For US only

The hipocrisy of the United States government is stunning.

Last August, Bush's new national space policy prohibited antisatellite weapons tests, yet "preserved its rights capabilities and freedom of action in space."

Meaning that the U.S. can play star wars while the rest of the world must watch.

The Chinese defied this imperious notion and tested an antisatellite weapon Thursday. The U.S. didn't vehemtly oppose the action publicly, but did "express concern."

What crafty wordsmiths.

Bush's space policy also states that the U.S. can "deny, if necessary, adversaries the use of space capabilities hostile to U.S. national interests."

The Chinese shot down one of its old weather satellites, not a U.S. spy satellite or anything involving another nation.

The Chinese aren't North Korea or Iran and shouldn't be treated as such.

Meanwhile, the Bush administation wants to produce a laser to be used against enemy satellites. This tidbit was ignored in CNN's report and buried in paragraph 22 of the New York Times' report.

Also, the U.S. wants to start work on a new nuclear warhead to improve its aging stockpile.

The hipocrisy is too stank to ignore. Somebody open a window.
