is costing the US Govt (ie taxpayer) $10,000 per second. Think about it.
