Chinese Destroys Satellite with Missile, US worried!

China last week successfully used a missile to destroy an orbiting satellite, U.S. government officials told CNN on Thursday, in a test that could undermine relations with the West and pose a threat to satellites important to the U.S. military.[source]

US is very worried because
"If we, for instance, got into a conflict over Taiwan, one of the first things they'd probably do would be to shoot down all of our lower Earth-orbit spy satellites, putting out our eyes," said John Pike of globalsecurity.org, a Web site that compiles information on worldwide security issues"

eh?

But the US has the capability to shoot down satellites for decades now. Now that USSR is gone, they want to be undisputed King of the Space. How about India? Software to Spaces huh!
