Russia's Space Weapons Program

But this cant' come as big surprise to anyone. Of course Russia is developing anti-satellite weapons. So are the Chinese, and probably the Indians. Be interesting to see how long it takes until this technolgy falls into the hands of the North Koreans, Iranians, or Pakistanis.

U.S. Military technology is heavily dependent on satellites for intelligence, planning, weapons guidance, and coordination.

Lack of satellites and their data feeds will take all of the precision out of precision guided weapons, and tilt the balance of power back to numbers vs. the “ networked” technology dependent smaller force.

But not to worry; I'm sure that the Obama Charm Offensive will dissuade the Russians.
