OK, this isn't the best news I've heard lately

U. S. intelligence agencies believe China performed a successful anti-satellite (asat) weapons test at more than 500 mi. altitude Jan. 11 destroying an aging Chinese weather satellite target with a kinetic kill vehicle launched on board a ballistic missile.

The Central Intelligence Agency, the National Security Agency, the Defense Intelligence Agency, NASA and other government organizations have a full court press underway to obtain data on the alleged test, Aviation Week & Space Technology reports on its web site

If the test is verified it will signify a major new Chinese military capability

Let's hope this test wasn't quite as successful as advertised.
These kinds of deals sure make this development more uncomfortable. But what the hell, Billy Jeff needed campaign cash.
